    Try Harry Rosen, theirs are on the 201 if I'm not mistaken. They changed the names of the "street" shoes to what I believe are famous streets in Canada, but they're the same styles just on the 201 instead of the 65.

    I think someone on the forum has a HR pair.

    @JSO1 I just found out James P & Victoria both left the company(!) What happened there? Can you shoot me a pm - would appreciate it. That's quite a loss.

    If I didn't already have a pair of bourbon McAllisters and Strands I would be ordering a pair. I'm not sure how profound the difference is, but I'm tempted just so I can see the difference.

    Does anyone know if the bourbon is a limited run or will it be around for a while?

    This is another one I've been thinking of. This one comes down to how bad my refinish project goes lol. Nice pics on the McAllister. Definitely a bit darker than my pair; mine is way more on the walnut side. Maybe if I can still find a pair after the holidays I'll bite.

    Fyi, a couple pairs of shell daltons ending soon on the bay from that well known seller. Priced on the high side, but could be a decent cop for the right best offer...

    I wish they don't seem to have these in 9E so I miss out. I'd really like a pair of chili grain macneils. BB has their AEs on sale right now for 258 or something and its pretty tempting.

    @TexasTexter I was looking to snag the pair of bourbons on shoebank in my size but SA said they look basically like walnut McAllisters. If I didnt have walnut in that pattern already covered I'd have bought them at the price. It appears I will be pulling the trigger on some firsts before they go away again.

    Wondering if you guys add a heel taps on your AE to prolong the life of the heel?

    If you can deal with it you should. Cheaper than paying $30 - $40 to replace the heel evey now and then.

    I know they are good for your soles, but I can't stand the feeling of them. They also make the shoes look uglier in my opinion.

    Agreed. It looks like they are doing a better job of not using too much of that green color. I bet those look awesome in the sun.
