I just checked my email history; I snagged JAB shoe trees at $6.02/ea on July 16 of last year. Here's hoping we don't need to wait until November!

You can never have enough . If you fret about spending $300 on shoes now you aint seen nothing. Mess with that stuff and you'll find yourself dropping $750 a pop and you'll be looking at another pair you gotta have while they'r still in the mail Dont take my word for it. Go lurk around the alden thread . Those poor guys got problems . Not only is the stuff outrageously priced .Its hard to find . Just when you realize you cant live without that pair of color4 captoe boots w/commando soles you find they'r all sold out and the manufacturer dosen't when if ever they will ever be made again . This is no way to live . You just stay away from that stuff you be a lot happier and certainly a lot wealthier . Dont say you wern't warned

Funny that you should mention that boot. Guess what was waiting for me when I got home from work last night? I bagged another unicorn although not a #4, still hunting that one:

 

 

The Townley, provided all is well with it and I assume it will be, will be my 14th AE shell footwear. It takes a lot of years to collect them but then again it can with Alden too. My preference is AE for several reasons. In addition to the vision of the CEO customer service is one of the top reasons. From what I can tell CS is something that you work up to at AE, not exactly a common situation in US Manufacturing but I wish it was a lot more common.

 

I saw my first shell shoe in the display window of the Exchange on the base in San Diego back in the late 70's, a black cherry wingtip. I stood there and stared at it for a long time. It cost a months pay as an E-squat but I swore that someday I would own it. It took a lot of years, taking care of the mortgage, bills, retirement fund, and the family needs always came first. And I'm glad to see others on here do the same. It wasn't until fairly recently that I found myself where I could start collecting shell. Yes it is addicting! AE as a company ultimately stands for most of the things I believe in so it will always be the place I turn to first. But for boots and #4 shell the hunting is kind of thin out there. Here is my unicorn that will never be beat when all is said and done:

 

1000

 

The fact that they are Allen Edmonds makes it even better IMO.

So you were the one who picked up that Alden boot! Very jealous. It's gorgeous; and better yet, it's got the Horween stamp right where you can see it every time you put it on.

Glad to hear the Franciscan will be going on sale - I've had my eye on that as my next purchase.

The Rutledge looks much better here than on their site. Will make a note to examine them more closely at my next retail store visit.  I have too many blacks and need to diversify.  The chili To Boot looks nice also.
