Calf

It's a brand new pair of shoes, just brush will do. But putting on reno won't hurt either.

I am wondering ryderfan, were your Walnut Shell? I know they were very limited on their supply of that.

Mine are cappuccino shell. I was now told the same thing as you; that they did not pass inspection and have to be re-made. So I am guessing it will be at least a few more weeks for me. I was not told how or why they did not pass and I also asked if I could purchase them as seconds. It took me 3 weeks of emailing every 3 days to finally get an answer as to what was going on. A bit of a frustrating process...

Yup, I am in the same boat. I ordered in the beginning of May and was just told that my MTO didn't pass inspection either. I'm supposed to hear something in "a few days." Mine aren't Walnut Shell...just burgundy calf. 

 

I'm happy to see AE's QC dept is meticulous, but just based on this thread, I'm surprised; there appears to be a higher percentage of shoes that don't pass QC than I would have thought.

Ha! I also asked if I could purchase mine as seconds...what was the outcome in your case? I'm still waiting to hear back.

Thanks for the reply. They are seconds so I expected some sort of defect. I was just wondering if people thought it was too much of one to keep. It's too late for me to return them now and I got a good price for what BB is selling new for $300.

I like it with those socks. I suppose to make the shoes a little more casual, you could always throw in some brighter colored laces.

 

Thank you. It is more out there than others in my office as they wear pure black pants, shoes, and socks, but it worked well and I received many compliments. I looked up some strands with colour laces and was not a fan, but I like them on the Neumok. Maybe they just didn't have the right colour laces for me.

I like the gray pant+walnut strand combination. :)

 

Thank you as well. It is from a store here in Canada called Zelikovitz Leathers - http://zelikovitz.com/courses.html?page=shop.product_details&product_id=7594

The colour is not dead on the same as the shoes, but it compliments them very well and I actually like it better that way personally. 

 

They have very well priced items and are cheaper if you sign up for a membership. Usually it is something like $30 for the membership, but promo code "july2013" will get you the membership for free.

I like it - maybe also known as "rump" day?

The only real discount is on seconds (contact the shoe bank, or an outlet) and see how you do.  A lot of my shell cordovans are seconds.  Every once in while, AE does a sale on everything they, I think the last one was roughly 20%, to celebrate their 90 year anniversary.

Nice work and very nice collection!  How do you find the Kenwoods fit?  Did you go with the same size as your fleet of gunboats?

post #25047 of 46471

I've mentioned before that I believe the Clifton fits a little larger than other 8 last shoes. It's been a year since I purchased them during the last Nordstrom's Anniversary Sale, and I can definitely confirm this to be true. For those who are interested in the Clifton, I would go down one half size in length. Hope this helps someone. Now off to purchase a tongue pad!

Thanks!

The fit on the Kenwoods are not great in my Brannock size (9D), there is a lot of heel slip on the left shoe. Strangely enough, I have the same shoes in tan grain in the same size and they fit better, but I have not worn those shoes yet, so it's possible if they stretch that they may not fit well either. I'm still conflicted about keeping them even after more than a year.

Ok guys, I think my strands may have a fit issue, but I don't know if it's a length or width problem... They are a 12D, my usual size, and I put them on this morning to wear out for the first time, and promptly took them right back off and put different shoes on.  I took just a few steps and noticed that the right shoe's bend point was not in the right spot, it was bending on the toe cap. The left shoe was fine, it's bend was in the right spot, not in the toe cap, but just past it.

 

So how would I fix this with a different size? Bigger size? Same size in a wider width?

 

Thanks

Did you buy them from Nordstroms where they fitted your foot?  If so, they will take back used shoes for the proper fit.
