Hi all, I could have sworn I came across a thread detailing how some guy was removing the black layer from the sole of his shoes (might have been AE's) to expose the wood underneath. Has anyone else read/come across this on either this site or another? I tried to search but my word combinations haven't turned up anything. Would greatly appreciate it if someone could point me in the right direction. Thanks!
i finally got the flaring fixed! i visited an AE store and i told them what my issue was and they suggested the runner's tie/lock lacing:courtesy of ian's shoelace site:here's what it looks like now after i tried it (pardon the socks):i'm pretty happy with the results. my only concern now is the stitching on the sole. do you think this is something i should be worried about? is it a flaw?i'm pretty sure if i topy it, the topy will cover that spot anyways.
thanks, i might just try and return for a different version of the same size.i also tried tightening the laces a lot more, which did help, but didn't fix the bowing out comletely. i'd like to minimize it as much as possible.

yeah, AE customer service just confirmed that there is no such thing as a cordovan shell mcallister. the closest to it would be the cordovan cambridge.
thanks guys for the help. i also reached out to AE cust service for final confirmation. will let you know what i find.
ah. so i guess these 'cordovan'mcallisters are too good to be true huh? http://www.ebay.com/itm/251132571953?_trksid=p5197.c0.m619 i think i see microcreasing in the 1st picture, but it also looks too nice to only be calf. *shrug. with the original soles gone, it's kind of hard to tell.
