    Those look pretty bad. I would return and maybe even contest the $10 restocking fee. I don't think those should even be seconds.

    Thanks. I'll have to check them out in store.

    What he said. Those are more like thirds or fourths! I have five or six pairs of seconds and none of them are even remotely close to that :(

    That's exactly what I did. At one point the AE manager and I talked about maybe getting 11E's to support thicker socks, but I thought better of going too much bigger, hopefully I don't regret it.

    I came away with three very different shoes in this buying spree: Patriots, Jefferson, and Daltons. I'm pretty excited by the fact that they are all shell cordovan. I can't wait until they begin to trickle in from the factory.

    Hopefully between my burgundy calf Patriots and soon to arrive brown shell Patriots that will suffice for a temporary rotation until I can wear a full complement of lace-ups again.

    I have the daltons in walnut.

    I dint think I like the point. I'd have loved the shaker heights in black. AE doesn't have much for high utility in black boots. Bummer.

    Why not do an MTO thru Allison for the black Shakers? If that's what you really want...

    I'd return those. I couldn't get past that.
    Agreed. The only obvious pair of seconds that I've gotten was not even close to that bad.

    Do you mean on the inside of the shoe? I believe it's size and model number.

    These look like thirds, if not fourths to me. I'd send them back first thing in the morning.

    No, nothing in stock. MTO's are currently 15% off, though, which (if AE could do it), would end up at $505 plus tax. It would seem simple enough to make a Strand without the medallion, but you never know what they will or will not do.

    You should quote him the calf price too. Should be less than $300.

    AE posted a concept shoe a month back, see below...

    The shoe got it's wings clipped. Not bad looking.

    Man, Ryden! I really like those Bayfields. I just wish that the eyelets were spaced closer together. I have that issue with all of AE's boots tho. That's why I don't have any, I guess.
