    I agree--the MTO possibilities are endless and a shell version of this in a chocolate would be amazing IMO...been eyeing this style boot for a while now so I was really floored when it popped up in my size all of a sudden last week...and the next day after I bought it, the listing was gone. I finally got lucky!

    Now if only I can find a pair of Jomocs in my size!

    I don't get any toe wear on my vtread tap soles vs my leather soles. IMHO you don't need to install toe taps on these.

    My vote would go to the oxblood. But, I really like the color. I ordered some brown shell PAs during the RDA sale. Then, the holiday catalog arrives with the new color. I had the PAs shipped to the store because I didn't want them left on the porch. I'm going to have a tough time avoiding something in oxblood when I go there to pick them up and actually see the oxblood in person. I already have burnished Merlot Strands, but I'm thinking oxblood Carlyles, or Daltons, or?

    Hope AE does something a bit better for Black Friday this year than last - from memory it was all ugly non-classic models on sale.

    I thought the $99 sale on closed out models was not that bad, I was able to pick up a few things. However, I expect that price will increase this year. We'll wait and see.

    I just picked up a pair of Promontory Point boots in brown grain for $159 from Shoebank. They're in pretty decent shape. They fit well once the ortho insert was removed. The Dainite sole is a bit unusual on boots, IMO. What's everyone's opinion on these boots? For my purposes, they will work great as weekend boots in the Fall (i.e., college football).

    It was 21 degrees this morning in OKC so it is officially boot season.

    Inaugural run for my new Shaker Heights - best $127 I have spent in a along time

    Very nice! I hate that I missed those at $127. They're really grown on me since.

    Chili is still at $127 on the Shoebank website if they have your size.. Or are they still showing the sale prices on the website and have not updated yet?

    Dainite seems to be the popular choice across makers right now for boots....I like those boots and REALLY like the original boot with the more rounded toe...They were gone by time I decided to venture my boot addiction kicked in and the MTO addiction...If I could do a Promotory in that natural shell or natural CXL would do it in a heartbeat.

    I finally timed my rotation right for Walnut (shell) Wednesday! Paired with some HF corduroys I scored at Nordstrom Rack. It's my last day at work before I move onto something else next week so it's a nice way to go out, I think.

    Some nice boot finds here...

    To all of you fellow boot owners, how do you accelerate the break-in so as not to suffer through the "squeakiness" of the leather tongue rubbing against the inner boot leather? Can I do anything to stop the noise or at least tone it down right away? Maybe conditioner? And I'm not looking to stick on soft Velcro on the inside like I've found others do on this site....

    Just got down to freezing today in Austin, and I too am on a maiden voyage. Loving them so far. What a steal.

    I have never had squeeking issues with new boots. Maybe I have been lucky.

    This may be more of a "quick question" topic than an appreciation item but it is AE related.

    I have had a pair of cognac mactavishes for about 8 months. I have noticed that on one shoe there is some fading between the laces and the point of the wingtip. I thought that perhaps it was simply too dry so for a few weeks I have been trying to condition them more regulatory but it still looks light. The odd part is that only one shoe is doing this.

    Is there a way to restore the color? These are part of the rough collection so I thought it would be ill advised to try polish. Thoughts?

    Also my Kenilworths (which I love) have started an odd thing. Occasionally a little piece of black (apparently plastic). It seems to break off from inside the shoe and I will notice it when I step on it. It is a square about 1 or 2 cm wide. this has happened a couple of time. This is obviously not a good thing. They were purchased as 2nds so I imagine I will just have to deal with this but again, has anyone else noticed this?

    Do you have squeaking with these at all?
