Thanks, It did take a while for mine to get made. 6-7 weeks I think.
Thanks! In that case I'll have to wait for an 8E or 8.5D.
Hopefully I will have them before the Superbowl :-) otherwise they may not get much wear until next season.
Do the SEC proud vs Wisconsin today
thanks and gig' em
Try taking the shoes to a cobbler and having them stretched in the area where it hurts.
If it's actually the ball of your foot and not the sides (i.e. right size) then you're probably just breaking in the corkbed. Maybe try a thin insole or thicker socks. I can't say I've ever had that issue, but sometimes the sole and insole need some wear to break in and conform to your foot.
Agree. I could never find a Sanderson in brown, but I did get a black one. It's a sleeker version of the Macneil IMO.
+1. Those look great. IMO time is what distinguishes good from poorer quality shoes. Cole Haan may look relatively nice on the rack (albeit to the untrained eye), but after a few wears they look terrible. Better quality footwear (AE and up) gains character over time.
Excellent. Isn't there an old thread of well worn but well cared for footwear? If not, there needs to be.
Opps. I'll blame the teeny screen phone. I meant it as a compliment, however. In my defense, I think the Dublin leather arrives with a sort of "instant character" right out of the box. New or not, they have a look that's different from conventional new smooth calfskin and very much to my liking.
For two years now I've kicked myself for not jumping on the Urban Daddy x AE "Gramercy," basically a Macneil with Dublin Cognac. There is a "phantom" pair in my size on the Shoebank but no one can ever find it.
Below is @AE83 's Dublin Cognac MTO in a Magregor (5 last) version. Very similar.
