Btw, does it seem to anyone else that these blue shoes got turned around incredibly quickly? And with seemingly excellent results from what I've seen.

If this is the maiden run for AE's revamped MTO program, then I'm impressed.

 

You think this will be representative of the MTO program? Im curious if anything aside from standard width has been shipped. I'm not sure how much I'd stray from what is typically offered on their current models. Maybe natural edge rather than the black edge but I haven't found myself wanting much else though I know others have. My biggest request is not something they will do unless I order shell which is still not something I want to dive into yet. I'd like a burgundy shell cornwallis someday though.

The Fulton looks fairly similar to the current model, the Badlands Comfort shoe ... http://www.allenedmonds.com/shoes/mens-shoes/casual-shoes/badlands-comfort-shoes/SF1005.html (though it's more of a whole cut style).

Anyone have any experience with the Badlands? I was thinking about getting a brown casual shoe.

I've considered them before.  It's one of the most universally loved shoes they have, but be aware that the color is a bit more orange than the website indicates.  It's a very comfortable shoe, but the othello sole is a little soft for my tastes.

I don't recall the differences between the Badlands and the Black Hills but they are quite similar.  I have the latter in walnut and it is a great general purpose casual shoe. 

post #6817 of 19327

I think the only real difference is the sole. Black Hills has a better Toby mini-lug rubber sole vs. the Badlands which has a softer Othello.

Someone actually asked AE customer service this exact question. This was the answer:

 

"While the Badlands and the Black Hills are similar in style and fit, since they are both constructed on the same 5-Last (65), they each have a couple of unique characteristics. The Badlands is constructed using Outland leather which has a waxy finish, and contrast stitching. It also features our Othello rubber sole which is a softer lug sole that provides more shock absorption. The Black Hills style is constructed using Dublin Leather which has a burnished-like finish and it features the Toby mini-lug rubber sole which has the strength of a hiking sole with less heft."

I received an e-mail saying mine have shipped and will arrive Monday.  My order was placed just after midnight CT May 22.

Bone Snuff Suede Maritimes and Golden Brown Kirkwoods have shipped and should arrive tomorrow.  Finally breaking into the summer time footwear!

Hmmmm - I have a pair of Black Hills and they do have  mini-lug sole. They are made with waxy leather, though.

I really like the mini-lug and it certainly gives off less of an "old man" vibe than the Othello.

Ha, I rarely post fashion shots on my social media, although I should probably be doing more.  I usually only talk about shoes with you fine gents or the select few guys I know that wear quality footware.  #DYEWB?

The biggest difference for me between the two shoes is the leather. The Badlands leather is "fancier" and will accept polish for scuffs, etc. The saddlehorn leather in the Fulton feels thicker, does not accept polish and is more "rugged" in feel and appearance. As I previously mentioned, its like a broken in baseball glove or saddle.

I hope your right about he MTO program, then again they weren't reinventing the wheel Strand.  I'm hoping that as the MTO matures they may consider a GMTO from SF in something a little more  outside the box. God! I hate that expression.
