Allen Edmonds Appreciation Thread - Page 2714

post #40696 of 46825

So I have been tailoring all of my pants over the past couple of weeks to slim them down, and today my dad saw me wearing a pair. He said he didn't like how short they were and that I would regret getting them that short at some point in the future. He might be right, but right now, slim and short is 'in', and he verified this himself by checking out GQ's site. I don't peruse the website very often, but I started looking around today, and here's something that caught my eye:

 

 

Shoes look familiar? What about to you Xchange?? Yep, I was looking at them and then my thoughts were confirmed by the caption:

 

"5. A Prep Look the Other Guys Can’t Pull Off

LeBron knows how to find his own lane, and that goes for colors as much as drives to the rack. While D-Wade likes primary colors and Westbrook electric ones, LeBron has his own signature washed-out palette—kinda like the hotels on South Beach.

Shirt, $345 by Michael Bastian. Tie, $170 by Thom Browne New York. Pants, $198 by Unis. Shoes, $275 by Allen Edmonds. Hat by Borsalino at JJ Hat Center. Tie bar by The Tie Bar. Gray bracelet by Hermès. Watch by Audemars Piguet."

 

The AE Strandmok in navy suede. Guess I should go pick up a pair now...

I'm picking up a few.

 

On a related note, does anyone have issues getting these shoe trees to fit properly in the Fifth Street Boot? I use the same size on every shoe and boot I own with no issues, however, with the Fifth Street the tree gets hung up before expanding fully into the toe box.

Agreed. Here's to hoping Nordstrom adds these to it's next big sale.

Honestly, i'm a new customer to Allen Edmonds Shoes since the last 2weeks.

 

What i like from this brand is, they have classical nice and good shoes for various type of foot and they play on the trendy style like the Strandmok.

 

Still 8h after, i don't want to remove those shoes from my feet, the look and the comfort is UNIQUE!!! 

 

Unfortunately... it's a discontinued shoe... but for me, it's a casual classic.

Wonderful job with the polish then! The comment saying they might have been bought in two leathers sure could have fooled me with the job you did.

Next will be a pair of Rush Street...

But i like the Ridge Way too..

Damn this saddens me a bit.  I called the shoebank last week since they said they had these in my size, only to find out they didn't.  Any chance you're a 9.5D and got the last pair :tounge: 

post #40702 of 46825

YES YES and YEEESSS!! and totally fine with that LOL 

 

Actually, it was the last first selection 9.5E. 

 

But i know they may have a 9.5D somewhere but it didn't fit my foot

 

Try to call the warehouse, they can check in their stores.

 

Also, they have a pair of 9.5D Elgins in Atlanta but it seems it have a stain somewhere on one shoes.

LOL, enjoy them for me, I'm going to pretend I didn't read this idea, and maybe wait until I at least try on all my recent acquisitions first.

Not AE but Century 21 department stores apparently have shoes for $8.50!!! and for now I have too many shoes....

If that LeBron look is "In" I am happy to stay "out" ....Did he get a free bowl of soup with those clothes.

 

Really the whole skin tight clothes thing on guys just looks aweful to me....even when I could wear them....Where the hell does Lebrons bits and pieces go when he sits down....my eggs feel scrambled just looking at those pants.

 

The shoes LOOK AWESOME THOUGH...and I want a pair now.

That happens with my long branch.

I know we talk about fit here relatively often and I just wanted to point out a really awesome insert that I bought at a boot shop today. I have a low instep, which means that my feet slide even with shoes tightened since there's a gap between my instep and the shoe tongue.

 

I was given these today for a pair of chelsea boots I had on when the guy noticed how I felt wearing the shoes and my shoes felt MUCH better instantaneously.

They're JT Foote Comfort cushion arch support. Great for flat footers like me! 12 bucks a pair and made with leather!

1st wearing of brown shell cordovan Patriots. Wearing 10E's. I have calf Patriots in 10EEE but the same size in shell cordovan wasn't even close to fitting me and had to go back to AE.

I have Fifth Streets in 14D and I use the Jos A Bank trees in Size XL.  The trees can be a little sticky to get in, but I am able to maneuver them in.
