One can filter by last # on the Shoebank website. Selected 1943 and there they were, so @naspratt was indeed correct. Dunno where it came from, tho.

Well, I just tried that trick, and it turns out the Bloor Street is on the 201 last. The whole shape of the shoe still seems the same as a PA, but I guess they aren't really the same. I guess this makes the Bloors more like the Hopkinson than the PA, but without some of the Independence line features.

For a look at the soles on the BB's go back to my post the other day on the Oxblood Dundee's. I prefer the AE version. I would have to double check with one of my AE v-tread pairs, but I'm pretty sure the AE version is more flush with the test of the sole.

I concur.  Those are SWEET.  You might even say, Uber-sweet.

Obliged! The pants are BR Heritage in linen.

Freiburgs and denim today on a possibly rainy casual Friday. These were a great pickup during the flash/X-mas sale.

It's probably a good thing for me that they no longer offer this color.  They have the chili/brown ones still available for dirt cheap $107 in my size, but I'd much rather have the color you have.   

 

I also kind of like the Rothsay's in olive.   I hike a lot and these might be a good choice.  Could justify the purchase by using that excuse.   Something tells me they won't sell out soon since they've been up on shoebank a long time.

When I initially purchased the Freiburg they shipped me the tan version accidentally, which I exchanged for the russet.  Absolutely no regrets - the russet color is killer.  Wore these constantly throughout the winter.  I can't believe they have the price down to 107.  Word of warning though - like all 201-lasted bluchers, these run quite large.  Went with my normal size and they "molded" to the correct shape over time but I need to use medium/heavy socks and initially they ripped up my heels pretty bad.

 

Just to point out - that Rothsay on shoebank isn't the same as the clearance one from the main site.  It's the black Friday model with the soft gumlite - you wouldn't want to hike in that.

I'm surprised more people aren't interested in the Hopkinson and/or Bartlett from this - I feel like I have a pretty good pulse as far as deals go and these seem to be a standout.  250 would be a great price.  Maybe the Park Ave/Strand market is just too saturated already.

So, the Hopkinson has Poron?😕

According to the AE web site it has a leather insole.

The only independence insoles were so nice. I wonder if they still use the same ones.

Since they're still using the lamb skin lining, I'd be surprised if they changed the insole. But they stopped using piping along the throat, so they may well have decided insole was an easy place to boost profits.

Being relative new to the fine shoe game, I have read many posts about shoe care. The various approaches to high shine, removing scratches, caring for shell, etc, are similar to hearing how to make "the world's best chili." Seems everyone has their own secret. So I wanted to echo those who have advocated the minimalist approach to shell care. I laid a nice scratch on the heel yesterday. Nothing fatal, but it was certainly noticeable and could be felt. No creams; no polish. Just several minutes of good brushing and it all just faded away. My affection for shell is deepening.

Got my Malone from the clearence sale earlier last week. I've had sizing issues with Dalton/Strand in the past but the Malone fits like glove. Zero break-in needed.

 

Seems like some factory sheen still on it so I'll wear it down before applying venetian cream. LOVE the fit and comfort. Feels like wearing sneakers!!

 

And my current 'beaters'. The Loakes were the replacement for the Daltons and I highly recommend it. It has dainite sole and after 6 months of heavy wear (in winter as well), it's held up extremely well . And the brogueing/laces are beter than the Daltons.

 

The Indy's....well...it's the Indy's ..throw everything at it and the boots take it all.

What color are your Malones? (Same Q for @smfdoc and whoever else has these) The website pictures are awful, but yours and smfdoc's IRL pics make a impressive difference. Getting a good view of the stitching, reverse welt and soles in your third pic really shows off the casual vibe of this shoe.

Neo1,

So, this one on shoebank isn't good for hiking?  

 

 

RichieP, that Malone is the brown cruiser but it's actually closer to a walnut color and my walnut belt matches it well.
