How does the 201 compare to 65? Similar length? Similar Width?

No worries.   I forgot that I have a 201 lasted shoe.  Fifth avenue pebble grain. It does feel better in the tow box than my 65 lasted shoes

Ok so here is deal. I just placed an order. The orders will not be put in until Monday. They will NOT do ANY customizations; no Indy lining, no edge or welt changed. How that shoe comes in its calf version of same color is how it will come. At least this is what I was told when I placed my order. I ordered the cornwallis in brown and burgundy but told the SA that if I can't get the burgundy with the chili edge I don't want it as I don't like it with the normal black.

Ugh! What a bummer! I guess it's essentially a leather change.

Oh well. My wallet rejoices then.

These rules were entirely predictable though unfortunate. However, there are still some options which may work within these rules.

 

Using the Odenwald as an example, there are 2 (very) different welt options which you could choose from, then add the material change.  

 

If you automatically used the brown Odenwald and added brown shell, you'd only have one welt option...

but you might prefer the chili welt of the black Odenwald if you bought a pair with brown shell.

 

There are many examples where multiple welts/soles/etc are available, so worth reviewing shoe by shoe.

Confirmed. It isn't a true MTO. Intersecting they call burgundy cherry.

Visit or call Allen Edmonds in New Orleans to order Cordovan styles in black, brown or cherry and complete the look with a custom sole of either Black All-Weather Dainite, Independence, Redenbacher or Butyl soles. Available styles include any in-line welted shoe or boot.

Get Burgundy anything if you were to ask me. Seems like you like Balmorals, so I would stick with something classic, like the Strand... Maybe have fun like our friend and do it with a lighter edge, unless you are pepper in which case ignore that recommendation.

That's right! Black is always best! wink.gif

Learned that from Mac, by the way.

Sounds like they aren't allowing welt and edge changes. Just uppers and soles.

I thought about it after my post about not being able to justify the price, but i did think shell/shearling would be cool. However i know the toe cap is going to get wrecked on the First Aves with how long the cap is without a proper stiffener. Makes me hesitant to purchase the First Avenue at full price for calf, grain or shell.

I agree, was thinking that shell rolling wouldnt be as bad and add in the shearling it might offset even further creasing. it is really the lug sole thing that is getting me...I would want these for some cold weather outdoor fun...not shoveling but going to games which often involve grossness of some sort- trips to the city in foul weather...maybe ski trip...who knows. 

 

I see the vtread working for someone who is walking a lot in winter and needs it still to retain a classier profile...but that aint me..lol

Well, that makes me feel better - I could order a Cognac McTavish in Brown Shell and be pretty happy, but I really want an Alden NST (especially in Ravello or Whiskey) and for that money without being an MTO, I'll just wait...

post #8745 of 9368

Does anyone have any intel on whether "cherry" shell = burgundy?
