Opinions on Walnut Allen Edmonds McAllister - Page 2

post #16 of 41
Unless you manage to find C&J or better for your budget, I would not bother looking for foreign alternatives. The recrafting program by AE is less of a hassle and cheaper than sending shoes to the UK and back.

I just wish they offered them in dark brown cordovan as I already have the Strand in walnut.

Well, if you really wanted to you could replace the Strands with the cordovan version and get the walnut mcNiels.

I have the McAllisters in walnut and I love them. Receive compliments on them quite often. Great shoes and they really go well with so many outfits.

P.S., I'm posting on SF on a boat in the gulf of mexico. Do I win for best place to post on SF from?

I have the Cambridge, which is the McAllister with a double leather soul, in walnut. It's a great, versatile color. I wear it with jeans as well as odd trousers.

AE is having a second's sale for select shoes right now. Amongst those is the Lombard (walnut) and it's going for $149



Give the Shoebank a call and see if they have your size:

Don't you own a few RLPL and RLBL suits? If so, you need to step up your shoe game from AE. Just saying. They aren't bad, but your suits and shoe taste are in two different leagues.

What are seconds? I've heard the term a lot, but never understood. Second quality?

Yeah, but I like suits and sport coats much more than shoes,

Yes. Seconds are the shoes that did not pass quality checking for some reason.

I got these for $245 on sale at Amazon. I like these a lot.

To me the front wings come up too far towards the upper part of the shoe and make it look cramped. The proportions seem off. However, I do like the Strand very much and am thinking about getting a pair in walnut.

Two questions before I pull the trigger here:

1. AE mcallisters in walnut for 240. Is this a good deal or can I get them cheaper new?

2. This will be my second pair of shoes for my second suit. I already own a charcoal suit and black park aves. I am buyimg a navy suit soon and need a brown/tan pair. really like the walnut mcallisters but also have the option of brown strands. Can I make the walnut mcallisters work or are the brown strands safer?
