I feel that I'm being a tad picky, but I'm also quite sure if I didn't return them I'd likely always look at them and wish I did. If they were seconds, it would be another story. Any comments on how common this minor problem is?




Return them.

Got a call today from the store. My walnut McAllisters are in. I'll be picking them up when I get back into town. I'm pretty pumped about them because they are my first pair of quality shoes. Now I have to find the perfect pair of Burgundy Shell loafers.

You people will be the death of me. I just ordered shell Patriots from Jeffersonville.

With the nice AE sale going on until the 29th. What shoes do you think will get discounted for the Memorial Day sale? Will it be a 50%
Sale like I've heard. Shall I by a pair now or two later. Any specifics you might have would be great.

Also anyone know where to find vintage AE? And in size 14. How does AE deside what last to use for shoes and style choices. The past had a better selection then now!!!!!

What size and color did you get? I ordered and received the Brown Shell Patriots in 9.5D last week. They are a little tight when I wear them with socks and fit perfect without socks. I'm still hoping they loosen up a tad bit but even if they don't I can wear them comfortably. I'm thinking of ordering a pair in burgundy shell as well while the sale is still on.

Anyone have experience with these, in terms of fit?

Many are still around.  How far back in Vintage do you want to go?

 

Here is their 1956-1957 Catalog:

Welcome!  I'm glad you're pumped about your new shoes.  I hope you get your wallet pumped up, too, because it's a long road from here on out if you keep reading these threads.

 

Enjoy your new kicks.

The Jeffersonville outlet has seconds Shell Burgundy Patriots for $359 after a discount. A great deal.

I ordered brown shell and went true to size 12D. I had ordered Randolph's, but am returning them due to too much heel slippage. Cold Iron's report on the fit and the great deal convinced me to give them a try.

Oh, forgot to ask. It says to go one shade darker. I previous store associate had walnut Daltons, and he recommended black. Should I do that, or use Merlot and build it up? I'm good with polishing dark colors shoes, but this it the first set of Walnut I will do plus I've never antiqued shoes before.
