    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Thank you! The manager at the outlet sent me the below pictures of the boots. I am not really an expert here, but I am having trouble finding any major issues. Hard to tell if the light is causing coloring issues in the picture.

    Buy those ASAP, they are fantastic looking!



    Looks like the flaw is some stitching that is coming undone in the second pic up by the "1000 Mile". I think a cobbler should be able stitch it back quite easily.

    ^^ What he said. Those are gorgeous. $299 is unlikely to be seen ever again; even for $399 they're a steal.

    Not sure what you mean by "coloring issues," but if you're talking about the variation in shading, that's one of my favorite things about shell cordovan. On our way to dinner on Saturday my wife pointed it out on my burgundy Daltons and mentioned that she wished her boots did that sort of thing.

    The Rush Street has landed. They just came in at my local menswear / shoe store. The shoe fits great (at least for me). It fits just like my Strands, but the chromexcel is softer and the Dainite sole is more flexible than the leather. I think this shoe will get a lot of wear as it will go with just about everything I wear except suits.

    They also got the Carlyle in. Beatiful shoe in Walnut. But it was too tight across the top of my foot - I have a relatively high instep and a lot of plaintoes bite me across the top of my foot. I didn't try going up a half size, that might have helped. But the Carlyle is a beautiful shoe in Walnut.

    As several have suggested, you should get these. I wore my pair yesterday and really like them, and think they look even better after a year than they did new.

    I have the Montana belt in grey that I use for my Long Branches as well as my grey McTavishes and J. Crew bucks. It's lighter than I would have wanted - almost too light - but it works well enough.

    Does anyone have any sizing experience with the Kenwood? I'm an 11B in Strands/McCallisters and a 10.5B in Macneils. I'm not sure how the loafers/Kenwood fits....

    400 for shell is a good deal these days, but I'd save up and get shell from a better boot maker like AE vs. wolverine

    The 744s are made by AE for Wolverine.

    Wolverine shell is made by AE

    All of Wolverine's 360-degree welted products are made by AE

    I've noticed quite a handful of Albertan's on here (well specifically Calgary).

    I travel to Calgary usually twice a year .. each time I've been up there has been mostly nonstop work and haven't had much free time... but next time, I'll make sure to add a couple extra days. Any suggestions on places/stores/etc I should stop by while in Calgary?

    Don't quote me on this, but I believe AE makes most, if not all, the Wolverine 360 degree welted boots. I'm not sure where I heard that, though...

    Mine seem to be shorter than the Park Ave's I have, which worked out fine for me. In terms of width, I sized up to a 3E and they fit fine, slightly larger than the E width I have with the PA. I take a size 14, which is slightly large, but 13 would be too small, so I find the Black Hills have been a good pick up. That being said, i've only worn them out once since getting them a week ago.

    If AE makes the Wolverine Krause and uses Horween Dublin leather, is there any particular reason for the exorbitant difference in price between the MSRP of the Krause ($555) and any of the AE Dublin offerings ($295-345)?

    Since you requested a midsole, the welt stitching was stitched to that, and then the Dainite sole was cemented onto the midsole. I don't think you will likely see a difference in durability. The stitches are lock stitched, and therefore they are designed to take abrasion. Sometimes the system fails, but it is the exception to the rule.
