Are there only a few who ordered them? I've been in hiding from this thread since the Massdrop order (maybe a little before) because I have been buying too many shoes lately. I realized that staying away from the thread wasn't helping as I still bought a pair or Sandman slippers and Addison loafers.I got my MD Chukkas about two weeks ago. I opened the outer box and then decided to leave it at that until Christmas. I'm going to wrap them up and that'll be my present to...
Must have missed this if it was discussed originally, but are they not supposed to charge tax at all? Is MassDrop in NJ? I'm NJ and got charged the tax, but assumed it should be like that. I don't think I ever paid tax on shoes as they're considered clothing, no? If it was a mistake, i'm happy with an email and refund. That makes them even tastier!-James
Same here! Quite proud of my restraint, actually, but as I normally buy seconds, I didn't see anything that screamed "buy me now before it's too late!"
I've had that fight in my head. . .but I think i'm a balancing act with that now. I used to always be quantity over quality and then recently moved to quality first. I'd like to say i'd prefer to have 5 really nice pair than 50 nice pair, but the fact of the matter is that I like variety. There are so many different styles that attract me that I wouldn't be able to afford $500+ versions of them all. I like quality, I like a deal and I like variety.-James
I get a lot of wear from my Stockbridges. They were the first pair of AE that I got as "beaters." I think I paid about $40 for them (second hand, of course). They're my go to shoes for wet weather, but I find myself wearing them a lot more than that. They're VERY comfortable! The only thing that irks me about them is the sole edges...The faded black rubber stacked with the leather just looks weird while i'm putting edge dressing on. Once it's time to resole, any...
The back of the white sole on my suede Strandmok 2.0s gets all mucked up (from driving). I'm going to have to try the magic eraser!
It's safer for me that I have no idea how many pair I have! (but congratulations!)
The toe box on one of mine looked like the side on yours. You can find pics a few months back in this thread. I looked quick, but couldn't find them. Ultimately, they're seconds and returnable. You can't really expect more that a refund (assuming you haven't worn them) in most cases. I was just really on the fence about them as they were VERY comfortable and were kind of OK as rough looking shoes. . .but that's not what I bought them for. I asked if there was any...
I love my Clark Streets but my normal size, 12b, was a weird fit. They were comfortable, but felt a little long and got bowing around the ankle while just standing around. I actually sized down to am 11d and they fit me perfectly.
Nice laces! I also did a Freiburg Friday for the rain. The creasing on mine is crazy enough that I got a credit towards my next pair to keep them. So they're my beater boots that sneak into my normal work days on occasion because, lets face it, even with all the awful creasing, they're cool looking. Ever thinking about darkening them a bit? I'm considering darkening mine to hide a bit of the wrinkle.-James
