Seriously, its just the way the shoe is made and it has been present to one degree or another since the shoe was created, as seen on my pair. (The lighting covers it somewaht) I just view it as part of the shoe's personality and I do not know if anything can "fix" it because it is just the way it is.

Really? Did you by them like that? I've never seen that before and I even have another pair to compare it against. The leather in that area also feels rougher which made me think water damage

That is the way they came from AE. I have one other pair at home and they are the same way. Hey, I just thought that is the way they look, but feel free to send them back if it bothers you.

Short wing bluchers called Madison Park. Are these the players 2.0 for Nordstrom?

 

Sure seems to be the players 2.0 pattern. There were traditional calf, black, walnut, etc, planned for this spring. I wouldn't be surprised if Nordstrom had an "exclusive" shoe made.

I might be interested. What's the condition and price?

I also own four pairs of Daltons. Walnut, chocolate, dark chili, and walnut shell.

Oh and some Long Branches in dark brown grain.


I have a boot problem.

Sounds like you're gonna need to track down the chili and oh so rare black versions wink.gif

OK Gents - 


Shell cordovan MTOs are back on!  The stores are doing a limited run of any shoe in shell cordovan with NO UPCHARGE!  Only in black, brown, and burgundy.  I ordered mine from South Coast Plaza - a black Strand, brown Cornwallis, and a burgundy Shelton (like Bl@ster).  Let the MTOs resume!

I found a pair of black ones on ebay but will probably pass.  I do like the look for a black boot, but in general I just don't wear much black.  The chili ones are nice, might grab some one day but I've got plenty of choices at the moment!

Wow, awesome news.  Any word on welt/edge choices?  Is it truly "MTO" or is it just factory specs with shell instead of calf?

AE seems very aggressive in pushing the envelope and creating new styles..I'm liking it...I can respect that

A black strand with one eyelet at the top? Wha?

That looks an awful lot like an LGA. Nordstrom calls the Road Warriors they carry by names, not the airport letters.

Nah, this is the LGA.  They have all their Road Warrior shoes listed by their airport letters.

Did they intentionally make the back panel out of wrinkled/crappy leather?  Is that some sort of stylistic choice (like the green eyelet for the Bucks' jersey color), or just choosing a poorly made pair to photograph?

 

Edit: Nevermind, I see it's sharkskin.
