Would you ever notice a mark like that on someone else's shoes?  I know I wouldn't.

It's actually more noticeable in person, but yeah I agree.  I'm not worried about people noticing though... just want to make sure I didn't pay $300 for shoes and get stuck with a "bad pair."  I figured the people in this thread would have a better sense of what's normal and what shouldn't be tolerated.

Here's a quick question for you.  I recently received these Fifth Ave's and am pretty pleased with the shoes overall.  When I first took them out of the box, I immediately noticed the oval mark on the left side of the right shoe.  It matches the brand cutout inside the shoe.  If this were just a slight depression in the leather, it wouldn't really bug me, but it looks like a dark ring has been burnished into the leather as a result.  I asked my local AE salesman about the issue and he said it was normal and would probably polish out.  I've worn the shoes once, and tried to diminish the mark with AE color-matched polish, but no dice.

 

An AE customer service rep looked at the pics and said this isn't a flaw.  But having seen the minor imperfections that can render a shoe "second" quality, I'm a little skeptical.  What do you guys think?  Should these have been seconds?  Should I forget about it?  Anyone else seen this kind of mark on their AE bourbons?

 

 

 

Looks like they messed up on the lining. Send them back.

I think they run the sale a few times a year and I cannot speak for if that time is always the same. One just past in Feb so I do not forsee another one upcoming. It is also uncertain if the sale that just past will be the last at the $299 price point given the recent increase of shell from AE.

It's happened maybe 3 times. I'm not sure if they'll bring it back. Perhaps if they still have lots of lot stock to clear. Hard to say, but even the outlet staff seem surprised that the prices were cut that low, so I wouldn't expect it.

I'm interested in getting the RL Singletons.  Can anyone vouch for their fit.  I wear a 9.5D in Stands.  Thanks.

Here's a picture I snapped comparing the sole thickness of Jefferson and Rutledge. You're right, it's not quite as thick as the double sole on my McTavish, but it's definitely thicker than the sole on the Rutledge. One AE SA once described the Jefferson as having a one-and-a-half sole.



On another note, I finally got my duper-clearance Amoks. They feel great! Not noticing the toe box being that much tighter than my 5 Last shoes. My first chukkas, btw. Looking forward to warmer weather so I can break them out.

something from dark days of AE in the 1990's. When the whole business casual thing started, AE tried branching out to more casual styles. This is one of the results. I'm not stating an opinion, just stating what it is.

They do not make anything similar at this time.

BTW, AE also made women's shoes at one time.

So you're saying they fit like the 5 last?

If anything, I feel like my 5 last shoes are a little more tapered. But it could be that these are unlined and have more give. It could also be that my feet are idiosyncratic (they are).

As always, YMMV

Haha. Argghhh. I was pretty interested in those, but wasn't sure about fit. Their reviews are also pretty awful for whatever reason. What are your impressions so far re:build and everything.

Seems ok to me, but I've yet to wear them outside. The suede does seem thin, but perhaps that's normal. For the price I paid ($126), it seems reasonable.
