    I dig the leather and the crepe sole, but the color choices were uninspiring. Same leather as the new Maritimes but I liked those colors more. Especially the "chocolate" outrigger, which looked almost grey. It was like they were going for something along the lines of mushroom and tobacco suede for the two colors, but wanted to keep it muted. Summer colors should either be bright or saturated, not dull and diluted. That said, the tan ones are pretty baller and I might pick up a pair on clearance.*

    So... Anyone experienced their shoes getting uncomfortably tight in the summer months?

    I noticed this in my left foot for the past few weeks. Since its unilateral I think I may have an actual issue.

    I don't mean to sound harsh here, but won't that be covered when you have the shoe on? That would be like sending a shoe back for having a stain on the insole.

    For me, it's my right pinky toe. Ugh.

    I knew the Newberg was gonna bomb the minute they announced it. Terrible execution - the pics are not good at all, so making it online only couldn't possibly help. Then you release it far before summer, and discontinue it when summer hits? Makes no sense.

    @mreams99 Lucca yes, rogue, no.

    Not wearing AEs, but wanted to post my Meermin Mallorca Linea Meastro wingtips. The color says cogniac, but it looks an awful lot like chili. Very high quality shoes, hand welted.

    I picked up my Hopkinsons from Dabondo as well... for less than $100 shipped and basically brand new with no flaws.

    Yeah, these are my only shell and you'd probably have to pry them off my cold dead feet.

    How much ankle bowing is considered acceptable? Anything I can do to fix the problem? I really don't want to return the shoes.
