Thanks. I might do that and switch to a walnut calf as well.

 

Another question: When I placed my order for the 9.5 E Strand on the AE website, it stated "recrafted/made to order. order now and receive by..." -- can this be returned? I'm not sure what "Shoes ordered through our custom shoe configurator and other special make up shoes are ordered on a no cancel, no return basis" exactly means in AE's return policy.

 

Thanks again.

To my knowledge MTO or Custom shoes can't be returned.  Only stock sizes and styles can be returned.  Once ordered they can't be cancelled or returned...you bought them!

 

See Ya,

Steve

Skip 'em and get the real thing with Bean Boots, which have authenticity and real water-proofedness. I'm not sure what AE is thinking with these "quasi-duck" boots, but they certainly aren't actually considering function.

Those strands can be returned or exchanged. Only shoes that are not part of the regular collection are non returnable.

Tried posting the inaugural wearing of my MTO Strands. Mobile site still won't allow me to post pictures.

Rest assured, they look great.

Well done and very inspiring.  I bet Daltons would look amazing in that configuration . . . (checking bank account balance)

So the back of my heel came out yesterday (shoes are only 4ish months old and I wear them maybe twice a week if that)





Do i have to send these back to AE if I want to maintain the re-craftability? I assume not but I wouldn't want to go to a local place and have them do something that AE would say voided their ability to recraft them eventually.

Thoughts?

Replacing the toplift is amongst the simplest repairs for any local cobbler.  It shouldn't have to go back to AE, and it shouldn't cause problems with recrafting later.

That's as close as the "V" meet on the top.

So, my question is: Should I go with 9.5 EEE or go with a different last (if so, which one would you recommend)?

Thanks in advance.

I've had the exact same problem with all my Allen Edmonds. I'm a true 11D, but in the Park Ave, Strand, and McAllister (all balmorals) I wear a 10EEE. They don't fit very well, but they fit okay. As far as I can tell, most of the AE lasts don't accomodate a medium width foot with a high instep / high arch. Maybe others here can speak to that.

Are we doomed to ill-fitting balmorals from AE? Do I just need to wear bluchers?

The better question is why would you not send them back to AE? If you email this pictures to customer service, they will email you a shipping label and will almost assuredly repair them for free. You won't be out any cash. The only reason to pay for a local guy to do it is if you can't be without these shoes for a couple of weeks. If you really want to go with the local guy, you should email customer service to make sure heal repair won't void the recraftability. I wouldn't think it would, but always safe to check with AE.

That is actually the only reason, I like these shoes and if I can have them done in a day and not screw myself with the recrafting I would prefer to just have it done quicker. And to be honest, I wouldn't expect AE to fix it for free, things happen and I've been wearing them a decent amount - I don't think this rises to the level of defect at all, just wear and tear, correct?

If that's the case, then go with the local guy. I emailed customer service a few years back to make sure that applying a topy would not negate recraftability and was told shoes are recraftable basically as long as nothing surgical is done, like resoling. If you're just doing normal wear, I'd consider the heel top lift falling off after 4 months to be a defect. Very minor, but a defect nonetheless.

Can anyone give me some sizing advice on the Macneil? I have a 10.5EE Park Ave which is a little tight on the top of my foot, and perhaps a little long. What size in the Macneil would be best?
