post #46351 of 46879

got my third pair of allen edmonds at a steal.

been wanting to get some chromexcels for awhile now.

first choice was the Rush st. but could not pull the trigger as something seemed off.

the clark st was my 2nd choice am so glad i got it as pictures don't do the shoe justice.

 

they are a different animal from the AE stock photos I've seen. they are nice heavy supple

and the colour is just so versatile. love the danite sole very very comfy!! love mine.

 

here some photos and comparing with some Alden PTB chromexcels

I saw recently that AE stores will sometimes price match the Nordstrom sale. Any idea if they'd price match a belt in a color not carried by Nordstrom? I'm looking for a Merlot Manistee, but don't want to pay $120 for it.

Funny you should post this. I was just looking around the AE website today and thinking that I really needed to get a pair of those. (although I'd have to special order them with a leather sole, as I cannot stand the Dainite)

Think you should go for it. The shoe is beautiful in person
Most of my shoes are of these shape and love them,quite happy with the
Danite sole. Live in asia always wet and damp and the leather sole will
Be dead in no time. Also most of my shoes have lesther sole so wanted someyhung
More durable.

Any reason why you dont like the dainite sole?

I find walking on pavement rather uncomfortable until the studs have worn a bit.

Ie if I am at 10.5C in the 5-65, what am I likely to be in the 333?

Thanks

Of course this may be different for others but I take the same size and width in both the 5-65 last and the 333 last.  I measure 11.5D to 12D on the Brannock, but I require an 11E for both the AE Park Avenue (5-65 last) and the AE Harrison (333 last).  The 11.5D fit me in width on both lasts, but I felt the length was too long.  When I went down to the 11D on both, they were too narrow at the widest part of my foot, and were both painful.  11E was my best fit even though I have a fairly low instep and can lace both of them nearly completely closed, but they are comfortably snug and I don't mind the closed vamp since I think it looks better to be closed or nearly closed on a balmoral oxford.

Enjoy...these have been one of my favorite purchases...I wear them a ton so I used that Honey Oil stuff on the sole as I am not shy about slapping these on during rain...I recently also applied a very light treatment with Aussie balm to the uppers...again do to them being used in all weather.

FYI, so no one goes jumping off bridges today...just checked the AE website, and no sign of any discontinuation...still available in all sizes without any restrictions.

Cross-posting from MTO thread . . . 

 

Maiden voyage of my black CXL MacNeils:

 

 

I'm still on the fence about them.  In case it's not obvious from the pic, the dye doesn't penetrate the leather, so brown shows through the broguing and pinking.  Evidently this is what you get when you get black CXL from AE.  I'm not completely opposed to the look, though, so I've decided to wear them anyway, and if ultimately they end up bugging me too much I'll send them off to B. Nelson to let Nick work his magic.

 

OTOH, they are comfortable as hell - Poron insole plus sizing up by 1/2 means my feet feel cocooned.

I think the Rush Streets are great. I definitely love mine.

What do you use to protect the linen on the Strawfut? For suede I normally spray it with a suede protector. What do you recommend for the linen? Thanks!

Wearing my first pair of shell shoes ever purchased - faded out Kenwoods.  They need some work after some rain and they need a new soles.  Just like wearing slippers.

Found out today that the Shoe Bank is only so reliable. Any MTO seconds are not listed in inventory and are drastically reduced. Today, I found a pair of brown Leeds with V-tread for $125 dollars. Salesman said that when people place orders for MTOs and they become seconds, there isn't any way to inventory them, so you just have to check out the store and see if they are there. I feel like I got really lucky today.

Whoah. Which outlet were you at? Port Washington? If only I could make it up there.

I was at Mebane, NC. They had a ton of things to choose from that are not on Shoe Bank.
