Made a pilgrimage today to the new AE store in Bellevue WA, near Seattle. Great store, and I spent nearly an hour chatting with the mgr Morgan, terrific lady. Took about 10 pics, though only thing up close was First Ave I think. Let me know if anyone would like me to post them. J
I would rub some leather lotion like Bick 4 in it then brush really well...when that all dries add some dark brown shoe creme if it is needed...my guess is after the leather lotion and brushing it will be ok for you
Thanks kahuna. I have the AE leather lotion, do you think that will work? I'm not sure of the difference.
1. Almost everybody's pics here look better than the AE website model photos.
2. Mine was taken this morning during golden hour (1 hr after sunrise or 1 hr before sunset). Makes women look like supermodels, and all shoes like they're cordovan.
3. When looking at the AE site, I noticed the reverse welt is much lighter on the stock photo. Mine look almost black, but I just rechecked them, and they are actually dark brown. I like this better.
4. If you look for these on the Shoebank, they're just listed as dark brown, but going by the style number (4045S), the number matches the Cognac on the main site.
