Allen Edmonds Appreciation Thread - Page 8

post #106 of 46974
I'm jumping on the AE bandwagon as well, just got a pair of Evanstons. I love closeouts.

I'm still a law student but I have grown to love AE shoes thru deals like Tony offered and ebay.
My Collection so far:


L-to-R
Fifth Ave in Walnut Calf (only pair bought new)
Delray (newest ebay acquisition)
Lloyd Wingtip
Clifton in Burgundy

True. But that said, I really like Allen Edmonds shoe conditioners and polishes.

The English have jacked up chiclets and therefore I cannot respect their shoes.

Can't go wrong with the Park Avenue, but I will say that if you can live with the Soho, you can get it MUCH cheaper! I don't know about the black Delray... I have the chili Delray and really like it, it's a nice shoe, but black? That, and don't go TOO too hard on the AE's, you'll discover Alden, decide if you like shell or not, and go from there.

I am not a huge fan of the Augustas, but if you like them get them.

How much more cheap? What price range do you think is realistic for a NEW pair of Soho shoes? I can get Park Avenues for about $260.

The Soho was just discontinued so they could be bought for about $100.
I don't think they have any Sohos left, but I would still have a look.
Call this number for the shoe bank:
262-284-7158
Or email Karen

I hope that helps.

X-post. This comparison has been done before, but I couldn't help it:

-The widest point (ball of foot) is further forward on the Chelsea than the PA and it is also wider than the PA at its widest point.
-While the #5 last is AE's longest, I consider the PA to fit very tts. Otoh, I would need an 8/8.5D on the 202, perhaps even an 8/8.5C.

Who's blobby now?!
