    Why not just buy the PAs in calf?

    Those are snazzy! Too bad they don't fit.

    I see you were selling these size 10b's on eBay for $499 before dropping the price to $219.

    Silly question, but if someone were to locate a size 13d . . . how much would they be worth?

    Guess I'll be the first, not thrilled about the look of those.

    $695 plus tax.

    The speed hooks could not be removed but I am unsure about an alternate color

    Brilliant move by Rydenfan!

    Buy another boot that looks similar...and you can slip 'em past the wife :)

    beyond reasonable, thanks for the info.

    I've never sized up that particular model from AE. I have the same naval boot as you, how would you compare sizing?

    thanks!

    Is it just the style that you would like to see available again or would you also like to have shoes made from goats rather than from cows or horses? I'd be happy if Allen Edmonds went back to providing flat waxed laces rather than round laces.

    No goat leather please, I've seen it on shoes and didn't care for it. I like the style, and agree that the flat laces are nice.

    I really prefer the way Alden places the eyelets. The AE boot eyelets always seem too far apart to me.

    Just click on the pic and it'll get larger, David. No...no shine yet, as I haven't worn them. Just some conditioner/cleaner.

    Initially I did... and those shoes seemed more "dull" than the Shell Cordovan. When I heard about the Shell PAs, I thought, "jackpot," but no such luck.

    Those would be great conversation pieces, alongside an equally audacious ensemble.

    Kind of like Pirate shoes, no? Don't think I could ever wear them but serious props to anyone who can pull off the look in the right circumstances.
