Allen Edmonds Appreciation Thread - Page 3068

post #46006 of 50997

I decided to take some pictures of my entire collection.

Wow, I'm definitely hooked on my AE shoes.  It started in part by my size 14E available in so many styles, and grew from there.

 

Here's the collection:

22 Pairs of shoes (1 hair of boots included)
Top (farthest back):
Black Fifth Street boots, black lasalle, MTO Lowry Hill (my own Great Gatsby influenced design)
 
Walnut Jermyn, Burgundy Cordovan Randolph, Burgundy Cambridge, Burgundy Shell Bradley, Walnut Carlsbad
 
MTO Chili Grain Lowry Hill, Walnut Jefferson, Burgundy Adams, Chili Maxfield, Burgundy Manchester
 
Tan sedona, brown jefferson, brown Wilbert,  
black/brown nashua, chili bradleys
 
 Blue sedona, Tan nashua, MTO Merlot Winter Park, Walnut Winter Park
 
I apologize for the image quality, just an iPhone.
 

 

A close up of my three pair of shells (now I'm getting into them thanks to the thread) all 14 E (Randolph's the latest)

(bottom to top) Randolph, Cambridge, and Bradley (all Burgundy Shell, and all Seconds — seem very nice to me) 

 

I hope this inspires people to post some of their collections.

 

See the MTO thread for closeups of the latest 2 MTO Lowry Hill.

 

Whew, time to slow down and find some shoe storage for all these.

 

Any thoughts on good shoe storage?

Just had to ask. Top 3 favorites and why?

Gosh! I left out one specialty pair:

My custom, made from Allen Edmonds, bowling shoes, soles added from local cobbler:

Started out as tan saddle finch, added dance Chrome leather for left slide shoe sole, special vinyl for right (with Chrome leather tip), and non marking heels (see bottom pic)

Gosh, my top three would be between:

Randolphs because they fit fantastic.

My Jeffersons fit and feel great as well, and I sure do like Wingtip shoes.

 

I try to wear all of them every now and then.  I'm torn between the rest, so to speak, because

they all have their merits, some more weather resistant, some just comfy. 

I am finding I'm drifting to like leather soles over rubber (started out with more rubber sole).

Indeed mine do too!  They sometimes wonder if I have on a new pair or if I've already had them.

There's something off about those chukka boots.

 

Maybe it's the angle of the shot, but the flaps look like they're too close together, and the four pairs of eyelets just look strange to me (the exposed metal grommets don't help either).

post #46013 of 50997

Just picked up these!

Like most AE boots they suffer from lack of eyelets. If they had 6 it would look better imo, otherwise I think they look pretty good too. Kind of a plain toe Promontory

Look like a great biz casual/casual boot.

If I didn't know any better, I would guess AE is experimenting with bleaching effects. It is evident on the toe and heels of these new models. I wonder what leather they are using for this, calf maybe?

Just picked up a pair of supposedly new McAllisters on ebay at a price I couldn't resist. They seem to have a different heel pattern than the pair I purchased from Shoebank (bottom pair) though. Any thoughts on the difference? Are they a really old run or have they been resoled?

I have never seen a heel pattern like that in mine.
