I was lucky enough to find a pair of Rutledges in walnut that fit me from the shoebank. Absolutely worth $300 if its new. Do not hesitate for a second.

 

I've got a basically brand new pair of walnut Rutledges for sale right now!

 

Who wants them?  11D.

Haven't had a lot to share and work has consumed me the past couple months. But here is a horrible picture of my freshly cleaned Mcgregors and some Surly beer after a long day in which my shoes needed love.

Thanks for the reply. I went ahead and pulled the trigger. I am very excited to get them in. I was initially about 50/50 on whether or not to buy the shoes, but the recommendations from everyone here made it a no-brainer. I plan to pick up many more, but my wallet needs a rest...at least until the next sale haha.

Ah got it, thank you for the heads up. I am definitely going to give a good look at the Dundee after the Hopkinson. After that, the possibilities are both thrilling and terrifying :decisions:

I don't know your style, but like others have said, I would try and add some casual shoes/bluchers/boots/loafers.  

17 pairs...first that sounded nuts, but after 3 shoes in less than a month and a half, I can easily see this getting there. I am definitely interested in the bluchers and boots. Never been much of a fan of loafers, but I wanted to explore their casual shoes a little bit more when I have more readily available funds. Thanks!

 

Edited - I just saw your post above with your Rutledges. Very nice! I can't wait to get mine in and give them some TLC before posting some pictures.

I just ordered a pair of 9177 Shell Cordovan MacNeils and paid for them already.  I was told it would take about 6 weeks for them to be made at the factory and then they would be shipped to me.  Has anyone else gone through this process and how long did it actually take?

Awesome.  Prepare for your collection to triple if you keep hanging around this place...

 

Morning Lobster wears black Leeds (sorry for the dust from moving).

Thanks for the kind words...and I am trying to prepare for that. Hoping to keep my obsession to a reasonable pace of buying, but we all know how futile that is. Great looking shoes!

Verona II's again today- easily the most comfortable shoes I own. It feels like I'm wearing slippers:

Coincidentally, I just realized that I'm wearing bits up top as well (Brooks Brothers Country Club):

@SLCRich - I seriously crack up every time I see morning, afternoon or evening Rich. Now that @Lobster33 has jumped into the mix, my shoe game is feeling a little left out.

 

I wear these red cxl Kirks as my house shoes, so I guess I average at least 2 AEs per day. Unfortunately 'bumming around the house mP' doesn't have the same ring...

Did you do anything to them?  I've got the same pair, and those fargin' bastiges have shredded the back of my left heel twice. And they don't feel like they're slipping or moving. I'm not looking forward to the third time! :cloud:

Can I seriously be the only one on Instagram using the #filthybarnweasels hashtag? Time to step up, troops!

Back in the Madison Parks. Boy, I wish I had 2-3 more brown options...

Obvious solution is to get 2-3 more options....:devil:

I concur. I'm normally a 12B but I got my Verona IIs in 11D. It's the only size i've tried on (so I don't know, maybe 12B would be amazing), but they fit like slippers. Regular socks or loafer socks (sockless), they're just comfortable. I didn't want a pair in brown previously (as I was drawn to the black), but now I definitely do!

I don't know if the back of the leather is becoming more supple or if the back of my heels are becoming more robust. I used Saphir Renovator on the part of the leather that tore up my heal (to help in removing the blood stains) and I think that it has started to soften up the material. Today's wearing experience is far more pleasant than the previous 2 times.
