I have another pair of allen edmonds that has seen more wear and worse condition (i wore them in rain and even slush) and the soles havent separated. When i reached out to allen edmonds the customer service rep kind of implied that it was because of wear.I think its more than that because the left shoe is fine and has about equal wear.

Yep, its due to wear. The stitching had been completely worn through on the toe and it then has the ability to separate. Time for a recrafting.

Not that one specifically, but I do know that the First Ave shearling boot should be arriving soon! 


That will likely be my last purchase for 2015.  Any guess as to actual timeline?  Any material deets?

I would put a Topy or other sole guard on the shoes and wear them as you otherwise would.  Given the style and the waxy leather, I would imagine you'll wear them in slightly more rugged situations than you would a more traditional dress shoe, so any concerns about the Topy making it look more casual would be nullified.

On the bottom of one of the shoes, they fully missed the channel for a few inches in two places when they stitched the soles onto the shoes.  Wondering if you guys think this warrants exchanging them?  Note that these are firsts, not seconds.

 

The channel is there to submerge the stitch below the level of the leather so the stitching doesn't directly wear on the ground, so ordinarily I would think it'd be a bigger deal.  But as you can see in the pic, this is on the back of the sole where it arches up to the heel, which hardly ever has the chance to come into contact with the ground.

 

Would you send these back or just wear them?

 

Cheers,

Kevin

I wouldn't worry. One of my shoes has this, and it hasn't been a problem. That part of the sole doesn't get as much contact with ground as the toe and ball.

Good deal. Someone should pop on this.

Just received my CAVANAUGH SNUFF SUEDE.

 

Certainly better color than the bitter chocolate suede. Much lighter and anything darker is probably too dark for suede loafers.

Nice collection noob!

Picked up a pair of Allen Edmonds Hillsborough's online new in box, but something is off with the heel. Is this normal/can it be easily fixed through just wearing them?

The heel only touches the ground at its most forward point. It will lay flat-ish if I put the shoes on, but I feel the added pressure by the most forward point of the heel. Any thoughts?

I think those have gotta go back. 

 

I've seen a touch of heel-raise, but that looks a bit excessive, and if you're feeling that bit of pressure towards the middle of your foot...call me crazy, but excessive walking in that situation just seems to be a setup for foot pain. Which NO ONE needs.

Send those back for sure. I have to be honest, those are a really ugly shoe.
