I just heard from a very reliable source that William and Jonathan Church have completed their purchase of Cheaney Shoes. I expect some real nice things to come from the new owners. More to come....

We use Master's All Purpose. The beveled waste, hidden stitched re-craft is $175.00. $200.00 would be the same...
Can't say I do. It's a Norwegian welt, stitched through the side of the upper then down through the sole. Nice boot.
I just got the new "Fall Collection 2009" catalog. It's the best AE catalog I've seen to date. The layout is well thought, the pictures are a bit larger, most importantly, it's much more informative than past catalogs. Good reason to stop by your local AE store and pick up a copy.
The soles were channeled and hidden stitched. Sounds like the flap that's pulled back over the stitching peeled back. All purpose quick dry will do the trick.

Quote: Originally Posted by billiebob I just noticed a dime sized hole in the center of my CJ for polo Darltons' sole. I can't believe I've worn them through this quickly. The outer layer of sole is worn through and there a cracked leather midsole material showing through. I have over 30 pairs of shoes and have maybe worn these shoes 20 times. The rest of the soles are fine, as are the original heels and toes, as I use the kiwi plastic taps on those....

But i'm not sure if the round edge is something that is manufactured or can be done by the cobbler... JR soles are at least as good and in most cases better than the original maker's. The rounded edge that...
