Just for fun, can you get 3 for $375? Or do they need to be purchased in even quantities?

I had this question as well.

HAMPTONS BLACK CALF/BLACK GRAIN LEATHER WINGTIPS: On the AE site these are in their clearance section and in the checkout the are totalling $147.75 after (apparently) additional discounts. Is that an unusually good deal or do deals like that happen regularly on AE's?

I think that's a pretty good deal. I paid much closer to retail, and still am happy with mine.

From personal experience, you can buy 1 for $125, 2 for $250, or 3 for $375, etc.

A LW with a split reverse needs a double sole or else the proportion will be off.  If you really want a single sole, then I would suggest doing a flat welt.  I can see a LWB split reverse with single sole working with suede.  But why would you be afraid of the bulk?  IMHO, the "bulk" is part of what gives a LWB it's character.  That's why we call them gunboats, right?  If I want a streamlined shoe, then I'll get a balmoral.

How often do shell cordovan seconds go on sale?

I ordered a pair of daltons in a 11.5D and my first impression is that they are half a size too big. (I'm a 11.5B in the calf patriot/strand for reference.)

I also have a 11.B shell cordovan patriot coming in the mail, I hope its not big. frown.gif

How much should I be able to press down on the middle of the laces? Here is a picture for reference.

I have a burgundy shell Bradley on the way - seconds at $299.  After seeing the pics of some "on the hoof" a couple of pages back, I'm pretty excited.  In the mean time, another "Shoe Bank" bargain.  Anyone else have a Strawfut? They're super light and comfortable, but feel very slack around the arch compared to the Broadstreet.  Are they the same last?  I guess it's just the looser structure of the mesh.

Anyone have actual pictures of the BB Longwings (MacNeil) in Brown/Chili? Also, would you know if it has a double sole? There's not much info from BB's website. Thanks!

I can't answer your questions, but let me know if you consider letting them go.

The broadstreet is on the 3 last whereas the Strawfuts are on the 5 (most Balmorals are on the 5 last).

This is the best shell seconds deal this year, and the best since they ran an identical sale roughly 12 months ago, as they were going to the "MTO" approach to shell cordovan shoes.  Prior to that they attempted to keep an inventory of shell in their retail locations and therefore there were lots of seconds floating around.  Separately, I think 2x per year the outlet mall locations run a 20% off sale, which brings the price down to the mid- $300's.  

 

Only you can assess your fit,  but I would say that if you are a B width in your 5-last shoes, a D width in your boot will probably be too wide.

Can I glue a heel tap back on myself or should I take it to a cobbler?

post #29355 of 43078
Has anyone considered the Niles for MTO? Basically a captoe Oxford with heel detail, but on the 8 last. I would be interested to see how it looks opposed to the Park Ave., or of they can still make it...
