First, the bad news. The rumors were kinda true. Allen Edmonds jacked prices up last night when we rolled into February. The Higgins Mill used to go for $350 full price. Now? It’s $395. Even worse? Staples like the Strand, Park Ave., and Cornwallis are now all $425. Daltons and Liverpools are now almost half a grand, at $495.
I guess a $30 – $50 price increase isn’t as bad as the rumored $50 – $75, but still. Dang.
Second, this isn’t much consolation, but there’s been a bit of a restock of their outstanding Higgins Mill in the clearance section. Just Natural CXL (pictured up top is my well worn, well loved pair) and Black. Brown is full price at $395.
They deliver for simple, heritage boots. You get awesome leather, a goodyear welt, a terrific shape (not too clunky at all) and a Dainite studded sole.
Don’t expect those to last long.
That’s all. Carry on.
