If it were me I would keep the ones the wife gave me. I think its more likely she will support your habit in the future if she thinks she did a good job.
She did good with those Neumoks. I wear them year round and love them with jeans. Super comfortable too once they break in, which didn't take long for me at all.
Agreed. Unless you totally hate both pair, keep both and brag on her for her selections. It'll be good in the long run. Keep Momma happy and she'll keep you happy.
On the other hand, ... ... you wouldn't be a total slimeball if on, say, one of the pair there were a fit issue. I've heard that happens sometimes. And of course, AE doesn't always have every single size of every model in stock 100% of the time. You know, sometimes things have to be back ordered. Yeah, that's the ticket. And she wouldn't want you to be denied the enjoyment of her gift for several weeks, would she?
"Gee, Honey, out til March. Hey, what if I just pick out something available immediately. I seem to recall something starting with a "D" that I think was in stock. Let me see if I can find that one on their web site. I bet they let me do a simple exchange."
I have the RL Sanderson and Slaton models in suede. Looks like they're currently on sale too! (Edit: currently $235 vs $475)
Beautiful shoe and a great deal.
Congrats and Happy New Year! I wish I could get my wife to get me Shell Cordovan for holidays or birthday.
Am I missing a promo code? I'm seeing $233.99 for the Slantons.
I recently had to return snuff Fullerton's due to QC issues - so I've been eyeing these. $144 would be sweet!
