    I work in a world class Medical Foundation of 60,000 FTE's and until recently (couple of months ago) the dress code in the employee manual stated men will wear black lace up dress shoes. And I totally understand the reason for dress codes and professionalism in appearance. The policy has recently changed to read:

    Solid white, brown, navy, or black shoes.
    Limited accent colors are permissible if the predominant shoe color is solid (i.e., less than 10% accent color).

    And they now mention laces:

    Laces should be appropriate for the style of shoe worn with colors restricted to white, black, brown, and navy

    And on socks....

    Socks should be a solid color in white or color-coordinated with the scrubs or shoes.

    OK there had to been more than 100 people on that committee and they said match socks to shoes? Guess I was in uniform today after all if yellow matches walnut (erhh excuse me brown), rainy with severe thunderstorms so walnut calf McAllister's today.

    If I apply a toppy over the hole of this sole, would that create any issues in the long run? Or is it a must to get the soles replaced then use the toppy?

    You know, I really have no clue why people keep accusing David of being a Nordstrom employee trying to sell shoes on this forum. People sometimes just make these crazy speculative leaps without any factual basis.

    Saving $135 is quite the deal as a first. I doubt you will see that again for quite a while.

    David,

    Thanks.

    I've gotten some great deals on this thread by you and other members giving each other a "heads up" of retailers having AEs on sale. Remember that Jos A Bank deal on their Park Aves? Went to a long lunch and missed that one :brick:

    BTW, your second link didn't work. Thanks, again.

    So do I Doc, Xterra Off Road model and have considered doing the Nissan Titan axle swap on it.

    A good friend of mine at work is French educated Lebanese. 3 things we will never agree on- Israel, my choice in shoes and vehicles. He drives a BMW and claims that I should be driving a Mercedes-Benz. When I ask him if it comes with locking diffs front and back and what is the approach angle he rolls his eyes. Can't see me blowing through water up to the windows with a Mercedes because some beavers had built another dam along some logging road LOL. The right tool for the job......
    Had a FJ55 Toyota Landcruiser back around ~1980 in Washington State (Hood Canal side) which when I got married a few years later it was the first thing to go. The Toyota 2F engine was anemic at best so I did the Man A Fre small block conversion starting with an acid dipped bare block 350 Chevy and built it up from there. Punched it .020 over, 4 bolt main, milled the heads and pop up pistons gave compression where it ran best on 93 or 94 octane. Topped her off with a Holly 650. It was a beast but not sure where I would get fuel for her today. Last I saw of it she was headed to Adak, Alaska. In between the Nissan and Toyota I had American vehicles, but finally gave up on them.

    I have walnut and merlot McAllister and I really like the merlot. The walnut of course is nice too but the merlot is more versitile. I do find that the color is very different in different lighting conditions. In the sunlight it does pop and seems to have more red to it in my experience. It's very nice. While indoors in incandescent light it has a much more muted darker tone but is still nice. I also have the burgundy/black Sheltons and I like the combo and the burgundy is pretty much the same as the merlot color IMO.

    I did see some oxblood Park Aves on eBay and the color looked really nice. It has more red in it. It doesn't seem that AE makes this color any more. Finally, when I saw the merlot Park Ave in person I liked it alot. I don't really like the Park Ave in any other color.

    Indoors (as they came out of the box):

    I'm almost sure they make E widths for the BB versions
