Good to see you in the AE thread, @Kahuna75. Hope summer is treating you well.
I, too, am a sucker for boots. A perfect fit isn't nearly as important because I have so many different weight socks and I can tie them so much snugger than shoes. Luckily I have kept this addiction to AE only... but I know it is only a matter of time before I start looking at a few other makers.
Today is my first day back at work since last Friday (talk about 4th of July weekend!!), and while I was away it was a solid rotation of Kirkwood, Maritime, and Addison. Do you like the fit of your Addy's? I still get some heel slip, despite a tongue pad, and they work better for me with socks.
Having a terrific summer...thanks! actually heading out for a eat my way down the coast trip in a few hours...My addisons are really well broken in and I do not get any more heel slip..though they are a touch loose after losing some weight. I thought I was going to have to sell them and try a smaller size after last summer but like I mentioned either they broke in more or my foot widened out some from all the extra walking and working out. Of course I still am firmly in the 250+ club but beats the 280+ club..lol
That is a great 4th break you had hope it was terrific...I wish I could get the Maritime or Kirkwood to fit me correctly..have some Handmade in Maine/USA old Sebago's, and a rotation of newer Sebagao, Sperry, Rancourt to fill in for boat shoes.
