I haven't been on SF for quite a while...easier on the wallet that way...but thought I would post up my recent AE experience.

So I bought a pair of burgundy shell Leeds a while back during the free belt deal. When they arrived i noticed a flaw that made them unwearable. I got lazy and they sat in my closet for a few months until last week when i shipped them back for exchange.

I missed a call on Friday from AE regarding these shoes and the message said please call to discuss. I called this morning and was shocked by what they said.

The rep was very appologetic and said that these shoes should never have left the factory and been sent to a customer. The kicker is, not only are they re-making my shoes as expected, but are also sending me a $698 gift card!

I'm pretty stoked...will post pics when i get my 2 new pairs of shell!

En route to my house are Olive Shannon Drives, Walnut Madison Parks and Brown Neumoks.

I tell myself I'm only keeping one of the pairs. What have you people done to me?!

Dark chili. Honestly, just a few posts ago someone blew me away with a pair of dark chili Carlyles.

No, but when I was on the Paramus Outlet this Monday I was told its not quite like the shine sponges.  Something about it being very concentrated, and that its what AE uses in their finishing shop.  There was more to it, but I was Shell high at the time, and I don't quite remember.

There was a nail sticking up about 1/4 inch through the insole in the middle of the heal area. I did not expect anything other than a remake...they contacted me and explained how they wanted to handle it.

Now THAT'S a flaw. Not like some eyelet misalignment.

Hi all, 

 

I'm new here, but been a lurker for a few months. I purchased an original AE Leeds shoe in 8D from shoebank about 6 weeks ago and it fits my foot perfectly.  I'm not even sure why they were seconds because I could not find any flaws other than a small scratch on the heel.  This is the same size I wear in the Malone and Ashton as well, and they all fit well.  

 

Anyway, I am very satisfied with the fit of the original Leeds, but it is my first shoe with a leather insole.  I much prefer the Poron insole (or something similar) as it's much more comfortable on my feet.  I also ordered a Wilbert in 8D (which is supposed to fit the same as the Leeds), but had to return them and go up a 1/2 size because it was too tight.  I am wondering if I need to do that for the Leeds 2.0 because of the added poron insole.

 

1.  Has anyone on here owned both the Leeds 2.0 and the original Leeds and did you have to go up 1/2 size for the 2.0?

 

2.  Does anyone know what last the Malone is built on?  The site claims it was made on the 511, but an AE salesman told me that it was definitely not the same last and that he didn't know which last it was built around.  I am curious because the Malone fits my foot the best of all the shoes I own.  

 

 

I would like to look into ordering a Leeds 2.0 when there is a seconds sale, but I'd like to know if I need to order 1/2 size up.

 

Thanks!

On the other hand, heel slippage would be eliminated.
