Haha I knew I'd get shit for them. It's my first week still feeling out the dress code...don't know if I can go no socks with a suit every day. Maybe if Friday's are casual ? But I'm guessing it's suit every day.

Yeah it is. A lot of people I've spoken to have said that the independence collection shoes fit them true to size, but I wouldn't want to feed you information that isn't true for me personally. I have those two pairs of Harrisons, 2 pairs of Jeffersons and a pair of Rutledges and all five fit me snug with 8D, and I'm an 8.5D.post #60068 of 707376/3/15 at 6:28pmThanks for the replies! Couple more questions.... The part where stitching is in pic1, is that called welt? Is that replaceable?Quote:Originally Posted by newbee
Hello Forum, I am a newbee who was able to score an AE seconds Strand. The right foot has some defects and I wanted to check the following:
1. How significant / severe can the damage be?
2. Can it be repaired if needed with re-crafting etc?
I am uploading the pics below and both of these defects are on the right foot. Thanks in advance!
Defect 1: Bad Stitching around the inner perimeter of the welt (I guess that's what it’s called, is that right?) above the heel.
I can see some strands of thread coming out. Do you think the thread will break in after some wear?
Defect 2: Uneven margin around the stitch underneath the sole.post #60069 of 707376/3/15 at 6:35pmQuote:Originally Posted by Count de Monet
Navy Maritimes arrived today. As others have noted, they really are navy, not dark blue, could be mistaken for black indoors. My high instep notices the somewhat low vamp but not enough to change from my regular 10.5E's. The Horween CXL is better than the leather in my 9 year old Sperry Gold Cups (and 10 x better than that on the current Gold Cups). The padding is perfectly acceptable (to me) for a boat shoe (though I've never owned a Rancourt).
A steal at the sale price. I'm really tempted to get a red pair, too.
I called in my order Monday afternoon to the Plano store. They were drop shipped from Wisconsin Tuesday with 1 day FedEx shipping at no extra charge. YMMV

Those look awesome! Is the length pretty consistent with your other AEs?

To be honest, you are nitpicking at this point and people are indulging you in it, I suspect because theyve quickly picked up on how paranoid you seem to about purchasing AE seconds, for what amounts to a steal of a deal, on a pair of shoes that look better than 98% of whatever other garbage most men wear...even with their supposed flaws...suit yourself...but if whatever defects those are supposed to have are unacceptable to you, I'd strongly suggest looking at some of the higher end brands in order to find a vmore or less perfect pair of shoes.post #60072 of 707376/3/15 at 7:42pmQuote:Originally Posted by harlequin782

Thanks.. I'm not nitpicking anymore. I'm happy with my shoes now.post #60073 of 707376/3/15 at 7:49pmQuote:
Yes, I think so. Heel to ball anyway.
I'd say ideally I'd need an "E and a half" in a 5 last shoe and these feel the same way. A little snug but the 10.5 EEE's were too loose. I figure between being CXL and essentially a blucher, they'll be fine.post #60074 of 707376/4/15 at 3:46amQuote:
I had basically dismissed the Maritime/Kirkwood since I figured I'd have the same trouble I always had with boat shoes - meaning if I go down a half size, I'm touching the front a little and going TTS they're way too big. That plus high arch would ruin the fit. But I guess if you're saying they're a little long plus you're ok with your normal width (arch-wise), I'm finally going to cave and try the Kirkwood. I'll post how that works out. I have a really hard time with most of the loafer styles where high arch prevents me from even getting the shoe on in my normal size - but since the Nashuas were ok for me, I'm thinking CXL will probably work too.post #60075 of 707376/4/15 at 3:53am
