Now, if the process for producing bourbon shell resembled the process for calf to any extent, bourbon wouldn't be any easier to obtain than walnut. That's because bourbon is burnished walnut.

 

So, while it would be nice to get some lighter shell, I wouldn't hold my breath.

AE is out of Walnut shell as of now and they don't plan to restock it in the future. You are right that they have done runs of walnut shells, but they ran out of it in August, or so they say.

I think they are new styles created for black fri. I have seen the MacAdam in person, and the leather quality is a notch below standard AE

Any of you guys contact Allison regarding a minor MTO?

 

Things like a different colored edge trim or even just adding a tap sole(save $50) to the basic makeup.

 

I know this can be considered as "pushing it" but just wanted to see your thoughts.

Agreed.

I'm a 'true' 13.5C on a Brannock device; so I guess it makes sense that my Strands (13C) in a long and slim last fit me perfectly. I have a pair of 13C Sanfords (7 last) that are too short and wide (though only 'short' in that the toe box gets too tight too quickly; not like my toes are up against the front. I have 13D 5As that are big but fit alright with insoles.

 

Hence why I think 14B might be my proper size in the 1 or 7.

 

What complicates things even more is that my left foot is noticeably larger than my right foot (and I'm right handed, which is weird) - I think almost a full width's worth. You can tell just by looking at the lacing, especially the respective V-shapes on balmorals. :D

Has anyone heard anything about a Dalton seconds sale?

I had a pair of bone-stock burgundy shell MacNeils done MTO to get 'em narrow enough. Folks do that regularly just to get the Independence lining and sole. No worries.

Oh man, tricky. I think at this point I'd suggest the above route and going MTO just to get each foot sized properly. Otherwise yeah, a 14B sounds as close as you'll get.

I unfortunately lack the disposable income to do MTO at this point. The whole 2/$250 thing was really the only way I could afford these shoes to begin with. Even though my left foot is bigger than my right, my 13C Strands are very comfortable on both feet, though my left instep hurts a bit at the end of a long day.

 

Does anyone know if the 2 last is more similar to the 1/7 or 5? I have an AE outlet near me and I can go and try on Daltons if I want to go that route, but I'm thinking about the Eagle County and I doubt they'd have those in stock in my size.

Oddly enough, my left foot is also noticeably bigger than my right, and I am also right handed. You could certainly try a 14B, but I would actually suggest you try a 13B/C in the 1 last. I say this because you can't move half a size and some people take the same size in the 5 last as they do other lasts, but go up a width. The 5 last is approx. 1/4 longer than typical (i.e. a size 11 is size 11 1/4). Since you say the toe box gets too tight too quickly, you may benefit from a last that is more rounded like the 1 last. For the 7 last, since a 13C doesn't work, you pretty much have to try a 14B or get a MTO.

The 2 last is somewhat similar to the 5, in that it's long and narrow. You may be able to wear that in the same size as your 5 lasted shoes, but it is a bit narrower so you may need to go up a width.

Toronto PSA: Rego, in the Exchange Tower, has AEs on sale for $299. Not sure which models, I'm hoping to drop in some time today to take a look.

Trying to get the Jeffersonville store to give me some details. So far all I know is that there's a Tanger coupon for 20% off that they will honor as well as door busters on clearance models.

 

I asked for more, lets see what happens

post #33897 of 48252

 

Here is the flyer I received for seconds thanksgivings sale. 

post #33898 of 48252
Just got a list of currently discontinued shoes from Jeffersonville. Basically the same models that were in the 2 for $250 sale a while back. Nothing I'm excited about. I might talk myself into a a $99 Neumora. She did say that the entire list will not be in effect until that day. They will set the list the day of or before the sale, so it could change.
post #33899 of 48252

man no boots on sale, closest thing I found is all Eagle Countys are $129 and grey long branch is $159, brown long branch is $199.

 

 

Im really regretting not snagging cordovan daltons for 299 a couple months ago since I am now considering paying north of 200 for calf ones. What do you guys think the chances of them doing a sale like that again are?

post #33900 of 48252

any of you have a pair of the Cambridge in Brogue Suede? Care to share some pics?
