Cordovan cream comes in colors so I would think that would be OK - as long as he used cordovan cream.

Just brush them a lot and see what they look like.

MTO? Sorry I am a novice when it comes to the shoe game.

Made to Order. It used to be that AE had a MTO program for the members of this thread to customize any AE shoe to almost any spec. If you want to see examples of what came out of the program please chek out the AE MTO thread here

It's unfortunate the program has been canned.

It seems like a bunch of this russet Essex was quite wibbly-wobbly. No wonder they're closing it out with this model. Why couldn't they have used the worst boys on the back or shaft though? Maybe they figured the vamp's gonna crease anyway...

Fine looking dOge you got there....

At least on mine it seems they did use the worst where you said:

Black Normandy vs Black Long Branch. I realize they are two very different boots but I think either would work in my situation (jeans and a black polo for work). Which one would you go with and why?

I'd go with the Normandy as it seems like more of a year round boot. If your weather will make use of the Long Branch's lug sole, go that route.

Ran across of a small hoard (4 pairs) of the mottled grey Park Aves.  All size 9D.  Anyone know what the AE name of that color was?

 

LOL: Anyone.

I think you're referring to grey cloud. They did something similar with walnut as well.

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.

they will be fine. Give them a good brushing often and wipe with damp cloth when needed. Next time ask for no product.

Will it be another year until AE has a sale on shell again?

post #68022 of 70737

I'm not an expert, but I'd be furious.  That looks terrible...

They looked much better before. They don't even look like shell after. They were burgundy shell and he used something brown on them??? Makes no sense.

Someone recently expressed interest in a pair of natural tan McTavish so I thought I'd post a pic of my two-year old pair. These were recently treated with Renomat and went through one recraft (AE mistakenly put on a single sole instead of the double oak sole). They have been treated only with saddle soap over the years:

 

 

Same shoes from a year ago:

 

Hit my beloved Jeffersons with some Renovater (sp?), AE neutral cream polish, and Saphir neutral wax polish on the toe box:

 


Same process for my tan Ashbury's but used AE walnut cream polish:

 


Also some pics of a few other AE's I love:

 

My Amoks. For their first recraft I think I'm going to get the original Mojave sole

 

 

Long Branch:
