Ha. Let's just hope whatever happens it's not another AOL-Time Warner goodwill write down. O jeez that would be not good.

Cedar shoe trees are $7.50 each at JAB with promotion code SAVE70.  These are the exact same ones sold by AE, just re-branded as JAB.

 

http://www.josbank.com/menswear/shop/Product_11001_10050_101593

 

The promotion code works on other shoe care items on the site such as the shoe care kit, cedar shoe rack, and shoe conditioner.

Nordstrom is driving me insane. I'm on the 2nd pair of Allen Edmond Park Avenue replacements. Every time they send me a replacement pair, the rear quarters are stretched out. The "replacement" pair was worse than the first! I have an odd size so I have to order them online.

If you're talking about the "bowing" or "gaping" issue around the ankle, good luck with that. Just do a search in this thread for those terms and you'll find dozens of reports from those who have experienced this problem with AE shoes, most commonly PAs. Gave me quite a headache as well back in the spring when trying to acquire some black PAs. Took me three tries to find a pair that were acceptable.

Just you.

Thanks to this thread, I ordered a pair of the deeply discounted Bayfields from Lands End. They were $225 Cdn delivered to my Vancouver office, all in. I see they're over $280 now, at a lesser sale price. They're fantastic! Just what I wanted with their mini-lug soles for those pissy-rainy Vancouver days, or upcoming winter business trips to Chicago and Montreal. Love them!

I thought the same thing, but I didn't think that it was a fight worth starting, lol...

I have two pairs in front of me now in "limbo". One right shoe is good, others are bad. I did a live chat today with a CS rep and they found some that were in store and not drop shipped. I asked her to please insist on really checking the shoes and shipping them differently just in case and she said absolutely. I asked her to ask the branch rep to make sure there isn't any stretching on the rear quarters and he said they were in good shape. I'm crossing my fingers; I'm annoyed that I have to keep charging my card and waiting for a refund.

Unlined walnut shell Daltons on this beautiful Friday morning.

These are my absolute favorite pair AEs.

^^^ Absolutely beautiful!

Does the lack of lining affect normal sizing?

I honestly don't think so. I am no expert, but I assume the shoe is built over the last after the lining has been installed. This to me would assure that the inside is the same, but the outside dimensions would change slightly. I am sure there are others on here that can back up or refute the opinion. I think it may feel a bit more roomy, due to the added flexibility in the leather without the lining.

I am not sure.

+1. Unlined shoes definitely feel roomier to me.
