I had to replace my pairs THREE times and they're STILL uncomfortable as hell and cause blisters/rubbing.
Quality control has gone to shit, IMO.
My park aves are fine, but I will definitely not be buying AEs from now on.
Had an interesting find at the Allen Edmonds Outlet store in Port Washington earlier this afternoon. Walked in there to check out the factory seconds and the closeouts that they had, and out of curiosity, inquired about the impending return of the Moras. The gentleman working in the store told me they had a few pairs in the back, at least one in black and one in brown.
As luck would have it, the brown pair was in my size (10.5E). Price was $249 for firsts. Scooped them up immediately and really enjoy how they look. Pictures below.
