First time poster.

 

Has anyone ever heard of this site before?

 

http://www.montanorealty.com.au/allen-edmonds-norwich-cordovan-monk-straps-2022-brown-genuine-shell-c-shoes-casual-shoes-cn9301206-p-16613.html

 

They're listing pretty good prices on AE shoes, but it seems a bit sketchy to me.  Anyone ever ordered from here before?

 

 

 

701 units in stock.... Yeah I am going out on a limb and saying this site is not legit in the slightest. Not to mention the $100 USD cordovan.

 

 

Great looking Rogues! Welcome to the forum!

I found it to smooth out with a liberal application of conditioner followed by a very light polishing.

Man, there better magically be a pair of those on shoe bank in my size when the sale starts, or I may have to find a way to explain to my wife why I *needed* a pair of $650 shoes. Hmm. Early Valentine's Day gift to myself?

agreed definitely looks sketchy.  There is also no contact info at all about the company, just a form to submit.

Here's most of what I currently own: 

 

 

 

From bottom left: walnut Warwicks, custom color (maroon) Neumoks, walnut Cornwallis (surprisingly dark, closer to bourbon, but I like them), gray Long Branch, 'russet brown' (close to oxblood IMO) Freiburgs 

 

I also have a pair of black Carlyles that I only wear to weddings, which are boxed in the garage. Plus the pair of Daltons I'm on the fence about, from a couple of pages ago. 

I don't know when the cognac was discontinued.  Sometimes its just called 'dark brown' and sometimes 'dark brown cognac' which makes it confusing.  I think the recent clearance price was a great deal for this shoe.  By the way, I hope you end up keeping those Daltons, I thought they looked great.

My current collection; thought I'd get in on this, as I love seeing others' collections. Clockwise from top left: Walnut Strand (w/darker patina), Brown Mora 2.0, Black McAllister, Walnut Grain MacNeil, Walnut McGregor, Cognac McTavish, Dark Chili Franciscan, Natural Tan McTavish, Dark Chili McAllister, Merlot Byron. J

that's crazy how dark that strand is.  Is that just from age, or from the treatment you use?

Doesn't come off with conditioner. I would not take the risk to try to take the glazing off

How do you all feel about the Strandmoks in black?

I need a pair of casual shoes that work with black, tobacco, dark gray, dark blue, and gray casual pants (that's my whole wardrobe until spring). The Long Branch boots I bought didn't work out and the salesperson thinks I should try something in the 65 last.

Any thoughts on the University, on the 333 last? Compared to the 5, it sounds a little wider?

Mainly from polishing with dark brown over the the years... I was asked by a friend the other day if it was dark chili, but no it's just my own concoction. J

Hit and miss shoe to shoe.

 

My Flatirons one creased a lot in an unattractive way right from the start, the other was lovely with a gentle crease. The last pair I got has been mild and nice. My Rogues creased more than that, but not in a bad way at all.

I just received these MacNeil 2.0's from Shoe Bank.  I have never owned a pair of Allen Edmonds shoes before so I am not sure if the following pictures would be considered flaws.  The amount I saved was $85 so I am not sure it is worth it.

 

 

The points on the wingtips are not fastened down all the way.  Again, not sure if this is normal or not.

 

Certainly this is a flaw as it is a scrap on the leather.  I am assuming I will be able to polish this up and make look better.  Just want to know if you think this is acceptable in your opinions.

 

This looks like a damaged welt.  Not sure what happened here but the other shoe does not have this but have seen this before on Aldens.  Acceptable?

 

This welt looks pretty inconsistent.  Not sure what this is all about.

Wider at the wide part, but it has a narrower toe. It's long, but from the wide part of your foot to the heel (which is what matters) it is true to size. Slightly higher instep, too. 5 lasts in my brannock pinch my toe and crush my instep, but the 333 is comfortable with just a little break in. I'm a higher instep, but otherwise pretty average foot shape.

Pinking seems to be like that on lots of AEs I've seen recently. Looks just like the pinking on the Larchmont firsts I got last week.

 

They're from the shoe bank. That means they're seconds and they're supposed to be flawed. They're not much worse than firsts I've received.

 

Personally, I doubt anyone would notice any of those flaws. If they fit, polish out the scuff and relish the price. If you're worried about it, eat the $10 and send 'em back.
