This is the first time I saw the red cxl Neumok 2.0 (right) at the store. It actually looks pretty cool. Kind of makes me want to return the merlot McAllisters I ordered. I already have enough dress shoes but need more casual shoes and I think you can dress down the Neumok 2.0 more. Who knows how much they'll be on sale during the RDA Sale..

Holy crap they are! Never see Shell Daltons in my size, let alone at $399! Someone buy those, quickly.

The she'll Daltons in the Shoebank, in a smaller size in which I now order all of my shoes, may be worth grabbing, especially if I can order them through Palo Alto and can get a few bucks for my calf pair on eBay. 🤔

What you said makes perfect sense. For about 100-150 more you will have a brand new shell version that will offer a better fit. It's not going to last, so make your decision quick. I am contemplating picking up shell Leeds, Dundees or MacNeil.

Yea. The red cxl looks 10x better than the online pics, but I've seen first quality Neumoks go for $199 on sale. I think I'll wait and see how they'll be priced during the RDA Sale. Maybe they wont be priced that low or maybe they will...

A shell fitting question. My limited experience with shell is that it seems more difficult to pull it tightly to the last during construction. I have trued the same size and style in calf and shell, and the shell fits looser and, for me, more comfortable.

 

My experience with Park Ave is that it and other 65 lasted balmoral shoes fit too tightly across the vamp and the V gap is unacceptably wide. I am tempted to order a shell PA from the bank in the hopes that it fits better for me than calf. To those who have experience with shell and calf in the 65 last, this a realistic possibility? Or is my desire for more shell, like my lust for the high school cheerleader, simply a misplaced and an unobtainable fantasy?

Woah, they offered a park ave in blue suede?! I picked these up today at NR. They also had a Baton Rogue for $70, but not my size.

When did AE sell a blue suede Park Ave?

Totally realistic. My shell strands fit better across the instep than my calf fifth aves. Not a huge difference, so it depends what the tightness is like for you to begin with.

He seemed a little sad that he had to tell me this until I told I had made sure to pick up a pair of Burnished Merlot McAllisters at the recent sale :)

If that is true that is sad news indeed.  The Merlots looked awesome, but by the time that final sale was on my size was gone.   Who knows, the color may return in a couple of seasons.

It might have been someone's SMU, or perhaps a webgem from several years ago. It looks like the lighter blue suede that AE used for the Players shoe back in 2010ish.

Props for the new Oak Street. Kudu is incredibly comfortable, it deserves more attention.

 

 

 

Also, 

 

tried swapping the brown Higgins Mill's brown laces with the tan laces from the natty. I rather like it. There are probably cheaper ways to get this lacing look, but my inner barn weasel thinks it's an excellent reason to buy both...

Anyone know where I can get this in 11.5D or 12D?  Allen Edmonds is out!  I've tried everything.

Nordstrom rack is selling the Fairfax online. Anyone seen these in person? Trying to determine if these are true first quality, or if they are the made-for-rack versions.
