Brown BB strands in the wild today:

Does anyone know if the brandy color still exists are there other colors no longer in use? The mto options running through my head are staggering.

I've got another seconds dilemma. Just got my black BB strands. First off, they're supremely comfortable. More so than the standard AE Strands to my oddly shaped feet.

The thing is, there's a pretty big crease in the right side upper.

For you experts out there, is there anything I could do to mitigate this? Or is it not worth keeping? 159$ is a hell of a deal for a great-fitting shoe, and a great-fitting shoe is very hard to find for my feet. Def can't afford the full price, and this was the only second left in size 11 EEE.

What would y'all do?

Do it! Highly recommended! But as you point out that would mean taking a break from AE MTO's...

All things considered, I'd keep 'em

It depends on what you have to wear to work. Do you wear suits every day? If so, a brown 5th Ave might be a good option. If your workplace is business casual, I like the Delray in Chili, the Patriots in burgundy shell, the MacNeil in burgundy shell, and many others.

 

Ideally you don't want to wear a pair of shoes 2 days in a row. If you don't wear "dessy formal" that often, then you are really not going to be alternating with the Park Aves, so you will need a 3rd pair of shoes.

McAllister in whatever shade of brown floats your boat.  Some would say Strand is a better top 2 shoe, but I prefer the walnut McAllister. 

 

If we're dreamin' here I'd go special order on a Jefferson in cappuccino shell.

i don't have to dress up for work in fact i actually wear workwear to work because it goes with what i do lol. i have a few cordovan aldens already was just trying to mix it up some icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

i should have mention i have alden lwb in ravello, alden ptb in #8, and alden single monk strap in #8 on the way.

so right now i'm looking at park avenue in black and strand in what color? i'm probably making the purchase tomorrow so i have time to think it over.

Switch it to the Burgundy Park Ave's and then the Bourbon Strands. Or Walnut McAllisters

Ultimately, the shoe will develop creases anyway. For me, it wouldn't be a deal breaker, especially given the price.
