New webgems are up, a saddle shoe with color, much of the same from the recent webgems.  Another pass for me

Love these. They might be my next AE purchase.

I'm guessing that we might be seeing more WebGems using those red/blue/orange soles until AE uses most of them up.

I like these and I like those soles. There's no way I'd buy a pair though since they're very similar to my Brown/Blue Finch Saddles. I guess we should note that these aren't from the "rough" collection so they might look a little more "dressy" than the Finch.

Can someone explain what exactly "snuff suede" is?  I googled it and didn't come up with a satisfactory answer.

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

 

I have the exact model and love them.  Remarkably comfortable.  I think its the unlined upper.  Looks great with the blue laces.  Have you ever tried some colored flat waxed laces in them?

 

Alas, today I am wearing the Yuma's.  I have a pair of Wolverine 1000 Mile boots but reading this thread everyday somehow magically gravitates my mind to my collection of AE's.  That and I'm originally a WI boy so I feel like an expat supporting his old economy.

Glad to see this thread get back on track, and love the recent pictures!! Although MWS and KMD as always provided a lot of great reading, and when I have time I might still add my 2 Cents worth. Or not.

I also use the Jeffersonvillle Outlet exclusively for seconds, they are great in my experience. And have a sale going until 4/30 where you get 20% off one item per day. That puts shell seconds at $360. I think it is time for me to get an updated list of what is available.....

Is it the sort of thing where they under-promise and over-deliver and I'll get them in a shorter time? It's not a big deal either way, but I'm just curious if anyone has any experience.
Also, apparently they were having a meet the CEO event at the mpls this afternoon - it's pretty damn cool that the CEO is this accessible.
Also also, I tried on a pair of the burgundy shell Leeds, and was blown away by how much better they looked in person, and particularly on my feet, than they do on the website.

Congrats! IMO most shoes are normally in stock or readily available except for shell which is MTO and webgems which are also MTO. Demand of course can change that.

 

Wish I would have known about the CEO being there, would love to meet him and shake his hand and thank him. About a year ago I emailed him about a getting a custom made Dundee in truffle shell. Next day the most senior person at AE called me and apologized that Paul was traveling and couldn't call me?! She spent half an hour on the phone with me making sure I would be happy with the color and that they would fit going over my past order history. Checking how they fit on every thing I had ever purchased, and said apparently I wasn't going to go bare foot any time soon :-) And that Paul had authorized for me to have what ever I wanted made up including the Dundee in every shell color that was available. How cool is that? I took him up on the offer and got all 5. You know those burgundy shell Leeds are one of my favorite shoes to this day. NewShoes1 mentioned a few days ago about how versatile they are and I agree with him, I wear those or my burgundy Dundee's (basically same thing) at least once a week. 

 

And just got this in an email as I was typing:

Thank you. I believe they are from Lands End Canvas, 2012.

Thank you Sir.

I'm in the market for loafers, leaning toward a penny not tassel  My questions are:

 

1) Will burgundy give me more versatility or should I look for dark brown?  

2)  I'm planning on wearing with darker jeans, khakis, perhaps linen pants for summer.  What are the thoughts on the Presidio's?  I like the shape from the longer last.  I am between a 10.5D and 10.  Size down on the 222 last to the 10D?

 

I really appreciate all the feedback from this thread.  I read daily and one of these days I will post my collection.
