    Thanks, yeah that makes sense. I might eventually have the walnut Strand and McAllister bourbon in my rotation.



    Is the Amsterdam a LE model or something? It's not on the AE website.

    The Amsterdams were sold here for a limited time. They seem to just be a different name for Bourbon McAllisters.

    The Amsterdam was a special order via UrbanDaddy. I think AE will eventually offer it, not sure when though. It's pretty much a Bourbon McAllister.

    Could someone remind me of the groupthink on the new 333 last?

    For the 5 last I already size down from my normal 10.5 E to a 10 EE. Do I need to make another adjustment for the 333, or is the 5 last sizing going to be the same.

    Probably a moot point, as I haven't noticed many 2E widths on it, so I'll have to experiment between E and EEE, but thought I'd ask.

    A request: does anyone have pics of Neumoras in the wild they could post?

    I actually had a pair on order, with the intent of using some blue polish on them just as you mentioned. I went to pick them up when they arrived at the AE store and thought they looked great color wise. But I wasn't quite ready to take them home. (Honestly, I ended up getting a pair of walnut McClains on closeout and a pair of Ashbury boots in the new saddle leather. ) But while there, I tried on the Parkway in the grey and actually liked it better than the Park Avenue in grey. That will be one of my next purchases.

    So, I am looking at getting the Parkway in grey, the Larchmont in bourbon, and the Haight in brown. That should close out my AE collection for the foreseeable future.

    My current AE collection:

    I've noticed most people on this site don't use heel taps for their AEs. Not a good idea in general?

    Great looking collection! Must've taken you a good 1/2 hour to take them all out and line them up.... now only to put them back again [​IMG]. Very envious

    My wife has banished me to using the closet in the secondary bedroom. So, I use the entire room as my room. I oftentimes take out several pairs to clean and polish them all during the same sitting. It's my own form of aromatherapy. :)

    Get shoe racks and go vertical - it takes up much less space and at least creates the illusion you have fewer pairs than if they are all spread out on ground level. :D

    I keep them in their respective boxes, stacked on the upper shelves of the closet. They are behind closed doors, too. If no one sees them, then they don''t exist!!! :nodding:

    Any interesting concept, even if deceptive. :slayer:
