    Here is a list I have - it doesn't include the newest models, but it has a lot of the retired models. Beware, some of the model names shown have been reused for newer models - i.e. the Dalton shown on the list is the loafer I purchased in the early 1990's, not the current boot.

    I was waiting for you to respond to this MWS. An insightful comment as usual.

    Trying them on for the first time, I was floored by how comfortable they are. Those who said previously that they feel like wearing slippers are entirely correct.

    I went with the same size as my Strands and initially, this seems to be the right choice.

    Does anyone know if Allen Edmonds will ever come out with an real balmoral boot? Versus the kinda high top+5 last that is the fifth street?

    I really want one but it looks like only English manufacturers make them for $500+ which is too much since I cant even return them or try sizes in the US.

    I also noticed they seem to be retiring the fifth street since the web page says it is an closeout style.

    Wow, this makes me really want a pair of Neumoks.

    Any chance they'll re-release them in suede?

    Call up Allison and have a pair made... hopefully at the reduced price.

    The suede version is amazing, so soft and comfortable. I am seriously thinking about getting a snuff suede version made, I already have the tan suede.

    I guess the only thing lacking in my shoe rotation are loafers and a monk strap. I don't see myself ever wearing a loafer and I haven't warmed up to double-monks just yet, so I think I'll wait on the Mora 2.0. As far as single monks go, I'm not enamored with the styles AE currently offers.

    These 2 shoes have similar styles and are more of what I'm looking for:

    Has AE ever had a model similar to these? Would anyone be able to comment on the quality of Jack Erwin shoes? It is said they use full-grain leather and Blake stitching, but I'm a bit wary of the $195 retail price.

    If you happen to wear 9E, Nordstrom has a pair Snuff Suede for $174.20. Today may be the last day for that price.

    I'm really bummed about this. I've been wanting a pair, and $275 is a great price, but I have too many other purchases in the works. There aren't any seconds in my size, so I don't have that backup plan.

    Looking into getting my first AE shoes soon. 2 questions,

    1. Best place to get for the lowest price?

    2. For someone buying expensive shoes for the first time, what's the best recommendation for taking care of them?

    ^

    I wouldn't judge someone who wears shoes made from exotic leather, but I think that if I wore them I'd feel a bit pretentious. Not my cup of tea.

    Try shell Patriots. I've never been a loafer guy, but have not regretted this purchase one bit. Very comfortable and perfect with a pair of jeans on the weekend.

    I finally received the BB strands in 7.5E & 7E, tried them both on, and walked around a little bit. The 7.5E felt great widthwise and I could wiggle my toes but there was definitely heel slippage as it felt slightly loose around the heel. I can just barely fit my index finger behind my heel if I move my foot towards the front. As for the 7E, it felt great lengthwise with no heel slippage but it definitely felt snug widthwise. I couldn't wiggle my toes at all. Would I be correct in assuming I should try 7EEE to get the best fit? Thanks!

    I'm in the same boat. I'd like a single monk in that style. Meermin and Carmina also make nice ones andI don't think I'd go with a cheaper maker for such an elegant shoe. I saw an awesome Carmina version in navy calf or shell. It seems a little too fashion forward for AE to make such a style well. Every time they try to do something edgy they seem to make it weird somehow.

    Also, seems like alot of AE boots are "closeout styles". I wonder if they are planning on releasing a new line of boots this years.

    Other than the Dalton, I think AE makes all boots closeouts every year.

    Do they actually closeout or just a sales "technique"?

    Some boots go away for good each year. I know the Fifth street has been a closeout in prior years and keeps coming back. The same used to be true with the Malvern, but then it really did go away for good.
