    How do they mark seconds? I apologize for misinterpreting your tone.

    I have a couple that are "older school" than those. Not sure if they even protect against surges! [​IMG]

    Has anyone tried to return/exchange shoes with the Shoe Bank in Port Washington? Does it usually take a few weeks turnaround?

    Brown is ideal for FAs IMO, for your first pair at least. Personally I prefer the McAllisters in Merlot.

    The wedge sole on the carson city is driving me nuts. Is it so hard to just put a normal sole on a good looking boot? Here is a totally sweet boot, almost on par with the dalton, and then it has some wacky red brick or china white sole. WHY?! Is this to force us to their more upmarket boots?

    I got a pair of Wolverine Krause (made by AE as I am sure you all know) at the Shoe Bank the other day and seem to like them, but think I'd like to pick an "Ask the Audience" option.

    I wonder what justifies the steep $555 retail for them? This is at least $67 more than a pair of Indys at the ShoeMart and, fwiw, $57 more than what they retail for at Jcrew. How would you compare them to Indys in terms of style and functionality. On a related note, do you think Krause is redundant if I also have a pair of Wolverine 744LTD?

    They must be very busy this time of the year. I'd say it usually takes me about a week and a half. I actually highly recommend the Freeport store. They are much more helpful than the folks at the Port Washington store and the turnaround is super-fast. I am in NJ and I usually get stuff the next day.

    Redundant is subjective.
    I personally like them, and don't believe they are.
    I thought about the rust ones.
    I don't have much of an opinion about pricing.
    They are priced in line with cxl cap toes from Alden.

    How much did you get your Krause for?



    Does anyone have any input on the MacAdam dress boots? Im thinking of picking up a pair since fifth streets are basically never on sale.

    Just checked out the Macadams. They look nice. They are basically cronmoks with a dress calf. I think it's unlined as well. I have a picture but I can't seem to upload on my phone. The leather feels a little different than my regular calfskin, but it might be because it's unlined. FWIW the ST also had never seen it until the sale

    I'll upload a picture when I get home.

    Edit: apparently they are on the 1 last not the 5 like the cronmok

    I'd go with the website then. I got two answers from two different stores and locations. Forgot to take a picture of the model number :(

    What shoe is this in the AE ad? I don't recognize it. It's an adelaide on what appears to be the 8 last (judging by the tapering on the toe), but it has only 5 eyelets and the cap toe line appears to be too well placed to be an AE. Anyone recognize it?
