Whats the make up of the Gramercy? Is it chili calf or dublin?

Cognac Dublin, I believe.

Of course, that means the size is 9US, which may or may not be a little too small for me. Gonna try the size tester printout thingy on the Allen Edmonds site.

 

On another note, how do these soles look? I can't figure out if there's a lot of wear or if it's just the angle.

 

But you've used both those soles?

Pud buddy, I wish I had your restraint! You're developing your AE collection at a much more manageable and planned out pace. I just have this sugar-daddy who keeps throwing rediculous deals my way, and I'm WEAK! He finally tells me he's "sold out" now, so my suffering may be over...I hope. I dread the next PM saying "hey, found another pair you'll love, in my storage locker". Then the sweats start, paypal transfers begin, transactions complete, shipment tracking numbers exchange, and I have to execute stealth trips across to the states to my parcel depot, where the clerks now KNOW ME, and have my parcels at the cash desk as soon as they see my car drive up. Does this sound like a man in need of an intervention? I worry...

I honestly wake up in the morning, first thing deciding which shoes I want to wear..."feels like a cognac dublin McTavish day today", so in my mind I start deciding which pants will complement those shoes, and what shirt is clean and ready to wear with that ensemble. The whole process starts around the shoes. My latest acquisition - shell MTO Promontories has me wishing spring would slow down, so there are many more opportunities for boots before summer kicks in. Suedes, casual lightweights and light colours can wait dammit...I'VE GOT BOOTS TO ROCK!

I'm a sick sick man, and appreciate coming to this thread to hang out with men of similar afflictions. THANK YOU ALL!! (Tongue somewhat planted in cheek...somewhat)

This sounds like a serious case of shoe enabling from this shadowy figure. You need to disassociate yourself from this nefarious smack peddler and get yourself into some shoe rehab, bro! The sweats?! Maybe it's time to pair down, sell some shoes, etc. What size are you? 11.5/12 or so I hope. If so, I may be in the market and able to help you out. Let's start with those Shell Prommies...

Hey all, 

 

I just purchased a pair of AE Fifth Ave shoes. The seller described them as "Like New". Am I just being picky or do I have a legitimate complaint? They look like they are seconds with a "No Warranty" stamped on the sole and inside of the shoe. Also, the soles look like they are worn more than what they should be for something claimed to be "like new".

Yes Bl@ster, you truly are a shadowy figure! Lol. If I can get myself checked into shoe rehab, and go willingly, I'll be WEARING the shell Prommies! You'll have to pry those beauties off my feet...Wifey's away on business next week, so I can show them some serious TLC - brushing, Reno, brushing, Reno, brushing, cordovan cream, brushing, soft-cloth-polishing. I fear shell is probably the worst addiction you've only recently introduced me to...my life as I used to know it, is over. Next, it will be Aloha shirts, I'm sure...

did seller disclose that those are "no warranty" shoes? I believe seller should disclose all the important details in his/her description page.  

post #43868 of 70737

No, they did not say anything about "no warranty". 

 

This is their entire listing verbiage:

 

These are a Like New pair of ALLEN EDMONDS "FIFTH AVENUE" Oxfords.

 

 

 

Retailed for $345.00  

Size: 10.5 D

Color:  Black

Was this off the bay? A lot of those sellers don't take into account how worn the welt stitching or heel caps are when they list. They may list as excellent condition based on the upper and then you get them and you find out you need to go ahead and get a re heel or resole from the get go. My experience anyhow.

That's exactly what I believe happened. How close are these to needing resoled?

You could resole as soon as most of the stitching has been ground down and you start to see swirls. Your 5th aves aren't at this point yet, however the  "like new" will be pretty subjective. That said, I'm not sure how much no warranty AEs sell for but I think you can obtain 5th ave seconds for a little under $200 via the shoebank so you might account for that should you decide to keep since $345 is the value for firsts.

Thanks, I agree with you. These shoes are neither firsts or "like new" so I'm going to request a partial refund.

I always post and ask for photos of the soles. 

post #43874 of 70737

How much did you pay for them? Yea, definitely ask for a partial refund of buy a second quality NEW pair for about $199.

Depending on how the uppers look, I'd dispute for a full refund.
