Allen Edmonds Appreciation Thread 2016 - News, Pictures, Sizing, Accessories, Clothing, etc - Page 630

I received some Dalton's from Dabondo1. They were marked as seconds and have minimal wear. The reason they were marked as seconds is because they have some folding in the middle of the heel. It's hard to tell from looking at, but you can feel it in the boot. From an aesthetic point of view this fine to me given what I paid. Aesthetically I am quite happy. My concern is, is this a structural defect and not just an aesthetic one?

Here is a photo:

These look great! I love my brown Oak Streets, and seeing the natural ones is making me want a pair of those too.

Thank you sir.  I really need to wear these more and with the 3 a day mentality, they'd probably be seen at least every 3rd day.  They fit me really well and are already super comfortable.

The Rogue.
This shoe baffles me. It was introduced last year in three colors. I love the design, and purchased a pair in chili. They have since discontinued the walnut and black versions of this shoe. What???
Is there a plan for this shoe to continue? How long can it live when it's only available in one color?
Perhaps there is a navy Rogue headed our direction. That would be a great-looking shoe!

I didn't think the black or walnut were especially attractive, but the chili looks great IMHO. I agree totally that a navy (one that is discernibly blue) would be really cool.

Of course!  I actually plan which shoes I will wear the next day in the evening.  I then think of which slacks and shirt I need to find.  Some colors are a bit difficult to match, but then some color like merlot will go with anything.   I try to give my shoes equal rotation, but there's definitely players that get less minutes.

Did someone say blue?  Bring it on!  I have the black, walnut and chili Rogue.  Would love to add the 4th to the family!

Either $110 or $125. I've heard both quoted in person. I'll find out when I place my order...

Not a bad idea, but I just got a shell plain toe boot from those who must not be named.  :hide:

Honestly, I thought this was normal.

My foot grew a full size, so it was the perfect opportunity to redo my shoe collection. I had only owned one pair of Allen Edmonds before, the Carlyle. I ALWAYS received complements on them wherever I went. It never occurred to me, that out of all the shoes in my footwear lineup, the Carlyle was the only pair that consistently garnered attention. This attention can sometimes be the sign of a BAD pair of shoes or garment - the clothes should draw attention to the wearer, right? If clothes draw attention to themselves, this seems to be the very definition of garish - dare I say... douchey - style. In the case of the Carlyle, people tended to complement the shoes and ask what I did for a living, talk about style, etc. As opposed to "Hey, um..... nice fuchsia socks. They really match your gold plated Dolce & Gabbana belt buckle."

 

I purchased the Carlyle, Parke Ave, and the Strand - yes all at once. Nordstrom is having that anniversary sale and AE's are discounted by more than 100 dollars. Couldn't pass it up!

 

Allen Edmonds are truly wonderful shoes. They are understated without being boring, attractive without being loud, luxurious but not obnoxious.

 

And your level of bad-assity does notably increase knowing you have the same footwear as Reagan... (That is sure to garner some hate mail! lol).
