I bought my townley as part of 2 for $250 deal so basically I paid $125 for it. AE SA accidentally included 1st quality townley cordovan on list and AE honored my order. Great shoes. I take all of AE shoes TTS.

The Leeds are weak? You're weak.

These are the new Leeds. These are the Glengarry Leeds. To you they're gold, and you don't get them. Why? Because to give them to you will be throwing them away. They're for closers.

Was hoping to get some sizing advise from the experts.  I wear an 8D in Strand.  I want to get a Leeds.  What would be the equivalent size?  I've been reading that the 5 last is about 1/2 size longer than the other lasts.  So does this mean I should size up?  How about the width?

post #18650 of 46866
For me, a 13E in the 5 last = a 14D in the 1 last (since they don't make 13.5).

I would suggest either an 8 D, 8.5D or 8.5C...I don't know if they still make C widths, though.

If you're confident the 5 last fits you well and are ordering online my first guess would be an 8.5D. If you're not confident about your 5 last fit, try an 8D, as you might actually be a 7.5E on the 5 last.

How does the MacNeil fit compared to Alden Barrie last? I am a 9.5D in Alden LWB.

TIA.

I take a 8.5D in the Barrie last and 9D in the MacNeil. I think the MacNeil is a smidge more roomy overall but has a more tapered toe box.

I just got off the phone with Rick. He just sold me the last 12 D. Thanks so much for letting me know!!

 

IMPORTANT: He only has D width.

I like that contrast! Personally I like the look. It is just plain wrong to read that it "It cooled down enough" though LOL.

 

I'm looking forward to finally being able to drain the gas out of the snowblower. Black calf Bayfields and matching dark outfit mourning yet another snow fall. Letting mother nature handle the contrast today:

b) Any issues with PA shell? I was going to go with Carmina (I dislike Alden peepwall[1].gif), but if there aren't any problems with PA shell, I'd rather save the $400 dollars.

I think the shell PA have been out for close to a year now.

 

As to issues, some do not care for the short cap on the PA. I like it myself however. And the AE shell usually comes with a fair amount of cream on them. You can clean them up and get a pretty decent shine out of them with a little work. I have shell from AE, Alden, and C&J and feel in the end they are pretty much equal in all aspects. Carmina from the pictures I have seen usually has a very high shine. I wouldn't trade my black shell PA for them however:

SCORE! cheers.gif Thank you jvc44!

 

They had one more pair of 10D in stock when I called right before they opened. Rick said the phone was ringing off the hook already. sungmineyo thanks for posting pictures of yours, they look very much like Dark Cognac, ie: Horween #449. And they look very much like a shoe version of the Bayfield. If they would have been the Bayfield in #449 shell I would have walked to Ohio to get them!

You know, I've never been to Philly...

Cold Iron, one of my next purchases will be the brown CXL Bayfields from Lands' End. I sure wish they still made them in black as well.

 

If you need a break from the snow, the Baton Rouge Blues Festival is tomorrow and the forecast calls for blue skies and mid 70's biggrin.gif
