Respectfully, I agree with the Major on all counts. Those are perfect. To me, a really light welt color on a medium to dark dress shoe draws the eye to the wrong thing.All right forum friends, I present what may be the last delivery from TS 19.2. Chili Shell MacNeils. These had to be remade due to pretty severe issues with the first pair (delivered last December). Thanks to some help from @ae_ashley they are now in my possession.
There is still an error, I had ordered a natural welt and these are antique/brown. Since I will wear mostly with jeans, I like the casual appearance and "pop" of the natural welt. They are beautiful, just not what I ordered. At this point I'm inclined to just wear them as is and move on. Maybe if Alden made my size I'd be more accustomed to year-plus fulfillment on footwear. Thoughts?

might have something to do with social media companies having no advertising standardsThere seems to be a fake AE advertisement that is making rounds on Facebook. They are claiming to sell AE shoes for as low as $23. The lowest price I've ever paid for a shoe direct from AE was $76 (the McTavish I got on clearance). Not sure why FB is allowing it to run.
I've always thought that if a spammer evolved that actually had an attention to detail and a firm grasp of the English language, we'd all be completely screwed. It would be like the SARS-Cov2 of the internet tearing through with no natural immunity.Of course, the first sign that it was not legit is that it reads "Allen Edmond" Shop. Spammers and scammers often forget the fine details.
He's got to find a last that fits well too. The only models the factory stores offer in that size are 405 and 660 (black calf tassel on Aberdeen). I'm not sure Barrie guess past 13.Alden won't make a 14EEE if you add your size to a run? I know they'll do 14Ds at least but wasn't sure if there was some cut-off for wider widths
Correct, it's very odd. It could be an old toe injury from basketball but it doesn't bother me all the time. Only the left foot. Cavanaughs are the only model shoe I own that seems to trigger increased pain in that toe.It would seem that there was a time when the shoe did not pinch that toe? Or am I reading your post incorrectly?
Then a gentle stretch may do the trick. A cobbler can even do a spot stretch around the toe area. For the low cost of stretching, it is worth a shot.Correct, it's very odd.

Couldn’t agree more! Found some on the Bank recently and finally got me a pair for a stupid awesome sale price! It’s 108*-110* outside right now, so pretty much shorts weather and no boots.
