    The AE Aberdeen may be a good choice for you.

    Thanks for the suggestions but I want a boot because I will be wearing it when it rains/snows.

    You are not alone. I keep all my shoes in their original box in the flannel bags with shoe trees in them.

    Here are some of my AE's

    Lands' End still offers the Bayfield which has a rubber sole: http://www.landsend.com/pp/mens-allen-edmonds-bayfield-captoe-boots~228873_-1.html. You may even be able to snag this boot as a 2nd from the Shoe Bank.

    Another option is To Boot New York's Kilburn. It was on sale for $250 during Nordstrom's Anniversary Sale in August.

    Wasn't someone advertising on B&S that they wanted to buy Edward Green shoe boxes at one point?

    Do you let them air out (with trees in) before putting them in flannel bags and boxes?

    Geez! That looks quite terrible and would lake me way too long to get ready in the morning. These are AE after all--which grated are great shoes but cost about as much as a nice dinner and I wouldn't cry if something happened to them. The only shoes I keep in the the box are my tux shoes as they are new and have never been worn.



    I have 5 or 6 EG boxes that I have yet to throw away.

    Yes, usually about 4 hours - take them off and put shoe trees in when I get home from work, box them up before going to bed.

    I think you're on a roll for new AE slogans. Last week: AE -Great rainy day shoes for when you don't want to wear your nice shoes. This week: AE - They're great shoes and all, but only cost as much as a nice dinner and won't make you cry if they get ruined. [​IMG]

    Do you disagree with any of these statements? I don't see your point.

    Patek is classic on SF, and under protection, if I recall correctly :)

    It all depends on your perspective. The answer is no if you have the cash to drop $500-plus on shoes. The answer is yes if coming up with $250 for AE's is a major expenditure and buying your first pair of nice shoes is a source of pride and accomplishment (as it is for many in this thread).

    Patek: the humor lies in your obliviousness to the second group's perspective, not to the truth or merit of your statement as it relates to you. I know you meant no ill will, and I have none towards you.
