New brown moras. Fit and construction both look great! One issue is the left toe is creasing already. Anyone see an issue with this?

Anyone wanna buy the boots I'm selling in my sig so I can help finance this??:cry:

 

 

These are really gorgeous.  The top pair reminds me of @FatTuesday 's from the old thread:

@danwatts2005 , this is the best non-AE filthy barnweaseling of the evening.

@Captain Insano When I picked up my Beckman the IR was my other option. Crazy horrible breakin - curious to know how bad it was for the IR. Also, is it just me or are the wax laces absolutely garbage that snap after like 2 weeks of wear.

I think the laces on the IR are more durable and work boot like. They don't look as good, but very durable. They probably won't break for years. My only complaint about the laces is they are a tad short for this boot.

I have heard the beckman breakin is rough. Breakin varies on the IR depending on the leather type. These IRs in the copper rough and tough leather the breakin was fine. This leather is pretty "soft" for Red Wing leather (but appears to be durable as hell after I have done lots of wood, dirt, outside work in them). Overall, this is my favorite Red Wing boot for comfort and outside physical work.

My black Brogue Rangers had a hell of a breakin. That black chaparral leather was stiff as F. But good now. I think that boot/leather breaks in similar to a Beckman.

My 8181 classic round in muleskinner roughout leather is my most comfortable overall. Breakin was butter. I don't work outside in that one.

What's going on here, Red Wing appreciation?
I thought that I was in the minority here, with my regular rotation of Red Wings.

Sorry back on topic. The weather was shitty here. I would never subject my AEs to this weather, but the RWs were built for it.

Newb question, perhaps... but can you compare the fit of these vs McAllisters?  I just grabbed a merlot pair in the sale and am trying to get my mind around if its the same shoe for another $400 in shell...

 

Yours looks great, btw.  Tots obvz tho...

post #3085 of 19334

Do any of you use heel taps? My heels wear very quickly on all of my AE shoes.

post #3086 of 19334

Some recent additions:

 

Walnut Fifth Avenues from Shoebank (10C)

MTO #8 shell Park Avenues with Double JR sole (10C)

Indy Brown Bartletts (9 1/2 D)

 

Once I figure out the how to up-load  from my cell phone, I'll have some action photos w/ watch and coffee. (My co-workers are waiting for me to spill the coffee!)

 

Also, though I haven't yet gone laceless,  I found the Patriot to be much tighter than the Randolf which I wound up purchasing from our favorite E-bay seller in a 10B.

Wow some great looking shoes going up on this Sunday.  Those shell strands @RichieP...ugh I was already tempted by lace less and now I'm a full fledged cult member of that crew.  Every shell picture makes me shell envious and those are gorgeous

I'm right there with you. When I bought the Cambridges two years ago, I had browser windows open with them and the Jeffersons I had tried at my first fitting. I went back and forth enough to tell there were only very slight variations of the broguing around the foot opening and down along the laces, but yeah, they're basically the same shoe. McAllister looks similar enough to me as well.

They're all 65 last, and that fits great on me. Some will say that shell fits a bit looser. I find this to be true with these in the morning, and I do pull my laces tighter when I get to work, but I guess my feet get slightly bigger as they day goes on, because by mid-afternoon, I don't notice it at all.
