1. Hi. We moved systems, and because it was impossible to achieve feature parity between the systems, we opted to archive the old B&S threads but allow users to read them so that they can put them into our new B&S system.

    There is a support thread if you have any issues.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    Fantastic, lightly worn - fewer than 10 wears - Allen Edmonds classic black wingtip boots that are sadly a tad too narrow for me. Tons of life left, and always kept with shoe trees. I really hope that these dress boots go to a great new home wear they will age beautifully. These are boots worth treating well. Retails $425, rarely lower than $300 on sale, Yours $250 shipped ConUS OBO. These are firsts.
    A note about fit: These boots are built on AE's 511 last that is more generous in the toe compare to their popular (longer and narrower) 65 last, on which their Park Avenues are built. Typically I wear a 8.5EEE on the 65 last, and thought that this size would work for me for the Daltons. Unfortunately, and especially with a thicker sock, these were a tad too narrow. I would suggest these boots for someone who is a standard 8EEE, 8.5E, or perhaps a 9D (considering I typically wear 8.5EEE or 9E) on the 65 last. As another size comparison, I wear 8.5D in Red Wing Iron Rangers, which are great on me. These boots would be slightly narrower than those.
    More than happy to answer any questions or provide additional pictures.
