Make that on the 8 last, and I'm in.

Since AE discontinued the Kenilworth, I expect them to release some kind of plain toe derby substitute, so I hope...

Yeah the 8 last is pretty nice

I love the 8, the clifton maybe my favorite AE offering.

I love EVERYTHING about these boots - the color of the shell, the fact that they're unlined, the flat laces, the eyelets, etc.  If only I could get my hands on a pair of the 721 LTDs too.

 

Speaking of unlined shell, was anyone else aware that AE won't do MTOs in unlined shell anymore?  Apparently there were too many QC issues.  The last shoe they did it with was the walnut Dalton, and halfway through production they gave up and started lining them.  So, if you have a pair of unlined Daltons (as I do :slayer:), you'll be happy to know they're even more collectors' items than you thought.

I agree absolutely love everything about the 744's yours are looking great, nicely done! For some reason the 721 LTD doesn't do anything for me, but then again I don't own them. I was not aware of no more unlined MTO's in shell anymore. My walnut Dalton's were ordered the week they came out as a webgem and are unlined and comfortable 12 months out of the year.

Olive, Snuff, Tan and White Suede options

Unlined

1 last or 8 last

5 eyelet

Storm welt

Single waterlock sole or Danitie

Bonus points for exposed eyelets

 

 

I actually had this shoe at one point.  Very flimsy.  It was nubuck and not suede.  Also, got dirty REALLY fast, and once it did, it was impossible to get clean again.  How about a suede Leeds instead?

I have suede Leeds (Stewart, to be precise) and wear them a lot during the hot season.

 

At this point, AE's offerings in the PTB and LWB departments are nothing short from pathetic.

I have both and the 721 LTD has definitely grown on me. I like the unique shape of the 721's toes a lot. Wonder if Wolverine will come up with another cordovan boot this year. It's been a while since the 744's release.

The 721 is vastly under represented IMHO.

Whoah, what?

I had to list the MTO Daltons in the marketplace. 

They were just not working for my feet, unfortunately.

I wish I could have made them work.

Something like the Stewart is exactly what I would want, unlined if it isn't already. I would grab a snuff pair in a heartbeat, though I would have to MTO a chili welt and light brown transparent edge if it didn't come that way.

Yup, Kenilworth style is now on clearance. Allison recently confirmed that the style could not be selected as a MTO, since it is now a discontinued/clearance model...

Why not just grab a snuff suede Alden PTB? BB has it on sale once in a while. This spring it was ~$370, not much more than you'd pay for AE MTO.

I second this emotion. I thought they were committed to the notion of keeping "timeless classics" in a variety of lasts. But, in relatively short order they have dropped a tan/walnut pebble grain LWB (MacNeil), snuff (or tan) unlined suede wingtip (Neumoc), and a smooth (or shell) LWB (Kenilwoeth). And do they still have a spectator?

I don't get it. And having a plain shoe in white/dirty/snuff would be great improvement. I don't get the strategy.

Maybe they're not selling well. Might be that simple.

I don't think they necessarily care about having all the classic bases covered at the expense of keeping the production line efficient.
