    I love the walnut AEs, but am concerned about paying ~$300 for shoes I can really only wear with navy or olive (not a huge khaki guy).

    What do you guys think about the burgandy burnish? Seems like something you could pull off with a charcoal suit as well as the colors i mentioned above. Can anyone post a real life picture? having trouble judging the ones from AE/nordstrom websites

    Or should I just sack up for the walnut and know I will have them for 3-5 years if I take good care of them?


    I recently picked up a pair of Strands in walnut and they're gorgeous. I've been able to wear them with lighter grey trousers and different earth-tones (shades of brown/tan mainly) in addition to the colors you mentioned (navy, olive).

    I just bought a pair of the Augusta that I was able to get for half off; I really like the Walnut colour and think it's a beautiful shoe.

    Wearing mine right now.

    I Picked up a pair of the Fairfax in Walnut at a Nordstrom Rack. Similar shoe but it is a 360 welt. I wonder how long they will keep doing the 270's?

    Provided that the demand persists it will continue a long long time to come. Welcome to Styleforum.

    Sizing suggestions for Bayfield.

    I'm a 8.5 in Macneils.

    I'd suggest you try to take a look in person. I'm a 8D in PA And 5th Aves, went with a 8D Bayfield. But the boot looks really bulgy and chunky to me, almost like a work boot. I had to return them.

    I am finished staring at my new AEs and going to wear them for the first time this week. Do you guys recommend scuffing up the soles a little at first or just letting them get roughed up from regular use?

    just wear them. only takes a few minute walk on concrete to get them scuffed.

    if you are only going to walk on carpet, i suggest you be careful, or scuff them first.

    Hello all. I have an odd issue. I just received a pair of brown fifth avenues in size 6.5E. I noticed that they are significantly wider than my black park ave and walnut mcallisters in the exact same size. For example, the laces close all the way on this pair and the right shoe in particular is very roomy (some heel slippage).

    What could account for this? Is there any way to fix it?

    Can someone explain the 270s to me? I understand what they are, I just dont get the point.

    I have a very nice pair of vintage burgundy Boulevards (c1980s?) which have a problem. Like a modern C&J hand grade they have a full leather sole.

    Unfortunately it had hardened on the edges under the instep and has curled ever so slightly making the shoes (which are otherwise my fit 10.5E) very uncomfortable/impossible to wear.

    Would an AE recraft solve the problem as my cobbler says he can't replace the inner sole?

    They are supposed to be sleeker. AE is one of the few companies that do 360 degree Goodyear welts. To some, this makes AE appear blobby.
