I like the extra height that the Epics provide. That works very well with loafers.
Went to the local AE store yesterday to pick-up my order for the black Ridgeway & brown Kenilworth. Didn't leave the store with any of the shoes that I ordered. The left shoe on the Kenilworth had a bad ripple on the upper. The upper on right shoe on the Ridgeway was off-center in the back where the heel is for about 1/2" to the right. I'm SOL on the Ridgeway. Hopefully the replacement Kenilworth will be a keeper.
