    Allen Edmonds brings back the MacNeil and the Leeds

    Unlike some other recent restorations (McTavish, Players), these appear to be on the original last. At least the MacNeil is on the 97. The Leeds is on the 511. I can't remember which one it was on originally.

    Available in oxblood and walnut, and the MacNeil in black.

    I'd have had them in dark brown and chili. And I say this as someone who probably prefers oxblood and walnut. Certainly to chili. But dark brown and chili are probably more rugged and less pretty than oxblood and walnut. Neither the MacNeil nor the Leeds is a pretty shoe, so I'm not sure either goes with a pretty color.

    Apparently, the University is coming back soon, too.

    Let's hope for some more restorations this fall. Maybe a McGregor, Elgin, bourbon, merlot, Jefferson, original McTavish, and original Neumok. Plus some of the colors for them - natural wax, navy, green, etc.

    I would buy another pair of University's though the 333 last is pretty narrow.

    +1. I love a U wing, but they do pinch my left pinky toe ever so slightly.

    Yep, for a while AE only offered the 2.0 versions which were different. Seems like quite a few people preferred the original over the 2.0

    Hmm, I only own one pair of longwings - a pair of black and white Doc Martens - so perhaps it is time to expand the shoe collection again. Time to wait for the next sale.
