post #13711 of 49627
I recently purchased both the Fifth Ave's and Strand from Brooks Brothers and had a question regarding the soles:

Would a cobbler be able to just fix the tiny puzzle like rubber sole piece when it gets worn down? I previously had the non Brooks Brothers version of the Park Ave and it had a full heel piece.

^^ yes, but they will replace the rubber and the top layer of leather together.  See Here:

Thanks. Not a shoe repair guy but it would be cost efficient to only replace only that jigsaw puzzle piece IMHO.  Hell, this is probably a job someone could do at home. Of course, that would put a lot of cobblers out of business eek.gif

The answer in essence is no. I wish this was possible so I wouldn't have to get heel taps. It's not cost efficient to get that heel replaced every time the rubber dovetail gets worn down. I think it's about a $20 - $30 job here in NY.

A few people claimed to have ordered bourbon McAllisters during the Black Friday sale. What came of that? Please, post pictures, or it didn't happen. fight[1].gif

I recall seeing some on foot also besides Bucksfan's

Just noticed a grey version of the Eagle County under AE's clearance section for $197. I find it more attractive than the black. Has anyone tried on or bought the Eagle County? Thoughts on fit?
post #13719 of 49627
I have the Eagle County in tan. It is very comfortable, and fit is true to size. A little bit snug, but still comfortable, if you planning on wearing thicker/winter socks. You can go 1/2 size larger if you plan on wearing thicker socks all the time. They are comfortable from the start, did not have to break them in that much.

Thanks! Those look like damn fine shoes. Do you know why they weren't listed on the website?

Missing out on the $99 bourbon and $99 elgin censored.gif

They were a custom make up for urbandaddy.  http://perks.urbandaddy.com/national/promotions/allen-edmonds.html

 

The seconds came through the AE outlet / shoe bank system.

Thanks for the responses. Seems a bit ridiculous to get the entire heel replaced. Do you think the cobbler would replace it with another "dovetail heel" or just a normal all black rubber heel that most Allen Edmonds shoes have?

Does that mean that they can't be had anymore in the future??? Wow, how the $%!@ did I miss this one.......those are amazing. Not just looks, but the price...

 

On another note, does anyone have recommendations for bad weather days? Weather doesn't get terrible here in SoCal but I still don't feel good about wearing leather soled shoes out in the rain. Are there any good alternatives? I'm thinking rubber soled but a lot of those look very clunky.
