    yeah, I think they look pretty cool too...not worth an immediate buy at full price, but they are cool looking for a casual shoe.

    I agree that they're pretty cool looking shoes, although I have no idea what I'd wear them with, and they don't fulfill a need that would justify me paying $300.

    Maybe when they're on deep seconds/discontinued discount?

    Anyone know how interchangeable sizes are?
    I exchanged a pair of MacNeils that were 8D for a pair in 7.5E but don't know how the second pair will fit since my true size is 8D.

    I think these are the ones that won the "competition" by those design students. All of their designs were just plain awful, I don't know if any of you had a chance to see them back when the competition was going on back in February-March...

    I bought my second pair of nice dress shoes this weekend at an AE store. I now have the Strand captoe in Walnut and the Neumok in Snuff Suede.

    I had originally intended to buy the Player in brown suede, which I actually thought the Neumok was at first glance, but I think I like this one quite a bit. I can't find many comments on it on SF; do many others have it?

    I'm a little nervous about caring for suede if I wear them regularly. I'm planning to alternate it with my Strands. I think the Neumok seems ok for dress pants/dress shirts without a tie or jacket, which is what I normally wear. Also seems really well suited for jeans. Thinking about getting a pair of white cotton pants after looking at WAYWTD threads that I think it would go well with too.

    You should absolutely get a pair of the Daltons. You'll love them. Since you already have a pair of slightly dressier boots (the 5th streets, which I was looking at also) the dalton is a great boot to wear for more casual days. I wear mine with everything from suits to casual work days, to jeans on the weekends. Here are some pictures of me wearing them:

    I own both of these shoes and love them both. I think the Neumoks are better suited for jeans than the Strands, though I think the Strands would look good too (I haven't tried this yet). Both look great with chinos. I have sprayed the Neumoks with AE spray waterproofer, but they haven't seen any rain yet, so we'll see how this treatment holds up. Here are some Put This On articles about suede: here and here. Enjoy your shoes.

    bucksfan and dsmivtr- thank you for posting pictures of your burgendy shell Cambridge's. Mine came Friday evening and I have been brushing and breaking them in when I find time. What a great shoe, they already are making me believe that they will be one of, if not the favorite in my collection. Very similar to the first pair of shell shoes I admired in black cherry many years ago that cost a month's pay back then, and I vowed that some day I would own a pair.

    Hopefully the third time will be a charm for the Bradley's but I have my "horsey" fix for awhile now [​IMG]

    This is one of the results of a student designer contest they had recently.
    They would work with shorts or possibly linen pants but not much else imo.
