FedEx delivered a beauty on this sunny Sunday afternoon!

At first glance, noticed the gold sticker is not on the box like previous TS (SMU) makeups, but couldn't help but notice the pink tag.

Captures all of the order details:
-Chili Shell
-Split-Reverse Welt (Antique)
-Double JR Sole

Double bagged these! Glad to see AE providing two bags! Even if not the white flannel bag, these are most definitely appreciated!

Quick indoor shot of these before letting them bask in the California sun!

Double JR goodness! :p

Absolutely stunning! Chili is so rich and has multiple personalities!

This is only 1 of 4 incoming from the TS, but if this is any indication of how they've been crafted, then I'm beyond impressed!

For instance?
Natural Patton, Shell Landon, and Navy Suede Strandmok. I wanted snuff on the Strandmok but my SA threatened to tell my wife if I ordered another brown suede shoe.

How do you guys think the MTO promotion will be run? I don’t think it will be just order a shoe built how you want it.

What is this "MTO promotion" you speak of? You just trying to get me all riled up?

@StrandKing, that's the first time I've ever seen those worn in the wild. I imagine they would be hard to pair, but jeans would always be a safe choice. I hope you can track down the green suede pair.

It will be a blue and white Neumok spectator featuring a small Lord Stanley Cup and the words “Tampa Bay Lightning - 2020 Stanley Cup Champions”

:nest:
<edit - for the record, I am a huge Blackhawks fan, but have supported the local team since their first year as an expansion team>

Choose a shoe and customize sole?

I am hoping for at least, pick a style from a predetermined list. Pick a leather type from a list. Pick your sole. Maybe even pick your welt. Color of welt and stitching should be left up to AE. That would make a decent list of ways to get a personalized shoe without creating too much loss of efficiency.

If the leather options and model options are wide enough, it could be great. Otherwise, it's basically just what they have now in another format, assuming welt type isn't customizable.

If Suede and Cordovan Trunk Shows seem to be the norm and are getting a little ho-hum, what should AE offer in the next Trunk Show that would be different, get you excited, and make you order something?
(maybe tag @ae_ashley with your choice)

"From the Vault" models are always interesting! If they're able to bring back discontinued models like they did with the Fifth Street Boot in last year's TS, that would be cool! I also would vote for Natural and Walnut Shell to be offered. Other shoe companies like Viberg release pre-orders for Natural Shell makeups, so it's not like Horween isn't producing them. I've been told people were too critical of the lighter shell not looking as advertised and that's what possibly has killed it. But for a WebGem, that would be awesome!
