My first Allen Edmond Boots that will expand my small collection of "dress shoes" - since I moved to Montana.

Very nice, David.  I like those.  Are you going to keep the red laces?

 

 

Good question.  The red laces are growing on me, although AE sometimes includes both red and brown laces in the box.

 

I was first attracted to the Long Branch with red lacer at Nordstroms web site, and the AE site did not exhibit the choice.

He does have a couple of great looking vintage pairs.  Whenever I look back at the early days of this thread I am reminded of how slow of a start it got off to.  It took nearly two years for this thread to reach it's 400th post.  That many posts happen within a couple of weeks now.

New to me Burgundy Shell Leeds. I went TTS size in them and they are snugger than my 5, 7, and 8 last shoes, but I wouldn't size up on them.

After some alcohol to the lining, a damp cloth, Renovateur, Saphir Cordovan Cream, and some AE brown edge dressing Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

EDIT: Not sure what is going on with pics in my post, but some are not showing. Most importantly the after. They are showing up when I choose which pics to upload, but not in my post. Will try to upload that last pic later.

When I started perusing this thread a little over a year ago, it was about half the size it is now. It took me quite awhile to read through from page one, but it was worth it. I'm glad I got on board when I did, as that same task seems much more daunting now.

Does anyone know if it is safe to use Renomat on the unlined neumoks

I wouldn't.  I think it'll soak in like a sponge.

Thanks much, guys.  I enjoy the walnut shell as I seem to be one of the few deprived who doesn't own any (Alden) ravello or whiskey.  Yet...

Used to think that there was no difference in brands of shoes, walked around in $20 State Street Mardell Oxford shoes now I am sporting Allen Edmonds Fiesols and let me tell you I can feel the difference.  I like to say, blind fold me, spin me around five times and strap on either the State Street or my Allen Edmonds and I can tell the difference real easily.  The State Street are like wearing lead weights on my feet.

I've had a pair of strands for a few months and they seem to be wearing in differently.  The right shoe has some creases as is to be expected(they are shoes after all) but the left shoe has much more pronounced wrinkling and more hairline wrinkles across the toe.  It looks like the leather insole is pulling on the side of the left shoe which may be causing some of the weird wrinkling.  Am I just being overly picky/crazy or is this unusual?

My kenwoods and mctavishes haven't worn unevenly so I don't think it's the way I walk or anything.  Just picked up a pair of Nathan's(Fifth Aves renamed for JA BanK). Haven't worn em yet though.

Wow, that's a first for me.  Those don't even look like the same calfskin that Strands are made from.  The leather looks like it has very little rigidity.  Are they firsts or seconds?  New or used?  

 

You reference the insole "pulling on the side of the left shoe," is that something you are seeing from the inside?  Can you post a picture?

That looks like excess creasing/wrinkling. Do you put shoes trees in your shoes when they are not being worn? It's possible it's also a sizing issue.
