    If the model number on the box matches the shoes, I do believe they are shell. Where are @mdubs , @polojock615 , et. al.?

    There is also a pair of Barrie shell Plain Toe Bluchers in 10D that may fit more people. Great pair to get you into shell for less than $200. Check them here.

    Nice! Sub $200 for Alden shell. Must be because piping is trending down. [​IMG]

    I see that there's a spreadsheet out there listing this model number as shell, but there's a thread on askandy and prior ebay listings (one that appears to be for this exact same pair of shoes) saying that this model number is really polished cobbler. I'm still not sure on styleforum's policy on posting links to other sites, but you'll be able to find all of this with a google search for "allen edmonds 9548."

    I'm not saying you are wrong, but if they are cobbler, they did a HELL of a job on the color, and a DISMAL job on the texture. Is it possible that AE reused the model number?

    For the sake of anyone here who's actually size 11AA, I hope you're right. We'll await the wisdom of wiser weasels.

    Mine are shell and are marked 9588. They don't look stock anymore though:

    I have two pairs - one on the newer 1 last, and this old (30 years?) pair on the old 8 last.

    Well, how do they feel? Are those Kirkwoods? While I also prefer a snug, secure fit to my shoes, I'd expect these to appear casual, so the looks of a little extra room wouldn't bother me as long as they felt good.

    I am a 9.5e with a high instep and tried exactly that. They were enormous--even with an added insole and a tongue pad wedged under the tongue, my heel popped out of the navy Sea Island with every step. I love the suede quality, but there is no way I could keep them.
