post #33751 of 46570

My Walnut Calf Daltons from Amazon have arrived. Didn't know they'd be this sweet.

I also have a pair of Long branches that I coated with 2 very thick applications of Obenaufs LP, and since then, i've thrown everything at them. Pouring rain, the same ankle deep snow as my Shell Daltons, and I even wore them out to the club the other night (it was a casual place) and I have to say that they just keep getting better with every wear. If you're mostly going to be in rain or lighter snow, I would recommend them for sure. I can see if I can get a decent photo up on mine later this week. I've worn them at least once a week, if not more, since September.

Thanks for the reply. I live in the northeast, so I'm looking for a boot to wear to work (business-casual) when it snows/rains. Do you think the Long Branches are too aggressive/casual? I don't know how they'd look with slacks and a dress-shirt.

I'm also in the Northeast.  Last Monday when we had some snow in the morning I wore my Long Branch boots with slacks and a dress shirt and got some compliments on my boots.  I've also worn them casually with jeans and khakis...

I wear mine usually with jeans, pretty casually. They could double ask business-casual boots, depending on where your work falls in that whole spectrum. If I were you, i'd change the red laces out for some flat waxed (or another kind) brown laces, and that would make them look a bit dressier. You could pull it off them for sure. The 1-last isn't really "sleek," but its infinitely better than the square boxes my co-workers consider footwear.

Thought you guys might like to see a pair of AE's I bought in 1982..

Yes, those kicks are 31 years old, my first pair.

In response to the poster who wants to wear Daltons in the snow, I would also love to do the same, but what stops me is the fact that they have leather soles.  First of all, you will destroy the sole very quickly.  Second, once you get inside, you will slip and slide all over the place.  I always go with a rubber sole in the rain and snow here in NJ.  Thankfully, we don;t get a ton of snow.

I had a local cobbler put a topy on the boots, one with a fairly aggressive tread, so slipping is not an issue at all. Im mostly concerned about the uppers, but after seeing how they bounced back today, I think that they will be able to take to such conditions well.

Can someone explain how the 1 last fits compared to the 5 last.  I am considering purchasing a pair of Long branch boots but am unable to try anything on.  I am a 9E in my fifth avenues which fit very well.  What size would you suggest in the Long Branch boot?

Love the way your Daltons are looking! I especially like the way they're creasing on the quarters.  I need to wear mine more often to get them to where yours are.  How old are they?

Thank you Sir. About 18 months old. Worn every week at least.

You should probably try 9.5D first. This said, however, I would also consider 9.5E if you intend to wear them with a thicker sock.

Sweet. Are these cordovan?

Contact Kristle at the jeffersonville outlet if you are still interested. Took about a month.

Thoughts on the Brentwood oxfords?  There is a pair on eBay I have my eye on.  I know that AE does not manufacture them anymore, but they seem like a handsome, if relatively basic/boring, look.
