    whatever she gets paid, its not enough...She legitimately should have dealing with Style Forum members as one of her bonus-able objectives

    Totally! Wasn't there talk about circulating some type of thank you card/note/petition to AE to give her a raise?

    I don't think there was anything about a raise, but there was talk of a forum thank you gesture.

    Heard the same news about the online inventory going live in the near future from an sa at Port Washington. According to her the $250 sale was supposed to be in store only(?).

    I own the brown Cronmok. Big fan. Definitely a very casual boot. They look great with a pair of slim, cuffed jeans. They're unlined, which makes them quite supple.

    Like these? Love them, and as said above, without lining, they fit and feel like slippers.

    Has anyone put a Topy on their Neumoks or Cronmoks? I was curious to know what, if any, differences were noticed in traction, sole longevity, comfort, flexibility, etc. I don't like bringing the broken glass and street bits inside after wearing them. I find myself tempted to brush down the BOTTOM of my Neumoks - they're shimmery with danger!

    Does the oil infusion actually make the soles softer / more prone to damage from glass / gravel / bottle caps on the ground?

    I have not added a sole guard but I have Neumoks with AE V Tread and I love the feel of them. I would have no issue with added a sole guard to any of my shoes though.

    I've topy'd all of the above, with no issues and a whole new world of confidence! I too found leather soles picking up shards of glass I never knew existed on streets and sidewalks prior to my unprotected AE's. And in our climate (Vancouver area) we get rain, rain, and sometimes even more rain. Lol. I found myself getting up in the morning and looking out to the street to see if it was wet, before choosing my wardrobe and shoes. Now with almost everything I own topy'd, bring on the rain!

    To anyone with the Brooks Bros AEs or a model with the poron insole. Is poron a spongy type material with some give or fairly dense with not much compression. I'm trying to figure out if I'll be safe buying my usual AE size or if they'll make my feet suffer.

    The poron insoles for the Brooks Brothers AE shoes feel spongy with some give. I have the BB Chili Pebbled MacNeil and the normal AE Black smooth MacNeil both in 9.5 D. The Brooks Brothers version feels just a bit snugger than the AE version, but I wouldn't have opted for a different size. Perhaps some others can share their experiences too.

    I have a fairly large arch and I don't like the BB versions at all. The extra thickness of the poron jams my foot towards the top of the shoe if that makes sense...

    Regular AE version feels much more roomy for me, height wise

    Appreciate the advice drcharlie. I was wondering just now if the difference in fit is similar to wearing thin dress socks in the spring /summer vs the same shoe with thick socks during winter?

    @indigo
    That's the issue I am hoping to avoid.
