    I don't know. They aren't my boots. I was just trying to answer the question.

    Anyone know what color these are? Description on ebay said "brown" bit they seem lighter than the average brown Allen Edmonds shoes. Or maybe it's just the light in the pic.

    If the ad shows the size, we can look up the style number and see what color is listed.

    For those of you who inhabit this great city of New York, where do you go when you need your heels replaced? Thanks in advance.

    Anyone have recommendations for fighting blucher squeaks? I've dug around the forum and read that putting talcum powder where the leather of the flaps and the tongue rub helps, but that seems ridiculous to do every single time I wear my shoes.

    I've worn my Delrays 4-5 times now and polished/conditioned them after their first wear hoping the squeaking would subside, but no such luck. Maybe it'll ease up after they're further broken in? I hate squeaky shoes, it makes them sound cheap IMO and is a little embarrassing in the office, but I love every other thing about these shoes.

    Sometimes wearing different socks or tying your laces differently can help. Sometimes loosening up the laces so they are less tight can help. I find my Lasalles do squeak on occasion, but I can usually get rid of it by adjusting the laces. I'd give them more time - the squeaking could go away after you wear them longer.

    What do you guys think of this fit in the strands size 7.5 D? The V gap seems pretty wide. My feet measures around 8 - 8.5 D on brannock device. I returned them and ordered a 7.5 E. Would that be a better option? Thanks![​IMG]

    They're small, its more like a U-Gap. 7.5E may be OK if the footbed settles enough, but I would try 8D or possibly 8E. I'm 8.5D/E Brannock and I wear 8E.

    Also when you get the 7.5E try European bar lacing. I find I get better tension on the eye-stays with that method.

    Posing a (semi)hypothetical...

    If the price were the same, would you have a brown shell...

    Strand or C&J for BB (under the brand Peal & Co.) wingtip?

    Both lovely, both fit a similar niche (for me anyway... likely to wear both with chinos/flannels and occasionally with denim), both similarly colored, both similarly priced... is it as simple as taking the one that's normally ~40% more expensive?

    TIA!

    Looks like Allen Edmonds just released 7 new models. What do you guys think about them?

    Cordovan has a very tight grain structure. It's not nearly as porous as calf or suede, so it doesn't breathe nearly as well, and insulates better. That's why it's generally preferred in cooler months.

    Innaugural run of the new Verona II's today. Wearing these with a suit, I kind of feel like I'm on 1980's Wall Street- and I'm pretty okay with that:

    Super, super comfortable too

    The suede Acheson looks pretty slick. Will have to add it to the potential suede acquisitions list, behind a snuff barrie PTB.
