I do not like the Rochester Shoe Trees. The heel is great because they are wider but the front part is too small and doesn't fill out the toes in any of my shoes. I purchased 4 pair at one time and I rarely use any of them.

Is it just me or are these the most comfortable shoes in the world?

Oh..sorry! Cold Iron also suggested waiting 1 day between coats so it will be a few days!

Just received my first 3 pairs of AE: 

- Walnut Strand

- Merlot McAllister

- Chocolate Dalton

 

The Strand and McAllister fit perfectly, but I have some instep issues with the Dalton. Anyone else had this problem with the Dalton? Do I just need to break them in?

 

Cheers!

Got home from work and my chili Ashtons were waiting for me. Opened them up and did a quick straight lacing, not sure if it will work for me. Here's some pictures:

Strong selection! My burgundy McAllisters may be my favorite pair; they are incredibly versatile. 

 

Is it an issue with tightness? Width? The Strand and McAllister on the 5 last are undoubtedly narrow when compared with the Dalton on the 1 last.

 

In my case, while the 8.5 E is perfect in the 1 last, I need to order 8.5 EE in the 5 last.

Coats of what? What did you apply?

It's not really boot season, but was able to pick up a pair of Wolverine 744's from eBay. I really liked this boot and kept trying without any luck to get a pair from the outlets. If anyone in size 11.5, 12, or 13 is interested there are some available on eBay. These were new first quality, with bags, shoe trees, and a certificate. The color is beautiful in my opinion, and similar to what Cold Iron mentioned recently they don't really match any of my walnut, cappuccino, or brown shell samples from AE. They do look very similar to the brown shell Townleys however. So I'm not exactly sure what the official color of these is called, but I know I really like it.

 

Now to try and make them look half as good as Cold Iron's pair.

I really want a pair of boots but the reality is that as SoCal kicks into summer I would never, ever wear them, and Im not sure burning man is the place for nice boots...

Yeah, that's one of the few nice things about living someplace with actual winter -- tweed, scarves, and boots all make perfect sense at least half the time. It's certainly worth investing in a pair for the occasional trip or cold snap, no? My honeymoon to the UK was in the middle of the summer and I wore boots every day.

It certainly is, but it would behoove me to wait for the perfect pair to come up, which is a pair of chocolate Dalton's right now. An impulse buy of boots I'm halfhearted on would get zero wear at all out here

You've just touched on something I've been wondering, what do you do with your nice shoes in the winter? We have months of snow to contend with, and the idea of even getting out to fill the car with gas in leather soled shoes makes me wince.

Well I ordered all 3 in 8.5 EEE since I have wide feet. So it is really all about the instep. Today in an AE NYC store they told me that by breaking in the pain will disappear. I just wanted to know the 'expert's' opinion ;)

 

So I guess the width is fine, the size is fine, it's just the instep...
