Allen Edmonds Appreciation Thread 2016 - News, Pictures, Sizing, Accessories, Clothing, etc - Page 768

post #11506 of 17811

Hi all, this is my first post on Style Forum.  I've been a long time AE fan but it was never part of my "online" life.  Now it is.  I look forward to reading this thread (and the Alden thread) and learning.  

 

I'm going shopping for boots this weekend and will be looking at the Higgins Mill--might be hard to pass up at the sale price.  

 

Here are a few of my AEs.  I'll get pictures of the others and post as I wear them.

 

Walnut Fifth Avenues

 

Merlot McAllisters


Black Jodox

Dayom...cant help you with your question...but Im liking that nat so far...stellar looking boot

I'd wait for some feedback on the sole. Something tells me the HM is gonna become a staple and be harder to get than the Academy.

Decided to order HM in black and natural from Palo Alto and Academy in natural. Pulling a Tex and will send back what I don't want to keep.

It's been a rough day for my Visa card lol

They added some great new leathers (kudu) and colors (navy CXL) for the Oak Street. I have a pair in brown (the old brown) and love those shoes. I'm SO TEMPTED by the navy.
Is anyone else with me on this?

I really like cap toe on the Oak Street (perhaps more than academy) but no need for dainite sole in a non-boot.

You will love them.  The problem is you get them and want to keep them all! :)

I'm regretting that I didn't buy the Navy Dundee in suede.  :(  Maybe I'll get the Strand Navy suede when it goes on sale later or that Leiden Navy leather/suede

I'm with ya. That navy is mighty tempting. I love my Lexingtons, and I'm sure I'd love Navy Oak Street's too.

I love Navy everything!  It's the color of choice for me BUT I don't need any more causal shoes.  I have too many casual shoes I can't wear as it is. :(   I need to add a casual Friday!  LOL

I was going to purchase the Neumok 2.0 if on sale during the RDA Sale, but I don't think I need to now that I ordered the merlot McAllisters. I know the McAllister is a dress shoe and the Neumok a casual shoe, but how dressed down would you guys wear a pair of merlot McAllisters? Just curious...

HM has some dents.  Does anyone else have this issue or is this UPS playing football with the boxes?
