Thanks to MarioImpemba and Cold Iron for bringing them up in the thread and their discussion of them making the 744s another must have for me.
Purchased these as firsts from a vendor on eBay that recently re-stocked... PM me if you want the info.

The shell color on these is a beautiful deep brown that is not as plum-like in color as the AE brown shell.
I am an 8E 5 Last and 8.5D in Daltons and the 744s in 8.5D fit perfect. The toe box is pretty roomy, so no issues with width. The toe is also not as blobby IRL as I had heard others describe and, if it is, it is fine with me.
And, to confirm, these are EXTREMELY comfortable and I could see wearing them whenever I had lots of miles to cover.

The 744 filled the gap in my boot collection for a tobacco brown, casual option.
Much like others have said, I think I have reached a critical mass point and will be hunting only for the next special edition shell or possibly a custom make-up, but no rush.

For comparison, I took a boot group shot.
Left to Right: Fifth Street (black shell), Dalton (chocolate brown calf), Fifth Street (burgundy shell), 744s (Horween 449 brown shell), Fifth Street (brown calf), Dalton (walnut shell), Dalton (walnut calf).

Anyone have the Fifth Street in black calf? I was searching for an example and found Horsey's collection with the Fifth Street in shell. Those look terrific (as does the whole collection).

Thinking of picking up the Fifth Street in black on clearance, as I think it fits nicely into my boot collection and also as a black shoe in general. My boots currently are:
- AS 87 last brown repello suede, Dainite sole
- Alden Indy brownish/reddish
- RL Lindrick shell
- Trickers "not Stow" acorn, Dainite sole
- Peal (C&J) burgundy cordovan, Dainite sole
- Wolverine 744

Yes, this. Just call, and they will email the label to you. Either this or take to a store, whichever is more convenient for you.

I suggested dropping them off in store to bring a retail manager into the loop.  If the manager is halfway decent, he'll take care of the nitty details and maybe apply some pressure on Port Washington to get it taken care of expeditiously.  Couldn't hurt, I don't think.

I will, some time this afternoon. I ordered both black and brown on clearance. These will be my first boots.

Most Nordstroms are carrying red Pantharellas FYI.

I have the Fifth Streets in both brown & black.  I like them both.  They have more toe room than any of my other AE shoes or boots.  My only regret is that I should of gotten the black pair first.

My Christmas present - kind of. I got some cash for Christmas, so I quickly converted it to these. They have been at my local menswear/shoe store for a couple of months and I have been checking them out. So Christmas cash was a perfect fit.

I bring you my new Bourbon Flatirons.

I picked up a pair of the brown calf/brown grain Hamptons and a pair granite grey Parkways on clearance. I'm a 9D on the Brannock device and both fit me well at size 9D (the Parkway is my first try with the 333 last). I think the Hamptons is a keeper, but I'm not so certain about the Parkway. They look really long (they look to be about half an inch to an inch longer than the 1-lasted Hamptons but due to the shape, fits about the same) and I'm not sure what to wear with the grey color. Anyone here with suggestions on what pants goe with granite grey?
post #13949 of 48285

The 333 is exceptionally long, yes.  My SA recommended going down in size.

 

Gray is a neutral color.  You can pair it with anything.  I would avoid other neutral colors.  Otherwise have a blast.  Post some photos.

Thanks for the reply. I think if I sized down on the 333 last, my pinky toe might get squeezed a bit. I guess I'll sit on it for a while before deciding if I will return or not.

Yes, the "V" seems kind of wide, but the shoe fits really well everywhere.
