Thanks Mike.

 

I figured calling would be better anyway, then she could just reference the photo that's already floating in her inbox :)

Yea...I tried looking back through my calls because I remember the number she called me from having different last four digits. I can't go back that far, though.

What country?  What are the taxes?  How much was the shipping?  What style of AE shoe/boot?

I had the pair of Mcallisters where the welt was separating from the sole (posted about 3-4 weeks ago).

 

I returned them and ordered 2 more pairs (kept the nicer one).  

 

I have been wearing them around the office for a couple of days and have notice that the left shoe makes a light clicking sound when putting pressure (stepping).  It's more noticeable on hard floor.  I made sure it wasn't the rubber on hard floor sound by putting a paper towel down and stepping.  It sounds as if there is a minor gap where the heel is affixed to the shoe (but I don't visually see the gap anywhere) so when I step down it closes the gap and makes that clicking sound (does that make sense??).  

 

Everything else about the shoes is perfect.  Am I being too picky?

Her direct line is in her E-mail signature from all the invoices that she sent me... :-)

Do you see a gap open up if you gently tug down on the heel?

 

Is "clicking" the best description, or is it more of a creaking?  Creaking can take place from numerous sources, and some go away over time.  A slightly loose heel can cause a creaking.  Are you 100% certain that the sound is coming from the heel?  The tongue rubbing against the uppers can cause some creaking, as well as other areas as they break in.

 

If it's barely noticeable, I wouldn't worry about it.  If people can hear you walking down the hallway and predict that it's you because of the trademark sound, it would bother me though.

The only thing I would add to this conversation is that in my experience, the chili darkens a good bit if you use AE's chili polish.  My chili shoes could pass as burgundy in some shades of light (such as indoor evening light) after many polishings.  They are certainly still a bit brighter and more reddish in sunlight, however.

Thought I'd take the shoes out for a family meeting, followed by some TLC (my son woke up before I got to finish the TLC, but that's another story). Please excuse the very limited photography skills!

Thank goodness for the Long Branches and Obenauf's.

I was replacing my wiper blades over lunch and a giant clump of snow/slush from behind my front tire fell right on top of my shoes.

The water just beaded off, and I gave them a wipe when I got in the office, and nothing....

If anyone is interested, I just got word that my brown shell Jefferson's didn't pass inspection, so there should be at least 1 pair (this is the second remake) of 10.5 Ds out there as seconds.

Yes, but not a gap.  I can see a slight crack when I pull down on the heel.  That was the first thing I checked.  The left shoe (the culprit) has a more noticeable crack/seperation when pulling down on the heel than the right.  

 

I know the sound of the leather tongue rubbing against the uppers so I know it's not that.

 

The sound definitely does not overtake the natural sound of someone walking.  I noticed it on a linoleum tile floor while adjusting my stance (lifting my heel up and putting it down).  Sounded kind of like stepping on a couple grains of sand with new leather shoes against linoleum tile.

I don't think I'd worry about it.

Hi, I'm new to posting here, but I have half a dozen pairs of AEs.   I was wondering if there is a set of AE last fitment rules of thumb anywhere?  I've previously been fitted in an AE store before for the lasts of the model shoes I was interested in.    However, for lasts that I haven't fit on I've been able to find tips here and there.  Has anyone ever compiled tips for all the current lasts for themselves?

 

This is what I've noted for myself.  I'm really not 100% sure about the 3 and 4 last tips.   I'd be interested to know the experience of others.


1-511  brannock size
3-73   brannock size + maybe 1 width ??
4-234  brannock size I think ??
5-65   brannock size  minus .5 to 1 size depending on model + 1 width
7-97   brannock size
