Thanks, these fit a lot better than the grey ones, I switched the lacing to bar lacing and was able to get a better V-gap closure than in the picture, that was just initial try on.Congrats, it looks likes those fit you well!
Cxl almost always fits larger in regards to AE. I once had a pair of cxl Clark Street shoes that were way too loose in the heel and it broke my heart to sell them. They were my usual size, but just too damn big.Thanks, these fit a lot better than the grey ones, I switched the lacing to bar lacing and was able to get a better V-gap closure than in the picture, that was just initial try on.
Moving forward, unless the grey is offered again down the road, I'm going to try and order a heat moldable insole to take up some of the extra room, since the color is awesome in person, compared to the Silver look they had on the AE site.
Are you sure? I thought the purpose of this is to have them re-crafted, then take them apart to see if they hit the same holes.Hell I'd donate my McAllisters to the cause. I was gonna send em to Potter soon anyway.
But if it’s a pair whose history is unknown and we found extra holes we wouldn’t know if it came from this recrafting or something that happened before.Are you sure? I thought the purpose of this is to have them re-crafted, then take them apart to see if they hit the same holes.
Which would mean they need to be recrafted again?? Maybe I missed something, or maybe you don't want the shoes anymore. This would be something better suited for a cheap pair of shoes off ebay that no one planned on wearing, and was just for the sake of knowledge.
I would say purchase the most trashed pair of shoes of ebay, that AE would still accept for a recraft and document before and after, then disassemble.
I have to check the style # on my pair, but I think they're the weatherproof Daltons. I thought the leather seemed pretty decent, especially for seconds.Y'all fondled the weatherproof Daltons?
Is it me or do they seriously feel really similar to the Indy line leather?
It’s interesting to me that with all of the data that AE collects on customers, they don’t pass any of that info on to customers, in say the order history. Not one of my trunk show orders show up, past or present. Weird that from a customers perspective trunk shows are like, not even part of the company.Just logged into my AE account to check status of my order, and my Jingle Bell-Mok shows shipped, WOOT WOOT!
I'm sure it's tracked and stored somewhere. it just may not be in the regular data storage area, where say you have access to, like in your user profile. My guess is because there is no chance of you repeating the order. Unless they are planning on making things like Shaved Shell a regular option.It’s interesting to me that with all of the data that AE collects on customers, they don’t pass any of that info on to customers, in say the order history.
