Got my new Bourbon McAllisters today, otherwise known as the Amsterdam. These were the last pair of 2nds from the shoebank in a 12d. I don't really notice anything that would cause these to be 2nds other than a couple of marks on the sole. Well, I'm gonna mark up the soles after the first wear outdoors anyway. So I am very, very happy with these. Can't wait to wear them tomorrow.
Fresh out of the box. No polish yet.
Man, do those ever look nice.
