Not quite. It used to be a stock boot not so long ago. Not sure whether it is still in production though.

My new Kenilworths are squeaking a lot on the uppers, it sounds like its the tongue straining against the eyelet flaps. Im pretty sure they are sized right, my other Kenilworths are 11D and they were a bit big. These are 10.5D, perhaps I am in between 10.5D and 10.5E, but they arent obviously tight or anything. 

 

Could the squeaking be excess polish from the factory? Will this go away once I break them in? Im about ready to walk a couple miles to get rid of this noise.

Try a little baby powder on just the tongue, should do the trick...

This was an MTO I did a few months ago. You don't like it?

I'd be curious to know how many of those AE actually sold.

Zero, hopefully.

Well, lets look at this realistically. If you consider that most men are content to wear box shaped, bike toed, glue jobs. I can see how such men would consider this boot an upgrade, or even fashionable.

IMO the biggest atrocities in the shoe world are credited to Prada, which i will abstain from posting here, at risk of causing sudden burning blindness...

They need a few rubes to pad their margins so we can keep getting great deals on MTOs

So, yesterday I purchased a pair of Park Avenues. I wear a 10.5 in Strand, so I assumed that a 10.5 in Park Avenue would fit the same, since they are on the same last.

 

Alas, I have to return them. The left shoe feels tight around the arch of my foot, and the top of the right shoe rubbed at the top right portion of my foot, seeming to indicate that it was too large. Seriously, one felt too small and the other too large?

 

Anyone have any input on this? My Strands feel great, and felt great out of the box. The Park Avenues felt very wrong out of the box.
