But it is true that the frugal struggling artist of my yesteryears had to be broken into the fine footwear addiction gently, and in tiered phases. At first I would only go for 2nd quality clearance models and struck gold at Century 21. Now it's Vass MTOs and Alden preorders. FML. Sometimes I still get a little disgusted with myself when I remember how hard I had to struggle for so long, as a full priced pair of shells would have covered a full month's rent and expenses back then.

But times change. I imagine I'll be done with footwear soon, once it's time to start saving for something more important (like a piano) wink.gif

 

Steinway Piano ;)

AE's walnut shell is such a different color from their walnut calf. I like the color so much more. Agree, that it's a pity they don't do more of it.

What are these?

The Dawson. Not sure if I like these or not. Calf upper, bicycle toe on a single oak sole. Maybe they will grow on me.

Happy Walnut Wednesday, gents!

 

There was a recent discussion about the fit of these. Both of my First Aves are the same size as my 5-last shoes. 9D in these boots fit great; 9D in 65 is a little snug. With the 201, too much volume is my issue - but these seem to be doing alright (about 4-5 wears in on these walnuts, about 10 on the brown grain version).

This pair seems like a schizophrenic design. Black patent leather wingtip with red contrast stitching and a mini lug sole. The Ridgeway. Yea or Nay? Discuss among yourselves.

Gotta disagree here.

 

Walnut shell looks like bourbon calf.

 

Natural shell looks like walnut calf.

 

I'm not a big fan of either bourbon calf or, by extension, walnut shell.

Just picked up a good looking pair of Brown 5th Avenues on eBay for $55.  Overall in good shape, but i'm going to send them back to be re-crafted (never done that before).  Should get a great pair of shoes for 1/2 price.

What are people's thoughts on the Eagle Country (Tan)?  Like or dislike?  I see a pair in my size on the bank everyday.  $177 seems like a pretty good deal for boots although I seem to remember hearing about the sole coming off.

Emphatic Nay.

You're free to disagree. Really a preferential thing. I prefer darker colored leather in general and don't really like walnut calf like the rest of the group.
