post #43546 of 46936

I've just seen perhaps the ugliest MacNeil AE ever produced. Interestingly, the seller says it's on a crepe sole.

 

Processed By eBay with ImageMagick, z1.1.0. ||B2

 

 

It seems to have a very Mark McNairy feel to it, but while I do like some McNairy's make-ups, this shoe completely lacks style, IMO.

Looks like an Oreo.

I don't hate it. I really think brown split toe bluchers are a great and versatile shoe. That said the parkway puts me off a bit because of the 3 eyelets. It makes the proportions seem a little off, it almost gives it a longer sleeker look but the moc-toe makes it more casual which does not comport. I prefer the 5 eyelet on the delray, I think it has better proportions. That said his is kind of a nitpick, so if you were getting rid of it to replace with a different brown split toe blucher I would say to proceed. However if you were just a little unsure about the idea of a brown split toe in general, I would tell you to reconsider and perhaps keep it. YMMV.

This is an abomination.

Period.

I'm almost tempted to have you analyze each of my 20+ pairs...

I'm a 9.5D in the #5 last (Park Aves, etc.). Anyone know what size of #2 last (Eagle County...) I am?

(Obviously I am searching this thread for insight as well.)

9.5E would be my suggestion, it runs even more narrow compared to the 5 last in my experience

Do you have a pair? I am also in Calgary. I'm wondering if I can wear these occasionally in the winter. Am I insane?

Yeah I have a pair of Eagle County seconds that I bought specifically for a winter beater, treated them with Heavy Duty LP and the vibram sole is great.

Shoe Polish Question:

 

So right now I got 2 pairs of AE, but I have never polished shoes before so I am kind of confused on the process. So basically

1. Brush shoe

2. Conditioner Cleaner

3. Polish Paste

4. Brush shoe

5. Cotton Cloth

 

Do I need to do condition cleaner every time? How many shoe brush/cotton cloth do I need? 2 brushes and 1 cloth for each color or can the 1st brush be shared among all shoes?

post #43557 of 46936

1. Brush shoe

2. Conditioner Cleaner

3. Buff out the cleaner - cotton cloth or brush, doesn't matter

3. Polish Paste

4. Brush shoe

5. Cotton Cloth

 

Yea, that's what I would do...pretty much it.....As you go along, you'll find other products, but it's pretty much the same concept. apply xyz, buff it out, apply xyz, buff it out.

How many brush/cloth do you need? Like do I need a different brush for each step and each color or can 1 brush do it all?

Lastly, what is the difference/preference between polish, cream and wax? (doesnt the polish have some wax in it?)

Their product is wax based so I wasnt sure I use the same steps. Plus I am still not sure how many different brushes do I need :)
