post #19801 of 46526
I got the all football nuemok web gems and was wondering, are these going to be impervious to just about anything, being made of football leather?

Not sure about what, if any, upkeep is needed.

Also, pulled the trigger on the brown Jefferson's today. smile.gif

I emailed about Bayfield about a day ago(haven't heard back, but I have patience). One was I feel shell just show off better if in cap toe or plain toe boot form, two was feeling Bayfield in Shell would be easier to dress up or down, three it will be more unique because there has been a few shell variety of Datlons already out there. I also inquired about having a Eagle County made with Dublin leather and differnt soles....

 

love the Promontory Point and Gwinnett...still hoping for a plain toe boot from AE though.

I bought my all football neumok through the AE retail store, and the salesman suggested using AE neutral premium shoe polish. I'm not sure how necessary that is, but better safe than sorry, I suppose.

For those with snuff suede shoes, do any of you have experience

with Saphir suede & nubuck spray?

Hanger project has it back in stock and I was thinking of picking

some up.  Would medium brown be closer in color to snuff suede?

Natural sounds like the right idea; I wouldn't want to lose the color texture. Maybe just a light coat but I kind of want them to have a slight worn look....maybe?

I decided to pull the trigger on a pair of Walnut Players (seconds) from the shoe bank. The sales rep over the phone told me to size up 1/2 for this shoe compared to my Park Avenue 5 last size. I've scoured this thread for talk of the Players and it seems that for the people that it did fit for, they just went with their normal size. Only a few sized up. I hope mine fit well.

You can always return them

I just received snuff suede players. I wear a 9.5E in the 5 last. I went with a 10D in the players - it is more snug and narrow. The right shoe fits perfectly but the left is tight on the ball of my foot.

I just scored a pair of Boca Ratons through the Amazon deal myself!

If you wear 9D for Elgins (5 last, dublin leather) and the Cordovan Townleys (1 last) and an 8.5 E in the Park Avenue (5 last), do you think a 9D will cut it for the Boca Ratons (3 last)?

A coat of wax polish helps.

Wow, those are much nicer in real life, than on the website. nod[1].gif

I almost wish I hadn't seen this, my wallet can't handle this abuse.

RIght after Mr. Grangaards email offering a deal on MTO I emailed him about getting a custom longwing in a lighter colored shell. We had a nice back and forth email re: my collection of AE's. On Monday I got a call from his team and we discussed some options. Yesterday I received samples of the shell walnut and shell cappuccino. My initial thought was to get the Macneil in shell walnut cordovan, with a double reverse welt sole. Although, there is the William Williams and Larchmont that intrigue me also. I currently own the Williams in black custom calf, but do not have a pair of Macneils. What is the opinion of the loyal SF readers. Is the Macneil the best way to go, or should I consider a different style? My concern is that since the Macneil is made in cordovan already, in 2 colors, that is may come available at some point in the future in other colors as those colors become available... and my MTO might be a commons shoe. But, if I go with the Larchmont or Williams, I will truly have a shoe that is basically a one of a kind. Thoughts everyone???

I'm a fan of the larchmont in general, so that would be my pick.

You probably don't want to hear from me, then. I took advantage of the extensive customization possibilities inherent in his offer by having a MacNeil done up in... burgundy cordovan, just in a size not currently offered as "a commons shoe". wink.gif

It twists my brain a bit to think of such a sleek gunboat-esque shoe, but I think the Larchmont would look phenomenal in a lighter shade of shell.
