Those look great! What did you use to dye them?  Fiebings?

Yes, I was a bit nervous after applying the dye at first, because the dye left a metallic shine on the leather. However, after applying polish that disappeared and it became a deep navy.

Do you have any before pics?

Jeez, I want Navy shoes now. Blue suede ones too. DAMMIT WHEN WILL THIS END? I SHOULD HAVE KNOWN BETTER THAN TO FALL DOWN THE RABBIT HOLE!

Off to the root canal!

 

 

 

Out of the box.

 

 

 

Looking good!  I would love to get the Macneils in Shell.  The ones I got in calf for their webgem are my favorites so far.  

 

Kinda sad day with my maiden voyage of my MTO players.  They are so long and narrow the bend point in the toe started in the shell of the toe.  It may be due to the style of the players last.   Its not the end of the world but not where I was expecting to see creasing.  I'm going to try and pad my shoe trees to work that out and force them to bend properly perhaps.  Any suggestions?

Yeah.  I started in April and I'm up to 9 pairs now.  :brick::lol:

Here is a picture from the eBay auction:

Do we think the navy was an improvement?

might be too late, but setting some creases with a pen, further up, may help offset the toe cap creasing

any of you guys familiar with the 6th Ave? I just saw a pair online but don't have any details to feed my interest.

 

 

Last? When it was discontinued? etc.

JungleRoller: looks like you sized up to get the width to work and ended up with a shoe that is too long. The 2 last is a difficult last.

Its the same length as all my others, 11.5. I did go up one on the width to an E though.

Should have maybe gone 11E or 10.5EE/E?

I think the color of the original shoes is gorgeous, but the navy is also amazing. If YOU wanted navy shoes then that's all that matters.

Looks great all the same. Let us know how it stays on. I might want to try this at some point!

The guy at nordstroms offered to give me a new pair or repair them for free. I chose the repair because they are obviously broken in already.

Anyone know if nordstroms repair has the capability to replicate the AE lock stitching? They are going to restitch each shoe.

Look for the two rows of numbers on the inside of the shoe.  The numbers tell the story and the style.

Seeing as they have a close relationship with AE, I wouldn't be surprised if that just sent them back to be factory repaired. Did they tell you otherwise?
