    Pics look even better than the AE stock photos. 1/2 off has me seriously considering.
    I love me an AE boot! And I guess most of mine are technically NOT plain toe (Daltons, LBs, Normandy MTO'd with lug sole, 1st Ave in Walnut and Brown grain with Dainite, Portland, 5th Street, Shakers, Bleeckers)... and the ones that are (Amok, Gobi, Frieburg) are all different enough to justify it. Right? Right, filthy barn weasels?

    Curiously, there are a few pairs of Cornwallis in dark chili on the shoebank. I had just been thinking that a dark chili Cornwallis would be perfect.

    If it was just one, I'd assume it was a MTO gone wrong. Maybe they're starting to make them in chili?

    Thanks. This has pretty much convinced me never to buy AE's on Amazon again.

    In my experience 11D on the 201 is basically equivalent to 11E on the 65. Comparing these two:
    - toe box is similar
    - heel a bit wider on the 65
    - overall volume a bit higher on the 201

    For me, I'd go down a width from your 65. Going down a half size could also work, though.

    Ha... maybe I am an oddball. I like split toes. Not a big fan of mocs though.

    I've seen some pop up on the Shoebank and likewise thought they were gone before.

    Perhaps one of you knows the answer to this: while reading saddle shoe reviews on the AE site, someone mentioned "Bobby socks." Well, I thought girls wore those and a quick google image search confirmed that. And sure enough, in many vintage photos, the young ladies were wearing black and white saddle shoes as well.

    So, how exactly did saddle shoes transform from 1950's high school girl fashion to something men are wearing from AE? :crazy:

    I'd go for Red Wing Beckman over AE Sturgis, if I was you. They frequently go for ~$150 on the bay.

    Agreed. I dig Red Wing boots and shoes. I have 3 sets of Red Wing boots and another on the way. One Red Wing oxford. The Red Wings are my durable outdoor work and inclement weather options. AE shoes are my good weather options.

    All,

    Does navy suede Cavanaugh come with brown or black sole edges? The pictures show brown, but for some reason I remember someone on this forum mentioned a while back that they were black.

    @Neo1 , would you say that length on the 114 is the same as 606?

    Thanks everyone in advance!

    I'm with you 100%. I sometimes visit construction sites for work, and Red Wing boots are my only choice on those days. I don't have any RW shoes, but I'll be thinking about them now.

    I wore various combos of the saddle style several times during my 20's and 30's, though admittedly not AE. I'd love to have a pair of those maroon ones now, but they don't have my size. I still might spring for the walnut. Either pair is perfect for jeans.
