    Yes, I would say it looked just like that.

    Yea. I guess I should have asked her to explain further, but since I decided against the Dainite I didn't want to waste her time. What she said was:
    "putting a rubber sole on will cause us to have to put a heel pad with a leather sock liner in the insole"
    I think the key wording here is "heel pad".

    Brown/brown grain Hamptons. Wish they were lighter in color, any recommendations as to how I can achieve this?

    I suspect is is an issue of protecting your heel from nails then.

    I think the sock liner in the Patriot looks a lot nicer than the one pictured in the Suede Strand above. The one in the Patriot looks much more refined, in my opinion.

    Hi Fellas! This is a PSA for some Allen Edmonds Belts at Sierra Trading Post.

    They end up being $23.37/ea! Limited Sizes

    You do have to have their Key Code from today: EB091013B

    If you download their app for your phone they'll treat you to Free Shipping.

    Great deal. $35 shipping to Canada completely negates it, however.

    Thank you. Just a heads up, there is no belts in a 34. Also, as above, shipping to Canada is insane.

    Just made my first (two) Allen Edmonds orders! Needed a versatile pair of dress shoes but something casual enough to wear with denim and was lucky enough to pick up the Townley's in brown cordovan in my size for $299. It was my first time looking at the list in my size and saw the Ralph Lauren Saunders in snuff suede (I've been eyeing a suede chukka for a few months now) and after a call back this morning, Jeffersonville found a pair in their store and honored the 50% off price from a week ago!

    These are my first two pairs of real premium quality shoes (other than my 1Ks) so I better run far, far away from this thread before I go bankrupt ;)

    Will have to pick up a pair of Delrays during the sale them, good price. Is there only specific colors that apply to the selected 13 models on discount?

    I started with 1 pair in June and just hit 7 pairs last week, so you're right, either run or forfeit all control right now.

    I picked up the suede Saunders during the sale along with the tan version (my first boots ever) and while I have not worn them yet, I'm very happy with them. Huge discount off the very (unnecessarily) high original price. The suede pair had some black color in a few spots on 1 boot, but I haven't attempted to clean/brush it off just yet. I bought the same size as my 5 last shoes and that worked out well.

    FYI your cobbler can take a 44 belt and cut it down from a 44 to whatever size you need.

    True. I didn't think of that. DUH! Thanks, Tampa. Wonder what that would cost and if it would be worth it for the bottom line?

    Those are very nice. The Strand is definitely my favorite AE design. Enjoy!

    Them folks at AE certainly know how to make themselves money! I'm so glad I'm a starving college student, I couldn't get sucked into the shell trap even if I wanted to.

    I'm holding out for my brown fifth streets.

    Thanks for the PSA. Just jumped on the Bombay, great deal. Wish there was chili in my size.

    Are the products sold on this site delivered in factory packaging?

    Didn't you do a MTO pair of shell Delrays in the past year?

    The heel on my Danite soled Malverns fell off last winter. There were nails protruding that had been driven through the insole into the heel.
