    Can anyone confirm if the LaSalle comes standard with the poron insole? Might have to pick up a pair in chili from the upcoming Nordstrom sale...

    That is a great gift idea - I wish somebody would give me some AE's!

    I am going to suggest a gift card or take him and let him pick them out. With the different styles, lasts, colors, etc., it might be best to let him pick which one he likes best.

    Just my .02 - either way it is a great gift idea.

    If he only has one AE shoe, it would be best to take him shopping for his new pair or, if the fit of his current AE is adequate, to buy the same size as long as the new shoe is on the same last. If you can look inside his current shoe to see what the name of it is, we can offer suggestions for his next pair.

    Just bought the same shoes. It's a new one to me too. No reference on AE site or web search.

    I think someone on here mentioned that the Schatuel was made specifically for the German market.

    Wendy J - you sound like an amazing catch. He is lucky to have such a thoughtful woman. It really depends on what he has and what he can use, and also your price point. If your price point is a little higher ($5-600), I think your boyfriend's jaw would hit the floor if he saw a pair of cappuccino cordovan Strands, Cambridges, Fifth Avenues or Park Avenues. If you want to spice things up a bit, I would also recommend emailing Paul Grangaard (the CEO of Allen Edmonds) and seeing if they could do a custom make up for you of a Fifth Street in cappuccino.

    It sounds like your relationship will outlast his best pair of cordovan shoes - a rare thing these days!

    Yes, that is standard. The foam insole and the courser stitching are the differences between the LaSalle and the Delray.

    Just got the scoop from Brenda at AE and she was very helpful.

    She said she has been with AE for over 20 years and she has never heard of the Schautal. She had to do some digging on her computer to find it and you won't find it on the AE web site.

    The Schuatal is made only for the Nordstrom Rack and it was introduced in October 2012. It is not a factory second nor is it made in an inferior manner.

    It is definitely made in USA from first quality materials. Essentially it is a suede leather MacNeil, double oak sole, etc. on a 97 last (same as #7).

    On these she said the final number in the style "5603" does not mean the specific last anymore. She said there are too many lasts now so AE went to double digit numbers to specify the last.

    A very nice shoe!

    Wow...now that's some customer service. Just another reason I'll keep buying AE.

    Thanks for the info dks202 I saw these same shoes at The Rack here in Tampa.
