How do they mark seconds? I apologize for misinterpreting your tone.
Ordered a pair of 5th Avenues in Black and the Ralph Lauren Saunders in Tan Calf.
Really looking forward to these boots ($150 !!!):
A brand in the shape of a shoe. Like this:
Sweet old school surge protector in the background.
I have a couple that are "older school" than those. Not sure if they even protect against surges!
cant recall ever seeing snobbiness in the alden thread :shrug:
Thanks; just purchases the last pair of seconds in 9E!
That one's for my lamp and Kindle charger...
Has anyone tried to return/exchange shoes with the Shoe Bank in Port Washington? Does it usually take a few weeks turnaround?
Brown is ideal for FAs IMO, for your first pair at least. Personally I prefer the McAllisters in Merlot.
The wedge sole on the carson city is driving me nuts. Is it so hard to just put a normal sole on a good looking boot? Here is a totally sweet boot, almost on par with the dalton, and then it has some wacky red brick or china white sole. WHY?! Is this to force us to their more upmarket boots?
I got a pair of Wolverine Krause (made by AE as I am sure you all know) at the Shoe Bank the other day and seem to like them, but think I'd like to pick an "Ask the Audience" option.
I wonder what justifies the steep $555 retail for them? This is at least $67 more than a pair of Indys at the ShoeMart and, fwiw, $57 more than what they retail for at Jcrew. How would you compare them to Indys in terms of style and functionality. On a related note, do you think Krause is redundant if I also have a pair of Wolverine 744LTD?
They must be very busy this time of the year. I'd say it usually takes me about a week and a half. I actually highly recommend the Freeport store. They are much more helpful than the folks at the Port Washington store and the turnaround is super-fast. I am in NJ and I usually get stuff the next day.
Redundant is subjective.
I personally like them, and don't believe they are.
I thought about the rust ones.
I don't have much of an opinion about pricing.
They are priced in line with cxl cap toes from Alden.
