Well, friends, my Carlyles have arrived and are suffering from the famed AE welt connect area issue and some strange wrinkles/bubbling alone the vamp/quarter seam. The belt also has some noticeable dents along the top line. Hopefully they can take care of this issue promptly and will send them out before my return arrives. Otherwise...absolutely love the shoes. My new favorites for sure.
Very nice. I have them and love them. They are not as roomy as the shoes i have in the 5 last so i tend to not wear them very often, I should change that and really break them in.
