post #27391 of 46461

Hi,

Any idea if the Park Avenues will be again on sale on Amazon again? I friend told me that they were selling for 220 and you could get an extra 20% just a few weeks back! So sorry I missed itfacepalm.gif

I think it would look fantastic I have two pairs of MTO cappuccino on order

I agree. Although I did go with a little darker welt/sole edge.

 

Me too!

The logic that varnished shoe trees would be counter productive makes perfect sense to me as well, and I have subscribed to that belief, albeit without any hard evidence.  

 

However, in a couple of posts in the thread I posted previously (see posts 31 and 32) the question is posed about why plastic trees wouldn't be just as acceptable to use if varnished trees are indeed considered ok.  Nobody really had a clear answer, but John Cusey (SF name jcusey) responded with his belief that there shouldn't be any difference.   Manton pointed out that all of his bespoke shoes come with varnished trees.  

 

Who knows for sure.  I'm certainly not a xylologist.  

 

I am happy with the results I get from cedar trees, and I'm happy to stick with the price point of cedar.  Cedar certainly isn't hurting anything.

Some forumites may not like the chelsea boot style, but they really appeal to me. Any comments on these?




Damn. I just bought a pair of Grenson Chelseas, but these just put mine to shame.

If I lived in Madrid, I would go down the street to the Meermin store to get their black captoe on the Hiro last in the classic collection before I would deal with the aggravation of shipping and sizing issues of ordering the Park Avenue from AE.

It's funny.  I love the Bayfield in shell, but prefer the long branch in waxy calf to the Bayfield in CXL.  I think it has to do with my perception of a cap toe boot as being more formal.

Looks like LeviMay has those CXL's shined up pretty good and could easily pass as formal. Or...you could wear them in the woods like Cold Iron. Seems like quite a versatile boot to me.

can you get MTO's in old styles that are no longer in production?

I believe so, yes.
