A few that won't pass the QC might eventually end up at the ShoeBank but the probability of you getting a pair in your size is pretty slim, though definitely non-zero. If memory serves, shell seconds retail for $499 (or $449?) so your savings compare to the first quality WebGems are pretty minimal. 

 
This actually reminded me that The Shoemart sells Alden shell cordovan seconds for $399, including cordovan boots. This might be a better deal that AE shell seconds

Assuming it will have passed the inspection...

Unfortunately they do not all pass QC the first round. That is why I am going on 4 months for my suede MacNeils. I hope my cordovan ones go much better.

Wow. 4 months for suede is a long wait

They are nice.  If they were my size, I'd consider grabbing that pair.

Does anyone have RL Saunders in suede? I haven't seen it in person but given it's on a 2 for $250 sale I thought I might want to check it out. Is it similar enough to Amok? Is there be any reason I'd want to have both?

post #29632 of 52456

Does anyone know as to when the next AE sale is? I missed out on a couple good options and now have only 1 pair that I'd like to buy. The 2 for $250 may not work for me after all. Thanks

I have it in suede. It's... okay. The suede isn't of the best quality. You get what you pay for.

It is a very long wait. I was actually surprised when I emailed and she mentioned is going through final inspection. I was expecting two months. I hope it passes. My order was similar to the pair of MTO cappuccino strands that were posted a few pages back. I am really looking forward to receiving mine.

Not similar to the Amok.

 
Another option is the Shnautal that can be found in Nordies Rack.  I think someone got some for $175 recently. That's a suede longwing, and has a double leather sole.

coolarrow - are you thinking of the RL Sanderson, which is a longwing? The RL Saunders is a chukka boot similar to the Amok. You can see it on the RL site here:

guessing he's referring to the amoks being unlined while the RL Saunders are lined

how does the last for Leeds / Dundee (511) fit in comparison to the McNeils (97)? ... How are people sizing?  thanks ...

I have some questions about the frequency of your guys shoe care. I have two pairs of shell that I normally wear twice a week - how often should I be brushing the shoes and how often should I be applying Reno to them? As of now, I probably brush every other week and Reno once a month, is that too much or too little? Also, both of these shoes have the double JR sole, any rough idea of how long before a resole at this rate of wear?
post #29640 of 52456
I would say brush more and Reno less. I brush my shells after every wear, every other at most and Reno once or twice a year. That being said my pairs are not worn as frequently as yours but I do think you could decrease the frequency with which you use Reno. I always give mine a quick brush prior to putting on as well
