Rather new here myself, are they regularly $8 from JAB? I have the AE trees with my pair of park aves. Thanks

i've seen three for $25 (with free shipping and no tax) offered twice in the last three months.

Only when they have their 60%-70% or buy one, get two free sales. . .which is pretty much every other week!

Is anyone familiar with the Hampton?

It is a discontinued Wingtip with combination of calf and grain leather. I want to make sure that it is not too casual looking to be wearing with a suit.

Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

- width: tight and starts hurting the pinky side of my feet longer I wear, I started feeling sore & pain.

I'm thinking of ordering *Parkway* size 8D, but based on the allenedmonds.com,
parkway runs wider than normal AE shoes where Lasalle runs either *true size* or *narrow*
Would you say I would feel comfortable in 8D ? or should I order 8E?

It is unfortunate that any local store in Toronto do not carry different width length. They only carry normal D.

Can any of you give me some feedback ?

Thanks,

Harry Rosen? Robert Jones menswear? the Bay? None of them carry different widths?

I like the Hampton; because of the grain behind the wingtip, it looks a little more casual, but I would rock it with a suit in a heartbeat - although not my finest suit. Was gonna get it in brown, but wanted to get away from closed lacing/balmorals for a second to expand my options. At $159, which was what the ones I wanted cost at the time, it seems like a steal - especially if you are building a lineup. Do it! It's different, but dressy enough to fit in a lineup of dress shoes, IMO.

I have the hampton in black and enjoy wearing them. Agree with above, a bit casual, but could work with a suit. They are solid and well made, and a good deal at closeout prices. I prefer other models over this, but at the price point it's hard to beat. Enjoy!

Thanks! I decided to order it in Brown. It was a way to fulfill my need for a brown shoe at a great price!

Can the grain leather portion of the shoe be polished and shined like the calf? Not sure how to care for a grained leather.

As always, all input is greatly appreciated!

Yessir.. I can do, again. I posted these earlier today!

I understand it is discontinued - at least that's what the salesman said a few weeks ago when I wore mine into the store... "You must've gotten one of the last ones!"

So, I've worn my walnut strands 3 times now, and tonight when wiping them down after wearing, a piece seemed to chip off of the center. It's not a scuff, or nick. Seems like a dry bit of leather or something. Is this something that I should be worried about, or just deal with? They were seconds, but obviously this wasn't there when I received them. I haven't conditioned or polished at all since getting them.

Nope, none. I called and visited two locations of Harry rosen and told me no different width.

 

Robert Jones, the guy just told me he has no size 8 on any kinds. Bay didn't have anything either given that they were on clearance.

 

I guess nobody on this forum owns both of  lasalle and parkway :( well the lasalle sales is ending tonite

I own the Lasalle, I posted a few pages back. Size 8D. They fit like a glove but I guess I have just normal width feet.

Your best bet I think would maybe get someone at nordstorm to order it for you. Shipping is free.

Where are you from in Toronto?
post #36540 of 53425

I have settled on my (first?) three pair of shoes after reading all the help on the forum, this thread in particular.  I ended up with:

 

AE Dark Brown Clifton

AE Chili LaSalle

Walnut Santoni Prichard

 

I have read a few threads about shoe care, but was hoping to get some advice on my particular shoes.  I was on the AE site making my order and reading the reviews and got concerned.  There were several reviews about the Conditioner/Cleaner darkening the color of some shoes.  The Clifton's are dark already, so seems safe to use.  The LaSalle is the chili color that I really like, has anyone used the cleaner on the Chili colored leather?  I am not sure I would try it on the walnut Santoni.

 

If I understand correctly, shoe cream (glass jar) to condition and carnauba polish (tin) for shine.  What about the squeeze bottle with applicator pad "premium polish"?  I want my shoes to look professional, but not plastic.  I have regularly put kiwi polish from a tin on my black shoes, but these were not "nice" shoes.

 

I see recommendations to use the shoe cream followed by the carnauba polish.  After doing that and the shoes need refreshing, do I use the cream again followed by polish?  I would have thought the polish would have kept the shoe cream from soaking in.

 

There is no recommended shoe cream for the Chili LaSalle on the AE site.  Premium polish only?  Carnauba polish only?

 

Sorry for the newbie questions, but the couple threads I could find here were confusing on these points.
