These are clearly much too small for my shoes. There is no tension at all when the trees are inserted in the shoe, and there's no way they'll do their job to help the shoes keep their shape and prevent wrinkling/creasing. I'll be returning these and looking for something else, preferably cheaper than the almost $30 per pair I paid for these.

Why not use standard AE shoe trees? I have never had a problem with them in my PAs. I wear a size 10 and purchased a size M and there's plenty of tension in the tree.

Stopped by my local Nordstrom Rack and picked up 4 woodlore shoe trees for $12.90 a piece. Monica from J'Ville outlet wanted to sell me same exact ones for $20 a piece on sale

In my hometown, St. Louis, MO for the weekend. 2 announcements: 15% off the entire store until May 26 (including cordovan everything! Order by phone) and Paul Grangaard will be visiting the store at the end of the month. Happy hunting, men!

The epic trees were about 22 at Amazon when I got mine. I purchased some stronger springs for them as well. Check the size stamped on the tree to make sure you didn't get a small in a medium box or order the large. I think there may be a different size chart for the epics. Check the woodlore site for the chart.

If you can live without a brass name plate there are woodlore split toe trees at Nordstrom Rack for 12 or 15.

That was my first thought too, there should be a stamp on the bottom of the tree that says M. And an epic M should measure 11" from end to end. Those certainly look like a small. I use a lot of Epics but also split and full trees. Woodlore makes AE trees and is owned by AE, it is right across the street from the AE factory according to someone that I spoke to at AE. Used to get mine for ~$22 from Cedarville with free shipping when they had sales but now that Cedarville is no longer around as of a couple of weeks ago I will have to source from someplace else.

Hi,

I wanted to ask if the AE Dundee chukka is similar in shape to Tricker's 'Winston' chukka?

Excellent investment (I should know)

 

I have the same shoe and color - except mine are the 1999 version of the Sanford (which the only difference are the amount of eyelets).  I was able to purchase three of the same color and style for a total of $298 at the time - and to this day they look as sharp as yours.

 

What color Edge Dressing Polish do you use - and what brand?

Yes, I returned shoes to AE using their free UPS label.  When they received the shoes on Monday, my replacements were shipped the following Wednesday.  (Same works for refunds that take 48 hours)

 

Track your package.

I don't know.. this sounds like the kind of thing that should be disclosed to the bride before getting married. How much are you planning to spend after the wedding? nest.gif

Maybe not tuck the whole jean in . . .

 

But, you can certainly cuff them - or (see last photo)

You can make sure your jean length is of a measurement to show off the entire boot when sitting!

I struggled with the Epics when I tried them. They do run short and very wide. I tried two sizes and gave up. But a lot of people swear by them, so I think it's a matter of foot/shoe size. (There was also a size labeling issue, but I thought it had been resolved.)

The ones that work well for me are the Washburns. http://www.onecedarlane.com/detail.php?id=105&catid=2&sort=

But it's definitely at YMMV type thing. You just have to experiment.

I just noticed this. What happened to them?
post #21000 of 46464

Registered to ask this question, although I have followed this thread for a while now - where are these bayfields coming from? I always wanted some (preferably seconds/discounted - I narrowly missed them when they were a discontinued style the first time I got in on a shoe bank sale and I have wanted them badly ever since!).

 

Someone referenced "paul's deal"? But I tried searching for what that was within the thread to no avail. Can anyone give me the details?

 

Thanks!
