Looks great. Will be my next order on the next ShoeBank sale (Father's Day?).

Also....why chose a shoe with visible tiger striping to go on a promo pic?

 

Interesting, I hadn't picked up on that.  Either it's another mistake, or we now know why so many firsts have that striping (i.e., AE doesn't really consider it a defect).

I'd love a Heritage or Broadstreet with linen in place of the bone leather.

 

By the way, here's a link to a golf site that has 2nds of various AE golf shoes for $99.95.

Broadstreets were the three standard offerings (Black/White, Brown/White, Walnut/Bone) as well as a webgem Brown/Walnut (which doesn't have the wheeling detail the others have, slightly annoyed by that). Strawfuts are Black/Black Mesh, Brown/Brown Mesh, Brown/Navy Mesh, and Brown/Linen. Not terribly flexible, but I picked most of them up on clearance as well as during some crazy Amazon sales.

Hey, shell fans:

There have been three horses found in my area and, as of yet, have not been claimed. Should I put a word in for you guys?

Hi Guys,

Just bought a pair of AE carlyles. Wore them 4 times so far, and it seems like the creasing is a bit much. I've attached some pictures. Is it normal, or does it look excessive?

Thanks in advance.

I also picked up a pair of Carlyle's this past weekend (in dark chili) but have only worn them once. Questions for you:

 

1. Are you using cedar shoe trees?

2. Are you wearing the shoes two days in a row or more?

3. Have you conditioned and polished the leather prior to wearing them for the first time?

4. How often do you sit with your "feet bent" at your desk (assuming you have a desk)?

1. Are you using cedar shoe trees? Yes after every wear
2. Are you wearing the shoes two days in a row or more? No, at least a couple of days apart
3. Have you conditioned and polished the leather prior to wearing them for the first time? I didn't prior to the first wear. Could that be why?
4. How often do you sit with your "feet bent" at your desk (assuming you have a desk)? I always keep my feet flat at my desk

My plain toe shoes of a different brand had the same issue.  Creases seemed more pronounced in them and quicker than it shoes I had for much longer.  The differences in patterns of creases is probably how you walk but I would think these are quite normal.

I don't know if we can link to outside sites on this Forum but I know there is a good article about shoe creasing by this snob, if you search on Google.

In addition to the list mentioned above shoe size can also effect creasing. Keep in mind creasing is normal and dependent on the leather.

Looks within a normal range to me. All my shoes crease in the exact same places across different styles and lasts.

They're going to stand out more on plain toe shoes because there's more tension across one piece of leather, and there's no stitching or perfing to mask it.
