I guess it's possible I should be in a 9.5D instead of a 10D? I have 4 other pairs of ae, and all of them I bought in the store

 

I was fitted as 10.5D. I believed 10.5D was my size all along. Turns out, I fit into a 9.5 EEE. 9 EEE maybe with thin socks.

 

Try different width if you think you have wide feet. Going from 10.5D -> 9.5 EEE was a huge surprise, but in hindsight, it was worth knowing my correct size.

Timeline, I'm not sure. It's been in "the works" for a while. I would imagine that they should be dropping around mid November hopefully. It would be a shame to wait much longer than that from a demand stand point. 

 

And I *think* I remember it being brown grain leather with the shearling lining, and dainite sole with a reverse welt. Who knows what it'll actually end up being though once it lands.

Certainly, non black works so much better. your pair looks like it's closer to cloud walnut than bourbon?

The Thomastown should be a black friday shoe. It's the Kenilworth built on the 201 last, if I remember correctly.

Did you refinish yourself or have a cobbler do it? If so, how did you do it?

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 emailed Allen Edmonds just to see if the issue was normal and they sent me a UPS shipping label and told me to send it in stating the issue and proof of purchase.

I said in the email that I didn't purchase the shoes from Allen Edmonds. Do you think I can use an ebay receipt as a proof of purchase? Sound a little crazy but great if they honor it.

I've always wondered what the motivation/thinking is behind these "new" models for Black Friday (I'm picturing the Carson City boot from a few years ago).  Is it just a lot of extra leather lying around coupled with boredom?  Is it a chance to "try out" a new idea as a sort of test market?

My understanding is that they are sensitive with the price you paid. So if you paid like $80 for it, you might have issues.

Its probably a combination of all three, well maybe not boredom. Black Friday shoes are built on what's called a one and done. Basically they build a single run of them and when they're gone they're gone. Should be some other interesting styles for Black Friday as well.

Thanks. That makes sense to me so I guess I'll just send them back to the guy I bought them from for $75. Would be nice to get a comparable pair for AE but I don't think it's their responsibility to replace them.

Yea that makes sense. LOL I nailed the price at $80 (roundedup!)

So I bought a pair of older 'Lexington' cap-toe bluchers for the express purpose of experimentation. 

 

I plan to:

 

1. Sand down sole edges and refinish antiqued

2. Burnishing the heel and toe areas

 

My question is, what other things should I consider? Remember, these aren't shoes I wear and really don't ever have to be, so nothing is off the table.

Have you thought about experimentation with dyeing? I thought about trying to make a "chili"-like red brown on a few seconds where the color wasn't offered
