Damn, I wish it wasn't on the 2 last. The walnut leather player's shoe is spectacular.
Agreed, however I wouldn't go as far to say they are gunboat shoes. They aren't super clunky... I was very surprised AE decided to discontinue the production of Van Ness. They were a rubber soled version of the PA's/5th avenues.
I just picked up a pair of these, my first AEs. I posted a photo a bit further up. Lovely shoe, and fits very well.
yeah i tried it on at the store, they are tight in the toe box compare to the my Strand. and they don't offer anything in E width with that shoe. only with the D width and the EEE width...
i also tried on the Williams, it's really comfortable tho. the leather is definitely better and even the shoe laces are thicker on that pair. if it's on a good sale i might pick it up since I dun have any longwings and they are the same as the Ralph Lauren Sanderson.
My Bayfield's--been wearing them as actual boots and they are awesome. Decided to clean them up today.
Scuffs, scratches, dirt, oh yeah!
1) Damp rag wipe down
2) AE leather conditioner all over
3) Saphir Reno on the scuffs
4) Probably broke some kind of rule here but used AE Chili paste polish lightly on toe/vamp and scuffs. Made it shine up a little.
5) Brown edge dressing
These boots are awesome--comfy, rugged, and in narrow widths (mine are 11B).
This makes me especially excited for my Bayfields that should arrive this week!
I just picked a pair of these up. Glad to see they clean up so well. I love the feel of them.
I have been using AE Chili polish on my brown Kenilworths and am really happy with the result...
I didn't have THAT much time on my hands!! I was actually surprised myself how nice they turned out.
CXL is an amazing leather. Takes a lickin' and keeps on tickin'.
Sooo... I am going to look like an idiot here. Can anyone give me the factory email for seconds? I know I have found it on here before, but, I can not find it for the life of me.
