Guys, for those that have the Amok, do you put shoes trees in them? The boot is unlined so I'm not sure if it's needed.

 

Any tip to get rid of the squeaking on the Dalton?

I don't use shoe trees for my Amok's.  

 

 

 

My recent purchases from the ongoing sale.  Brown Neumok and Walnut Jermyn.  Pictures don't do the Jermyn justice, I went in planning to get Strands but immediately forgot about those upon seeing these in person.

I agree about the Jermyn - I got the brown Jermyn and it looks much better than the website photos.

Can't help w/your issues, but I do like the herringbone sock look fing02[1].gif

Just wondering if it is the "proper" way to tie the shoe laces for the eyelets to come close together such that the tongue is completely covered. I've been told both yes they should close completely and no, there's no standard look. Most of the time, it forms a V shape for me.

Feet are different.  For me, the quarters close completely.  For others, they get a "V".  Either is fine.  If the shoe fits, wear it.

Quick question, I really loved the AE Strand shell cordovan in walnut but its been discontinued according to a sales clerk becasue they are all out of leather uppers. Is this something that they restock every year or was it a one off?

To each their own, but truthfully, all shoes can benefit from shoe trees... cheap shoes, expensive shoes, lined, unlined, you name it.  Trees have multiple positive effects on shoes, especially given that they are generally the only "treatment" that is given to the interior of the shoe.  Even if the Neumoks won't necessarily benefit from trees by reducing toe creasing, the trees will still help the soles dry in proper alignment after exposure to wet pavement.  Also, the cedar cuts down on mold and mildew, and will keep the shoes smelling fresh for years to come.  The sweat from your foot which is detrimental to long term leather health will be drawn out much quicker by the cedar.  They are an inexpensive investment that will prolong the life of any shoe. 

 

I think the Jermyn should be a strong contender for anyone looking for a tassel loafer.  I think they are a beautiful interpretation of a classic style.

The gent is speaking truth. I use trees in unlined shoes.

I have to disagree with you IF the squeak is coming from the tongue rubbing against the lining.  Even AE recommends using talcum powder (baby powder) to fix a squeaking tongue, and they consider it a natural occurence that happens from time to time (it happens in all brands) due to the difference in leather textures.  Returning an otherwise acceptable pair of shoes is too much of a gamble, given that he can't be sure his next pair will be to his liking.
