You can get shell, the upcharge is higher in addition to the price difference for the shell.  Call AE or an AE store.  They can add place the order for you, quote a price, and estimate delivery time.

Anyone know what last the Melrose is on? Looks to be discontinued and I couldnt find that information anywhere. Thanks!

PS -- UPS Tracking shows my Blue Neumoks will arrive tomorrow! icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

I am working on my business casual wardrobe and I recently purchased some Fifth Avenues in Dark Brown. I am looking to buy a black shoe now as well. What style do you guys recommend?

For business casual, the sky is the limit really. Quintessentially, the Park Avenue should be the last black shoe you will ever need. Aside from black tie events that is smile.gif

I was just wondering if anyone has had the chance to try on the neumoras in person yet and can give me an idea of the fit. I don't have an AE store nearby so I might have to order online, but I am apprehensive about buying without having a good idea for sizing.

 

For reference: usually the 5 last in balmorals fit well for me (but not for bluchers, which tend to be too loose on my foot). I also have a pair of macneils, which have good width, but the clipped toe bothers me sometimes (perhaps the toe is too short). Thanks!

So I placed the order. This is what I went for...

182

As I say, the mockup on the AE website looks pretty crap. The specs are:

Wingtip = Walnut Calf
Vamp = Walnut Calf
Eyestays = Walnut Calf
Quarters = Walnut Calf
Backstay = Walnut Calf
Stitching = Tone on Tone
Welt = Natural Standard
Sole = Leather
Insole = Leather

That is one shoe that I wish was offered as standard model. I'm not a fan of the walnut pebble grain but never wanted to take the step for a custom order. Looking forward to seeing yours! If you check around, AcousticFoodie has a pair of walnut macneil's that look absolutely amazing with some wear on them. They are simply stunning!! You made a great choice.

 

Incidentally, I ran into a similar sizing solution with the macneil, a half size up in length from my brannock size worked better than increasing the width. I'm an 11D TTS and went to a 11.5D in the Macneil. I've found that the #1 lasted Leeds fits the best of all the AE lasts as I have a slightly tall instep.

They look terrific, I'm sure I'm person they'll be even better. Great choice with the natural edge trim.

Mine shipped yesterday (ordered March 5); supposed to arrive tomorrow! icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

I'll post pics this weekend, hopefully...

Good to know about the sizing! Yeah I would have been all over them ages ago if they we're offered on the AE website. AcousticFoodie was actually part of my inspiration - I really didn't like the pebble grain and it took me a while to pull the plug on these simply because of the added $ and possible sizing issues. I'll be sure to take some photos when they arrive in 4-6 weeks bored.gif

I certainly hope they look great. Thanks for the morale boost!

Sorry for the bump, just curious if anyone here has the knowledge (or a knowledge base I can consult) on the above. Thanks!

Okay, think I just found that they are on the 0 last. Assuming this is true, anyone have any experience with the 0? I wear a 7.5D very comfortably in the 5 and trying to figure out how the 0 might fit (without going to the store, of course).

Just got my Dundees today. They look great; no QC problems. I ordered my usual 10E w/ some trepidation, since others said that the Malverns ran short & narrow. The Dundees in 10E fit just like all my other 10Es. The color of the cappuccino shell is definitely lighter than my brown shell Strands. I'm happy w/ them.
