    Florsheim Imperials, scored from the bay. Better fitting last than any Barrie I've ever tried.

    X-post from the carmina thread. This pair of boots is absolutely amazing. Can I expect them to darken over time? Any opinion is appreciated. Thanks!

    I would not expect them to darken appreciably, particularly if you avoid laying on product.

    Those boots are absolutely fabulous.

    Yeah, if anything with wear and no product, I'd suspect they'd lighten.

    LLEN EDMONDS CORDOVAN PSA

    My name is James Pietryka and I am the Manager of the Allen Edmonds store on State Street in Downtown Boston. On Tuesday November 18th from 4:00 - 7:00pm, we will be hosting the Cordovan "trunk show" for the Boston Market.

    For our event, we will have a limited amount of rare shell cordovan colors: Navy, Green, Deep Dark Brown and Natural Brown. These special colors will be limited to 25 pairs per color for following styles: Park Avenue, Leeds, MacNeil, Dundee, Strand and Patriot. The $125 custom charge will be waived for this event. In addition, you will also be allowed to customize the outsole, insole, lining, eye stays and various other specs for no additional charge. Any shoe not listed in the offer can be had with the additional $125 custom charge.

    We will also offer to everybody the chance to order any of our current dress welts in either Burgundy, Brown or Black Shell Cordovan for the standard Cordovan prices ($650 shoe/$725 boot) with the custom fee waived.

    Please feel free to get in touch with me with any questions as I am now accepting preorders for this event. We expect to have some leather samples in store soon as well.

    I hope to see you all at the event. If you can't make it, just email or call and we can put your order in.

    Best Regards,

    James

    [Crosspost with AE thread.]

    Burgundy Shell Kenilworths today. These were too tight in the right foot, but some wearing and serious stretching has made them quite comfortable:
