Here is a comparison with a few of my other shells that were out, can kind of tell that it is a little dull and needs some work getting the proper shell shine.
Alden Cigar boot on left and AE on right
L to R: Color 4, Color 8, Dark Brown, Cigar
I was told that AE uses a lot of shoe cream on their shell so it can look dull sometimes. I just brushed them for a 5-10 mins and they look better already. Don't want to hit them up with reno in case I end up returning.
Well my first pair of AE's come today, the Townleys, first impressions are wow these things barely weigh a thing. The finish was not as bright and didn’t have as much shine as I thought it would being cordovan, probably due to the cream issue. I'll post pictures of them tonight.
x2, it's not even a rare shell color.I will be.I would be all over these if they were my size. Really curious about the no wearing for 2 years, he's got some pretty good ball gloves up too, interesting.
