    ^^^^ +100

    Which leads me to restate my view that the Strawfut merits SF approval.

    Put me down in the contrarian / red pill / these-look-fugly camp. Sorry, my straw-footed friends.

    I saw the brown on brown Strawfuts in the Plano, Texas store last night. I didn't really consider them until today...Very nice shoes! Since it gets so damned hot down here, I'm SERIOUSLY contemplating a purchase now. Also saw the New Orleans, but I like the Strawfut's more.

    Yea i was at Willow Bend a few days ago and swung through there to check em out. I was impressed and will be most likely getting a pair for summer. I did like the new orleans though too. Guess i need both!

    Matt, I see your pair has a cushioned footbed. Was this factory or part of your custom specifications?
    They look wonderful, thank you for sharing both the photos and video and congratulations on your purchase.

    [​IMG] The footbed is special order like the Rendenbach soles and the use of the #1 last. The ones off the shelf have a regular leather footbed and are done on the #5 last.

    Agreed. Can't swallow them. Just... too much.

    I used to have a pair of these but donated them somewhere along the way. It does remind me though that somewhere in the back of my closet I have some AE blue/white spectator loafers.

    For my fellow AZ residents - anyone remember the AE outlet on Indian Bend? I miss that.

    So is it the use of Nylon that's being objected to?

    I have a single pair on hand in my signature and can also get any other size. Check my Allen Edmonds thread

    I am almost 100% sure that is not linen. Is AE marketing them as linen?

    Edit- I just read they are nylon.

    I can't justify getting these; it doesn't get hot enough out where I am. That said, I've seen these in person. They're really nice shoes.

    There are three nylon mesh versions and a light tan linen version.

    I like the idea but I would need the leather on the linen one to be much lighter - walnut I'd say. Then I'd pull the trigger for sure.

    Still on the fence on these. I like them quite a bit, but enough to reallocate bal boot money? Not sure.

    +1

    Except for the "pull the trigger for sure" part.

    That makes sense.

    I like these a lot but I have essentially duck feet with wide toes, would they build more on that #1 last as a special order like yours? That'd be a shame, cuz it just might be a one shot deal.
