These are firsts, so I would have expected them to arrive in pristine condition.

Even if these were some that had been returns, I would have expected AE to at least clean up the soles. I do realize that a single wearing myself might result in the same debris .... I just didn't expect to find beach sand on shoes straight out the box.

Having said all that, they fit great and there are no scuffs or marks that I noticed on the suede itself. I'm keeping them.

I think someone ordered those and swapped out their used one for the new ones and the returns department didn't catch that.  I would return those POST HASTE!

According to the AE website on the lasts...

222 Last


Known more simply as the 2 last, the 222 last has an elongated toe with a slightly higher instep and a more narrow fit in the forefoot creating a sleek silhouette and rounded European look.


108 Last


Known more simply as the 8 last, the 108 last has an elongated forepart with a tapered and flatter toe. It is similar to the 222 last with a longer, narrower fit and a rounded toe.



I own the Madison park and it's one of my favorites in appearance and fit. I personally could use perhaps a bit more instep allowance, but that's me. If your foot is more on the narrow side across the toes, I'd say go Stuttgart. Otherwise, go Madison Park.

Here are a couple of real world pictures of the Madison Park.




Thanks for the info.
My foot is a 9 EEE so I think the Madison is the way to go.

Speaking of color variation here is a peek at the most hated shoe of the year....the Union.  Does this look like the same color to you?  I think Allen Edmonds needs to look at this stuff.


I'm beginning to think they realized the shoes on sale were not top quality and instead of clearancing them they added a sale.

 

I ordered the Union and the Oak Street Navy.   The Oak Street had lots of dents and scratches and the sides of the leather were wrinkled like crazy.  Very disappointing.

Mine too, I even ordered the Union to see what it would be like.  LOL.  I always choose the least conservative.

Here's a $400 COLE HAAN shoe.  Insane but very comfy! 


I have a ton of COLE HAAN but this one will have to wait for $ale.

I have decided to sell off a few pairs that I just am not getting to for one reason or another.  Thought you'd like first dibs:

 

Wolverine 721 in burgundy shell (AE-made) - 12 D, worn half a dozen times

Wolverine 744 in brown shell (AE-made) - 13 D, worn half a dozen times - still have the box and shoe trees

Eagle Country in black sharkskin - 12 EEE - worn 3x

Parrot in brown suede - 12 EEE - still has some life

Leeds (on the old 8 last) in burgundy shell with a natural split reverse welt - 12 E - recently recrafted, worn twice

Long Branch in grey - 12 EEE - worn half a dozen times

 

PM me for deets.  As you can see, unlined shell didn't work that great for me.  The only unlined I'm keeping are my walnut shell Daltons.

 

 

 


Wish those were all 12D!

The one on the left is a cool color, the one on the right is a completely different brown. How could anyone pair those two shoes?

Yikes! Really hard to believe that one person put both of these shows in the same box.

Just found these at the rack. Fullerton in what looks like snuff suede. $139.90 with 25% off, so $112 out the door.

Any info on them? They're in good shape. No seconds mark.

Wearing my brown Flagstaffs today.........


.....and remember shoes, when used as directed, are made for walking.  

If you don't walk enough, you may end up being one of these.

Got my replacement HMs in today and while the don't have the weird striping I had before, now one boot has a bit of a dent in the toe. Seems pretty common so I guess I'll have to live with it. Making me believe there were problems with the entire boot line so that's why they put them on sale immediately. Too many issues it seems.

Oh, man... I was really hoping that wasn't going to be the case. Really hope things get better for her. The Rivs are thinking about you. Keep us updated.

I'm a firm believer that a diet can have a pretty large affect on cancer. Maybe look into alkaline foods that you can feed your dog? I'm sure some of the doctors on here might chime in to tell me I'm wrong, but so much that goes on inside the body is attributed to what you put in it.

Good luck! We are rooting for her.

Consider yourself lucky!  I've been trying to find those but have had no luck.  Very nice, indeed, and a great price.  You never know what you'll find at the Rack...

I'd be curious to see what they look like.  After you get a dozen or so wears in them I doubt you would even notice, although now that I said that, its all you'll see. :devil:
