This is my only Christmas special - The Holiday
I got my First Avenues in the same size as my other 40 pairs of AE (several different lasts) and they fit great.Chris
I think that is fixable. I had a pair that got a scuff similar to that - maybe not as big, but similar. My local menswear / shoe guy told me to get AE Shoe Cream in burgundy - it has a high dye content. Dab some on the spot (just the spot trying not to get too much on the surrounding area) and let it sit about 30 minutes, then wipe it off. After doing this 4 or 5 times, the scuff gradually darkened to match the surrounding area. I then polished the entire shoe with...
I'm from a part of the country where I think I know what they are talking about - concealed handgun license.
I am also in OKC - I hear you, it can be rough. Maybe it's kind of like the "Rolox" watches you see for sale on the street corner.I usually go to Teena Hicks Company downtown for my AE's.Chris
Inaugural run for the new brown country grain First Avenue. I had to squeeze them in between the -3 degrees with snow Friday and Saturday and the 70 degrees forecast for Wednesday. Never a dull moment in Oklahoma. These were very stiff and squeaked a lot at first - I had to tell my co-workers they would hear me up and down the hall way. More comfortable and less squeaking by lunch and very comfortable and 90% of the squeaking gone by the time I went home. Chris
Yes, I have the brown grain MacNeils and Dundees and both squeaked a lot the first couple of wears - and that was after I put some AE Leather Lotion on them before the first wear. But neither one squeaks now.I also received my brown grain First Avenues yesterday and they squeaked a lot when I tried them on and walked around the house.Chris
Due to the generosity of my wife and son - via an AE gift card for Christmas - here are my new First Avenues. Chris
Here are my 2016 AE's Brown Country Grain First Avenues were purchased in 2016 but won't be here until 2017. Chris
My wife and son got me an AE gift card for Christmas. I had to scrape up a little change to make up the difference, but I have a pair of brown country grain First Avenues heading my way. I really like the country grain / dainite combo and I won't wear these as dress boots. Luckily the brown grain was still available in my size. I will post some photos when they get here next week.
