    Bourbon works nicely with the McAllister. The shootings earlier this week is equally disgusting, esp in Tulsa.

    Last time the Strands sold like Pink Floyd concert tickets because they were only $275. This time being $395, it makes me wonder if they will last a lot longer. But will they last all the way until October 7th? People have been talking about buying the navy on shoebank, but I'm yet to see a pair on there in navy.

    According to a shoebank SA they saw VERY few seconds from the limited offering. If I recall it was its own separate shoe rather than being included in the available colors. I don't think this is intended to be a limited run as it was before. It may not be a long term color depending on how well it does but it does seem like it is intentionally being added to the color lineup to stay at least beyond a limited offering.

    I hope you're right. If the PA's drop to 245 - 275, I'll have no choice but to buy.

    I have also been looking for Strands for myself on shoebank for a while - no love. I did score some here from the B&S forum and I am happy. But I would still be waiting on shoebank 2nds if hadn't.

    Brief Public Service Announcement: Just because you see a sale Addison Walnut in stock in your size at 5am DO NOT assume that you can buy if for $49 after work later that day. Don't ask me how I know this.

    When I get back home I have some Walnut Shell Daltons to show off. IOU pics.

    Nordstrom Rack score! They rarely have anything in my size. Today: The Harrison for $219. Seem to be first quality. Figured I'd pick them up, since they fit my high instep better than the 5 last, and I have no black cap toe bals.

    Major score indeed. I have been searching various NR's because I know some of these are still in the wild. Congrats!

    Nice! I actually plan on passing by my local Rack today. Hope I find something interesting in my size.

    There were several pair of Kenilworths, some Madison Ave, a Kirkwood, and a beat up pair of Fairfax at the MOA store.

    try this guy inside the credit Suisse blding on the SE corner of Park and 25th. For 6 bucks he'll put tip and heel protectors/taps in your choice of black or clear. He hasn't penetrated my insoles yet! Eli is his name.

    All of my shoes got a rest because I never made it out of the house today. But, on the bright side, I got to spend nine hours on a conference call. Damn, it feels good to be in IT.

    It's Miller time! Ha, just kidding. Yuck.

    That sounds like me on some days. But then I get a craving and have to go out of the house and end up dressing nice just to wear some nice shoes! 9 hours, though, that would be almost 3x my longest!

    I thought this was a damn good summary - absolutely hit the nail on the head regarding the gray imo. I was probably a little more extreme - I didn't like it enough even on the casual denim stuff like the black hills. I had a 1st quality pair that was I believe 127 (maybe even less, can't remember now). Just couldn't get past the fact that it looked like a washed out black. Like it needed less consistency, more texture or something. Gladly paid more for the walnut. With more formal dressy stuff like the park ave, now way. I actually tried the old gray park ave. Definitely a faded black look to it. Maybe the gray styles will do better this time around.

    The navy stuff is far better. The blue neumok....sort of torn. Passed on it easily when it was brand new - it's a denim shoe (I ain't wearing no shorts) and it's just hard pairing dark antiquated blue with blue. They are getting pretty cheap though.

    How about the Park Ave in gray? I don't see that option. Do you have anything to say about that?

    Me too. I wear a suit as well and I like to be able to wear shoes that work with the suit and tie. The gray to me is nice, refreshing and different. I don't own a pair of gray shoes except for the saddle Pierponts but they have gray and navy saddle. I am looking forward to adding something gray to the collection. The question is which one?

    Did not care at all for the PA in Gray. Looked like faded black or old shoes. The Neumok 2.0 was too green for me. We shall see...[​IMG]

    I think everyone should get the Midnight Blue, BUT be warned it is almost black in certain light. Don't be expecting Navy as it's not that. It's between black and Deep Navy blue. You can see it best in the contrast in my pic below. The first one is a Strand Midnight Blue, then in the Middle is the Cornwallis Midnight blue. They are often mistaken for black so I added blue laces which helps.
