http://www.rudsak.com/en/women/roya-black

bought this about a month and a half ago instead of a mackage.
i think mackage is played out and doesnt have a lot of winter styles. everybody has the same jacket lol

this looks a lot better unzipped. the fur will not be cut off and goes all around. its also very versatile i can do a 2 different styles with that jacket and the fur comes off as well.

good investment! super happy and didnt need to spend over 1g for leather sleeves

i have the rudsak male bomber.
it was 20% off. It was lamb skin, down inside, rabbit and fox fur for the hood.
at 1100 tax in, couldn't pass up a good deal.

mackage just didn't have the features or the quality of leather so i passed and bought the rudsak

Where do you guys get your Allen Edmonds???

Harry Rosen only had about five or six styles, Freedman shoes locations are apparently Town Shoes locations now and don't carry it, Manuel Fernandes just closed door.

I'm going to Ingledew on Thursday. Thanks to the exchange rate, getting a pair online through their website would cost a lot more than purchasing locally. Also checked Amazon already...

TIA

I just placed my order for an Allen Edmonds Strand in Bourbon last week.
Had it shipped to Blaine so I'll be going there to pick it up this weekend.
I ordered a factory second from Shoebank and they had really great price for that particular colour which was fine by me because I thought walnut would have been too bright for my suit anyway.

Just punch in your size and it'll filter out whatever they have in that size and will show which shoebank location has stock. Just call them up to place the order. Just FIY they did add WA tax on my order. After exchange it's still much cheaper than to buy locally.


I can't wait.

I'm not going to bother with Shoebank. Friends and coworkers have had mixed results using Shoebank.

A few of them had very noticeable scuffs that couldn't be removed, and one co-worker had the wrong color shipped to him.

Now you got me worried.
I've read great things about their factory seconds so I thought it was safe to give it a try.

Got my walnut Strands when they had a factory seconds sale, it was $199 USD + shipping/tax. I don't remember if it was via shoebank or their main website. Totally worth it though, there's a tiny spot (about 0.3-0.4cm diameter) on the leather which I'm assuming is the blemish that made it a second. Otherwise it's perfect.

Unfortunately I sized mine a bit too narrow (got D when I'm supposed to be E)... I loosen up the laces as much as I can and wear thin socks :P

If i do end up getting another pair it would be in bourbon colour!

I have two pairs from shoebank, minor imperfections in the outside heel. Otherwise, beautiful broguing and no other noticeable flaws. Would buy again.

I'm sure there's nothing to worry about.
The positive experiences outnumber the negative ones for the people I know.

On the plus side, AE's customer service is second to none

If I can't find anything locally, I'll wait out until mid April when they are expected to have an anniversary sale like they did in April of the last two years.

Hows the fitting with AE's? Would you guys recommend I go into nordstrom for a fitting first, or are they pretty standard?

If there only $180 USD....

Give this a try? You can print it out and find the right size width for yourself.

Definitely fit in person. The widths make a big difference. You don't want any bowing on your shoes or improper fit to the cork sole.

i bought my AE online, typically in most "fitted" brands i'm a 10.5 EEE, so rolled the dice on a pair which was on sale my exact size. Fit like a glove luckily lol..

Dunno if you guys who bought the Dayton service boot still linger in this thread, but what are your thoughts on them now you've had them for a while?

Mine are just over a year old now in the Nubuck. Cant say i'm overly impressed for the $600 price tag.

After rejecting the pair they had in stock which was close to my size, as i wanted the custom made pair, the pair they made for me is slightly too big.. the width is right but the length is at least a half size too big unfortunately..

I wear them without any insoles and have from the beginning as they have the true leather insole stitched into the boot. This insole is suppose to mold to your feet over time and i feel like mine has, however with the slightly too long boot, i have a hard time lacing them up tight enough to really feel like they are wrapping around my foot.

occasionally when i wear them for long periods of time i feel like i get slight shin splints as well from having to kind of "pick up" the boot with my step to make up for the oversize..

Have never used their boot oil on them because it takes away from the nubuck finish, have been mainly using an aerosol mink oil which seems to hydrate well without rubbing the material down.

Will take some pics of the wear when i have a sec.

Overall the boot is far more fashionable than my RedWings 877's, but the RW's are like slipping on a pillow compared to the Daytons imo.

still nice, and the build quality is probably worth it.. however at the time if the initial fitting i just wanted them and probably didnt take enough time to really try them out after the 5 month delay..

How much room are you talking about and what kind of socks are you wearing? If the bend in your foot lines up with the widest part of the boot then you should be fine. You're supposed to have extra toe room with boots (at least 1/2 inch and as much as an inch and a bit).

Foot volume, in-step and arches even the way you lace them can also affect fit.

Thanks but I'm an 8.5E. No money to spend on another pair of strands considering I've worn mine about 5 times in the last 12 months.. Have yet to buy dress pants that go with it haha

I was really close to buying a pair of vibergs but brooklyn clothing co (located in alberta and van) were absolute dicks about it so i told em to fuck off and decided to grab a pair of daytons.

I got mine in the brown pull-up horween leather and absolutely love it. I got mine custom made but for some reason the owner was in the shop that day and felt generous and gave me a 20% discount. Worked out to be a touch over 500 after taxes (I opted for the dainite sole which cost extra). The only complaint I have is the tongue is extremely thin.... the leather is much thinner than the samples I was looking at, and when I asked about it they said it's like that and there's nothing they can do. Wasn't too pleased about that but it hasn't bothered me at all since that initial day.

Mainly wear them with those merino wool socks from Costco (as my boots are also a tad bit too big; for reference, I'm about 8.5E in AE's, 9 or 42 in almost everything else and I got these in a 7.5 EEE). They fit great with the thicker wool socks on and are extremely comfortable.

I saw the charcoal nubucks in stock when I was ordering them; thought they looked amazing in person but I wanted this pair of boots to be worn 'rough' and I didn't think the nubucks would age nicely.

10/10 would cop again.

@hondaracer, try wearing thick wool socks. It helps with my boots which are a touch too big.

I've never been high on Daytons either.
