Leather seems really sturdy and I was in a little rain last week, it "beads off" more than my regular calf AEs.

It's my understanding that grain textured leather is (always? usually? sometimes?) corrected grain, which would explain this effect.

Oy. I always wonder how often that actually happens.

Sorry, bro.

What is "rubbing vehicles"?

post #50914 of 70737
When vehicles rub together, causing damage to one or both.

OK, so the first sentence has been explained. Now what does the second mean?

post #50916 of 70737

Ah... the cost! Gotcha.

post #50917 of 70737

Ahh...all this makes so much sense now. Haha....I thought it was shoe terminology.

I still don't get it.

Sorry you missed the Shaker Heights, it's a fun boot to wear. If it's any consolation it's still in production in the brown/olive so you'll have your chance, I'm sure there's another pair on closeout that will show up.

 

LOL.  Good luck with the house hunting.

The shop called a little while ago, and the cost is less than a pair of seconds boat shoes.  Back to checking out the sale!

 

Speaking of which, any opinions on the Shelton?  I saw a few on ebay and many seemed to have serious creasing across the vamp.  Is this common?

Took me awhile too.

 

But, it sounds like...

a fender bender may have cost LeviMay a few pairs of shoes.

Stevie Ray Vaughn was quite the Fender bender.

Although he was stuck in a tin can alley during a texas flood.

I have only wore my Sheltons a few times and they seem fine...FYI you know you can build your own Shelton in the AE online tool right. with no MTO fee

It's not often that I pull out dressy calf bals on the 5 last . . . but when I do I'm reminded why they're an AE perennial:

 

 

This is why it's hard for me to get rid of any of my shoes, even with as many pairs as I have (just counting AEs, around 40).  I might not wear these McAllisters more than a couple times a year, but when I want to wear them, I'm glad they're there!
