    Always buy things like this, immediately. You can always return.

    Good strategy, doubt it will work though...

    Due to a chance meeting between my left foot and a cast iron skillet, my foot is a little too swollen to wear any footwear except these thankfully girthy Shakers:

    Does anyone know a good place to get a shaker heights for less than they are on Amazon? All the pictures here have converted me.

    Edit I'm a 9D if anyone wants to part with theirs.

    Yesterday it was no coffee. Today there is coffee but with a frying pan on your foot. I'm concerned about tomorrow.

    Everytime I see these now I regret not "wanting" them when they were available...


    There's a non-tweed version on eBay right now in 9D.

    Hello Allen Edmonds Gurus

    Can one of the enlightened help me decipher AE's color coding, specifically in relation to Merlot//Oxblood/Burgundy? Unfortunately, there are no AE stores within 2,000 miles of where I live, so I cannot see these shoes in person, and they kinda all look the same online

    So is Merlot the same as Oxblood is the same as Burgundy in AE Terminology? If not, could someone rank them along the spectrum from blackish-purple to brownish red?

    I'm guessing that Merlot is the darkest and most purple, Oxblood is a little lighter and redder, and Burgundy is closest to brownish red.

    Is this a fair interpretation? And which is the closest to Color #8?

    Wore my Shakers again today also! Snapped a quick pic, but there were others coming down the stairs, so the pic was blurry.

    I have one of the $50 off coupons that came in the last catalog. I don't think I will use it by the expiration date (end of Dec, iirc), and I hate for it to go to waste. Anyone in the market for full price firsts? If so, shoot me a PM and I'll let it go for super cheap [​IMG].

    Before everyone gets all upset about selling a coupon... I was being sarcastic. By super cheap I mean $0.

    Haha! Without really getting into it, my personal health is a bit of a mess right now. Even so, yesterday was a comedy of errors of which the frying pan was the least concern. Fortunately I have a wonderful family, wonderful music, and wonderful footwear to distract me. And it's CHRISTMAS SEASON!!


    I think most would be hard pressed to tell the difference IRL. I think oxblood looks the most like crup in my own pictures. See below.

    Haha! Yeah it's an illicit covert activity for sure. My neighbor's in south Brooklyn probably think I'm a putz every morning.

    Peppercorn - sounds like you've had some adversity but a great attitude. That's a good thing. Take care of yourself!

    Stopped by the Plano, TX AE store today. My plan was to buy the Bartlett in both brown and walnut. And then I saw the walnut.

    The "burnishing" on toe of the walnut was NOT good. It looked like someone had streaked some brown watercolor paint onto the toe and left it at that. It looked careless and without the least thought for aesthetics.

    The brown, on the other hand, was magnificent. To paraphrase a Tribe Called Quest, they felt like buttah. And looked rich and luscious. To me there was no competition. The brown was the only choice.

    I was expecting the opposite, based on SF's preference for the walnut Strand. To each his own, I guess.

    I'm not a cordovan guy. But wow. The color. The glow.

    Those are calf. Pretty sure those are the Oxblood Eagle County/River from one our the many GMTOs.

    The closest shell color to that would be Color #6, which Horween hasn't made in a very long time. Color #4 is probably the next closest. You could also get some Color #8 and lighten it in the sun or with a lot of wear.
