I'll actually be in the Bay Area in a couple weeks - wonder if I can buy and have them hold a pair of Academys...


Place that call. I'm in Missouri and called Friday night to order Higgins Mill and Alumnus. No shipping or tax charged.

Done.  

 

Barn Weasel Alert: Apparently today is the last day for that open-discount @ Palo Alto.

I was gonna pick up a Higgins Mill but I took inventory and realized I already have a lot of boots.

 

Then I was gonna pick up an Alumnus, but instead I put in an order with C&J for these:

I started a vintage shoe thread and we recently discussed a spade sole, which AE actually carried in 1960. It has come in and out of style several times, but its absence if probably now 50 years. I found it interesting that an alteration in the shape of the sole, but not the shoe, could be used as a design element. I would think that a really competent cobbler could create this look on an old pair of shoes that were being recrafted for one who really wanted a vintage look. Here is the shoe from AE, and then an actual 1940s Stetson shoe owned and submitted by @meister
. The spade feature really shows well on the outside of the left shoe, against the white background in the image. Anyone up to wearing this look now?




Doesn't Meccariello do something like this on some of his shoes?

You are right and I found this pair on his website. Spade soles with three cord weaving around the welt. These are bespoke for some specific customer.

So...Academy guys.  They run like 65-last and 201-last, right?

Pembroke? Solid choice. One of the few stock CJs that will fit me. I was very close to walking out of the Jermyn Street stire with a pair, but I left my weasels stateside...

Antonio is a consummate artist, but some of those over the top Kiton models from a few years back are just a little too...Italian for me. uhoh.gif

For those who are interested in the evolving design of Allen-Edmonds shoes, my old Lombards have brogueing on the tongues, a feature which I don't think any current A-E shoes have.

(This pair also has two of my favorite things, Poiron insoles and all rubber soles and heels.)

2 Pairs of shell. Oxblood and Whiskey. Could hurt my intentions of buying something in a future AE trunk show. Though navy on an antique edge would draw me in.

I've always liked the look of brogueing on tongues. I don't think I've seen it on any shoes, but my Long Branch boots definitely have it.

I picked these up yesterday at NR in 8 E (my normal size is 8 D).  They fit perfectly and actually feel slightly more snug than my 7.5 E Park Aves.   Now I'm thinking I'm going to hold off on wearing these until whenever the next time AE offers midnight navy in something.  Heard from the store that there is a decent chance the Strand would be sold again this Fall, but not confirmed.  I, of course am waiting for a Park Ave or Carlyle in midnight navy.   If they don't release either of those, I think I will keep these.   In the meantime, they'll remain in my closet unworn for a while.  I also realized that I have no experience with suede and need to know how to clean these guys.  I saw the original price on these was 385, which makes me believe that they are pretty recent (last 2-3 years, maybe?).  

 

 

 

And I wish these people would stop putting the W stickers on the insole of the shoes.  It leaves a nasty residue on the shoe that is hard to remove.

Those look great! Congrats on the amazing find. But please wear contrasting pants and socks next time, because otherwise....

lol, I wouldn't dare go out and wear these clothes like this.   I was just showing you how they fit.  I agree, this would look horrible like this.

Pembroke indeed. I actually have a pair of C&J GMTOs on the way in a few months as well. I kinda splurged (treating myself after starting a new higher paying job).

Gotta put a freeze on my spending but it's so difficult . . .
