    NewShoes: I am a fan of the Leeds. I own it in burgundy shell, black shell, brown shell, and walnut shell (soon to arrive). The 1 last, for me, is great. The MacNeil is decent looking, but the 7 last is a tricky fit. I own it in burgundy shell (with AE's version of commando outsole). As for the Dalton, we will agree to disagree. No problem. Daltons seem to be selling well ...

    Lostron: I wear shell cordovan shoes and boots year 'round. Indeed, as I type I am wearing the C&J for BB burgundy shell captoe boots.

    A good day to one and all. :D

    Sweet. This is what I want, but in reference to my earlier post, is the Brooks Brothers version of the Shelton basically the same shoe with a different sole, or is the leather not as good as the AE shoe?

    For some of us the Anniversary sale starts in just a few weeks on July 10th. And last year's Anniversary Sale was a whopping 35% off retail.

    I think the sole is different, but that's it. These Sheltons are all-shell, by the way.

    Again, it was just a comment by Brett (who is a Manager at Nordstroms Shoes) - and he has been at Nordstroms for 19 years, owns over 90 pair of very nice shoes (including AE, Alden, etc) - and he mentioned he uses a dress style of the Echo for on his feet all day. I would think others, such as doctors, would be good to visit a Nordstrom Department Store and try on a pair, alongside any of the AE styles to - and make the judgement in person.

    Those walnut shell MacNeils are amazing. They're exactly what I'm looking for to fill the "casual yet stylish" void in my AE collection.

    Great advice.

    How long did it take you?

    Perhaps on some styles, but they have other dress shoes which have a decent stitched-like welt around the top of the sole. That is the type Brett favors. Next time you go to a good store, examine them for yourself - that is if you need a pair for on your feet all day. Otherwise, you would not need to consider Ecco.

    "Ecco." Not "Echo"

    The Ecco suggestion was for "those who are on their feet all day", who want something dressy and attractive - but COMFORTABLE for all day use. It's just a choice and has less to do with price and more to do with all day comfort.

    Rather than concentrate on the factory video - here is a video in the final step of wear:
