I think they will grow on you, especially when the compliments start rolling in.

Thanks. I have no gap and a lot less play when I tighten the laces. Local store has a 10D on order for me so I'll test those before I wear these and just swap if it works out better.

I'm surprised these run long as a 10.5 is perfect for me in the Carlyle.

Good to have you back @garland

Is that split-toe a boot?  (middle of 2nd row)  Is that an AE model??
I'd be interested in this if middlep doesn't take you up on it. (I'm generally a 13B, which I think takes the XL shoe trees.)

Thanks for the offer, @M635Guy. Unfortunately I'm a 9D, so XLs won't work for me.

Yup, that split toe boot is a now discontinued Portland on the 333 last.

When I search the Shoebank by last, the Madison Park Shows up when I select "2 last (222)"

Interestingly, the Players 2.0 black grain shows up when I select "8 last (108)"

Not to question your Southern drawl, but I've never said or heard "y'alls" before. Tennessee drawl may be distinct from Mississippi drawl. Course, if yer up der in dem der Tennessee mountains, der ain't no tellin whatcha mighten be uh-hearin.

 

edit: just to clarify, I mean "y'alls" with the "s" on it. I say "y'all" every time I intend "you" in the plural.

I hear it often out near the Smoky Mountains. The context is usually "all y'alls". Then of course there is the possessive "y'all's". It's all pretty peculiar but it grows on you!

I've heard a Pittsburghese variant: "yin's" in the past... ?  I grew up in Missouri with family in SE Missouri and SW TN (shelby county) and never heard a y'alls... though after nearly a decade in Texas it feels awkward and damn near improper to say "you all" in a colloquial setting...

Ok so I was doing some looking for the new thread (btw, any news on that?) and found this soo helpful post by @mdubs from the MTO thread.  So I thought that I would separate out the sole part so that this post can be linked to on the new thread.  Note: this is for the now dead mto program but just shows all the soles that have been offered through Allen Edmonds (excluding golf spikes)

To say "all y'all" is technically redundant but I hear it here and there. "Y'all's" is second person plural possessive and I can't believe @redmusic1 hasn't heard it and doesn't routinely use it. Eg, "hey Greg and Duane, how's y'all's new album coming along?"

Also, a tip to any Hollywood screen writers ... folks down South don't use "y'all" when speaking in second person singular. That is only heard on TV. If someone were to walk up to me and say, "how are y'all doing?" I would immediately turn around and see who must have snuck up behind me.

There are places where it is used like that, though I think the origins of it are using it as an intended singular case with an oblique reference to his/her "people" (family/coworkers/business/whatever). There's a LOT of nuance to the use and intent of y'all. Hollywood generally screws it up.
