They look badass and I really want a pair.

Yes, I posted pics a few pages back. Here are pic re-posts.

Wanted to point out 2 things quickly based on the past couple of pages...
1. I got a basic wide belt from the outlets during the 2/250 sale for $49.00... Don't know what their regular price is, but worth checking out...
2. The $299 shell sale is still going on through the outlets...

Now onto your regularly scheduled programming...

First shipment came in today from the 2 for $250 sale, although this was the shipment I am most excited about (the other 2 pairs are boring fifth streets in walnut & merlot), I am saddened that these will not see the light of day until Easter... They will, however, have good company in the closet with my brown/linen strawfuts, my red/white/blue Mcalister's, and both my brown/white & walnut/bone broadstreets, what can I say, I'm a sucker for spectators!

Walnut & white Hamptons:


Brown & white Gatsby's for BB:


Those Hamptons are probably the most comfortable shoe I have put on straight out of the box...

Maybe. For me, I think they'd look too clunky on the 5 last. I like them as they are.

What do you when a shoe's width feels fine but there's just a little too much room between the vamp and the top of your foot?

Pics of my 2 for 250 purchase. Small blemish on the brooks Mcallister, can certainly live with it. I have a feeling it will diminish after polishing. The issue I have with the Brady's is worse though. They are wobbly, like the heels aren't flat causing both shoes to teeter. I will have to exchange those.

Anyone know if I will b hit with a restocking fee for exchanging out the defective Brady's.

What shoe?
Are they uncomfortably loose?
Does your foot slide forward inside the shoe when you walk?
Tighten the laces tighter?
Thin insole?
Tongue insert if that is the loose region and laces are fully tight?

I have a pair of shell MacNeil seconds on their way, and I'm hoping they are the lighter, redder version (though I'll take either, of course, especially as I plan on beating this pair up).

Dark.

Park Aves. They fit just fine, but the Cs fit better. Unfortunately I couldn't find Cs, so I had to settle for Ds. Not uncomfortable, no sliding, and they feel just fine on the sides. There's just definitely a good bit of room between the vamp and the top of my foot. I'm hoping an insole will do the trick.

what you on about?

I'm curious if the policy will be enforced for serious defects that probably should not have been shipped in the first place as opposed to some of the nit pick returns they get.  What was your experience with this policy?

It's a brand new policy.

Oh I wouldn't call that the dark #8. It's not as light as it sometimes is, but my wallet and watch strap are both much, much, much darker than that, much closer to the #8 pictures AE has on their website. My 721s are more like the picture you sent. Though, they've gotten a bit darker over the past year, from sunlight I suppose. Anyway, that is a gorgeous color of #8, I hope my MacNeils are like that.

Wearing Dalton's, for the first time, today and I had to unlace the right boot to drive, how long until the leather softens?
