I use gixen and have used it for years (probably close to 10 if not more). I pay the $6 or $8 for an annual subscription and I get two snipes (one regular and one mirror).

Even before the annual payment I've never had a fail. I used to collect sports cards back in the day and would use it multiple times per week. Curious as to what others use.

However, after another few months with the new pair, it looks like the finish is started to come off them as well, albeit not quite so bad. I've tried polishing them, but the lighter areas where the finish is coming off is still very visible. And I'm almost certain it's not just due to my roughing up the shoes. I have another pair of Strands and two pairs of McAllisters with some scuffs, but they don't look like the finishing is coming off. If I remember correctly, the sales associate told me last October when I get the first pair that they had recently changed the Walnut finishing, and I wonder if that has something to do with my difficulties.

 

I'm gonna bump this just to see if anyone has experienced this. I don't have a picture currently, but it just looks like the finishing is coming off. I'm heading into an AE store tomorrow to talk to someone about it, just wanted to see if anyone had seen something similar.

@jzrhwinnj thanks for the eBay search suggestions. Good luck with your latest snipe

@roz77 sorry about the finish coming off of your shoes. I unfortunately do not have much experience in that area. Hopefully other members or the store can shed some light on what is going on.

Played 54 holes yesterday (split the time between my two AE shoes of course, 27 each) and thought that was a lot until I learned a 60 year old lady played 63. My body pretty much hates me today.

On a good note, these Oak Streets (RUBBER SOLES!) are perfect. I'm really digging the combo with the green pants too.

It's probably that spray acrylic they're using on their shoes now.  Hit it up with some Renomat to remove it completely and then condition and polish, if you're comfortable doing that.

I use auctionsniper, which I linked in that post.  Have used them for close to 10 years without fail also, and have been very satisfied (I have not compared services in many years).  

 

Posted eBay pics of them before getting dressed today, so these old school chestnut Lexingtons got another wear.

@SLCRich These pants are also light green, though they look aqua in this lighting.

Yeah, I'm at 9 for the year (15 overall), and have at least 2-3 more I want in the next couple months. My justification is that I wear dress shoes 5-6 days per week- I don't have a problem, I have one helluva rotation icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

I'll stop at 20. Maybe.

 

I lost count. I think I have them all listed in my signature but I'm not even sure anymore. Clearly the weasels have pushed me into a dark place. Now I even find myself wanting to buy brand new Alden Shells. I love my shell strands and now I want more shell. Some of the lighter shell colors look amazing and I'd like to get a pair soon. I've even just joined the Massdrop to get a shell wallet.... At this rate there will be nothing to put in it.

I remember saying the exact same thing about hitting 20 - then the BCF thing came along and with all that momentum I managed to get up to 52 in a relatively short amount of time.

Beautiful Monster.

 

There's a song called "Beautiful Monster" by Ne-Yo (@Neo1 :cool:) and although the lyrics are most likely about a girl, they could just as well be about Allen Edmonds shoes!

Probably doesn't hurt calling to see about getting firsts with the additional 20% from last week its possible they will honor it still. I was just about to do this because those look better than the stock photos. Had to take a breath and think about when I'd wear them and it occurred to me that I would probably not wear them with jeans and I don't wear chinos enough to justify. Sad because they look great but they'd sit a majority of the time.
