My wife grabbed a secondhand Lasalle, 4348, for me today. The first I've had on the 8 last. It feels good but the insole has some kind of padding. It's thicker than just leather. I find this model in the 2011 catalog but no mention of a different insole. Also has a vibram heel but an AE sole. Think this went through the AE recraft?

Your wife? Grabbed you a pair of AE’s? Sir, you are married to a very special lady.

As for those, I think they were part of their “comfort line” back in the 2000’s, which is similar to the feather-welt stuff today. IIRC, these had a Texon+poron leather wrapped insole (but not same variation as used in their BB shoes) with squishy synthetic stuff in place of the cork.

The 108 last is one that you either love or hate. Personally I think it’s a great last (it’s basically the old 206 loafer last that’s been “de-combo’ed). The 108 makes those shoes look slick. It appears they reused the Brentwood/Seneca upper pattern.

Hello everyone. I know I am totally overthinking this, but what Saphir color would you recommend for these AE Exchange Place? They have been discontinued, but were listed as just "brown".

Also, never realized how difficult it is to photograph brown shoes! The actual shoes are slightly darker than the photos.

Lastly, will Saphir renovateur affect the color or burnishing? Thanks

Today was the first time back in church in over 1 yr (wore a mask) wearing one favorite pairs of shoes, walnut Strandmonks. Can't believe it has been over 1 yr since I last wore them.
Haven't you gotten vaccinated yet?
