post #24631 of 52471

Before I got into shoes and caring for them, I used Leather Honey on one of my belts and was really happy with how supple it made it. However, Leather Honey darkens leather, so I wouldn't recommend it for general use.

I have seen the error of my ways, and have repented.

My Wolverine 1000 Mile Montgomery boots arrived today, and are definitely not what I had in mind.

I have ordered a pair of AE Bayfields, and will endure the requisite lashes for straying.

I also don't think I can return the Wolverines, so if anyone's interested, shoot me a PM. I'll let them go cheap.

Can you take some pictures of them and post?

good luck finding a buyer for those boots!  What were you thinking buying those??????  They have no class and look cheapish.

Thanks. Like I don't feel bad already... shog[1].gif

They're not cheap or anything, really, just different than I expected and won't go with tweed and flannel like I'd hoped. With jeans or more of a SW&D vibe, they'd be cool.

I've ready packed them back up, but here's a Google Images pic:

A little harsh, no? They look OK to me in the pic above.

hey man...  We have all (myself most definitely included) had our "WTF was I thinking!" moments.  Don't beat yourself up about it, the agony will go away the second you pull your new AE's out of the box...  That wonderful smell is enough to cure any amount of sadness, grief, or guilt.  I'll will never forget the smell of my first pair of AE's when I took them out of the box.  Reminds me of hard work and high quality (my father is a carpenter so I grew up around a similar smell).  Just think, every time you put on your new AE boots in the coming decades you'll have a good chuckle about the time you almost went with another pair of boots.

Don't feel too bad. Theres a guy on eBay who's sold like 8 pairs @ $279.50

 

http://www.ebay.com/itm/160970902918

 

Just be patient. They're not my style, but let's face it - neither are corrected grain slip-ons and if you saw my office you'd think those were the best.

 

You'll sell 'em...don't take too much of a loss - that'll probably make it hurt even more.

Haha... Thanks for the support, guys.

The seller is letting me return them, so shipping to the States (and Canada Customs fees... sigh) aside, no harm done.

Lands' End figures I should have my Bayfields by the end of next week, just in time for a vacation to England and Scotland. They'll get some miles right away.

Yeah, that's who I bought mine from, though at a discounted rate. They're letting me return them, so all good.

Some very interesting / odd / fashion forward / whatever you like to call them "prototype" AEs are popping up on eBay.

 

Here's a link to one of the listings: http://www.ebay.com/itm/New-ALLEN-EDMONDS-Prototype-Green-Leather-Oxford-Wingtips-Shoes-9-D-375-/151079199474?pt=US_Men_s_Shoes&hash=item232d05a2f2

Looks like something the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles would wear on a night out on the town.

If you search "Allen Edmonds Prototype" they have yellow, green, red, and blue. Very interesting. I personally don't like it.
