    Allen Edmonds Appreciation Thread 2019 - News, Pictures, Clothing, Accessories, etc.

    Our May Long is looking to be typically shitty boot weather. Might as well get a head start.

    I really should wear these more often. Maybe not with dark blue jeans though.

    Can’t be on a boardwalk, so I guess I’ll settle for being in some.

    Everyone’s glorious shell models are giving these calf Macs an inferiority complex. Maybe it’s the silly laces...

    I’m fairly certain Saphir products contain no silicone.

    Vintage Dress shoe appreciation, tips, maintenance and advice

    @Shoonoob Have you ever needed to ‘topcoat’ your dyes? I did use some resolene on some belts I did, but these shoes have nothing on them. So far no wear issues regarding the dye, but I haven’t been caught in the rain yet. FWIW, these were unfinished crust. And do you use regular Fiebing dye, or...

    Boots Boots Boots - For Boot Guys Only

    Snow is just water, and there's no salt out in the park. These dainite soles and grained leathers have seen worse. When it snows >8 months, I have little use for boots that can't be boots :)

    Give denatured alcohol (shellac/lacquer thinner) a try? You may have to really soak the leather and wipe a lot, but in my experience it pulls up dye well.

    Herring (by Cheaney) Langdale. Spring snow, walking the dog, fighting off a sure hangover, and Tom Waits. Moral of the story? Love those you have while you have them, otherwise you end up walking in a snow storm in the early morning...in style. Good night friends.

    NPS Heath. I thought I’d do a quick blurb, because there really isn’t much in the way of info on these guys. 002 Last - 8UK. Footbed size pretty true. I take a 9D in most AE, 8 in Cheaney 175, Barker 460 for comparison. Be warned, the volume up the throat is ridiculously large. I do not...

    Hating my wardrobe lately. Time for some serious investment in jeans, but I have a hell of a time finding stuff I like. This pair has shrunk and turned awfully ugly in the wash. Good thing these PromPoints are on point.

    Not sure if this should maybe be a ‘makers’ question? Thoughts on sealant after dyeing leather? Many leatherworkers suggest Resolene (or other acrylic based products), but it seems to me this would essentially be like adding a clear coat, and seal the pores of the leather? Do you guys recommend...

    Vintage Dress shoe appreciation, tips, maintenance and advice

    If I may suggest, before you deal with dye. Saphir creams have a fairly strong pigment, and a little bit of black might be more than enough to blend that little spot? I believe Neatsfoot is explicitly recommended by Horween for their CXL? As with every other oil, a little too much is very...
