You're welcome... icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

I've been dying to get my hands on a pair of Strands. I hope it's included in the sale. Thanks for the heads up

Could you clarify what Discover America is? Thanks
post #9678 of 43041

Loving the recent pics (especially Cold Iron's new #8 Dundees). My Chili Regent Streets came today, so I would just like to share some pictures, because we all know how AE's stock pics are a disservice to how great these shoes actually look in person. I was originally looking to pick up a pair of Daltons for the fall, but when I went into the store I was really taken aback at the texture contrast and color of these Regent Streets. I think they are a little bit more versatile than the Daltons as a semi-casual wingtip, which I can really only wear for 2 seasons (some would disagree). 

 

Along with Burnished Brown Parkways and Walnut Strands to show the color differences

 

 

 

A closeup to highlight the grain/smooth leather contrast

 

 

 

The 4 Last is also EXTREMELY comfortable. I highly recommend this shoe to diversify your lineup

I don't have any newer AE shell to compare them to, but here are my 2 year old shell Dundees:



I just placed an order for another pair in black; I'm excited to see them.

Just #8. I wish I had grabbed the truffle when it was available.

Do the shell cordovan belts ever go on sale?

On a related note, I heard from AE that there is a real shortage of shell cordovan, so this boot makeup going on right now might be be the last shell webgem for a while. I think I will be ordering shortly.
Also, the rediscover America sale is coming up 9/24 if anyone is waiting on the next sale.

 

Thank you bucksfan, and I hope you receive a fantastic pair of boots! Hopefully Horween can catch up with the shell shortage sooner than later.

I wasn't excited by the stock pictures of the Cronmok. But then when AE sent the supplemental catalog with the shell samples it was on the cover and that changed:

Somehow I don't own any longwings yet blush.gif and those look fantastic. Thanks for the pictures, that texture contrast and chili color is perfect for longwings IMO, I really like those a lot.

Those have aged absolutely beautifully, and look fantastic. I hope mine do as well. Great picture too. Congrats on the black shell Dundee's coming!

Congrats on the Regents Spitshine123. The leather texture contrast and Chili color are beautiful.

Agreed, the Cronmoks originally did not have much appeal to me in the stock photos, but I may be in for a pair of tan ones based on the supplement picture you shared.

I heard from an SA here in Dallas that the Cronmok would be in the Rediscover sale, so double confirmed they should be available on sale soon.

I also heard AE will do a Fall 2.0 launch at some point, so there is still hope for those bourbon shells!

So yesterday I went and tried on some Macneils in a 9.5D. Everything felt fine, minus the left being slightly tight in the ball of my foot. Looking back I should have tried a 9.5B.
Based on what I told you, do you think I should try a B or just stick with a D?

If the D was tight on the ball, why would you go for a B, which is tighter?

I've noticed this in my shoe after 2 wears. Is something like this normal? I don't think it looks good. a8amy4as.jpg

The bulging heel-cap is what's bothering you?
