Nice! Next to my Longbranches, my grey Aberdeens get the most wear (and tons of compliments).

 

Does anyone know if the Aberdeen and Eagle County are on the same last? 

Aberdeen are 2-Last.

Finally had a need for them and decided to pull them out for a good polish before taking them out. I was surprised to find that the sole has started coming apart. Its more prominent in one shoe than the other but its definitely splitting. Its the only pair of rubber soled AEs that I own but I was disappointed to see them falling apart, especially with such little use.

My Allen Edmonds shoes haven't done this, but I've had it happen with another pair of decent rubber-soled footwear after I stubbed the toe hard on a sidewalk.

I used a toothpick to slip the faintest layer of this stuff in between, clamped it together to let it dry properly, and let it set for 24 hours. Works like a charm.

Allison just called me and said that my promontory point MTO was actually completed, just without the lining and is sending over pictures for me to take a look. If I like them, I'll just keep those and skip on the Eagle Country. 

 

FWIW, I thought navy calf with an unline grey suede shaft would have been pretty awesome..we shall see what the boot looks like.

The Long Branches are continuing to get a lot of wear!

Mine too. I've worn them almost every day since New Years with all the salt and slush in NYC. They clean up like magic, too.

2002 CHILI CALF

BRASS EYELETS

BLACK FLAT WELT

TOASTED EDGE DRESSING

INDEPENDENCE LINING LEATHER

DAINITE OUTSOLE

LEATHER MIDSOLE

 

Needed a versatile boot that I could wear with literally anything from jeans to a suit. I think I hit the nail on the head with these.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Color looks deeper and more brown in person, as is common with chili. Do you guys think the creasing is fine? I'm talking specifically about the second picture.

 

Also, how is the welting done on these dainite soles? Might the lack of visible stitching make these more durable?

 

 

For those of you who have been wondering about sizing on the 2-last, I'm normally a 13C on the 5-65, and these fit me very nicely in 13D. 

would you people STOP with these eagle county MTO photos... making me so jealous I want to pull the little hair I have left right out of my head. Every one of these MTOs just gets better and better.

I'm wearing mine today as well. They hold up so well in this lovely NE winter.

Chris

those look fantastic.

Agreed, I treated mine with Obenauf's and have been walking through puddles and snowbanks all winter.

1) Only do this if your pants/jeans have the length to pull this off; if they're not, you'll be looking like you have 'capri pants' on, and;

2) I'm much less inclined to roll up in shoes than I am in boots.  Today I'm rolled up, but the pants (not jeans) are long enough and sweet enough for me to rock rolled or down:

 

The boots are not AE today; sorry (sacrilege, I know)... Was gonna rock my Olive Neumoks with these pants, but the crepe soled Thomas Dean suede chukkas won out! It's merely a twist on what are limited options for men in wearing an item of clothing in a different way.  Oh...and no throat punching today, either, young man!!! :box:

please tell me you don't have a grey shirt on... PLEASE!

I didn't want to say anything, but he kind of looks like an astronaut or something.

Great boots, tho!

After some brushing this morning the Dundees are out for their maiden voyage. The color is so much better with the AE polish removed, much more character in contrast to the smooth solid color AE tried to achieve by covering them up so heavily. I still have a ways to go but they are looking amazing so far.

Yep, that's it so far.
