    Received BLACK Cordovan Dundee seconds today but ordered Brown...bummer.
    Hopefully they can find something to replace them with as I already have black.

    Anyone have any success getting a replacement shoe from a sale that is over?

    Really wanted my 1st cordovan.....

    The Walnut Lombards were my first pair of AEs! They look great, and are still one of my favorite pairs to wear.

    Yes, as long as it's in stock. Problem usually is that it's not available. Good Luck!

    Allen Edmonds is not listed as a "Participating Store". I'm contacting Terri and Jill to find out for sure.

    I received a pair Wolverine 1000 Mile 744 LTD's by AE today. This was my crowning jewel from the shell sale! They are brown shell (Wolverine calls them Mahogany) with W's butyl leather sole and Vibram heel. Marked as seconds but no real obvious defect I can see. Once may have been a show room shoe - few marks and carpet burns on sole while the other is pristine. At $325, these are definitely keepers!!!

    Great video! Something I just realized is that I don't ever discuss this stuff in any detail with anyone in person, just online. It was interesting hearing it pronounced (correctly, I assume) as "COR-dah-van", rather than "cor-DOH-van", as I say it (incorrectly, I assume), and "BLOO-ker", rather than "BLOO-cher". Dumb, but neat.

    You have two options:

    1) order a fully customized, personal 1-off MTO for full retail plus $125.

    2) join one of the current Styleforum group MTOs for 15-20% off. I believe the brown cordovan Townley is still accepting orders.

    So I've been unhappy with my burgundy shell MacNeils for a while now. When I took the goop off, they were splotchy underneath. I tried fixing it, but to no avail. So I fixed my problem. Bought an old stock pair off firsts off ebay for $300. They are perfect. I will now send my original pair back to AE for redrafting, where I have requested a natural welt and edge dressing, akin to my Lexingtons. Since they will also refinish them, should solve my problem; and I get a cool pair of shoes in the process!

    New pair:

    The two shell offerings are definitely open.
    Regarding the three calfskin EC's, Allison has received the orders but hasn't invoiced folks yet. At least not me.

    If I were you I'd call her tomorrow and ask if you could still jump in. Seems like there would be no reason to not add you if there were plenty of leather in the color you wanted. You're no worse off for trying.

    I also got a pair of Nassaus in brown shark. I've been lusting after this one for years, finally found a pair that fits. I'm normally a 12 EEE, but this pair in 12.5 E seems to fit. I'm going to go with the v-tread tap sole. As these are beat to hell and from the 70s, AE redrafting will have their hands full. I'm also asking for a medium brown transparent edge.

    That is a score in capital letters. The 744 LTDs are awesome boots. Enjoy them!
