no. They can ship to you.
E Lexington's today:
I missed those 2 for $200 sales @ the outlets
My fifth avenues got ruined with salt and water damage. How can I prevent this in the future (aside from not wearing them in bad weather)?
Overshoes. SnoSeal also works well but then they won't shine as well.
I don't think I see any cracking in your picture. What I do see is that the welt is coming apart from the sole of the shoe. It's not really that huge of an issue in my eyes unless something gets stuck between the two layers and it starts deteriorating from the inside out. The stitching on the welt through the sole should hold those two pieces together.
That was my first impression as well.
Very nice! Essentially Sanfords built on the 1-511 last? How old?
Can you post pictures? Are you really sure they are ruined?
Nickrut - If you do pull the trigger on the AE Rutledge, please let us know how they fit relative to the 5 last - Thanks
I just got a pair of Rutledges, and today is the second day I have worn them. I have lots of AEs on the 5 last, and so far these seem to fit well. They are a little longer in the toe box, but that shouldn't pose an issue. I love the 5 last, and so far these seem to be comparable. No issues at all. Great fit.
I have bad-weather beater shoes that I wear when it's horrible out. I just shove my "nice" shoes into my bag and change once in the office. It's a little bit inconvenient, but a lot less so than buying replacement shoes.
I doubt they're ruined. Follow the shoe care thread for awhile and you will see some amazing restoration projects.
Depending on the weather, I either carry my shoes or throw a pair of Swims on. I picked up a second pair in brown for $30 a few weeks ago from AE.
Added some walnut/brown Sheltons to my collection during the last seconds sale, but I'm worried about the stitching along the sole:
The stitching is exposed for an inch or two instead of being hidden in the recess. Is this something that you'd worry about wearing out quickly? If the threads wear down in that spot, could that lead to the entire sole becoming unstitched?
