I agree; they chose a poor example shoe and/or took some very poor photos. However, I expect that I'd like the actual product.

Thanks for the heads up, Chris!

I'm drawn to the Long Branch in dark brown grain leather, but I don't know if I would have enough opportunities to wear them. I'm holding out for burgundy cordovan Daltons.

I doubt it is actually better for one's foot to get used to the soreness...

these do look quite nice.

don't you think, though, that straight lacing would work better for these (and most balmorals)? the fat laces are almost obscenely crowding the narrow slit between the quarters!

Try the European straight lace.  Works well on Balmorals and Derbys.

sigh, you don't get used to the soreness. You get used to walking on a harder insole, and the soreness goes away.

Does anyone know when the Labor Day sale starts, and what shoes may be available?  And also what the discount would be, for either 1st or 2nds?  ie. 25% off, buy 2 for $300, etc...

 

Thanks....

Yes, it likely would.  However, I got them before I would have known about that, and now the laces have left indentations on the tongue that would show if I relaced them.  Not sure how to deal with that problem.

Based on how that shoe fits your foot, I do not think anyone will see the tongue.  That said, I'm not a fan of Europoean straight lacing on a casual shoe.  I'm beginning to appreciate its benefits on my dress shoes, but it would seem off to me in a casual shoe like the Elgin.

Started yesterday, the 20th, but only on call in's to their main stores (hit up putthison.com). Unless they open that up to the website at some point?

To each his own.  The European lace has worked well for me on a variety of shoes.
