With the sale going on I can get the Daltons in chocolate for $199 or in shell for roughly double that. Is it worth it?

Did anyone get the Daltons in the same size as their other 5 last shoes ?

I have lots of shoes on the 5 last in 12D. I have 3 pairs of Daltons, all size 12D. I have no wrinkling on the wing, just in the right spot. In the summer I wear normal dress socks, and must admit they are a bit loose, but in the fall and winter I wear thicker socks, and they fit perfectly. By the way, I am very happy with the Dalton, I have a pair of black Daltons on order. Can't wait. I would pull that trigger, you won't be disappointed.

Seeing the Dalton on the list of seconds in a color other than walnut is odd. I would be all over those chocolates for $199. I got the list yesterday and they only have walnut in my size. Also, I picked up a pair of burgundy shell Daltons a couple months back for I think around $360. Not bad for a retail $699 boot. I would say anything under $400 for a second in a shell Dalton boot is a great price. If you can swing it, I would get on both of those.

"Thank you for your email earlier today. The Portland boot will be available in the US. There are some adjustments made to to the last and then later this fall season it will be available for order.
A specific date is currently not available. Thank you for your patience as well as your interest in Allen Edmonds footwear."

Thank you for doing this Pastor!

I thought it was a one time thing, used for when you first get the shoes.

I agree with this. Most of my shoes and boots have never seen Renomat. And when I do I don't let it sit for the full 15 minutes that the bottle say, maybe 5 at the most then follow it up right away with Renovateur.

The before:

 

The after:

 

Your cedar boot rack turned out very well with good spacing and room for air flow. Nice job!

I have some renomat on the way from http://ashineandco.com and I can't tell you how awesome they've been. Cheapest Saphir prices and shipping half the amount of the other guys...

That renomat will remove the extra polish AE seems to throw on these!

 

Are these calfskin?  If so, why are you going to use Renomat on brand new calfskin shoes?  Just use a little renovateur to moisturize them and you will be good to go.

I do not think anyone has purchased the new suede strands yet.  However, I have no reason to believe they will fit differently than the normal strand.

Any other opinions on how the Saunders boot fits vs the slaton or sanderson?

I actually ordered a pair of the Tan Saunders boots last good sale and found them to fit a good bit larger than my 5 last shoes. As a point of reference, I am a 9.5D measured by an AE SA, but I find that the 8 last actually fits me the best. Back when I ordered the Saunders, I also ordered a pair of Slatons, which I found to be a bit more snug than say a 5 or 8 last shoe of the same size (which is actually great for me). I am waiting on a pair of Sandersons that are arriving today, but if they fit like the Slatons and are in good shape, I will be quite pleased. Hopefully that helps.

I was going to try to remove a little of that excess polish they put on the sides of my Strands.

 

...if you don't think I should I'll just go with the Renovateur and leave the Renomat for my shells.

 

Again, I can't say how great http://ashineandco.com was to work with. They're just starting out with offering the mail order of Saphir items.

 

They also offer up a mean shine if you're in NYC or San Francisco. Unfortunately I'm in the heart of the Aldo/Steve Madden/Kenneth Cole square toe epidemic.

Thanks. Yes, the toe box is very soft on the Dalton, not sure why. Crease goes right over the wing on both shoes, but more so on the left. Not sure what can be done. I do think I will use them as more of a casual boot so I don't mind the creases too much

Thanks for the response I was looking for! For what it's worth, my Sandersons fit the same as my Slatons (one width tigher and shorter than a 5 last shoe of the same size). The Illfords in the same size were way too big, so maybe AE uses the same boot last for the Illfords and Saunders.

The Portland boot is back up on the AE website but if i'm not mistaken the price has been increased. It's now $395

Black shell Dundees. Anyone else experience this almost brownish/reddish tint with black shell under direct sunlight?
