Please note that the discounted Bourbon polish is different than the new Bourbon offerings. Unfortunately, they still don't have a new Bourbon offered. Anyone know when it'll be offered? Someone said that AE told them that Bourbon is made by just burnishing Walnut, so maybe Walnut would do? I have a feeling it would lighten things up.

IMHO the moctoe version of this is gorgeous. Not posting photo so I don't get yelled at smile.gif Be careful on sizing though and try before you buy.

In my experience the walnut AE polish is actually not that light and is more of a chili color. I mean I used them on walnut Strands I had and they darkened them up considerably over time. I have bourbon shoes too and I was just thinking of using the AE walnut polish, though I'm not sure about it yet.

AE recommends their walnut polish for the New Bourbon.....

"For our new Bourbon Collection of shoes, we recommend using our Allen Edmonds Premium Shoe Polish in Walnut.

Our Bourbon actually begins as a warm, walnut colored leather. After our burnishing techniques take place, we not only heighten the shine but imbue the surface with contrasting low-lights which results in a rich depth of color."

I just ordered a pair of MacNeils for a good price. I got a size 8, does anyone know where to find the insole length and width for their shoes? I tried their website but it doesnt work very well on mobile.

I'm going to be stopping by New York sometime in the coming weeks. What would be the best store to try on a bunch of AE shoes? Rockefeller Center, 43rd St, 44th St, or Madison Ave? I'm hoping to try on at least most of the lasts.

I haven't been to the others, but I like the staff in the Rockefeller Center store.

I sanded the edge off my ebay vintage burgundy shell macneils and then used the neutral AE edge trim, mottled with some chili edge trim, and I love the results. Granted, I bought the shoes for $45, but it worked out great.  You might consider taking some tape and protecting the bottom of the leather upper while sanding the trim so that you don't scratch while sanding. It's easy to do. I don't think I worried about the top of the welt.

I second this...Jay was very prompt and easy to work with.  Due to the time difference (I'm in Germany and he's in Charleston) we worked everything out via email and now my new boots are on the way!  Will post pics once they arrive.  Also, don't forget to leave feedback on AE's website. (744 LTD boots)

 

Also, Kristle from Jeffersonville was just as prompt and easy to work with. (Krause boots)

 

Definitely will contact them after the holiday season dies down...
