    That's what I'm hoping for.. AE QC somehow let this beautiful pair of boots slip by their fingers, and ended up in an outlet store by mistake. ;)

    Been a hectic couple of weeks for me with a weekend vacation sandwiched between two work trips. Been in AEs every day, just haven't had time to post.
    Today it's Bob's Chili Bleecker Streets. (This is pushing the shoe-pants contrast for my taste, though the pants are much more gray than the white they appear.)

    Seriously? I think you answered your own question here. And I'd be saying this for firsts too.

    I was just getting into AE when the Bleeker Street was out, and I'm sorry I missed those.

    I have a pair of Brown Calf Strands in 8.5 EE which I've realized are a tad too long (I think I need to drop down to 8 EE). It sounds like they may fit you quite well. I think I will sell these at some point so if you are in the market for another pair of strands let me know.

    Seems like somebody here was looking for a golden brown Humboldt belt recently, but they were out. They've added several sizes back as in stock.

    I wear a 10d in the 5 last and pretty much every other shoe i've worn since i was 16 years old, so i went with size 10d. The shoe slipped a little bit when i first wore them, but after the 1st wear they no longer slipped. I've only worn them 2 times since i received them, so the slippage went away fairly quickly for me.

    Hope this helps.

    Picked up some Bourbon 5th Aves yesterday - firsts for 177.00. Total steal on clearance and quite possibly my most comfortable shoe yet.

    Happy Wednesday to everyone. Not a Walnut Wednesday for me this week, instead it's the maiden voyage of my (seconds) McGregor in Burnished Brown with a Dainite sole for $137 from the shoe bank. The eyelets looked awfully misaligned at first but after re-lacing as discussed a few pages back it's not a problem at all. They were also terribly noisy out of the box but some leather conditioner on the tongue quieted that right up. Overall I'm extremely pleased with the "seconds" quality of these. I don't love the burnishing which makes them darker than I typically like, but I plan to not reapply black polish and over time that should wear away and just leave the nice brown leather.

    I usually don't think far enough ahead, but I decided to get in on Walnut Wednesday this week.

    Not exactly Walnut Wednesday, but close with these McTavish in "Brown Distressed." These were a pair of seconds that I almost didn't keep, but they have turned into a favorite that almost always draw compliments when worn.
