AllenEdmondsCEO said:...Just this week we gave our new balmoral boot its name - The Fifth Street. It is indeed the Fifth Avenue pattern on the #5 last and will available in brown, black and cordovan. It's a fantastic looking boot.
It has some great companions in a boot line-up for next year. We'll also have blucher boot that was worn by the cast in the movie TITANIC, a rugged leather take on a chelsea boot with the tasteful rubber sole of our Executive Collection shoes, and a pebble grain rubber soled chukka on a thicker but still classy rubber sole known as a Titan sole. Lots to like there...
AllenEdmondsCEO said:Everyone - The Fifth Street boot will be more of an ankle height boot, not as far above the ankle as the one in Matt's picture. For that height, we'll have the Bayfield (Titanic movie) blucher boot. The pricing on the Fifth Street will be $325 in black and brown calfskin and $525 in shell cordovan. The Bayfield, with its greater amount of leather and pattern design, will be $350. We haven't planned to bring the Bayfield back in shell cordovan at this point.
