    On the oxblood strands it would just depend on if you can live with them and how good the deal was. I love mine.

    Thanks @naspratt ! I'll be sure to report back in a few months (i.e. after a handful of wears). This has been the most comfortable first wear of any pair of AEs - even more so than my LBs.

    For those of if you with neumoks,

    Do you get full closure on the lacing? I got the same size as my McAllisters, the McAllisters are about a finger width apart out of the box. The neumoks are a very wide V. Does going up a width address lace closure? My size is 9E, so I'd have to go to a 9EEE in the neumok

    Damn. Just when I think I'm ready to make the jump, he pulls me back in. Shell web gems could be dangerous for my wallet. And I've been wanting a chili Shaker since it got discontinued.

    My olive shannon drive arrived a day early. Very interesting color. Almost more of a brown/grayou. I like it. And WOW, it is comfortable first second it was put on. It might already be my most comfortable AE shoes. Maybe partially to do with the sole.

    EDIT: I just noticed this shoe uses the 201 last and most of my others are 65 last. I am guessing my foot likes this last alot more.

    I have owned two pairs of Neumok (sold one) and mine were similar with a v lacing that got much wider toward top. They do that more than my other AEs.

    Wow those look great! Might pull the trigger on those.

    I've never tried on a 201 last before (and it's not even described on their site). What size are you in 65 last?

    Hi, my name is Rich, I like golf and ice cream, and I'm addicted to shoes. Say hello to the two newest members of the family, Grayson and MacNeil 2.0. Both joining in brown as I may be addicted to oxblood too and need an intervention.

    On 65 last I think 9.5E or 10D are best for me. The shannon drive on 201 last are 10D, but I am thinking now I could wear a 9.5D on the 201, it feels a little long but SUPER comfortable. The spongy sole I think is helping with comfort to a little bit, but I think it has more to do with the last. Maybe these shoes just fit me right and on the 65 last fitment for me is a tiny bit short in 9.5E and a tiny bit narrow in 10D.
