    Was just about to register so I could share the same deal. Couldn't believe they had it in a 38R.

      Can't. Freaking. Wait.
      I keep hearing about the company so I went ahead and put an order in on the Sixteener. Guess ill see what the hype is about in 2 months when they get delivered.

          • My goal of having dress shoes in every major color family is nearing the end! My AE Park Aves in walnut grain arrived today! Don't ask me why they're redder and darker than other AE walnut shoes, but I'm not complying. I was preparing to have them dyed to get them where I wanted, but now I don't have to. >:-)



            I now have black, dark brown, "walnut" (i use the term loosely), and British tan... and each one is a distinctively different style, but each one is dressy. :-D

            Ignore the laces. I'll be going with straight laces, but that's how they came out of the box, and I wanted to hurry up and get them on my feet.

              Alan, are you sure they sent you the right shoes? Is the leather smooth? It looks almost pebbly. The color isn't bad, but its nothing close to any of the multiple pairs of Walnut PA's i've seen.

                Yes, it's the right pair of shoes. They're walnut grain, which indicates a pebble texture. They're like Park Avenue-shaped footballs on my feet! You're right about the color being different, though. But to be fair, I wasn't looking for walnut. I already have British tan wingtip balmorals (which is pretty close to walnut) so I wanted something darker and redder. And that's exactly what I got so I'm not complaining. Looking around online, it seems to be closer to a color most people call "cognac".

                I had to settle for going up a half size since that's all that was left. They fit well around the arch, but there's a lot of room in the toe box. I'm afraid that will wear them out faster since it will cause more flexing, but I think a pair of insoles will.

                    I'm going to need a much higher-paying job if that's the case. :-P Both to afford them, and to quit looking so out of place. My co-workers are already questioning me about how much I make because they think I must be making so much more than them by the way I dress.

                    • First pair of Sperry's came in. Nordstrom ran these for $59 recently, but shipping was sloooooow. Can't complain if it's free tho.

                        They are comfy aren't they? I never thought they would be but once I finally tried a pair, I see why my brother and all his preppy college mates wore them.

                        • ]I really like my Sperry too- I use these to keep them sweat free. They work really good but they do add an 1/8th of an inch thickness on top of the Sperry insole.

                            What do you use? Looks like you either tried to attach something or do a link, but nothing is there.

                            • I guess one of my first post here.
                              Got a pair of Sperry's for walk around and half to agree they are comfortable and now I understand how people go sockless in them.

                              Also bought me a pair of neumoks in brown leather and strands in walnut. Love them completely.

                              • I bought a pair of Navy Cronmoks from the AE sale and although they fit like a glove width wise, I should have sized down a half like all the reviews said. So I made a 25 min trip to the AE outlet to return them and while there I decided to browse the clearance section. I found these beauties in my size and then I looked at the price... 129!!! so I'd be stupid not to right? I returned the boots for 194 and walked out with a better fitting pair of shoes for less. They were a special make up. It looks like snuff suede MacNeils. The box said black calf but that's obviously wrong. I already have like 2 long wing bluchers, brown karagrain meermins, and navy suede LE archers. I will definately make better use of these in Fall because it is a heavy looking shoe. But damn, for 129...Weeeeeeee!
