  • They were supposed to be their old brown shade (bought about a year ago, well before the Coffee shade) but arrived in something inbetweeen dark brown and the bourbon shade they occasionally sell. Then I accidentally got some olive oil drops on them that wouldn’t come out, so I tried to compensate by darkening the boots using dark brown & black shoe cream. After all that, I ended up really liking the shade that they turned into.

    • AE First Avenue boots today, unfortunately covered in winter gunk and not at their best (can’t stand wearing my Sorels another day more than I have to). Love these though, the Scotch grain can take on a surprising glow with some TLC, Dainite soles make them versatile and the fit is perfect.

I'm normally not a fan of white soles either, but they are pretty thin, more off-white than white, and do not stick out much on the brown shoes. That said, I wouldn't wear them with anything more formal than jeans and chinos.
        I just saw on the AE site that the white seems to have been ditched—good call.

            Wow! Love those.
            WHY ARE THE GUYS IN SUITS HERE? HAS SOMETHING GONE WRONG?

              Thanks Joseph. GMTO via Skoak from a few years ago I couldn't pass up.

              • Like many others, I've soured on AE recently. That said, I really love these boots. Back before I figured out my correct sizing, I picked these up on an end-of-season sale. I ended up selling them after a year or two because the fit was off (my heels would be in pain after a while), but always reminisce when I see people post pics of them. They're a great casual boot option that pairs so well with jeans.

                          • My other blue suede shoes—Donald Pliner wingtip oxfords. Gotta leave the home office and run over to my daughter’s and feed her cat while she’s outta town. Kitty better not step on these either.

                              Is it just me or does the broguing on these look rather phallic?
