I just treated my long branches with LP. That stuff smells so great.
Indyoshi, sorry to hear about your webgems. I am very tolerant of blemishes for seconds, but I would very quickly return those Franciscans. The Parkways look great, the question is whether or not you prefer the darker bourbon...
How did you size the 8-last compared to others?
I've been wondering what to coat mine with. Good call.
I wear my shoes, that's a good idea, since the black edging is going to look bad as I kick the shit out of them. He actually really likes that I buy quality shoes and then actually wear them as shoes.
I suppose that's a bit more reassuring, then. There just weren't two creases on the top part of the original pair that met at one point and ran down the outer part of the shoe together. But if it doesn't look terribly unusual, then I guess there's nothing to worry about. I did get fitted at a factory store over the weekend to see what size Daltons I should wear, and the associate who helped me there suggested a 10.5E vs the 10E I have for my Park and Fifth Aves. They're made from the same last so maybe I panicked a bit and assumed the creasing was because of incorrect size. The two that I have are a bit snug, and I probably should've sized up. I didn't get very good help from the associate at the DC store when I bought my first pair .
Could someone please PM me allison's email for MTO? I have searched, but only have turned up a few phone numbers.
Thanks in advance
Unboxed my Park Aves today from the Thanksgiving sale and overall am pleased with them. The only thing that I found is the extra thread on the back of the shoe. Should I just snip off the extra with scissors? Also would appreciate if anyone else can spot anything that I may have missed (I honestly don't see anything else wrong with them) as these are my first decent pair of shoes.
Sadly, the search here seems to be really nerfed. Here's an example Google search that answers your question. I'm sharing this instead of the answer so that others know how to better search this thread:
Yes, you should be able to just snip that thread. You could also consider melting the end with a flame, though you'd want to be quick and careful.
As for other problems, if you don't see 'em, they don't exist! But seriously, I didn't notice anything.
The long branch looks similar to your walnut shell daltons?
Would you mind posting pictures?
I own both, and I don't think they look at all alike. The leather is so different, and the soles are as well.
Thank you! Lacing them up as I type this, I'm so excited! Unfortunately an addiction is growing as I want bourbon Strands now as well I can't afford to be in this game lol.
Dark Chocolate Daltons have arrived.
