Allen Edmonds Appreciation Thread - Page 1880

On this Labor Day (Labour for our Canadian buddies) it sure is nice to pause and be thankful for all the awesome workers who make these Allen Edmonds shoes.

I know I'm proud to slip my foot into something made in America every morning.

Agreed. I am very glad there is an American-made shoe option still out there.

I hope the AE folks are reading this and will pass on our appreciation for all they do right here in the USA.

And I also want to send out my appreciation for all the workers in the USA that make this country great. Thank goodness we have a lot of great American-made things to go along with our shoes!

Very nice store...just don't go on hot day. Their A/C hasn't worked all summer they told me. Hot as heck in there. Wow. Dunno how the workers can put up with that.

 

Is that the store that's across the street from the Brooks Brothers flagship store and just around the corner from the Alden Madison store? I went there in july and the staff was really nice and helpful. I don't remember the SA's name, but she was young and had brown hair, she was very helpful. I went to the other Madison store and I didn't feel welcome at all. The SA's very not really interested in helping me and one of them actually answered a phone call while I was speaking with him, I found it quite rude and just went back to the other store.

 

Edit:

I place an order for the Brown Bayfields and shell Daltons yesterday with shoe trees it totalled at $655, not too bad!

Now to wait for a brown suede!

 

Does anyone know if this is happening, or would the best bet be to try a custom order?

I'll bite. How did you get that price?

Must have been seconds. The sale is still running through today.
post #28194 of 48283

Bayfields are firsts, but it's a closeout style so if you can get them via an AE outlet they will be $167, the shell Daltons are seconds, but they are not a part of the Labor day sale but the Riverhead outlet had a 20% off coupon running through yesterday.

How's the bulge in these Mcallisters? I was fitted by a guy at Allen Edmonds in Orange County and he said that bulge is def. from being flat footed, which I am very flat footed! He let me try some super feet which improved my arch and almost took away the bulge but I don't care for the way they feel in the heel. In regards to the picture, my right foot isn't as bad as the left, but still there.

Of course with pants on you can't tell unless you're looking.

Also he said bluchers are better for flat feet.

I have pretty flat feet and I have a slight gap on both of my Park Ave & Strand shoes. It really doesn't bother me personally since the shoe fits well everywhere else.
post #28197 of 48283

My feet are pretty flat as well. I have gaps in my shoes and I'm thinking about trying a heel pad or a half insole. 

 

I also switched to straight european lacing which made the gap somewhat smaller. Straight lacing did not work for me at all.

I'm also flat footed and have the same or maybe worse gap than that. I don't think their 5 last plays very nice with flat feet. I'm still looking for a brand/last that will fit my feet well.

My friend, great looking tassels.  Do you know how they compare in fit to the Alden version?  Same sizing? Slightly roomier toe box??

Anyone have any experiences with the new Mojave chukka? Thinking about a pair in tan or olive suede. The tan looks a little like a light rust in the photo's, but i'm guessing they're closer to standard tan.

Here's the website shots.
