    I'm 32 and bought them when I was 29. I'll be the first to agree that they aren't the hippest shoe in my stable, but they're a good standby and very versatile on the casual end of the spectrum. I've rocked them with everything from a tan linen suit to flannel-lined jeans. The brown outland leather ages better than any other shoe I own so far. Disclaimer: at first I only bought them because precisely zero other goodyear-welted shoes were available on the planet with a rubber sole in size 14AA, but since then they've grown on me quite a bit.

    In other news, look what came in the mail today from allaboutshoes:

    They fit just fine over the thicker socks that I'd wear with boots anyway, they are absolutely flawless, and the finish matches my shell wallet perfectly. :bigstar:

    Now I just need to put in the time and elbow grease to get their finish up to Cold Iron standards... :slayer:

    The Cottonwood was designed to compliment the Neumok line.

    Hi mate, I have both pairs. Leather quality on these are better than AE . The finish on these RLs are flawless and at least 3/4 times better than AE. Hard to believe they are made by AE !
    [COLOR=FF00AA]Are the Saunders the same as the Malvern?[/COLOR]
    No
    **Just keep in mind these RL shoes are made on a really narrow last. It could be either AE 2 last or a special last just for RL. I always go half size up on most RL shoes. The Saunders I went 1/2 size up and still a bit tight around the toe area.**

    Why does age seem to come up so often?




    Either you like them or you don't.

    Are your Neumoks suede? If not, I would consider the Equus Leathers belt. I think price comes to around $80.

    Winston S, the Navy Neumok is Leather (For suede, they have it in Snuff and tan suede)
    Here's a picture of my Navy Neumoks and short video review.

    They're burgundy. I look forward to seeing them when the sun eventually comes out. :)

    Your wife is right - the WIlbert is too old manish. Here's why:

    1. Beefroll on the vamp
    2. Cushion thingy along the opening.

    You're better served going with the Delray - it's sleeker and more modern.
