Re: my Bayfield post above. LE is sending out a replacement pair as I type and I'll return this pair. They say they'll have someone look at the replacement pair before sending. At least the customer service seems good.

I was just browsing on ebay for some shoes... came across these gems- the Marlows. I never knew that AE made an austerity brogue! It is the style i am coveting most right now. If they ever brought it back, I would definitely jump on it!

Could someone kindly share how to get on the email list for the shoebank sales? thank you.


I hadn't heard of this Seconds sale before but have found it impossible to work. I got the list several times and each time called for style soon after (in an hour) obtaining the list and they had nothing. I am not sure how their inventory management works - greats Customer Service though.

Got a nice surprise when these showed up today! I know they're very casual and I haven't seen anyone else that ordered them, but I really like these. They'll make for a great casual shoe.

There's no list that would be periodically sent to you, like the list of Aldens on "Theshoemart.com." You have to call or email shoebank@allenedmonds.com or any other outlet, such as Jeffersonville, Ohio or Freeport, Maine. 

 

ah, i see, thank you for the info!

Apparently they ran out of stock very fast for the Amok during the flash sale. Ordered before they went out but still missed the boat so I have to wait 2 months before they can build new ones.

Nice! I love the Clifton's. I have a pair of Walnut ones and they are probably my most worn/favorite shoe.

Interested in getting a pair of Broadstreet.

What do they go for in seconds? Best time to buy them?

Any thoughts and reviews on the Jefferson in brown shell cordovan? Looks to be a webgem deal that will run out end of Sept. Shoe looks gorgeous, any way these would show up at the shoebank priced accordingly?

I gotta be honest, it doesn't look so bad on the 3-last. But I'm not digging that the eyelets are limited to three. 4-5 eyelets would have been a better call, imo.
Also, it would seem that the shoes are too narrow for your foot. The laces shouldn't come apart that widely.

I agree that a 4 eyelet would work better, and as long as the shoe creases properly, I'll be fine. I have the Neumora, and get some double creasing due to the elongated 333 last.

 The spread is just under an inch at the top of the "V", which I've found to be acceptable. If the shoe were too narrow, the topline of the shoe would gap around the throat from the pressure pushing the throat outwards. Basically, the spread isn't the only indicator. Also, as I'm sure you know, the upper is going to stretch quite a bit, allowing the eyestays to move closer together. When I first bought my Jeffersons, the spread was about 3/4". It has now stretched to the point that the spread only measures about 1/4".

UPDATE: Interestingly enough, where most balmorals are lasted with the eyestay touching (if you've ever seen a pair being made, they use a plastic tie to keep the eyestays together while lasting), it seems that the Hanover is lasted with a natural "V".

If you lace them the European method, the gap will be smaller.

Brown Burnished...



Or maybe in bourbon...



I know the Kenilworth runs slightly larger than other 5 lasted shoes. I haven't heard of any bowing issues, myself. I would think that, being a blucher, there would be less bowing. After all, most of the time bowing is caused by the speading at the throat of a balmoral, because the bottom portion of the eyestays is fixed, and cannot adjust to accomodate the volume at the top, or it is caused by the lack of an arch/instep, causing downward pressure on the upper at the inside of the foot.

Bottom line: I wouldn't expect any excessive bowing from the Kenilworth.

I have a pair, like its simplicity and elegance, and recommend it.

Got an MTO that is in the final inspection stages. How long between this step and receiving the shoes?
