AHHHHH I HAVE BEEN OUTED!

My girl just looked over my shoulder at my iPad and saw that I was on here. Her exact quote was "OH MY GOD you're on a shoe forum and you're religiously reading those posts aren't you?"

Then she said "...you'd don't actually post pics of your shoes on there do you? DO YOU?"

Ahhhh if she only knew!

It gets better. My wife doesn't even raise her eyebrows when she sees me snap a pic of my shoes.

Any thoughts?

I would agree. I just recently got some Walnut daltons as well, and while I love them (instantly became my favorite foot covering), they wouldn't work well with anything less than a casual (or perhaps country) suit. If you were going for less of a wow factor, but still wanted a classy, versatile boot, i'd recommend the brown. Dark and versatile.

I would like to add that Dalton leather seems a bit more softer than other AE leather shoes that I own. And toe box looks to be a bit soft as well. And my Dalton developed some crease on the toe area ); .It could be a sizing issue But the toe box is softer when I compare with other ae.

what you need to do is find a girl that is in love with shoes as much as you are.  My wife and I take turns goggling over our future shoe purchases online.

Fifth street boot was one of my recent purchases from about a month ago (4 other AEs since). Purchased the dark brown, wore them once and I'm in love. I've always had an infatuation with balmoral boots, and am considering purchasing the black and merlot version of them as well.

As far as the wifey concerned about our passion, mine seems pretty chill about it these days. Although I do sell on eBay, so I'm always snappin pics of things daily. Packages entering and leaving the house is a normal occurrence. eBay sales funds my shoe drug addiction, and she don't really care lol.
I can only recommend you try and involve her in why you enjoy what it is we all share here, maybe she will take an interest.

My Saunders also have the 2-piece combination heel like the cordovan AE's. they fit a little bit more snug than than my 5-last shoes. I like them a lot.

So for sizing do you stay with the same size as your 5 last shoes? As in it is not so snug that you need to make a change in size?

I'm looking to get a pair in tan and suede.

Sorry for the slow response. I wear the same size in both,12E. Now the snugness is far less noticeable then when they were new. Even if the RL's feel a little tight on first putting them on for the day, after 15 minutes it's completely unnoticeable, maybe due to the leather warming and softening. If I didn't have a couple of MTO shell Amoks on order, I'd get more of these as even a hair snug still fits my foot better than the Dundees I tried.

Does anyone out there have any experience with this shoe?

 

What do you guys think?  thumbs up or thumbs down?

I have the brown fifth streets, and have had them for about a year. They are a great looking boot. I have had no squeaking issues. There were some breaking in squeaks, but after the leather was broke in that stopped. The brown looks excellent with variations of grey, and of course blue. The only knock I have on these is that I wish they were a it taller like the Dalton. But they are a great boot for dress or casual.

I wear my Walnut Dalton for dress with a suit often. Grey and blue are great. Also, grey flannel slack look amazing with the walnut Dalton. I would not hesitate. Pull the trigger.

Has anyone picked up a pair of the suede Strands? I love my brown ones and have been looking for a pair of casual suede shoes, but I noticed the suede Strands have a different model number (1614). Do they not fit the same as the regular Strands, which are on the 5 last?
