I'm of the school that allows the AE polish to come off gradually with wear and application of the mac method. Really excited about these.

Looks fantastic! 👌

Looking good.

Do you have other 5-last shoes? Did you go with the same size? These are on my list, but I am trying to nail down sizing on AE cordovan vs calf.

I have the park ave in calf leather and I went with the same size for that.  I also have the neumoks leather rough collection and I went with the same size for that, too.

After I noticed that the MacNeil pebble grain was recently put on clearance with few sizes left, I inquired at my local store about any remaining availability and was told that there was nothing left in my size and that it appeared that there was also no more leather left to even make one up. Seems that this is a staple. What gives?

 If you camp out on the homepage, they'll flash in a few seconds.

Still can't see. Maybe because I'm using the iPhone and the mobile AE website is loading :-)

For those around here that hit the bars occasionally, what is the shoe of choice to look sharp but you won't care too much if they get dinged up a lot. I'm seriously taking a look at putting down a $20 investment in some crap eBay shoes or something... Suggestions?

I usually wear my brown Wings & Horns/Dayton service booth (basically just a basic looking brown blucher boot) to bars. They get kind of beat up but that's sort of the point and they look good too. Maybe some type of chukka (Clarks?) would serve this purpose pretty well? Although perhaps you're looking for an AE option.

Allison?  "No leather left" does sound fishy.

I load the regular site on my iPad and see the different offers slideshow by, but to actually access the customizer I need to be on my laptop with flash. If you can go into the customizer, you can click on the Neumok there and it's at the promotional price

And I for sure won't be wearing my strands to a bar.

I once had the better part of a pint of Guinness dumped onto my Cole-Haan spectators.  Was at my cobbler's the next morning waiting for them to open.  There's still a faint shadow of the beer on the fabric.  Grrr.  Lesson learned.  (Thank God they weren't AEs!)

Thanks for the response and ideas. And no, you are correct in that I was looking for something other than AE. Don't want to beat up a nice pair of shoes when hardly anyone will notice them at a dimly lit bar or club.
