I think they said the USA made was too costly. Both are on the 555 - if you have the opportunity to get the USA version, do it - it ain't coming back.

Thank you Neo!

Finally decided to pull out the boots. Oxblood Eagle River today.

Did anyone notice that all the Grey shoes have vanished from AE website?  Wonder what happened>??????!!!!

The Grey shoe was killed during its confrontation with the Balrog. After it is resurrected, it's signature color will change from grey to white, for it will be sent back as a significantly more powerful shoe by Eru to replace the corrupted head of the Order of Shoes and leader of the White Council Saruman, the Chief of the Order of Shoes.

If wingtips aren't being worn, is it really Wednesday?

All the split-toe talk a few days ago made me dig out the chili grain Bradleys today

For those that own the Long Branch, is it suitably water resistant for rainy/snowy/slushy city commuting?

Only working 3 days this week, rocking different gray pants with a different blue shirt every day. Dressing like an adult is easy...

Wouldnt that be kind of silly since Im not British though? But I guess if it can help remove some of that washed-out dingy funk look from some grays, it might be worth a shot.

I wear my Long Branch to shovel snow and have not had any problems. You should be good for your commute.

@Middlife is correct about wingtip Wednesday. The only issue is which pair to choose, as I now have one for each day of the week. Happy wingtip Wednesday.

I didn't even know wingtip Wednesday was a thing, but Neumoks had been in the discussion the last few days, so I thought I'd run mine out today. Based on the conversation in this thread, I am experimenting with wearing them with a darker wash than I normally do. Agave jeans, Varvatos shirt. Apologies for the low-quality pictures.

@Newberry, to add even more confusion, my SA told me that even the domican made version *can* be recrafted via AE - at least according to the person who oversees the recraft department. 

 

As Neo said, the story can change, sometimes quite significantly, depending on who you talk with.

I'm guessing Paul put the color grey up on the site and then, once he visited this forum, decided the grey wasn't going to sell well.  However, if anyone did actually order them, I'm betting AE had to tell them, "Sorry, you can't get this because demand is too low."   I wonder if anyone ordered them.

@Middlife That balrog thing was so awesome.
