    The end of your toes will never be at the end of the shoe, unless your feet is super strange, as long as the ball of the feet is good, then not much pinching and slippery, the fit should be ok.

    I was unable to figure out what colour the Amoks on the seconds list were as they are called mocha and brogue suede, while in the catalog they were called snuff suede and bitter chocolate. So Kelsey at the Jeffersonville outlet grabbed the boots, took some pictures, and sent them off to me. Top notch service.

    Now just the hard part of deciding between the tan, brogue, and snuff suede.

    First pair of AE ,black Maccallisters,was undecided between these or PA's.

    What do you think about the lacing and fit around heel, these are 9.5EE.

    Thanks.[​IMG]

    Just used "EB2S1" for 15% off AEs on 6pm.com

    Purchased my long time lust for AEs Fifth Street Boots for 259$ out the door.
    Guess I saved 116.00 off MSRP with that...I'll take it!

    On the CTA
    The Promontory looks like it's just a Wolverine boot in a different leather, with all eyelets and an AE tag. Try a 1000 mile boot for reference.

    Has anybody purchased a wallet from AE? If so, can you comment on the quality vs price (about $110)?

    Actually, I might go with a Saddleback Leather Wallet. Seems like a better value.

    I just bought some walnut Daltons, and am waiting for them to arrive. I am wondering if anyone has used Obenauf's LP on their walnut boots before? (possible color change?) I am wondering what kind of protection I should use on them. They aren't intended to be "beaters", but I plan on wearing the hell out of them. Any suggestions?

    Shell is a very durable material, just don't get them wet. Honestly a brush and the occasional reno treatment will be all you need. The mac method has the reputation it does for good reason, that being it really works. I have adopted a less is more approach with shell. Good luck I ordered my shell daltons last month and love them so far.

    Thank you for the advice, and glad to hear that you love your dalton, I expect I will as well. My Daltons however, are Walnut Calf (wish they were shell, but not in the funds). Any advice for the calf version?
