post #11446 of 53249

So I've been waiting 3-4 weeks for my brand new Vernons to arrive from AE. After a long anticipation, today was the day I was suppose to expect delivery from FedEx. However, my tracking says "delivered: left at front porch, no signature required", but I was sitting near my door all day long and even checked my security camera footage. There was no FedEx driver present on my property..... I wish AE would have requested a signature confirmation for their deliveries.

 

I can't help but feel peeved at this whole situation. Someone out there is enjoying my brand new black AE Vernons!! I've already called FedEx to let them know of my situation, and I'll have to wait for a follow up call tomorrow after they check back with their driver. I swear.... the FedEx drivers in my area are dyslexic and always goofing up the deliveries with the address numbers. Anyways, I'll wait to see what FedEx has to say first before I escalate the issue to AE.

 

*End Rant*

I had this same thing happen to me and was growing quite aggravated and nervous that I had paid money for shoes I would never see. However, despite saying they were left at my door, they were not. The driver kept them and delivered them the next day. No worries. Hope the same for you.

I thought I would share my meager collection of AE. I picked up the black PA and walnut Strands during Nordstroms anniversary sale. The CXL Bayfields and Chocolate Daltons are both seconds I bought during the Rediscovering America Sale last month. The defects in both boots were readily apparent to me but I am ok with them; both pairs have issues with the eyelet alignment and some stitching.

 

The whole family

 

My first pair of AE - Walnut Strands

 

Black PA

 

 

CXL Bayfields - I love the milk chocolate color. These are the perfect fall/winter boot if you mostly wear jeans and chinos.

 

 

Chocolate Daltons

 

 

All of my AEs are 10E although they all fit a little different. The strand is tight in the vamp but otherwise fits well. The PA are snug but noticeably less tight than the strands. The Bayfields fit really well right out of the box, the leather is very supple and they felt broken in from the start. The Daltons were initially tight at the start of my instep but it has loosened up nicely; even though the hayfield and dalton are on the same last they fit differently because of where the lacing starts.

I love those Bayfield, why did they discontinue those!?

Wanted to share some photos of the 3-333 last. Love the shoes and they fit perfectly, just not happy with where they are creasing.

Not sure about when to wear and what to pair with, as well as shoe care and durability though.

When looking at something like this I've always come up with the same type of questions as well.

I don't think i am completely happy with they way most of my AE's have creased, but as long as the creasing does not cause discomfort, i have learned to get over it.

The only shoes i can no longer use, due to crease discomfort is the Dalton. Sad, but it crushes and cuts into my left big toe... confused.gif

Wow, the Neumoras are nice, thanks for posting. They look pretty 'long', what size are those?

I have the same creases with my Neumoras but have gotten mostly over it as well since I really wanted a double monk strap. I believe a bourbon Neumora will be available at some point, so I may have to grab some of those as well despite the creasing issues.

post #11459 of 53249
They need to come out with a double monk strap with a non-square toe.
post #11460 of 53249

They need to abolish the abortion of a shoe known as a double-monk.
