Gold medal winner right there.

It will not get worse with break in.
I have 2 or 3 misaligned like that.
Send them back, 975 is readily available, I would want a perfect pair if i was paying full retail.

I can offer my personal opinion which is send them back.

Agree 100%. For full price, you should be able to get a pristine pair of 975s

Carmina makes some incredible ladies boots in Ruby cordovan...

Carmina makes some incredible mens boots in, for all intents and purposes, is basically Ravello (Cognac)

Mine are the same way.  Love that about them and why they are the King of LHS

One time I was in the AE store in Chicago, and there was a female associate wearing a pair of AE's.  That was a total anomaly.

 

Hope this helps.

 

Thanks!

I ran into a female SA at AE in Houston.  She wore AE strands and was quite helpful in sizing.  The strands never looked so sexy!

I wish this was the case. My wife likes clogs, which I find to be a bit of a downer. Lord knows I've tried to sway her from them. Fortunately, pretty much everything else about her is wonderful.


My wife refuses to wear anything but Stuart Weitzman, which can be as expensive as Alden.  (She has difficulty sizing her narrow foot with other shoemakers.)  I have the same difficulty with non-Alden shoes...  :rotflmao:

Have you put them on and laced them up?  Things may line up differently with your foot inside of them.  Wouldn't hurt to check.

I did. I was hoping it would pull them better in line, but it wasn't meant to be.
