I'm a big Allen Edmonds fan. I've had a pair of Park Avenues since my college graduation in 1997 that I've maintained, cared for, recrafted, shined, etc. I still wear them weekly. This is the second pair I ever bought (maybe 23 years ago?). They were brown calf AE Senecas. They've been recrafted twice and this model hasn't been made for years. I'm attaching some pics so you get the idea of what cannot be fixed (I live in a harsh winter climate - and even with overshoes, it's tough). In this case, it's okay to let go, right? They've seen me through a lot - it doesn't seem right to throw them in the garbage! Needing your support. I finally replaced them on Black Friday with a pair of AE Windsors in Chili. Does anyone think I'm making a mistake?
