Join the club. The ONLY short wing Derby shoe made now is the LGA, and that is not half the shoe of the Player, IMHO. Long wing shoes galore, but AE is treating the short wing like the ugly red-headed stepchild. (With apologies to all the ugly red headed step children on the forum, you know who you are.)

Excellent PC pics, gents! Thanks for keeping up the tradition.
A question for those of y'all with woodlore epic twin tube shoe trees: do you size them the same as the JAB/AE full toe trees or do they run longer?
I typically wear 11D in AE and have a handful of the JAB trees and 3 woodlore epic twic tube trees, all in L.
Uncompressed, the JAB trees are substantially longer (maybe 2"), and have to compress quite a bit to fit in my shoes; they could easily fit a 12, perhaps a 13 (but could not go much smaller).
In contrast, the woodlore trees are only slightly compressed to fit my shoes; they could cover 10-11 easily, perhaps an additional half size on either end.
Some modest sample variation with the JAB trees, very little with the woodlores.
Hope this helps!post #66966 of 7073711/11/15 at 12:46pmpost #66967 of 7073711/11/15 at 12:50pmpost #66968 of 7073711/11/15 at 12:51pmpost #66969 of 7073711/11/15 at 1:02pmQuote:Originally Posted by BackInTheJox
Ok, so this morning I got a little antsy and decided to go ahead and give these a once over with some isopropyl alcohol and elbow grease (in the burnished areas). Below are some pics (the lighting isn't identical to the original pics but you get the idea). Obviously this is only my first go at it, and I will have to even the color out. The photos are after I stripped much of the black color and then gave them a quick once-over with some AE cleaner/conditioner.
I will continue to try to feather some of the burnishing so it all blends better, and then after some more conditioning, I am thinking of using some AE chili polish to slightly darken the leather and help it blend into the burnished areas.
First time having a go at this, so it's obviously not perfect. Any suggestions/criticisms are welcome.

Jox - any additional thoughts after your Rutledge de-burnishing now that you've had a chance to wear them for a while? I have a pair with the same issue (though not as nuclear as yours were) and am thinking about doing the same thing. Would you recommend the procedure you outlined, or would you do anything different? Many thanks!

Have you considered going down a half size in length then up to eee - I have had this success with Daltonspost #66972 of 7073711/11/15 at 1:32pmpost #66973 of 7073711/11/15 at 1:32pmQuote:
Yes, they are darker. definitely not black, though. Very lovely color.
I would go for the E. If they don't break in, then have them stretched.post #66974 of 7073711/11/15 at 1:33pmQuote:Originally Posted by peppercorn78

for the E is it just tight? for me on the 511 when the it is too small my foot overspills the footbed so stretching does not help there but if it is just snug in other parts then I agree with Pepperpost #66975 of 7073711/11/15 at 1:36pm
I would think grey/olive/wine colored chinos would work fine and I have not seen it in person so unless it is really pointy then probably go great with some dark indigo jeans...
I happen to think black shoes and boots with blue jeans is a perfect match...in the words of Jean Girard "You Taste of America"
