Good evening, Gents. This is a picture of my Lake Shore Drives after my cat finished with them. I'm looking for a little positive reinforcement here. These shoes are still wearable, right? The damage can't be repaired, I realize. But I want to believe that with a good cleaning they would be presentable.

What's everyone think?

Some good brushing and some neatsfoot oil or conditioner will help it

Thanks, Doc. This is something AE calls "tan leather" which is also used on the Addisons now on clearance. AE recommends no polish, lotion, or anything else but periodic suede spray. But I must confess their premium leather lotion really does a nice job on this leather.

Another new Higgins Mills owner here. The natural CXL and the sale price made it an easy choice.

I'm sorry to be the one to break the bad news to you.
There's really nothing you can do at this point. You're going to have to get rid of the cat.
The shoes, though, don't really look too bad. I'd hit them with the conditioner cream. They should be presentable after that.

You don't know how right you are! Let's just say there was a very intense discussion tonight regarding the cat's future. Thanks for responding.

I've got two dogs and three cats. They all know to leave my things alone.
And I don't put any of my shoes where they could get to them -- just in case they forget.

When I was in my store about 6 weeks ago, I saw the leather cutting templates for the Bayfield, and a bunch of stuff on development, including projected Fall 2016 release. I suppose nothing was set in stone, but they sure seem to have progressed pretty far.

If they've changed their mind I may have to jump on one of the C&J GMTO's for something similar.

Yeah, I got an earful on that last part. All I could say was "I'm the victim here," in my whiniest voice.

Any of you guys recraft your shoes with the v-tread leather sole? Did you like it better than the regular leather sole? I'm considering this when the time comes to recraft.

Speaking of v-tread, I'm surprised no one on here has posted pictures of the new suede Strand. I figured that would be a popular shoe. Perhaps it's because they haven't had a sale on it yet.

Had literally about five minutes to check out the other Nordstrom Rack location that's near my office (Schaumburg, IL) after dinner tonight. That place is definitely a hell hole. All shoes unboxed and loose on the racks. Only had time to check my size. Nothing exciting. Some Kenilworths. And, I think, a Gobi... Style # 5431. Won't be back there any time soon. 2/10.

Just as well, I suppose. I didn't need anything distracting me from my Club Monaco suede Leeds.

We have a 15 week old cat that we brought home when she was 8 weeks old. All of my shoes stayed in the closet anyways prior to her arrival, but after we brought her home, we've kept the closet and bedroom door shut at all times

I prefer leather, but I have a few with the V-Tread. If you find leather slippery, its something to consider. I certainly prefer the AE V-Tread to an aftermarket toppy. The factory V-Tread blends in more smoothly with the sole edge and bottom than any cobbler applied toppy I've seen.
