Those are freakin' beautiful. Look great with the chinos, but I'm pretty sure they'd look great with just about anything - including parachute pants.

Anyone have any pics of the Cronmok in Navy in the wild? Thinking about buying a pair from the SB but I wanna see what it looks like in photos, other than the website ones.

My first pair of AEs is set to arrive today (Portland boots in bourbon), what do most people do for treatment before wearing? I have a collection of Saphir creams and polishes in various shades of brown, and picked up AEs bourbon polish as well because I wasnt sure my Saphir medium brown would match quite right. Should I hit the boots with some Reno and polish them up or just spray with some Super Invulner?

What are everybody's thoughts on the current WebGem (Jingle Bell Mok Wingtip)?

 

I'm honestly thinking about pulling the trigger on them; it would be a nice holiday shoe to say the least. My SA will honour me 15% off, so I'd get them at $179.99. Thoughts?

 

Also, to respond to Richie a few pages back, whenever I buy something with cash (which is a lot), I put the loose coins on my desk. When my desk gets overrun with coins, I put them in a bag, and I repeat the process. I finally decided it was time to get rid of these bags.

Would probably hit them with some leather lotion wait a day then hit with a light neutral polish...remember Bourbon is a burnished finish NOT a dyed finish...you can screw it up good messing with colored waxes, polishes etc....I would not use Reno on them at all.

To expand on my last post I was referring to Saphirs Renovateur, not the Reno'Mat which is a much more harsh cleaning product. Or would the Renovateur possibly mess up the burnished finishing also?
As to a leather lotion, recommendations?
Thanks for the help!

My right foot fits like the Shaker in that it seems like this shoe was made specific for my foot. Not sure why these were seconds but happy they were.

 

Not mentioned in the description of the shoe is the padded footbed which is spectacular. Being on sale for $221 and with 4 different welt sole combos this may be a no brainer to pay the $80 for a leather change. Easily could see these looking stellar in brown or natural CXL, Oxblood, Olive Suede, or even a walnut pebble grain would look pretty funky.

 

 

 

Olive has been listed by AE as an available color to myself and apparently several others. I'm not sure if they've been spotted in the wild or not. Either way, anyone looking for Olive could at least try asking if it's available without a SMU/MTO fee.

I was told by an SA that it would be available in Olive. I'm pretty sure some pages back that someone else was told the same thing, or had seen one IRL, but I'm too lazy to search for it. I'm sure it can resolved by a 5 minute phone call to WI.

I figure the wingtip design, flat laces and light color of Truffle allow these to be chino ok. They are also my most hydrated and easy to maintain cordovan from AE. Maybe something to do with the fact they didn't have polish in this color to cake all over them before shipping them out...
