Is that unusual?

You have 4 pairs of the same shoe? It really depends on how often you wear them, and as you said, the way you walk, long days and locations. It can be normal for heel to get worn down in that time, even though it is shorter than normal.

I have been suggested to use Leather Lotion on my Navy Neumoks.

Just got my Chili McAllisters, overall I love them. There are a few tiny defects that will probably wear/buff out. 

Slight discoloration near laces, not nearly as bad as it looks in this photo. 



Little bubble that seems to flex with movement so hopefully it works itself out. If not, not that noticeable.

Here's more of a representation of what they look like.

Looks amazing, I absolutely should have made that purchase.

Werger,

 

Thanks for the info. I do, because I love that style of shoe and I found some great deals on different colors. I find the Walnut color goes well with light grey charcoal and denim, the dark brown with denim and the black and cordovan with black and navy suits. 

 

That's good to know that it's fairly normal albeit shorter than normal. I walk with a heavy step, I just wondered because in the past, J&M loafers didn't wear down as fast in the sole and heel, but would wear in the front of the shoe - which is why I switched companies.

Do you live within a decent drive to a USA major city?  Many Nordstrom Department Stores are located in the northern USA major border areas.

Thanks!

 

All of the sale styles are not listed on the Nordstroms web site.  But if you call the manager I spoke of a few weeks ago, he can order any size any style from any of the stores to be shipped to you.  No need to go hunting.  Just one email or phone call should help you.

Those shoes are sexy.

 

I am on the fence- either going for those in walnut or walnut Strands. I dress more business casual than anything and I fear the Strands would be too formal. Thoughts anyone?

 

Current rotation has 3 pair of wingtips, a wingcap (Hampton) and some loafers.

Strands are pretty flexible from what I understand. I want to get the Walnuts then work on my suit game.

I'm looking for an AE in a cap toe or a wing tip that uses a shinier leather than the Park Avenue.  I can put a mirror shine on the Park Avenue, thanks to the awesome tips here, but would prefer to have a shoe that has an overall higher shine.  Any suggestions, even if it's (ahem) outside of the AE brand?  Thanks.

I don't know what your business casual is like, but here are my Strands yesterday in what I would say is more relaxed than the standard business casual out there. Have a look and see if you think they are too formal for the situation. I figure pictures is the best way to tell.
