I hooked up with the legendary Kristle at the Jeffersonville, Ohio outlet (the precursor to St. Ashley of Charleston). Kristle notified me of an upcoming 2 for $299 sale. I studied and researched the list. Here's what I ended up with for $149.50 a pair...

Kristle really helped me by pointing out the great deals in my size. There are shell and Independence Line shoes in the mix. I didn't know what that meant, but I listened to Kristle's advice.

The good old days...

Kristle, the O.G.

We're gaining on the All-den Thread! Some Trunk Show speculation and innuendo should put us over the edge.

So, is it true that they're bringing back natural, walnut, truffle and cappuccino shell??
And the Macneil, Dundee, Bayfield and Bradley in shell???
And Football Grain too??!?!?

WOW. If this is true, it's time to back up the truck and do some deficit spending.

That was the end of that Long Branch design, unfortunately. In my opinion, the color and leather were better, plus the leather midsole and Vibram rubber sole were superior to the replacement. I bought more but could not find the originals again...

Today I'm wearing walnut calf McAllisters, the very first Allen Edmonds' footwear I owned. They were full retail, mostly because I needed them in a hurry and didn't know about sales or the Shoe Bank. I later learned about the Shoe Bank from SF. In those days, the Shoe Bank was not online. You had to call or email an outlet store and request a list of what was in stock. The list was hit or miss since it was not updated in real time. And, it was somewhat cryptic as it was model numbers and not model names. To see a photo, you had to either visit the AE website or google the model number. The list also contained AE-made shoes for / branded Brooks Brothers, Ralph Lauren and others. Those model numbers were even harder to decipher, but they sold them cheap!

Anyway, my second purchase from AE was a score! Following the recommendations of the SF brethren, I hooked up with the legendary Kristle at the Jeffersonville, Ohio outlet (the precursor to St. Ashley of Charleston). Kristle notified me of an upcoming 2 for $299 sale. I studied and researched the list. Here's what I ended up with for $149.50 a pair...

I remember her. Ordered my Rothsay boots and Clark Street from her. Clark Streets ended up being a bad pair, but it wasn't her fault (it was the last pair they had). People criticize me for living the past too much, but that's how I am.
Judging by how the present and future are shaping up I’d say the past isn’t too bad of a place to be.

The originals were great. The new replacement pleather LB's completely suck dog shit.
