    I'd second the idea to petition AE to resurrect this shoe. Allison must have been surprised to get this exact same question about a 53 year old shoe from two people on the same day. I emailed her as well earlier today.

    That is not 100% true.
    yes you can still change your sole durning recrafting but now they charge an additional $10.00 on top of the recrafting price

    I have both of those as well and wouldn't give one up for the other. I'm happy to have both, but I guess it depends how many shoes are in your rotation.

    I highly recommend it, the favorite of my 7 pairs of AE. Here's some possible incentive:

    They no longer have the last or die. So, they would have to recreate a die, and build it on a current last. I would buy one. :)

    General population will not notice, but I guarantee that you will have more than 3 pairs of shoes soon, haha.

    They're very similar. I'll wear these a few more times and see if its gets better. You're right...they're cheaper and made in the DR (but I still like them a lot)

    It was from a local store. I grabbed one of the last pairs but there were a couple more pairs in dark brown at the time. Not sure now because this was 3 days ago. Anyway its ok because I think I will go with the brown cordovan strands I ordered last night from the $299 cordovan sale on seconds. That was seriously an impulse buy which I was thinking about cancelling while I was still trying to make the decision between mcallister vs strand in calfskin. But it shipped, so I guess I'll just forget everything and go walnut calf strand and brown cordovan strand. Now I need to go deal hunting and hunt down some black park avenues.

    A quick research suggests that Kent last is probably an older name of the current 7 last. Browsing the 1963 AE catalogue I found that MacNeil has been built on the same last.
