How are you guys sizing on the Amoks?
TTS just a tad narrow for a D very soft upper almost glove like with a normal welted sole
Can anyone comment on the brown San Marcos AE has on clearance for $200? I need a pair of brown shoes, it looks like a nice last, and their mini lug sole manages to still be sleek looking. Theres only one review on the whole website regarding a sizing issue:
Lasalles are $129 for memorial pricing but they honored it today to ensure I get a pair. Amok selling for $99 but she is able to give me extra 15% off.
I didn't notice a difference in length with my Kenilworth's vs my other 5 last shoes, just volume. I put a tongue pad in and I've been fine with them since.
I know that Paul has offered the Style Forum participants a great MTO deal. Looking at prior posts it seems like most have taken advantage by ordering unique shell shoes in various colors.
I was thinking about asking for AE to make a pair of Fifth Street boots in walnut calf. Any idea how much the cost would be? I assume at least the standard cost of the boot, but would there be any additional charge for the leather color change?
Also, what do you guys think; Would this be a good looking boot?
Just as I was thinking that someone my age (mid-late twenties) wouldn't be able to pull off a pair of spectators, here comes Derrick Rose... spectating... last night vs. the heat when things began to get out of hand http://www.canada.com/cms/binary/8357731.jpg
Not sure what brand those are.
Walnut Player's Shoe today:
I just received my BB Walnut Loafers (Presido's) and inspected them. They look fine, a few cosmetic issues which is why they are seconds but nothing really noticeable. What is noticeable is the heel slippage on both feet. I am normally a 10D in the 5 last so I tried the same with these but I'm reluctant to try and size down as I think that might be to small. I'm wondering if I need to try a loafer in a different last? Visually I like the BB loafer because it seemed sleeker than the Patriot. Plus I really liked the walnut.
Any feedback? I'm going to call the store and see what they say but I was wondering if this could also be a width issue. The ball of my foot feels snug so that is why I didn't think that was it but who knows.
Shell burgundy Leeds on their way.
AE stores are honoring Memorial Sale discounts already.
I HATE YOU GUYS!
Any word on the regular retail locations; What sales are happening there?
I had a hard time with the Presidio also. I got a lot of heel slippage, yet it was too narrow in the forefoot. I generally have a tough time fitting the 2-last, but with loafers it is way worse if you don't get a perfect fit.
I happen to think that the Patriot and BB/Alden LHS are great looking shoes. If you want a sleek loafer, you are probably better off going with C&J or some other European maker.
Well I talked to Jerry and he recommended a tongue pad which I should have thought of myself considering it's what I have in my Royal Imperial Florsheim's. I'll give that a shot and see if it works. Anyone think that will be odd if I wear no show socks with these? Skin rubbing on that tongue pad.
It's a mild let down when you get a new pair of AE's, rush to get them on and then realize you have to wait a little bit longer...Oh well, good practice in patience.
That's helpful. I'm going to try the tongue pad. If that doesn't work than I'm going to return and try the Patriot. I would be all over it but I really want walnut and that isn't offered (at least I don't see it on the site). Also, that combination tap sole looks pretty awesome.
*edit* I see the Westchester is offered in Walnut. Not sure on the 7 last but I could give that a shot as well.
