As I'm awaiting my pair of daltons, i'm trying to make sure i'm equipped to take care of them well. I was just wondering if you brush and buff your shoes every other wear without applying any cream or conditioner? You just mentioned that you should condition and wax every 15 wears, which I already do.

So... the new flannel webgems. Is the Anchorage a model anyone has seen before? It only appears to be available in the flannel, but I like the overall shape of it. I'm not sure if it is just a flannel modification of a different model, or something totally new.

Looks like based on Regent Street?

What size are you?

After the heal started separating from the sole of my 1 day old first pair of Cronmoks, AE was nice enough to exchange them on the spot. Now I've gone back and looked at my year old Strands, and the SAME THING is happening! Is this a warranty/replacement situation, or am I SOL now that this pair is a year old?

There was an issue that AE acknowledges they had with a production run a short while back. I'd call or email and see what they say. But don't worry too much - it's something easily fixed by a cobbler, and it won't affect the longevity of the shoe.

Ah, I thought I might be able to help. I have a new pair of 11.5 D that I'm deciding what to do with...

I just called AE to send some Cronmoks back for repair myself. Here's a photo of the problem with mine. They emailed me a UPS label so I can ship them back tomorrow. Pretty good service so far and the first time I've had to call them. It's nice to know that when something goes wrong service is good. Stuff happens.

I was so pleased with my last AE cordovan order, that i placed an order for the Dundee in truffle (same as cappuccino if i am not mistaken) with a poron insole and natural sole.

Damn, now i understand what all the cordovan chaps are going on about... shog[1].gif

Dundee in truffle is one of their best make-ups. Great choice!

Sounds like a great choice.  Congrats.  Were these subject to the $100 custom charge on top of the standard shell price?
