Disregard the floating shelf. The [expletive deleted] lazy [expletive deleted] who built our house apparently felt the need to triple-up areas of sheetrock for the walls. So the stud finder registered false positives and now i get to replace a whole [expletive deleted] wall.

So that was an entire weekend wasted.

Hey gang, can someone provide insight in sizing for the 42N versus the 201?

I’ve been traveling frequently (around 2 weeks a month) over the last year and am looking for another shoe or two that’s travel friendly. Thus far I’ve been using my Kudu Neumok 2.0 frequently for those trips. I don’t necessarily love the sole, but do like the look of the Nomad Shortwing and PTB. Can anyone speak to the quality of the upper on those shoes? Thanks!

I wish I understood the term relaxed fit. The 42N was built bigger to attempt to accommodate 3mm of padding in the shoes. I find it to be a little tighter than the 201 in same size. I had to resort to waiting for an old McTavish to pop up in the Shoebank because the new McTavish is D and wider only. The padding in the Stirling made the shoe wearable in a D width for me. The Nomad uppers are not as good as similar style uppers in other lines but I feel they are still quite serviceable for a travel shoe.

I can’t help with your question but would suggest the MD chukka for a travel shoe if you like that style.

For everyone who posts, “That shoe/boot is great; AE just needs to change the last to ‘X,” there are some of us thinking “leave it alone; that’s my perfect last!” :)
The 201 for me would fit this example. A lot of men don't like the extra room and some cannot even wear it. For me though, it might be my best last.

@Shoenut When I think of "relaxed fit", I think of the Badlands, Cheetah and anything where it doesn't wrap snuggly around my feet. Or perhaps because the leather is very soft and stretchy, which fits both these models I mentioned.

If my “designer” dressed like that, I’d look for a new designer.
Yeah, I’m with you on this. If you wear ridiculous looking clown shoes, your status as a “designer” is entirely suspect.

Oh hell, I’ve had a few too many and it’s way to hot to be nice. So I’m just gonna burn this muhf_cker down: the dude, complete with his sequined shorts, looks like a retarded attention-whore. Not an SF peacock, not an avant-garde type; just a tacky, clown-shoe wearing moron with absolutely no taste.

Ryan Homes. Nationwide purveyors of cut corners (just not any of them 90*, mind you....seriously ZERO right angles anywhere in this house....EVERYTHING is crooked--just like the builder), code violations, and paid-off building inspectors everywhere hastily-built profiteering occurs.

Okay, maybe my house isn’t that bad after all.
