Thought about taking to local cobbler for heel toppy but I have little confidence in them.
Thought two is send to AE for new heels.
Maybe soles/heels?
I am leaning towards heels for now.
Thoughts?

It appears as if they walked more on the outside of their left foot. As long as it’s not affecting your gait, give Ashley a call to schedule some new heels!

I would give the local guy a try. It’s not a complicated repair.
It doesn’t “look” like you need new soles. If they are thin and soft in the middle, you could feel that. A cobbler could greatly extend the life of the soles with a topy if you wanted.

I had heels done by AE about a year ago. They were back to me pretty quickly with no complaints.

I've found that AE's old shell cordovan shoe cream, which looks like this

works very well on one particular pair of shoes that I have. Does anyone know if AE's new cordovan cream on its website here is the same stuff?

Good Afternoon All,

I bought a pair of the Deerskin Vinci's in 11D, which is how the calfskin version and the Verona's fit me.

When I tried them on, I found them quite loose; I sized down a half to 10.5 and still found them a tad loose. So I tried a 10, and they felt comfortable, but I have was told by the sales associate that they would stretch a lot since this particular version of the Vinci is deerskin.

Granted, I was wearing the ultra-thin try on socks at the time and not no shows or regular dress socks that I would usually wear them with.

If anyone has the deerskin Vinci's, which sizing advice would you recommend?

No, not even close. One of the few times that I would say go with Saphir. The old stuff was magical, the new is meh.

Saturday is always errands, errands and more errands. Stayed in the vehicle for one of them so had some time to kill. HM is the perfect errand boot.

The green mako just arrived yesterday. I had sold my blue one awhile back to buy the green one but it sold out before I could snag it. Same for the green/bronze halios.

Found this one finally. A lot of guys aren't fans of bronze cases but I am especially with a blue or green dial.
