    Bourbon Daltons for casual Fri. Picked these up during 2nds boot sale for $200. These are my first pair of boots and first purchase of 2nds. Extremely pleased with both. I was worried that boots would be uncomfortable, but just the opposite is true. These feel amazing, and they're much more versatile than I thought they'd be. Happy Friday, gentlemen!

    I tried em on and have been thinking about them for a while. I think I'm going to buy them right before school starts in September.

    They are awesome, IMO. The leather is super soft, they are super comfortable since they are unlined. They have a rubber half sole so they won't slip. I don't like the brown or tan that much, and the navy is too light for my tastes, but there are some pics on this forum that show a navy that is well conditioned, and they look great.

    They do look casual, which is a plus for me, but as always, YMMV

    I just dropped your seconds in the mail to some lucky chap. Seriously, one of the best MTO shoes I have seen. When my wife saw them the first thing she asked was if they were in my size. Well done!

    If those weren't yours they were pretty close to being identical to your makeup.

    I recently picked up some Chocolate Daltons and I had a similar experience to yours. My first boot (except ankle boots). I was concerned about comfort but was surprised how comfortable they were - all I had to do was tighten the laces throughout the first day as they broke in.

    I really like the Bourbon on your boots. I got a deal at 1/2 off on 1st quality, so I decided I could live with the Chocolate. Either way, the Dalton is very versatile.

    Thank you. 1/2 off on 1st quality is an amazing deal! How'd you swing that? I would've pounced on that offer as well.

    I don't think you're settling at all with the Chocolate. That is a great color. If I get another Dalton, it'll be that color. I'm waiting for brown Dundees to be delivered though, and the color may be too close to matching to justify another purchase.

    My local menswear / shoe store only carries AE boots in the Fall / Winter. About a month ago, they had 2 Cholcolate Daltons left and one was in my size. Since I buy most of my clothes and shoes there, they sometimes throw me a bone. They said they would do 1/2 price on the Dalton in my size. I couldn't pass that deal up.

    ^^^ That's awesome. I love to hear stories of businesses taking care of their best customers. Sounds like a win-win: they unloaded inventory and you got a smokin' deal on some fantastic boots. Hope you post some pics.

    Switched out my stock brown laces for a fatter blue lace for casual Friday; seems like a good time for a 'Rock Your Socks' cross post, too!

    Those are very VERY nice. From the laces to the chili-colored edge, the details make that boot quite stunning. Thanks for sharing.

    Apologies if this has been discussed already, but I just got back from my local store and the sales rep told me that starting 4/11 AE is having a sale. It looked like the list of styles was two pages long, so it's apparently going to be a fairly broad sale. I know for a fact that McAllister in all colors will be $259 and the Clark Streets will be $249. I didn't ask about anything else, I figure we'll find out soon enough, but that's good news.

    Thoughts on the original Mora vs Mora 2.0?
