Thanks! Love the McCallisters, by the way, but with my very small rotation they seemed too close to the Strand. Someday!

For my Strands, the bourbon polish is nearly an exact match. They sit next to some walnut Kenilworths in my closet, and the difference is pretty substantial.

Oddenwald for a walk out today...... I really really really hope AE either brings to back or releases new versions of this boot. I still lament not getting the blue nuemok leather with blue suede quarters in before the shitcanned the mto program.

First post after following the old forum for 2 years! I thought it was a good time given the new forum and my first pair of shell.

I got these from eBay last week, burgundy cordovan MacNeil. There's some funny business on the right toe but I'm wearing them every other day to justify a recraft. I also stuck a credit card to puff the toe.

I finally bought a pair of bourbon shoes, and wore them for the first time yesterday. It's funny, because I could never get excited about that color in the store. But when I got mine, I just loved it. From what I've seen on this thread, there is a LOT of variation in the color and shade of "bourbon".
I was trying to decide how I'd describe this color. To me, mine look like they've got an olive tint.

Wore my Surfer Eaters (what I call my Sheltons with no name inside and with shark saddles) today........

Just got these Hanovers as seconds from Shoebank. Very cool design and soft leather similar to indy collection.

I can't disagree with you. I think I've deveoped an aversion to the concept based on some of the pics I've seen here, which may well be a skewed perspective.

Anyone know when they've had the March madness neumok MTO in the past? Paul mentioned it on his AMA so hopefully should be kicking off soon to be in time for the tourney.

Those various Galway's are tempting.  But I would love AE to put out something like the Frieberg, in a Reverse Kudu.  The Normandy's are sooooooo supple.

I've been wondering if the Dundee 2.0 was available in kudu if it be a more forgiving fit. My 13B pair is a bit cramped in the toe, and they don't offer a 14A. I really like the look of the undistressed, grain-out kudu. Heck, just offer everything in kudu.

 

I'd also like them to bring back the Gobi so I can get a properly fitting pair of firsts. And more chukka patterns in general.

The store (MJM) closing where I got my Ridgeways had 3 pairs of what I believe were the Michigan (Wolverines) with boxes. Really dark blue (for a while I though it was black) and yellow.  But that store is gone now.  Those shoes were still around after they had dropped below $50.

@Moose22 Too bad they still haven't straightened out that mess. I buy 1sts and 2nds from Ben and so far haven't had a problem, knock on wood.

I missed out on the Rutledge when I waited too long. Even saw them at bcf for 139 (not my size). But hey, the shell Adams I picked up for 127 was a good consolation prize.😉

I love the Rutledges that I picked up from the shoe bank a month or so ago. Where did you find shell for that price? Forgive me, I don't know all the acronyms yet.
