Fresh out of the box... confirmed that they are lighter than expected and almost as light as a new leather sole as someone else pointed out.

 

 

Used some Reno and a light coat of Kiwi neutral and they started to darken.

 

 

I expect these guys to darken a little more over time given the feel of the leather and how they changed just after one application.

Have been wearing them around the house and confirm they are TTS (8E Strand - 8E Cronmok) and a very comfortable wearing boot.

The footbed feels almost padded and the upper leather is like a broken in glove.

I missed out on the natural colored McTavish, so this will fill the gap at the light, top end nicely.

 

Has anyone else purchased the Cronmok in tan? if so, how are they looking?

 

I love the look of the finished product in the second image, nice dark and rich color. I would love to get these and have the ability to darken them.

 

I have the Banchory in tan and I believe they use the same leather. I've been pretty mean with these shoes (wearing them to bars and even taking them to the beach), while still taking care of them (reno, saddle soap), and they've begun to darken fairly well. The leather is extremely soft and comfortable!

Anyone have a pair of Allen-Edmonds Amok?  If so, how do you like them?

 

I noticed them on sale in selected sizes for only $99.99 at www.6pm.com

got a pair of snuff amoks. nice enough for what I paid (also $100 thru j'ville awhile back)

 

would not think twice about grabbing the tan amoks for $99 if they had my size. great price.

It reminds me of my grocery store where cottage cheese is 10 for $10.  When I take one to the checkout, it still rings up as a dollar.

I was told that I need to buy 2 pair to get the $125 price.

2 for $250 deal. Hesitated and lost. Dalton grey calf and Westchester brown calf were available yesterday in my size (10D is what I wear in the PA and was told at AE would be right for all AE shoes) but gone when I went to order them today. Words of advice, don't delay if they have what you like available.

Hesitated and lost out on a pair of walnut Brooks Brothers Strands for $129 back when I was starting to get into AE and had just learned about the shoebank (not quite a year ago).  It was my first list and I assumed that that kind of opportunity was routine.  Lesson learned.  Grabbed a pair of tan Elgins and walnut grain Park Aves this time around.  Totally agree with you - if you see something you like on one of these sales, grab it quick!

Memory is a bit foggy: someone recently reported that the Mora (2.0?) is coming back soon. Was that ever confirmed? J

I sure hope so, I would love to purchase them in black as seconds!

I already own the Neumoras in Brown, so the black would be a great addition.

I've never heard of anyone looking forward to an item being re-released so that he can purchase it as seconds. You must not want it THAT much.

Just pulled trigger for 2 for $250 deal today. It was easy - I had the list of shoes in my size. Just replied with 2 models I was after and few hours later received invoice. Jville store has all my details - purchased 8 shoes form them so far this year !
So I have Sanford in Walnut and Park Ave in grey cloud coming. A bit of gamble with PA grey. If I don't like the colour I will use Navy cream polish and if not happy will use Navy dye. I hear Navy dye is really strong and penetrate leather easily .

Any thoughts how easy/hard the colour change process may be . Any advise ? I plan not to strip the grey - rather navy over grey.

On a another note. I have few pairs of RL shoes that were squashing my toes. This morning ripped off the heavy leather insoles from them And what a magic....... got that extra width out of them.

They're alright, but I don't like them enough to pay that price.
