^^ Better hurry while they are still on sale!!!
I know! Allison gave me 'til end of day to get my order in.
I was thinking:
Upper: Walnut Calf
Welt: Chili Flat
Insole: Leather w/purple sock liner
Heel: Dovetail Split
Honestly it would be hard to go wrong with walnut or merlot, but I feel merlot would be way more versatile. If that is what you are going for...
I'll make sure to post pics just for ya haha.
I realize this is an AE thread, but I would suggest you consider looking into Rancourt's offerings for your purpose. Their lactae hevea crepe soles are very comfortable. They have a made to custom program that basically gives you endless choices. Just another option.
I've got an old pair of Haydens, chocolate suede moc-toe chukkas with crepe soles that are incredibly comfortable for walking and standing in.
Can somebody explain to me the differene between heather grain and scotch grain?
Is one leather superior to the other?
Thanks, Ive been looking at some of their mocs as a possible option.
Three words: Plantation Crepe Sole. Feels like walking on a cloud.
I just returned from two weeks in Sicily/Malta/Rome and my AE Mojaves (unlined suede chukka, sadly discontinued but probably available on the 'Bay) were my workhorse sightseeing shoe.
Single leather sole + cobblestone = discomfort.
Thanks for the recommendation. There is a Mojave in dark brown suede still available online for clearance ($147) in my size. I do have the Amoks though so Im hesitating on pulling the trigger as I'm concerned it will take the same space in my regular rotation. But yeah I can imagine walking with those all day long.
Just ordered an MTO.
Black Heather Grain (is this the same as black pebble grain or is this football leather?)
Tone on tone upper stitching
Blue linning leather
Split reverse natural welt
Hope this goes well!
What's the shoe? Suspense...
Quote:Oops.... It's a black McAllister in texture leather.
isn't this something to find out before ordering? I don't believe its pebble grain since AE just calls it grain leather.
