My shoe Brother,
This is becoming a pattern...
My Daddy believed that every damn life lesson required an ass-whooping (to help remember).
Ironing my clothes was one of those lessons...
2 mins in the dryer with a spritz of water does the trick for old Vincent here...

Hello all,

I think this post is more than appropriate for Wingtip Wednesday:

I wanted to give a quick reminder that our current Limited Drop is now available to order on the Web! Your local store associates are more than happy to help you as well, whether it be in person or over the phone.

Please keep in mind we are crafting unlimited pairs until June 1st.

Did you already snag a pair? Or maybe 2? Let me know down below!

Also…there are a few different side shots on the web that really showcase the McAllister Oxford and Sneakers beautifully:

Purchased chili within moments of drop! Very excited for this cool new shoe.

Welcome to our nerd club Lauren! Sad to see Ashley go but happy for her in her new endeavors.

I'm putting in an order for the Chili today because my wide ass feet need 3E shoes and they're hard to come by with other shoe manufacturers (and spectator shoes are even less common), but I will say that I wish the design department was a little more in tune with the fine details... the weird little bits of linen in on the sides kinda break up the visual effect of the mixed media. I realize this is because that's the McAllister layout and it looks fine when it's all leather, but just moving the one piece of leather to come down more in the middle of the section of linen would make it look more balanced.

For example, like these ones from C & J:

https://cached.bensilver.com/RS/SR/product/19/The-Gerrard-Spectator-in-Stone-Canvas-and-Tan-Leather_5608_R_2683ea1b.jpg

My second suggestion would have been not fully lining them. They're summer shoes with linen for breathability and then there's a layer of leather covering it up!?!?!?!? I suppose they would be more delicate with just linen, but wow what a cool detail that would have been. Oh well, you can't have everything.

Freeports in the rain. Such an underrated boot. You Tongue Tag Deniers are really missing out on a quality pair of footwear. I know it's pretty obvious from this shot that the tag throws off the entire balance of the boot, but you learn to live with it.

I really want to order a pair, but are these really 9 weeks out for a size 10D in dark chili? I have a wedding in July in Italy that I would love to wear these in, but 9 weeks out is far too long for me.

The more I look at it, the less and less I like the mixed media on the sneakers and the more I do like on the dress shoes. I will probably break down and cop a chili pair and pass on the sneakers. The white pair of sneakers is definitely the one to get, but my white sneaker pool is already three feet (hah) deep at this point.

Just something about the linen and leather being almost the same color, but not. Had we gotten a blueberry suede with the grey linen on the sneaker, I'd be all over it.

It says 9, but you'll probably get it way sooner... Or it could wind up being like 12 weeks for some reason.

I don’t wear sneakers except to do yardwork around the house.
I love the navy McAllister spectator but I think the rest of my wardrobe would limit me. It will be chili if anything. I have four other spectators but live in the South ;) and accidentally killed my regular McAllisters with maple syrup recently.

Non-AE post here, but another MIUSA (or at least partially assembled here) footwear company.

I purchased these Thorogood GYW steel toe work boots for my previous job in a factory. I wore these boots 5 days a week for 2.5 years, and I have literally never done anything with them care wise. No cleaning, no conditioning, nada.

Now that I work from home, I figured that I should clean them up and see what patina has developed over the last 2.5 years. The left boot was cleaned this weekend with some Dawn dish soap and a toothbrush. The right boot has been left untouched.


Here is what the boots looked like on their first proper outing.

Here is what they look like 2.5 years of domestic abuse later.

What do you guys think? Should I get some saddle soap to get *all* of the of the weld soot out of them or just slather them up with Bick 4 and call it a day?
