    Today is old school. These are Sanfords in the late 1990s early 2000s Bourbon.

    Is $179 a good price for suede Strands? Looks like they're a discontinued style, and I do love the Strand.

    Personally, I love the suede from AE. However, there are people who will disagree with me and say it's not the best quality. That being said, if I was given the opportunity to pay $179 for suede Strands, I'd do it without hesitation.

    Burgundy shell cordovan
    Independence lining & insole
    Medium brown transparent edge dressing
    Brown normal welt (or chili - not sure)
    Single JR sole

    Any takers?

    Me... Makeup sounds nice to start, but with the burgundy shell Bradley just ordered, all my cordo selections are burgundy (Dalton, Cambridge). The burgundy strand would be burgundy overkill, i think. Maybe I'll send back the Bradley and wait for this. You can count me in the "willing to bite if the numbers hold" category - I'm assuming 12 is the magic number again? Should be about the same $$$ as the recent shell Townley GMTO, I assume?

    Gentlemen, I need your help. I am usually a 10.5 in most of my AE's which include some of the RL Made in America, Sanderson's and Amok from AE.

    I have a friend who is offering me his bourbon dalton's for a great price but the boot is a size 10D. Would I fit the 10D if I am in a 10.5D in the Sanderson? Some space in the toes in the Sanderson. Thanks in advance.

    I wouldn't do it. The 1 last runs shorter and wider than the 2, 4, abd 5 lasts. If anything, I'd size up to an 11 for Dalton.

    Does anyone own the Gobi in snuff yet? If so could you post some "real life" pics? Thoughts on the quality of construction? I'm tempted and see that there are loads available as 2nds.

    Attention anyone who owns the Long Branch in dark brown grain:

    How do you care for them? I've read just a little leather lotion +/- cleaner conditioner or saddle soap. My pair has kind of a flat dull brown color, which I kind of expected from that kind of boot . . . however, in looking online at pictures of other people's LBs, I've noticed some amazing looks.

    Take, for instance, this person:

    I realize this is the older version with the lighter welt and thinner sole. But is the leather any different? It doesn't look like waxy brown. But it sure seems to hold somewhat of a shine. The leather looks so much better than mine there.

    They could have thrown some neutral cream polish on them

    Not sure if this the right thread to ask this question; but have any of you ever had to remove the dressing off of the heel? On some of my shoes, the edge dressing has built up to the point where it will peel/flake off in parts. Simply covering it with more dressing doesn't really work so I was thinking it would be better if I could just remove it all together and start from scratch. I can peel some of it off with my fingers but that's super tedious. I think I read people on here using sandpaper or something like that?

    Thanks

    I just pulled the trigger on a pair at that price. I'm hopeful! (If your're a 10D, there's one pair left!)

    I've been eyeing the Dalton. I normally wear 10D with most AE. I imagine I should size up to either 10E or 10.5D?

    try the 10 D or E before sizing up. The daltons are wider than the 5 last shoes, and not much shorter
