These look as if Granny OptoDoc patched holes in my boots with one of Grandpa OptoDoc's old Tweed Jackets...without her glasses on. They look horrendous to me. I can see this working, but the incorporation of the Tweed in this boot looks sloppy to me.

Thanks.

Actually, if Brett arranges for you to pick up your Allen Edmond Sale selection(s) at a local Nordstroms Department Store, you will receive a complimentary free professional shine from their in-store shoe shine stand!  I found they use a combination of great products, creams, waxes, and balms . . .  that are not Saphir, but VERY GOOD.

David,

Brett may actually take an order over email and allow the person to pick it up?

I am also waiting for the following to go on sale:

 

 

Neumok

 


 

Daltons

 

 


 

Strand

 

 


 

Maxfield

 

 


 

Mcallister

 

 


 

Lasalle

 

AE had their annual sale a couple of months ago and the Mcallisters were on sale.

So, I contacted Nordstrom for a price match and they obliged. Right after that, Nordstrom placed a sale on the same shoes that AE had on sale.

I assumed my price match alerted them to place the same shoes on sale. haha

These were included in the photos of the Fall 2013 collection I saw.

They remind me of a higher priced boot that BB had in a catalog a couple of years back. J

AE Greenwich wholecut in tan. Finally picked up a pair on eBay in my size icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

 

 

 

Interesting lacing pattern.  I've never seen that.  Asymmetrical lacing to go with asymmetrical shoes?

Yes, a local pick up (and free professional shine) is available.  Just call him after you get his email.

Anyone?

Dwayne Wade needs our help. It seems he is stealing his fashion sense from the before mentioned Granny OptoDoc.

 

Before last night's game:

 

 

From earlier in the season:

 

 

An intervention must be scheduled soon.

 

 

 

And just because I laugh out loud every time I see this picture...

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 85

 

The Biebs could use our help as well.

Good grief.

Going back to the lack of full brogues,

 

Why can't Allen Edmonds do something like this?

The LaSalle is on the 8 last and there are countless posts comparing its fit to the 5 last.  A few seconds searching would reveal that the 8 last is a favorite of many, but it is narrower than the 5 last.

I was buffing my black Ashtons before wearing them for the first time today and I noticed that the leather of the left shoe on the left side of the split toe looks old and dry; like old, dry, wrinkled skin. If you look at the leather of both sides of the split toe there is a clear difference on close inspection. Should I be worried about the life of the shoe due to this or is it just a visual imperfection? I would post pictures, but its very subtle and I'm not sure it would come through in pictures. I am now treating it with condition/cleaner to see if I can make it any better.

 

 

 

Edit: Grabbed my macro lens and got some shots. Click the images for much higher resolution.
