I've seen this bandied about a bit, but what does this even mean? What is the "proper" way to tie your shoes?


I think it means tying your shoes so that they don't come untied every few minutes.  I can usually do this when all of my fingers are working properly.  Some people decide to avoid the whole business of shoe lace tying and get loafers or monk straps.

Sounds crazy but this works, even on my Topsiders.
When you are tying your laces most people loop the lace over the top and pull it through the bottom, then tighten them down.
Instead, try doing it the opposite way. Loop the lace through the bottom and pull it over the top, then tighten.
The motion of your foot flexing as you walk will keep the laces tied tight instead of allowing them to loosen.

Happy Friday everyone! Walnut Daltons for me today. Everytime I upload pics I am reminded that these need some maintenance.

I'd say stay true to your AE size. I have low arches, and was worried about too much volume, so I figured with the stretchability of the CXL that i would drop down in width. So, I ended up going from 9D to 9B (the only AE shoe I have in a B width).

Also, if it helps, I did this for the Maritimes and the Kirkwoods. The Maries fit great out of the box; the strap on the Kirks was tight at first, but loosened up after a few wears. Both are worn with thin no-show socks.

 

In terms of usage, I prefer the Maries with shorts only, but feel the Kirkwood can be worn with pants also.

Gentlemen,

 

I have a newly recrafted unicorn up for sale in my sig.

 

Sad to see them go as always.

 

Natty Cordovan Strands in 10EE.

 

Thanks.

I've picked up a couple of AE boat shoes recently and have gone TTS (true to size) on their boat shoes. I don't own the maritime, though.

A couple of questions. How does the 97 (lace up) last compare to the 114 (loafer) last for sizing? I wear a 9d in the 97. What should I shoot for in the 114?

 

How is the breathability of the rubber soled shoes?

post #68006 of 70737
Appreciate the comments once again. I will go TTS. I will be wearing no show socks

Random:

When I use my shoe trees the shoe feels tighter the next time I wear it. I'm assuming that happens when the moisture is drawn out of the leather. Anyone noticed this?

I'm going to use the HDLP on my Long Branch boots this weekend.  Should I clean them off with a wet washcloth first?  Then do I just rub the HDLP onto the whole boot?  Is there a certain process?

I generally wipe my boot clean and then brush...I wait 24 hours then apply the HDLP and yes onto the whole boot...I always tread lightly with the product as it is very easy to add a second coat but no way to undo a very heavy helping of the stuff.

Ok you shell experts, I need some feedback. I purchased my first shell shoes, Fairgates, and took them to my regular shoe guy for some eyelets and, heels and edge treatment. When I got them back he had also used a brown cream on the shoe. I asked him if he knew they were shell cordovan and he said, Yes." I don't know whether to complain or say thanks. I was under the impression that the appearance of the leather was supposed to be untouched other than some cordovan cream. As these are my first shell shoes, I have no idea what I am talking about. I don't know if what he did is OK or if he "just painted over gold leaf." He is usually very reliable and maybe I am just speaking from total ignorance. Comments please. First, the picture of the shoes before the work and then the appearance now.
