Would also like to get inputs on whether the fap on the outsole and welt on the left shoes toe should be a concern

post #47447 of 70737

So, with some help from the board, I agree that the flaw is insignificant.  My bigger issue is the fit.  My first try with a 2 last.  I have low arches and a wide foot (these are 8 3E).  The front of the shoe feels a little tight and the heel slips when I walk.  I fell that the tight aspect will loosen with a little wear but I am concerned about the heel slippage.  The 8 3E works for me in the 5 last.  Is there a size correction that anyone can recommend?  Or is this last just going to not work?  The good news is that the other half of the 2-fer is a MacNeil 5 (on the 5 last).

Beautiful shoe and I would not be happy with whatever is going on in the front that shoe...seconds I would be ok with not an MTO...AE should be able to fix that I would think just a resole in essence..

Wow, that quick. Shell will be next then.

I guess the RDA sale may bring them down to about the same as the normal price, maybe a bit less. Anyone's on the fence, jump on them when you have a chance at the RDA sale

They don't even have a seconds mark on the sole! (unless AE puts the mark somewhere else on than on the Redenbach sole?) The only thing that I think could be wrong with them is one shoe is a lighter color than the other. Perhaps it was on display in the sun while the other sat in its box? Anyway, I am not worried about it and will be keeping them for sure.

On the other hand I wasn't as impressed with the Kinilworths. The seconds defects on them aren't bad, but the fit is off and there is excessive bowing at the ankles.

Does anyone know if there is a problem with sending one pair back for a refund in a 2 for $X sale?

I've had two shell 2nds that didn't have marks and a third that did. The first two. Burgundy shell Dalton's and Dundee didn't have glaring faults. The brown shell Jefferson had some stray stitching and the piping on the opening had an issue. Nothing you'd notice at a glance.

Glad to hear the McGraws look good. I haven't heard notice that they didn't have my Kenwood so it should be on the way. Hoping for a good pair cuz $150 is insane deal.

I haven't returned one from the 2 for deal before but I think it won't be an issue.

Yeap. Everything else dress shoe $20.

The Dalton 2nds jumped more. $40!

No way I'd buy a 2nd at retail 2nds price. The price gap is just to close.

Can anyone here please confirm that the 24" Dawhyde laces on the AE website are the correct replacement laces for the Amok and Mojave chukkas? Got my Mojave 2nd's today (can't see any fault on them at all) and want to switch out the contrast tan laces they came with for dark brown :-)
