And WTH has happened to this thread? I see 60+ new posts a day, and I assume there's a new controversy! But no, it's just people discussing shoes again. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

 

Most shoes have nails showing because the top lift is nailed on as a final step in the heel building process.  AE's heel base is nailed on, but I believe the top lift (the final piece that contacts the ground) is cemented on.

No way the Sanderson is a 3 last. Some people say it is a custom last for RL. It is very close to the 2 last, if not the actual 2. I own it. It runs narrow. It feels and looks the same to me as the 2.

Side note: not much paste wax to try to remove - maybe they are listening!


 

Nice looking pairs!

Maybe a thin insole could take care of it?

It does not go away - and I have worn a few pairs many times hoping for just that outcome.

I typically use a thin insole.

Thanks for the response, now I am totally confused .... you think it is narrower and shorter than the #5? Maybe the best thing for me is to just stay away from it... live in Canada so it is a bit of a hassle to order it and send it back.

Yes, go with your 5 Last size and go up a width.

First quality Katmai for $133.45 before taxes? That's a steal.

I apologize if this is somewhere in the thread, but after looking back several pages, I could not find a clear answer.

1. There appears to have been an e-mail from the AE CEO (Paul) waiving the MTO fee? Is this correct? If so, it is exclusively for shell or any shoe?

2. I keep seeing "an additional 20% off" thing. Is this an unspoken sale? Exclusive to amazon? or a discount you can get in store? I saw that someone at the jeffersonville outlet received a 20% discount.

If someone could summarize, I would really appreciate it.

All RL models are on custom lasts. Sanderson is on customer last which is very similar to 2. I have sanderson and also ae players(on last 2). Sanderson runs narrow as. I have sanderson in 8E width and they feel like 8B. Unwearable. My players are 8EEE and I feel I could've done better with E or EE on players.

Amazon has an exclusive 20% off promotion if you sign up for an email list.  Wholly separate from that, AE's Jeffersonville outlet has a temporary 20% off sale.

Mine should be here today, along with the New Orleans. The Amoks just arrived yesterday from the Amazon sale. I'm only going to keep either the Amok or the Karmai. I don't have any boots at this juncture, which ones do you think are more versatile?

Paul Grangaard had posted on here and offered to make a deal for any of us SFers. I have contacted him about a pair of Walnut Shell Cordovan MacNeils. I am paying the retail price for the shoe, but no MTO fee. I can not speak as to if this is what everyone is being offered, but it what I have been offered. I am going to assume he is waving the MTO, but you know what happens when you assume. His email was not specific to Cordovan, but I think most people here were after special make up cordovan. Again, assuming, you should be able to have anything made. I believe he mentioned old styles that were no longer being made as long as they had the dies, and also having shoes made in another color if they had the leather. 

 

As for the 20% sale, It is at the Jeffersonville outlet for one item. If you mention this to the Port Washigton outlet, they will match it. I picked up a pair of Shell Cordovan Park Aves for $359. I also ordered a pair of Shell Cordovan Patriots yesterday for $359. Of course, they were both seconds. I can not find any noticeable reason why the Park Aves were seconds. The sales associate said one had a bit of a different sheen than the other, and sent them over to have the production team strip and refinish them. They came to me looking like first quality. I look forward to getting the Patriots.

Got a couple questions...

Went to Nordstrom rack with the wife the other day, and ran across a pair of AE boat shoes that were exactly what I was looking for and fit perfect. I know being Nordstrom rack they are an older outdated pair. I'm curious as to which ones they are. I've tried searching, but can't find them online at all anywhere. They were stuck in a fairfax box, so that doesn't help to id them. Do any of you guys know?

 

 

Next question, I'm getting a pair of Dalton's in Walnut within the next couple days. I want to get the black patina look on the toe and heel. I've looked up how to do this, but still have some questions. Should I use black wax or polish? Should I use a walnut polish first, then add the black wax/polish? Should I layer the polishes differently, and how often should I use the black? 

 

Thanks
