Got my Chili Shaker Heights from the sale on Saturday and thrilled with them - added some leather lotion to them then a very light covering with some Neutral AE polish...somehow either I misplaced or never got the Chili polish. Anyway they came with what seemed like some light burnishing on the toe area that faded as you moved up the shoe, more on the right boot more than the left. It looks really nice so when I get my shoe skills up a little more I may do a lite stripping of the finish then use my black brush and see if I can impart a little more.
Really shocked by how much I like these and ordered my standard shoe size - they fit perfect initially with dress socks but have loosened up a touch already so will see how they end up at the end of the day - I have socks for use just with boots which are thicker so I have no fear of them being too loose.
Such great products and service from AE at really stellar pricing - Could not be happier.....well once the Bourbon Daltons arrive I will be.
