I spend no more than $50-$100 on what I want for myself that isn't necessary each month.  I have one pair of AE shoes and I am saving up every dime of spending money until I have enough to buy my next pair.  I have 1 wife, 1 son, 1 job, and zero college degrees at the moment (working on that currently).  I am 24 years old.

Even if I had the money, I doubt I could justify to myself paying $200+ for a wallet.  Having nice shoes is something I consider a luxury, and a worthwhile allocation of my resources therefor I can justify spending money on shoes so long as I'm not spending money on other frivolous things (video games, dvds...). I would honestly feel guilty if I spent $200+ on something that is completely 100% not a necessity in any way.  Isn't there something better that could be done with that $200?  There is absolutely no justifiable reason for me to spend $200+ on a glorified debit card holder.

I don't mean to be rude... and I'm not making judgements on other people, this is just my thinking.  If the only reason I can think of for purchasing something is "why not? I have the money!" then it's a purchase that shouldn't be made.

No judgments. I understand and I hope I didn't come off rude in any way either. It's definitely all luxury items in the end and what one values monetarily is in itself, personal.

You probably just used too much water. Let them sit overnight and see how they look in the morning.

I got the neumora a few months ago but really regret that I did not wait for the Mora 2..

I think I'm in for one more big splurge during this RDA sale.

I'm already in for the webgem brown cordovan Jeffersons and Patriots. I do have burgundy calf Patriots, but I feel tempted to pick up their burgundy shell counterparts as well. However, I'm starting feel like maybe I need some shell Dalton's instead. How do you guys size these boots?

My Patriots are 10 EEE. I'm wearing Park Aves today in 11D, they are wide enough but a bit too long for optimal fit. My McAllisters are also 11D but they are narrower than my Park Ave's. I ordered the Jeffersons in 10.5E so I hope that works. Any advice on Dalton's?

Why yes, walnut Dalton go great with black pants.
post #31176 of 46882
I purchased these back in July...but today is the first day on the job. Going to try on some Dalton's at lunch today since I've been itching for a pair of boots for the fall and winter.

Does anyone know if the Townleys are available for MTO? If so, how is the fit compared to the 5 lasted shoes and Delrays? Thanks

Maybe it's just me, but I'm not sure I'd use the dalton as a heavy duty winter boot. I'll wear mine through the winter, but probably only on non-sloppy days. I'm trying to see if I can pick up a pair of long branches or frye boots that have lugged soles for the truly gross days up here in boston.

On that note, do people prefer leather protectant or mink oil to treat boots for the slop?

Where did you get the code?

post #31181 of 46882

Yeah, I'd love that code!

Also, does anyone have the shaker height boot? Those look like they could actually be fun in black.. that is if they decide to make it in black!

Dare to be a little bold haha. I wear tan shoes with black pants sometimes as well.

 

You know... the old black and tan!

I agree, definitely not for heavy duty winter use. If I have to walk the 30 steps from my parking lot to the office then I just wear my "snow boots" then change out. I work out in the mornings anyway, so I hardly ever wear my shoes to the office. If the winter gets really bad here in VA I just store my shoes at the office.
