The AE golf socks are a little tall.


Sportin' the double eagles nicely.  How similar do they feel to the old Footjoy Classics Dry Premiere (if you've had some experience with the classics)?

I kept checking the Shoebank website and noticed that the shoes I purchased had been removed from the website, but that my first choice was still listed as being in stock. So I called that store directly, the assistant manager confirmed that it was still available so I bought it, albeit not at the 2nds sale price.

 

I'm really surprised they wouldn't honor the sale price in this case. From my own experience and from what others have said on this forum, AE has always been very generous in situations like this.

When they offer a 2 for one price sale, shopping different locations creates a bit of a motivation vacuum.  They'll do it, but have strong preference that you find something in their own inventory for that second pair.

 

I bought shell Westchester seconds recently...one vendor said that they were unavailable / already sold.  I noticed the pair I bought was removed from inventory quickly, so I called the location which had the Westchesters and was able to order them.

 

Point is, I think AE customer service views seconds-sales differently, not that they should.  

 

Admittedly, my exposure to AE is < 12 months.

I see two different color representations of walnut saddle black hills online.
Are they the same in reality?

Thanks.

Thanks. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Looks just like different lighting to me. Zappos photos always look a little over saturated to me too...

Without starting another thread, I ordered a tan pair of AE Cronmoks .....

 

What can I use to turn the unconstructed leather to a low sheen appearance? Would hate to get scuff marks on the first wear ...my first 'expensive' boots so kinda paranoid.

 

Thanks!!

1 of 2 from the recent 2fer sale (the other pair were shell Kenwoods which are pretty much flawless...). Used different lacing techniques or each shoe to straighten out misaligned laces and I think it turned out pretty well. Shout out to @Kahuna75 since he posted about these a while ago and sent these back!

I think Venetian Shoe Creme can give you that sheen.

It's Monday here in my side of the world and I'm having a different kind of Monday blues.

Love these despite the creasing below the captoe line.

Done lurking having pursued several hundred pages of posts, my compliments to many fine shoes icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif. I had a question to the group that I'm not really finding in the historical posts...

I got a great buy on a pair of dark brown delrays - but the reason for the deep discount is they are from a display pair and the right shoe is noticeably lighter then the left. I could send them in for recrafting (even with the recrafting fee they are still a great deal) Although they've never been worn, but would that process bring back the original dark hue?

I saw a few posts of recommendations to take to a cobbler to dye or dyi dye . Did those remedies work long term?

I'm thinking my goal is to darken the lighter shoe, not the other way around. I could always renovator them and apply lots of dark brown cream polish - but not sure if that will bring it back. But of course will try that first once they arrive.

Thoughts gentlemen?

I’m walking a several miles a day on downtown city streets in all types of weather. Of course, I wear appropriate shoes when the weather is nasty, but that can’t always be predicted. My leather soled shoes are just not holding up. (I rotate the shoes, but have still had to resole a pair after four months.)

I expect to recraft a few pairs of Allen Edmonds soon. Would the V-Tread (aka combination sole) or Rendenbach be considerably more durable? Anything else I should consider?

Yea, the cognac MacNiel 5. This is my first experience with CXL, but I'm anxious to see how they wear.

I would give it a shot myself. I did it once with an older pair of brown J&M Aldrich, using dark brown and black shoe cream. I rarely wear them so I thought I'd experiment. They turned out pretty well.

I do a similar amount of walking and use topies on all my shoes. They need to be replaced every 4-6 months but that's better than having to do a re-sole. And my one pair of shoes that has a V-tread is more durable than those with topies, so I'd certainly recommend one. As for the Rendenbach sole, I only have those on my Leeds but just this week I was marvelling at how well they're holding up compared to the heels on my Park Aves, Strands, etc. Now I don't wear the Leeds to work so they don't get as much use (and I've only had them about 8 months), but I wear them around on the weekend a fair bit and they definitely don't seem to wear as much on the heel.
