It really does, looks like the same exact boot, different leather, at least at first glance.
Ugh, if only Amazon had the McAllister's in Bourbon. I would be all over that extra 20% off.
Glad I'm not the only guy who remembers that boots actually were capable of being shined a long time ago in the 80s. Nothing like a pair of Corcorans bloused into Class A's!
As I've said before, don't be surprised if order AEs through Amazon and receive ceased or minimally worn shoes...
I saphir reno all of my new shoes before wear, shell or calf. From time to time, with calf, I will use a neutral shoe cream instead (usually Alden boot cream).
Many sales associates will tell you you needn't treat them before the first wear. I would respectfully suggest they are simply wrong.
If the budget allows, get both. If the budget doesn't allow, get calf.
Thanks. That simple logic helps quite a bit.
He is my size. Also, he is adopting me, though he may not know that.
I just got caught in the rain in my Townleys. What a mess it makes them! Any good tricks to prevent that ? Thanks
Alden Leather Defender -
I got the all football nuemok web gems and was wondering, are these going to be impervious to just about anything, being made of football leather?
Not sure about what, if any, upkeep is needed.
Also, pulled the trigger on the brown Jefferson's today.
I emailed about Bayfield about a day ago(haven't heard back, but I have patience). One was I feel shell just show off better if in cap toe or plain toe boot form, two was feeling Bayfield in Shell would be easier to dress up or down, three it will be more unique because there has been a few shell variety of Datlons already out there. I also inquired about having a Eagle County made with Dublin leather and differnt soles....
love the Promontory Point and Gwinnett...still hoping for a plain toe boot from AE though.
Ready to kick up some dust on the Vegas strip
I bought my all football neumok through the AE retail store, and the salesman suggested using AE neutral premium shoe polish. I'm not sure how necessary that is, but better safe than sorry, I suppose.
For those with snuff suede shoes, do any of you have experience
with Saphir suede & nubuck spray?
Hanger project has it back in stock and I was thinking of picking
some up. Would medium brown be closer in color to snuff suede?
