Eight pair. Like them a lot. All very good quality,good fit, and comfortable.
Leeds / Black
Norwich / Brown
I have one pair of black Danburys.
After reading about these here, I picked up two pairs at the AE store in town (I was surprised to find Noo Awlins had one) -- a pair of the lighter tan Sedona loafers and one of the Wilbert in the rust-tinged tan. I may see if I can scoop up at least one more pair on eBay.
I bought my first pair around 1989, black calf Arlingtons, long since worn out and tossed. At the moment, I have the following:
Arlington, dark brown
Grayson, merlot and burgundy(corrected grain)
Saratoga, medium brownish color, unsure of the proper name
Park Avenue, merlot
Concord, dark brown
Harvard, navy blue, of all things
I did a quick inventory, and discovered 14 pair of Made in USA Johnston and Murphy, 3 pair of Alden, 3 pair of Wright Arch Preservers, 2 pair of Footjoy, and one pair each Freeman, British Walker, Grenson and Dexter. That's just dressy leather-soled shoes...penny loafers and casual shoes are another issue altogether
Only three, so far: two older pairs of wingtips (pebble-grained black MacNeils and brown "Tom, Dick, and Harry"s) that I picked up last year, and an almost-new pair of black Park Avenues that I'm wearing for the first time today. Used AEs are slowly replacing my old Ecco City Walkers, as the injection-molded soles on those delaminate and/or wear through.
Got seven so far. Been collecting them for several years; Park Avenue, Dalton, Macalister, Bayfield, Yuma, and 2 older pairs of a casual shoe that I cant remember the name of. I really like AE shoes, for the money they are the best to be had in my humble opinion. Good stuff and their customer service is the best there is.

Is it true that Allen Edmonds makes the Wolverine 1000mi Krause boot? I just got a pair and love 'em!
Have 4 pair and as for the style I like best, what ever pair that I have on for that day. Can't go wrong with any of them.
Yes we just ran out of them. I work at the Freeport Maine store.
Is it also true that Alden are making certain models?
To my knowledge we do not. There are a few weird slip ons that I have never seen that are made in Puerto Rico but as far as our average shoes that you are going to see if you walk into a store are gojnf to be made at our factory in Wisconsin. The two exceptions are the Pisa and Urbino which are Italian made.
I am still trying to find my first pair of AE, I am looking for wingtips in a cognac color and or any spectator combo...
26 and still growing. Most are oxford. Including five different colors of PA, three different colors of McAllister, two colors of Strand, and two colors of Chester.
They all have good and bad and the fit differs a lot. But generally the older models have better leather. I am more interested in their vintage styles now.
Btw, the best leather are a pair of brown Byron and A pair of walnut Birmingham. Fifth Avenue looks good too but the leather is not on par with the Byron.
Just returned two pair of Whitney. Crappy leather and lousy workmanship. No wonder why the cheapest oxford in their sale. Save your money for something else!
