My first pair of MTO AE came today. They are a dark brown shell Leeds on the double butyl sole to help them break in easier. They where not the ones I expected, but they are still a welcome addition to my rotation. I only ordered these about 4 weeks ago. Still waiting for my tan suede MacNeils. I am hoping to find out the progress on them tomorrow. It has been over 3 months now for them.
These really are fantastic! Congratulations! I can't stop looking at them. I reached out to request the same makeup yesterday. The only difference I'm considering is a lighter edge trim. Is yours a black edge trim or dark brown? What does AE call their version of antique edge trim?
I sadly just had to return my Alden cigar PTB for refund due to issues with the finish. Since cigar PTBs are so rare, the Leeds may be my only option as well.
