What were they originally? $250?

I'm a big fan of the double butyl sole, definitely going with that option for my next MTO

Wondering if anyone could give me some insight here.

   I've been having problems with my Eagle County boots from day 1, and i'm not sure if this is a problem with my pair, or if the boot just isn't for my foot. It feels like the heel cup wasn't properly formed, and instead contouring to my heel shape (like all my other AEs, some of which are on the same last), the heel just seems to go straight up from the sole. This makes the boot slide up and down along the back of my heel as I walk.

  After about 3+ hours of wear, my heels start to hurt. I've even developed a blister on one of them. I've worn them around 7 or 8 times, and they haven't really gotten much better, only a touch. Anyone else with this problem?

 

I'm going to also contact AE and see what they have to add to the situation. I have far too many comfortable pairs of AEs to make me feel like it should be like this. It's causing me to want to wear them less and less.

No... I need to stop cause I was WRONG! LOL

I am honestly not sure, but according to Amazon, yes.

From what I have heard, they did. I have not put them on yet and haven't walked around in them a bit. But I heard that they fixed the issue, and since I had to wait for the shoes for about 10 weeks, I am pretty confident that the solution got applied to my shoes.

I suspect it won't be TTS as yours were, according to the reviews.

 

First wearing, the heel is just a tad loose and the forefoot just a bit tight. I imagine it'll loosen up in the front once the lining has compressed a bit. I can't imagine going any longer or wider as my heel would most assuredly come out of the slipper when walking. Any shorter and my toes would be rubbing against the front of the slipper. So...while this size isn't "perfect", I think it's about as good as it'll get.

 

I look forward to your results, Kentyman. I ordered four pair of Vernon's from Amazon once so that I could find the right size.

All this talk about single and double soles made me think of this question: Anyone gone from a single soled shoe to a double one on their first resole? Or vice versa? Results? Pros/cons.

No clue why, but AE dropped them close to the end of August or early September.

Congrats Charlie! The wait was brutal for me too. I have my other 20 pairs of shoes to keep me company though, so I managed. :-)

I keep saying this as well. I have a pair in tan suede and they are great. I am thinking about doing an MTO for a different pair but not sure yet

I wonder what a MTO amok would cost... If it were $99, that would be incredible.
