post #39376 of 52505

I received my seconds Park Avenue yesterday. After the initial check, the only thing noticeable were "dents" made around the tongue area. However, after lacing them up and putting them on for literally 1 minute and hardly walking, some creasing happened as well. Seen below.

 

 

Should I be worried?

They are shoes. Wear them and enjoy

I don't see what we are supposed to be looking at, honestly.

Leather shoes will crease when you walk.

As far as the "pits" are concerned, a good wax polish should fill those in. Honestly, I think that that's well worth the $165 discount you got. Enjoy them!

Walnut Carlyles are in. Sure enough, they have a flat welt and no wheeled edges. frown.gif That's a bummer but in general they look very nice.

Stop looking for reasons to be unhappy.
You're allowed to enjoy yourself :)

In an act of spontaneous spending I pulled the trigger on a pair of the grey LB with the extra 20% off sale. Trouble is I am kind of having a bit of regret. I currently already own one pair of LB and enjoy them immensely. Can anyone post some more pics of the grey LB in an effort to help convince me I did not make a mistake?

Thanks much!

The Long branch and the Shells though, have been routinely (1-3 times a week) been worn in calf deep snow, at temperatures reaching below -35C/-31F at times, sometimes back to back days. iPhone pics don't do these justice, but its the best ive got. In person, the shells look "wet," and glass-like, despite repeated exposure to inclement weather. Don't worry about your shells people, just wear them.

 

 

 

 

 

With my skinny-azz ankles my Daltons look like this when they're laced up... wondering if I should stick some tongue pads in them so the facings aren't that close.

Thanks everyone! I just did a lot of research before buying some seconds, and it seemed like the quality control would be hit or miss. Given they creased after having them on for a few minutes is something I've never seen before. Was just being overly cautious =).

Well, they are seconds precisely because they did not pass the quality control, to begin with. Now the thing is that there are different reasons why they became seconds. I don't think you have solid reasons to worry though--they definitely we not deemed seconds because QC somehow made a decision they would crease. As folks have pointed out, creasing is normal on leather shoes, bit if you think they crease to much, it is likely the shoes don't fit you well.

What a great, clean looking shoe! Those deserve some rotation in the collection for sure!

Those are beautiful shoes!  

I really wish this shoe came out a year ago, I would've snatched it up in black to wear with my tuxedo.  Instead I went with a nice looking To Boot New York black wholecut, but would've preferred to spend my money on AEs.

question about the brown range colors of the mctavish. Although I'll probably be killed for ordering another pair of shoes this month, I've been eyeing the low prices amazon is offering on the mctavish. My first pick would be the cognac, but it's not available in my size. They do have 'dark tan' and 'brown.' Also listed as unavailable is the 'natural.' How much difference if there between these three? I assume brown is the darkest but it's difficult to tell how dark from pictures. How much darker is it than a walnut?

Do post some pics with you wearing them if you don't mind

Have a lot of decisions to make.

The only confirmed keeper is a pair of chocolate Dalton's. Will post some pics later today.
