Bourbon Bleecker St today with scrubs heading into the delivery room and birth of our twins. A boy and a girl!

Bourbon McGregors right out of the box.

 

Not in love with the color yet, but it's only been 5 minutes.

Wow! Congrats!!  

 

These Bleeker Streets are imprinted.  I'd bet that you won't wear them again without thinking about their presence during this day's event.

Congrats! I would put some booties on over them. I've delivered enough babies to know it can get messy quickly.

I have a pair in that color and I love 'em.   Here's hoping the Bourbon grows on you, too!

My new Maritimes just came in from the post.  I like them a lot.  You can't tell from the photos, but the Golden Chromexel has great depth and richness.  Sure glad I pulled the trigger on these.

Thanks everyone. Yes, I put booties on... it was just I was glad I choose some good footwear on the great day.

Congrats!! Looking forward to my Golden Brown pair that is on the way, now get to trimming those laces. They ship them really long for some reason and look way better cut back a bit.

New dark chili Dalton seconds were just delivered today.  I like the color, it's a tad bit redder than I expected.  The blemish making them seconds seems to be the eyelets on the right shoe not lining up perfectly (but probably not bad enough for me to return).

 

Other than that, the issue is . . . THEY SQUEAK LIKE CRAZY.  The leather has sort of a plastic/sticky/glossy look or finish to it, that I haven't ever noticed with AE shoes/boots before.  I put them on and in every direction on every portion of the boot, it just squeaks loudly.  There is no one area like the tongue that is the problem area - it's all a problem area.  

 

I used some cleaner conditioner on them to let that sort of hydrate/condition the leather, and they're drying now.  But even when applying it, it seemed like it wouldn't go into the leather nearly as well as my other AE shoes, as if there was some protective armor coat on them.  Very odd.

 

I'll post pics after I go run some errands (and they've had time to dry).

Paul told us a while back that they're changing the finishing process to make the calfskin glossier.

Hmmm I must've missed that.

 

I'm not sure it's an improvement.

I have as well and they are only six months old but get better with age. They take a shine really well

The second pic is comparing my dark chocolate Daltons in the same size/width. It may not be as obvious in the photo, but the shape of the last seems noticeably wider in the newer ones. Weird.

It's been over an hour since I used cleaner conditioner and they're still wet/kinda sticky.

Yeah, I've noticed that all of my AEs from the past year have been lasted noticeable looser. The shape seems less defined too. Perhaps this is another cost-cutting method, to reduce the number of pairs that split during the lasting process. Or maybe they're cutting down the time the shoes spend on the last further (it's already an impossibly short seeming 24 hours).
