I don't often see the black cherry shell, they look amazing.

Thank you! Next I plan to get some lighter shades of shell, I.e. cappuccino, whiskey.

The results speak for themselves - very nice! Very difficult to get a mirror on light color shoes.

Looking to buy it in a size 11D if anyone knows of a site.
Thanks

I am looking for one, too. Grey is on sale 199 at AE website. Shoebank has seconds 279 D sizes. Finally it may be on Amazon 25% sale which does not have my size but have D sizes.
Me, I am waiting for next sale.

How are AE's socks?
They're on sale now, worth a try?

I've only tried the wool socks but they are quite nice. They are on the thick side so consider that when buying as they may affect the fit if you're used to wearing thinner socks. For example, Polo and Pantherella dress socks run much thinner than AE.

With that in mind, $5 for a quality pair of made in the US socks is a pretty good deal.

Or does it need a fresh and clean sole? 

Hey guys, posted this a few days ago and never heard any responses. Any thoughts? 

Thanks

I emailed them for you (Hey Andrew! You're on Dappered as well aren't you?):

If a cobbler damages the structure of the shoes, we would be unable to disassemble and reattach new component pieces. Adding heel taps or sole savers to a pair of shoes should not impact the recraftability of your shoes. Thank you for your interest in Allen Edmonds recrafting service.

Best regards,

Thanks Acousticfoodie, and yep, on Dappered as well! So it sounds like as long as I make sure the cobbler on affixes the rubber to the bottom of the used sole, and doesn't try to remove the sole incorrectly it will be recraftable later. Awesome. Now i just need to figure out how to say all this in Turkish

I love Allen Edmonds socks!!!

Just started wearing them a few months ago. Before that I bought Nordstrom wool socks every year at the anniversary sale. These are far superior. I have replaced most of my rotation. I just wish there were some additional designs, especially argyle.

I personally like them, though as a poster said above, they are a bit thicker than my other socks.

Coming from someone else that's in college, I like my Elgin's. They look good with jeans or in a dressier setting.

The Elgin is a fantastic shoe.  I was sorry to see it discontinued.
