    @Shazb0t once the shoes break in, the heel slippage will go away. I recommend getting the 8.5E over the 8.5D

    @ace13x Yeah that's bs about the independence line being the sole source of 201 balmorals. Don't forget those Harry Rosen things on shoebank - bloor st, Richmond st, etc, can't remember which is which.

    Can someone who has the cognac mct tell me how dark they are approximately? I've seem crazy variation on these - I'm considering picking up a pair if they look more like the pics online. Super dark brown wouldn't get much use in my wardrobe, plus I already have two mct already. Thanks in advance.

    The finish on my Bourbon Larchmont seconds turned out not so bad. Think I should press my luck with some Bourbon Mora 2s?

    Wearing my long branches today, bought these off ebay. They were originally golden brown and are CXL, with some serious finish issues. I decided to dye them navy.

    Mora Monday. Confession time too, I love cardigans. I would wear one daily if I found the right fabrics. Also, don't mind Tiger in the background...

    Oxblood McGregors maiden voyage.

    Squeaky as hell though. I sound like a duck walking around the office today.

    Rain expected Mon-Fri, so these LBs might make multiple appearances this seems.

    So then it's normal to have some up and down movement in the heel for these?

    I wouldn't say that it's normal or ideal, but not every foot is going to fit every last. The heel slip should dissipate some as the sole loosens up. If it doesn't, you might have to wear thicker socks or think about adding a heel grip or something to dial in the fit.

    As I understand it, you're not choosing between cork or poron. You're choosing between leather or poron, but the cork is there regardless.

    Those look great. Did you dye them yourself or use a cobbler?

    Hello gentlemen,

    New member here and I wanted to ask for your help. I recently learned about AE and am in desperate search of tan or cognac mctavish in size 10.5 or even 10. I hope I'm not too late but does anyone have any they are willing to sell?

    Edit: my connection at the public library is giving me fits. Sorry for the original misquote @SLCRich .
