Ebay, sometimes (which is where I got mine). But yeah, it was only available for a year or two.

I got mine in black on ebay and like them a lot ($159 when live was doing $30 cashback, so I was pretty happy with about $120 shipped out of pocket). The truth is I actually like a rounder toe on my chelseas, but they are a nice shoe, and they'll get a lot of use. I'll go for a wider toe when I get around to ordering my RM Williams in brown.

There you go again with those wild, unfounded assumptions.

Allen Edmonds still has a handful left in their system for closeout prices. You can try calling into the shoe bank and ask if they have your size.

Sorry to revive a thread...but would anyone know which last this boot was built on?

I am looking at a pair of older AEs in the Buy&Sell forums...they are 8.5D. The only point of reference I have is a pair of Tauntons I tried on (9d) which fit quite well but I know fit can vary depending on the last.

As an English shoe enthusiast from London (and seller) new to styleforum, may I ask how these American brands such as AE compare to the British made shoes? Perhaps the styling is more contemporary in a lot of cases but are they made very well? I may order some to the UK to see for myself. Where can one buy them at a fair price? Oh and I can get wide fit shoes easily for all Northampton makes but certainly it is the medium/ average fit that most people have here. Many thanks.

AE generally speaking is excellent value for the money if you can get it on special offer or discount, which means a price of $100-$200. Closeouts/2nds can go as little as $99 from the AE store on ebay or direct from the factory stores (who do mail order as well) Used ones on ebay can go for as little as $50.

Construction unfortunately is not 100% consistently good...more like 80%. I've found that the stitching on the ankle portion of the shoe to be uneven on 1 pair in the store and in another, the glue had been sloppily slapped on the leather insole. Minor quibbles if you can get it for a good price though. AFAIK, all of them are goodyear welted in a channel.

Their appearance can depend on the model as well. Pictures can be deceiving. Most of the newer models are built on the 0 or 8 last, which are a little more contemporary. The more traditional ones are built on the 5 last, which can be a little staid.

The leather is quite good in most cases though. Thick, built to last, lovely feel, takes a good shine. My brown Moras are the simply the best shoe I own.

Comfort wise - no problem. All my AEs are delights to walk in and I think it's hard to find many unhappy customers with respect to shoe comfort.

Sizing - I'm lucky to have very typical feet so my size has been consistent across all the different models I've tried.

Actually I would say the American makers, which really are only AE and Alden, are quite humdrum compared to the English offerings.

Thanks wetnose an yfyf. I will buy some at the top end just to compare. What about Kenneth Cole? I honestly know very little about them but a friend of mine bought some when in NYC and said they are good.
