    @harlequin782 So I checked my closet and you're absolutely right, the rush had a regular welt. I remember when I got it and the neumok - with the neumok being unlined I just wear it way more often since it is one of the rare 65s that actually works really well for me. Rush at is more like normal - pressure at the top, vgap, etc. You know how you know you're in trouble? When you wear dress shoes 5-6 days a week and you wear casual styles so infrequently you don't even remember what they look like. Would you believe I recently saw that I had a Shelton and I literally didn't even know I owned that?

    Yeah but if he makes his girlfriend mad enough, that may be the only body part that is. :rimshot:

    You filthy barnweasel! When did you do that? Thought you were still undecided.

    I saw a walnut pair pop up on the bank in my size last week. Was soooo tempted. Thankfully, someone snagged them this week.

    I wonder where they're coming from.

    Everyone knows seconds are marked with the shoe burned into the sole. How so they mark seconds in Dainite or a non-leather sole?

    Parkway today. I don't see these get a lot of play here. These are the most comfortable AE shoes I own but as you can see by where they crease, these are probably a little too long and maybe a little too wide. TTS I'm 8E and wear that on most lasts except 7.5EE on the 65. These are 7.5E. Does the crease location look silly?

    Lol..no worries man..it sounds like you definitely have an embarrassment of riches among us AE faithful. That rush street really is a fine shoe, and I imagine it would look great with a buttondown and a sportcoat. But even with my meager 9 shoe lineup that I currently have, I already rarely wear my AE's because when I do, I consistantly feel overdressed compared to all around me...albeit in a good way, of course...so thats why I just wanted something with a more firmly casual identity that can be dressed down as much as possible, without looking like the Voyager.


    But yeah, the shelton is that saddle style right?...always liked that shoe. You should consider yourself lucky that you have that gem in your arsenal.

    I decided to take a pic of my regular shoe rotation (the other members doing so inspired me - these are my favorite pics in the thread because you see various styles/colors side by side - very helpful). Not all AE, but AE is most numerous with another on the way. I wish I had as many AE as some of the other posters, but seeing these all in one pic makes me appreciate my stable.

    How do you find the fit on these? Particularly compared to the Dalton (if you own a pair)? I have both the Dalton and the Sauk Dr. in 8D. Even though side by side they are the same length, VISUALLY the Sauk looks longer. FYI the Sauk is on the 201 like the First Ave. I suppose its because of wingtip being shorter (on the Sauk vs the Dalton) and the tip of the boot slightly narrower (even though according to AE its wider) but was wondering what you thought.

    Fit wise I find the length and width of the First Ave and Dalton (both 8E) similar enough to not notice any real difference. The Dalton was much less forgiving in the instep area at first. When I put them on and walked around for the first time, I found them tight on the top of my foot and I was ready to send them back. I called to get a return label but after a short conversion with a Dalton lover, I was convinced to give them a chance to break in. I'm glad I did, the area has stretched and they are now quite comfortable. The First Aves fit perfectly for me right out of the box, I find that they fit similarly to the Rogue but with slightly less of a toebox area.

    Hope this helps, I'll take a look at the actual lengths tomorrow and do a comparison.
