Not long, 4 months and wear them once a week.

I've had my strands with v/treads since July of last year, worn about 1-2x a week. Quite happy with them. Saves the leather from wet ground (quite important as I love in the tropics) nd provides a nice grip even on hard flat surfaces.

Does anybody know why AE stop making 7 EEE on most of the shoes?
post #42664 of 47131

Jos A Bank is having another site wide sale. Shoe trees are available for $10 a pair. A lot of folks missed out on the last sale (including myself) so this is another chance to get shoe trees at the cheap. I got 10 pairs this time :slayer:

Thank you.

Just making sure. For 10D or 9.5E I am supposed to order medium?

Im not crazy about chisel toes in general, but I think the 333 last is a pretty good attempt by allen edmonds

Agree completely with you bespoken pa.  AE's attempt at a chisel on the 3 last fails because it lacks any of the softness and refinement that other manufacturers have achieved.  Frankly, I like the discontinued zero last more than I like the current 3 last.

Hi guys. I have the strands in 10 EEE and toe forefront (toebox and everything) is just great, but the heels are way too roomy. What AE last has a wide front part, but a narrower heel part?

I can see why you like that last.  What shoes are those?

AE Evanston and Soho.  I would definitely have a pair or two if AE still made them.

Agreed. The straight tip ain't bad, either.

Well it's an AE... Isn't that the general consensus on here?
