I get this done before wearing them outside. I wear the shoes around the house for a week or so, they start to mold a bit then get a topy or vibram added.

The Park Ave on the 65 last does not fit well and the vamp is too tight for me. The Rutlegde on the 333 is larger and fits me very nicely. Given my limited experience with two shoes, I would say you would certainly not go up in size for the 333 last and you well may be going down.

"What beautiful shoes!"
"Thanks" and the conversation starts.
Mission accomplished.

Anyone with experience the old 0 last, eg, the Bel Air?

The 000 - really limited, going based on memory.  It worked well for high arch but way too much room / width in the front.  I'm pretty sure the 234 was supposed to be its derivative.

Is there some secret sale we don't know about?
It looks like shoes from the CAC are missing. Perhaps it's a glitch.

What is the CAC?

Customer Assistance Center I believe is what that refers to. Basically their customer service center attached to the factory in Port Washington, WI.

 

And, I too have noticed many shoes disappearing within the last day or day and a half.

I've got a pair of Kingsleys that are on the 0 last. I feel that they have a narrow, pointed toe box.

@mreams99 Definitely agree about the narrow pointed toe - I'm not the best person to comment on this - it had that Grayson - like toe but too much room elsewhere. Just completely wrong shape for me.

Strange lighting, but rocking some dark chili Madison Parks with my Strand Briefcase at my national medical specialty meeting. The shoes look a lot more red (and uneven on the vamp) in this light than usual.

(I wore my Walnut Sandersons yesterday, which actually matched the bag.....)

Brown Strandmoks for an IKEA trip today. I didn't like the fake burnishing on the toes, so I've been treading them with brown shoe cream for the past few months.

Something I've always wondered:  If you get a pair of shoes made, can you opt out of the distressing???  I am not a fan, and I am sure others are with me on this.

I'm hoping that I can ask them not to distress them when I get these refurbished. However, I can't seam to wear down the dainite soles...

Those look great! I have Dark Chili McAllisters, and I also notice the reddish a lot, but I like it.

Love the bag, too! I just told my wife yesterday that I want one. The only problem is that I wear a charcoal overcoat in the Winter, and I really don't want a black one. The tan is amazing, but I don't know how it would look.

What can I use to make my Rush Streets a little darker? They are a little too light for my taste. Can I use brown wax or cream?
