    As you suggest, whether that product is good for the shoes in the long term is one thing - but the shine on those looks absolutely stunning.

    Thanks to @gatszu for selling me his spares of these awesome shell make-ups!

    Wore the Dundees for "Natty Satty" yesterday, and today I brushed/conditioned the Bayfields for their upcoming wear.

    I've never tried Woodlore trees, so would appreciate some sizing advice. I am a 9.5 E, and 9.5 is listed both as the upper end of medium and the start of large...which would be a better fit for shell Parks and Independence Jeffersons 2.0?

    Btw, I have two pairs of Med woodlore ultimate trees from the last drop. Completely unused. They were too small.

    I'll let them go for the same price as the drop, free shipping. If anyone wants...

    Selling a couple pair of AE's that have been worn less than 10 times, as can be seen from the soles. First quality. Just shoes Im not wearing. The McKinley is a 11.5D in Golden Brown that I paid about $75.00 and the Duke is an 11D that went for about $117.

    I am not sure about the sizes. The site says they run small.

    Absolutely! Caramel swirl on a square of mint chocolate cake. It was a perfect day in the 70's yesterday.

    Personally, I don't want a lot of tension in my shoes. I think the people who are saying they run small aren't realizing that is the intended design and proper function.

    I'm a 11.5/12 and my Epics are XL's - they aren't huge in the shoes - they don't put a lot of pressure at the heel and fill the vamp/toe very well.

    @farkle Wow, those both look amazing!


    Thank you. I do not wish to compromise these shoes in the long term, so I will not be revisiting the Parade Gloss until right before the event. Hopefully two specific instances of PG use will not compromise the leather too badly.


    Thank you as well.

    After a bit more brushing and finishing with a buffing cloth, I brought the shoes outside to inspect them in the sun. They look good for a trial run and I again thank the fine participants of this thread for their invaluable advice. I also shot them next to the only instance of black shell that I own to see the difference in lustre, which seemed minimal.

    I will be researching the best way to further gloss these out before the event. A military friend suggested I run a lighter over the shoes to heat the wax, and I'll research this procedure but likely do the best I can without adding fire. :rotflmao:

    Have a great evening, all!

    Why are you returning the black rogues? In a BC environment black rogues work with a suit or with slacks and tie. IJS .....

    Those pictures remind me why I love the black park ave. It is neither flashy nor attention-seeking, and makes no apology for it. That understated elegance makes it, for me, the quintessential American dress shoe. I think I'm gonna wear mine tomorrow.

    I may end up keeping them. For the 180 I paid there's nothing close for a black less formal shoe. I just don't know how often I'll wear them as I prefer to wear brown most days and with jeans as well.

    That is a good point M365. We are not trying to stretch our shoes, just help them maintain their shape

    Did I never notice, or did AE just raise all $385 shoes to $395?
