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.

    Allen Edmonds "Shaker Heights" tweed-and-leather boots. These are new (outsoles and heels and uppers show no wear), but they do have a defect--they're seconds: there's a crack in the leather along the back strap of one of the boots. It's about 0.5"-0.6" long, and I've taken a picture. You might wear the boot with the crack, or have it patched by your cobbler. It's certainly a defect, though, and I figure that's worth $200+ off of the retail price.

    The boots are a dark brown calf with partial tweed uppers. I've polished the calf with cream polish, revealing one of the poorly planned realities of these boots: when you polish them and then brush them, you'll inevitably get some polish on the tweed. I've done that to a small degree and tried to clean it off, so the tweed is also not pristine.

    The boots are leather-lined with leather insoles. They're fully welted, and feature partial rubber or nylon outsoles.

    The boots are tagged a 14 3E, which is a 14 Wide. However they only measure about 14" x 4.4" on the outsoles.
