I also have those hopefully on their way soon. I have read the customer reviews extensively on the allen edmonds site, and many have had a similar problem. Some people had some luck changing the laces to others that are a bit more like the ones on some of their dress shoes. Seems like the leather treatment would be the cheaper, and possibly more aesthetically pleasing option. good luck

Hey, does anyone know the fit comparison between a split toe delray and a clifton?

post #10715 of 43081

I have to say, those look like something Al Borland would wear on Tool Time.

Also does the squeaking on the Norwich go away? It's a little disappointing to pay a lot of money for a pair of shoes to have this kind of problem...

As for the squeaking, using some Reno or other conditioning product across the tongue should make it go away over time.

Mine squeaked for a couple of weeks until I worked enough lubrication into the area.

 

The Norwich are easily one of the best plain toe shoes in my opinion... would love to get the brown shells but can't justify it since I purchased the burnish brown calf.

 

Also, don't forget that you may have to resort to using a bit of talcum powder if the squeak is coming from the tongue area.  Allen Edmonds actually has a few responses about this in their Q&A section on some shoes.  They consider it a "normal" occurence since there is a texture difference between the leather upper on the tongue and the leather lining.  They say that when two different types of leather come in contact, squeaking may result.  I have a pair of Sanfords that have a sqeak to them, and after trying to eliminate it by rubbing in extra conditioner and polish it still wouldn't go away.  After carefully examining them, I noticed that there is a slight up-turn in the top beading on the corner of the tongue on my right shoe.  I think it is the slight bowing up of the top beading that is creating the extra contact and thus causing the sqeak.  I'm gonna try some talcum powder next time I wear them to see if it does the trick.

The shoes are nice. The little dumbbell in the corner = lol.

yes.  I got in on this deal last time they had this going.  I received 3 shoe racks and the quality isn't that great but for the price i feel it was worth it

post #10723 of 43081

can anyone comment on the JAB shoe racks?  The consensus seems to be that when the racks are stacked together, there isn't much height space between the racks.  I'm not sure if that's the case with your typical AE shoes (strands, pa, 5a, etc.).

post #10724 of 43081
I'll tell you when mine arrive. Just ordered 6. I know I've seen spacers to go between them when they are stacked vertically, called "extenders" on amazon.

The shoe trees are the exact same Woodlore shoe trees that AE sells.  This is a great deal!
