Very disappointed with the shoe selection for the 91st Anniversary Sale.

 

I already own Walnut McAllisters and Tan Sedonas.

 

I wish they had the purple suedes (formerly webgem)... those shoes would be perfect for $199 (similar to strandmark).

You can get the Bourbon McAllisters for $249. They will be the combination tap sole one's, however. Dappered link: http://dappered.com/2013/04/allen-edmonds-91st-anniversary-sale-top-10/

The CEO is running amuck, or is that Amok in the thread the last few weeks. Glad to have you, Paul. Thanks for the insight? 

 

Since you're reviewing things... any truth to the cappuccino shell (especially McAllisters) rumors we hear in early spring?

I missed the purple webgems too... Kicking myself for not grabbing those when they were offered.

 

On the other hand, I was looking to pick up the merlot McAllisters so I'm glad they were on sale for the 91st.

I couldn't justify $345 for purple suede shoes... def would've paid $199.

 

I already own the Walnut McAllisters... I can't get myself to get a 2nd model of the same shoe in another color. Only exception would be the Park Avenues... I have them in black but am looking for a sale on the merlot/burgundy (whatever exact color it is in).

The smell of a brand-new AE leather sole is fantastic...

After looking at those photos I had to go thumbs-up Al's comment. Y'all are some seriously lucky goons. nod[1].gif

For all those that got the gorgeous Townley's, be jealous of my 15 year old AE Margates!!  rimshot.gif

 

Actually, I recently gave them the Saphir strip down, Reno, and glacage treatment.  They look pretty good now. 

 

I also have a legitimate question: the Margates are on the 3 last (same as MacNeil), if I get the MacNeil in the same size, will it fit the same?  Is there a noticeable difference between shell fit and calf fit?

 

Thanks in advance, gentlemen.

MacNeils are actually on the 7 last.  The Broadstreets are on the old 3 last.  I find the Mac Neil a little more roomy than the Broadstreet in the same size.  Granted, this may be because the Broadstreet is a balmoral, while the MacNeil is a blucher.

Agreed.  Very jealous these were only D width.  My big feet (12 EEE) get in the way sometimes.  Just got notice that my dark brown shell Dundees shipped.  Supposedly the same color, so hopefully soon I have another color comparison shot.

The Margates are on the 7-Last as well.  I assume he just misspoke.  The fit comparison between the 3-73 last and the 7-97 last is quite a substantial difference, though.  For what it's worth, I have the opposite experience.  My 3-73 lasted shoes are significantly roomier than my 7-97 lasted ones. 

post #18945 of 48278

Yes, they are on the 7, and yes I did mis-type. 

 

Same question though - Will there be any difference in fit between shell and calf shoes on the 7 last?  These Margates are 9.5E and fit very well.
