I think that the website incorrectly lists the color as "dark brown," because the website pictures definitely have an orangish hue to them. Looking forward to receiving them.

They definitely are walnut.

I got mine ~8 months ago from there.

I have the Jeffersons with generic double (factory) soles and JR's on two other AE's and a vintage pair of Florsheims that Nick V installed about 8 months ago. They all seem uniformly excellent.

Is the blue darker?  (I know they are $76 cheaper)

darker blue, different soles, different stitching color , same great shoe!

 

I wouldn't pass these up if you were looking for a pair of casual wingtips, great deal.

I just got the reciept and it says it's shipping UPS ground, I am positve I am going to get hit with a fee now. 

 

I ordered from the Shoebank earlier this year and the shoes were delivered via FexEx. Other than a $30 shipping fee (I believe that's how much it was) there were absolutely no other fees...no taxes, no duty, nothing. I think I just lucked out.

 

I've been burned by fees when receiving UPS packages, though. Not sure what accounts for this difference.

I have the blue Neumoks, and love them! Fit like a glove, feel like slippers, lightweight and look great with blue or beige chinos, jeans, or you name it. GET THEM!

This pair of navy blue suede MacNeils that has been on eBay since at least August, is apparently cursed. I think it was bought at least three times in the past couple of months, but apparently each new owner just keeps sending it back. They are really great shoes so I am not sure what's the reason.

Sorry, I have never tried McAllisters, so can't compare. I'm an 11.5D in many AE's and when I tried my Neumoks on at a nordstrom, it was like trying on slippers - in 11.5D.

They do not have my size. :( I checked a few months back when someone posted here about these. I emailed them to see if they have 12ds...

Have any of you had a problem with creasing in Allen Edmonds shoes?  I recently bought a new pair of Clifton oxfords on eBay, and, after two wears, they have pretty distinct creases just to the toe side of the top cap seam.  I realize that eventually all shoes get creased, but I had creases develop in the exact same location on a very cheap pair of Bostonians I bought years ago, when I was just out of school, and I was hoping that AEs would wear harder than that.  I'm sure I'll still get years of use out of them, but I've had some dress shoes for years before they developed those sort of creases.

These creases are likely due to how shoes fit your feet and your gait. The fact that the creases are all very similar suggests that they all fit you similarly and that your gait is consistent. It is not hugely surprising. I often develop creases in my shoes in very similar locations.

I would love a pair (a little upset I didn't jump when they were more widely available). How was the pricing?

Good Morning Everyone!

 

I finally got my first two pairs of shoes that I had on order. Today, I get to finally post my Snuff Suede Amoks and my Cappuccino Shell Cordovan Jeffersons (MTO). Without further ado...

 

Snuff Suede Amoks:

 

 

 

They look super comfortable, but the snuff was a little darker than I was expecting.

 

Cappuccino Shell Cordovan Jeffersons (MTO):

 

 

 

 

These are absolutely superb! I could not be any happier with them. I did not see the burnishing look in real life as much as my camera did, but its still dark and morning in my room here.

 

Still awaiting (any day now):

  • Black Shell Cordovan Harrison (MTO) - Not sure where this one is at, I ordered it at the same time as my Jefferson...
  • Alden Ravello LHS
  • Alden Whiskey PTB
  • C&J for RL Gianni Boot

 

Hope that you all have a great Friday and November 1st!

 

-Mike
