    Very good, z. AE takes over the SF Shoe Damage thread! I'm starting to think I'm at Ask Andy.

    I am not a fan of AE but those are beautiful. Probably the only Allen Edmonds shoe I would ever buy. What are they called? Can you still buy them?

    Straight from the source - Allen-Edmonds Shoe Corporations, Port Washington, WI. ((262) 235-600 - maybe they have more?)

    Awesome AE.

    I used to be an AE fan. I wish they could stick to the basic classic designs like the ones posted by Z and Alan.

    Perfect. You and I have similar taste in shoes! I hate to keep hammering you with questions but..

    What is the brand/model of the black boot?

    Z, if you didn't mention it - I would've thought they were by some German/Austrian/Hungarian maker [​IMG]

    BTW I wonder if there are other models in the AE catalog that they chose to deny the rest of us North American peasants access to [​IMG] .
