So you reply right below a new style saying how much you liked it and respect it that AE is pushing the envelope with new styles. But you don't like the shoe, we're supposed to believe. Yeah, that makes sense. Next time AE comes out with another ridiculous fugly shoe, I'll post how much I love the new styles AE is coming out with but that I really dislike the shoe that made me post that. There's no way my reading comprehension for your convoluted logic can be as bad as your taste level.
Cry me a river, guy...lol..
By relative extension according to your own statement here, your reading comprehension level can only be as non existent as your taste level then...both of which seem to have only been supplanted by some middling hybrid of ignorance and hypersensitivity toward the thread comments of others. It's regretful that your lack of reading comprehension has led you to project onto others' comments, a sentiment that was never stated by them. You can let your emotions get the best of you over what you've mistakenly perceived as the shoe preferences of others here if you like. But if its of any consolation, if I did like that particular shoe, I would certainly clearly say so without giving pause to what you or any other bellyaching sourpus felt about it...lol.. But as it stands right now, for you to use your own dearth in reading skills as an excuse to mischaracterize other people's comments just makes you look, well, sad.post #66408 of 7073711/1/15 at 10:16amQuote:

A question for the experts on lasts and such (especially those of you who own/have tried on the Shaker Heights):
How does the overall fit (and in particular, length/width) compare between the 73 last (Shaker Heights) and the 511 (Dalton)? I actually own both boots (several in each), but in different sizes/widths. I have a few Shaker Heights in 9.5D, and a few Daltons in 9EEE. Both fit me fine (the 9EEE is slightly better, and a 9E might be perfect, but it's not a huge difference for my foot).
There is a Dalton in the shoebank in 9.5D that I am thinking of buying. I know, I know, fit should take precedence; however, 9.5D Shaker Heights fit me just fine, and I'm wondering if I'd be able to make do with a 9.5D in the Dalton. If the Dalton is longer than the SH, probably not. Is the 511/Dalton known for being particularly narrow? Wide? Middle of the road? It's hard for me to put it in perspective since I've only ever worn extra wide Daltons (which are, by definition, wide).
Thanks for helping me answer a silly question!
I wear a 9D Dalton, primarily with dress socks (after also trying 8.5E and 9.5B). My Shakers are 9.5D and fit comfortable with medium to heavy boot socks. Hope that helps. *But I would say when comparing the two, the Shakers are a little wider.

In any case, AE offers a really broad product line, has great hand-made quality and terrific customer service. What your definition of "pushing the envelope" is has nothing to do with anyone else but yourself. You could both defend your positions and be right enough - why be rude? Personally, I think they're doing a nice job of trying new things while staying true to who they are.
Off to Beijing tomorrow - taking my AE x Brooks Aberdeens and my Alden Indy's. Will post a few pixpost #66414 of 7073711/1/15 at 4:53pmQuote:Originally Posted by harlequin782

Nice high school essay there. The bottom line is that you praising AE for their fugliest shoes was a mistake. Own up to it and quit wasting our time with your faux wisdom.post #66415 of 7073711/1/15 at 5:14pmQuote:Originally Posted by gjdgjdgjd
2 pics of my new McClains in dark brown. I already have a pair of dark brown Norwhichs which are part of my regular rotation so I polished these several times with the merlot shoe polish. It daylight they do show a purpleish hue.
I may need to strip these down completely and try to redie them. I wish AE had a merlot shoe cream. I see they have a burgundy...that may be a place to start?
The burgundy shoe cream (dye heavy) does indeed have a purple - red tint to it. It's what I used to recolor my strandmoks:post #66416 of 7073711/1/15 at 5:43pmAnyone know what the deal is with the half-liner in the new shoes? My Fifth Aves from last year's RDA have a regular leather liner, but the ones from this year have a leather liner and a half-liner with the shoe name toward the heel. Is this supposed to be for comfort? And if they're going to do it, I really wish they line it up properly.
That said, the finishing looks damn nice. Shame it seems to chip, any ideas how to fix that?post #66417 of 7073711/1/15 at 7:47pm
Quick question folks... been wearing my Gobi chukkas off late in the rain coz of its dainite sole.. sometimes I do get my leather wet in the rain.. is that an issue? I understand leather + water is not good combination. Can someone suggest what to be done?post #66418 of 7073711/1/15 at 7:52pmQuote:
FWIW, based on my conversations with my SA about changing soles in the post MTO world, they seem to differentiate between the lug soles that require cementing to a midsole and the ones that can be GYWed directly. They won't let you swap to a cemented lug sole on a model that doesn't already have one. Not sure why though, perhaps the manufacturing process is different enough that it causes higher error rates and thus expense.post #66419 of 7073711/2/15 at 4:37amQuote:
