post #27616 of 46432

Wondering if people think these are authentic or what the deal is, I have never seen the markings in the locations they are on these shoes.

These are real, just old, deadstock shoes. AE moved away from that insole typeface a few years ago.

Ordered the MacNeil in burgundy shell from the shoebank for $380. Does that seem reasonable for new shell seconds?

Sounds great to me

welp, strand seconds are going back :/ a bit too wrinkly for my liking and a slight cut in the leather. came straight from the factory so I wasn't able to get j'ville to look over them.

 

shame, as they were a good deal.

I hope my 12Ds look OK. Mine are coming from Wisconsin too. If my S.O. intercepts them Tuesday, this might be my last post smile.gif

It would be nice if AE used some more inconspicuous packaging. However, a shoe box still looks like a shoe box even if the AE logo isn't on it.

Can someone ID these for me, please?

yeah these were 12d's also. they'd be honestly okay for most, but coming from mainly aldens of first quality, I'm just being petty with these. I'll take the $199 and put it towards some bayfield MTOs if I can get the makeup I'm after.

 

good luck with yours!

Brilliant, thanks!

There was recently a question about what Bourbon shoes looked like.  Bourbon shoes start their lives as Walnut shoes, and are then polished on a black polishing wheel, so each shoe looks different.  Then, everyone who has a pair of Bourbon shoes takes care of their shoes differently.  If a dozen Bourbon shoe owners were to gather in an Allen Edmonds store, everyone's Bourbon shoes would look different, and no one's Bourbon shoes would look like the Bourbon shoes on display in the store.

Here are my Bourbon Park Avenues, out in the afternoon sun.  I have removed the laces so the tongues, which are still Walnut, show.

Speaking of, I got mine today (Saturday!). Thx FedEx nod[1].gif . I got them in black calf. They are marked as seconds with the marker on the bottom. The only "defect' is a slight raised part of the leather on the waist. After I put them through the paces, it won't be noticeable.

These will be my dress down Friday shoes that I will wear with jeans or khakis. And, with a NYC big city vibe. I'll show a preference to wearing these on those day where there is a threat of rain. I'm always nervous when I wear shell during potential rain days. I have beater shoes for 100% rain days.

I think these are a lot sleeker than Alden's LWBs on the Barrie last. I wish I could speak to the leather and whether it is comparable to the Independence line. I haven't handled the Independence line, though. The leather feels like the leather of the other AE shoes I have bought at the ~$300 pricepoint (msrp).
