Allen Edmonds Appreciation Thread - reviews, pictures, sizing, etc... - Page 4688  

post #70306 of 70737
After a couple times wearing the Rutledges I picked up during the clearance sale, I decided that I wanted to give them a good polish on the toe cap and decide what I wanted to do with the burnish on the rest of the shoe.

I noticed there is an another 11D on the shoe bank right now for the same price I paid ($175ish), I would pick that up if I were you. It's easily the nicest shoe I own.

Let me know what you think!

I am going to be listing quite a few of my Allen Edmonds shoes that I would like to give another home. Shoes are all in the size 9E. They come in their original boxes, shoe trees, and shoe bags. All shoes have been worn less than 5-6 times (most of them worn at most 3 times). Shoes have always been brushed before and after wear + shoe trees inserted. I've also applied some Saphir Renovateur on the shoes. 

Some of the models - Dalton boot (dark chili), Longbranch (brown chromexcel), Mora 2.0 (dark brown), Dundee 2.0 (dark brown), MacNeil (black), MacNeil (dark chili), Strand (walnut), Grayson loafer (dark brown), Ascher loafer (walnut).

Shoes will be listed at $150 - which includes shoes, original box, shoe trees, shoe bags, and shipping. ONLY SHIPPING TO CONUS.

Feel free to PM me if you would like me to reserve smile.gif

Hope some of you gentlemen will welcome these shoes into your homes! Thank you for your considerations!

Huge thanks to @parkman24! Just received my Long Branches. I have to say, I think they are even less worn than he described. Seriously, these things are amazing! And like walking on air.

Since I had previously discussed sizing differences between Dalton and LBs... These LBs seem slightly longer, a little wider, and have more volume all around. Nothing some boot socks and tight laces can't take care of. Especially at this price!

Those look fantastic. Did you stick with your 65 size or go down a half size?

I think they look good! I was debating picking up a pair and attempting to darken the entire cap. Thought this might make the burnishing not stand out as much.

If I had to pick one id say the neumok fits more like the mctavish - just because they're both significantly roomier than the strand (which coincidentally I'm wearing right now).

I was curious as I want some navy neumonks. The McTavish fit good, but I can't get a strand to fit at all.

Thanks!  I did.  I'm probably between an 11D-E in the 65, as they fit a bit snug on the outside of my foot.  The 11D Rutledge fits like a glove.

Thanks! I just used some walnut cream and then neutral wax, which really brought the colors out and blended in the burnishing.  If you want to strip it, use renomat or I use a cloth damp with acetone.  One of mine had a darker burnish and I cleaned it up with the acetone, it was shocking how little it took to clean it off.  It essentially erased it.  Other than the burnish, that shoe is incredible.  The leather is so much nicer than what is used on the standard shoes.

I think the Long Branch pattern has a little more volume by design, to accommodate boot socks. That, and cowhide doesn't pull as tightly against the last as calfskin...

Definitely. I have a pair of LBs and quite a few pairs of Daltons, all in 9EEE. The Daltons look much sleeker and are not nearly as roomy as the LB.

I love my long branches. Once they're on I never want to take them off.

I also went down a half size, on Earl's suggestion. Both because of the size of the 333 compared to the 65, and because he told me the 10.5 was pretty rough and the 10 looked great. He was spot on on both counts.

Those look great. Good patina and just enough shine.

That is exactly how i would describe the Danbury. It's essentially a quarter brogue Carlyle.  It's on the same last as well.
