    [​IMG] How many women have run away screaming or quietly slipped out the back door when you weren't looking? Based on the way you described your relationship with this board, I can see the following scene unfold:

    Her: "What are you doing?"
    OptoDoc: "Taking pictures of my feet. I've got a bunch of buddies on the internet that I've never met, but we take pictures of our feet to share with each other."
    Her: Blank stare.
    OptoDoc: Wiping a tear from his eye, "I love those guys."
    Her: Continued blank stare, while waiting for the punch line.
    OptoDoc: "What? I'm not making this up. Look, see, I have pictures of all my friends on my hard drive."
    Her: Look of abject horror when she sees OptoDoc's entire hard drive is filled with pictures of mens' feet.
    OptoDoc: "See, this is Cold Iron, he really likes boots. And, Seven Fold, he really likes his shell leeds. And . . . hey, wait, where'd you go?" *sound of the back door slamming as OptoDoc goes back to looking at his pictures of shoes and talking to himself.

    Not a ton of availability in my size, unfortunately. Still, I did cop a tan suede Amok for $99. That's hard to beat.

    Is 1/8 inch the general rule? This doesn't seem like much.

    1/8 is the general rule, but it differs by size of shoe.. I am pretty sure, anyone can chime in if I am wrong about this, but depending on what size shoe you wear, the shoe has a starting measurement across the widest part of the shoe, then it goes up 1/8 inch per width.

    A size 8 would start at a smaller width than a size 12, but the increments go up by 1/8.

    What size are the dundees you just got?

    haha I had hopes of getting a shell dundee as well but alas it was gone when I emailed the shoe bank about it.

    They had Bayfields and Amoks in my size. I picked up the Amoks for $99 (already have the Bayfields).

    I wish I had bought the black Players' Shoe. I have them in walnut and wear them quite a bit.

    Okay after a lot of searching and without much success, what are people doing for edge dressing on Walnut AEs? Also, I am wanting to strip off what is on there currently as it is looking a little spoltchy (sorry no pics at the moment). My cobbler said to use sand paper to get the old stuff off and I also read the same somewhere here on SF. Anyone have experience? Also, the AE sales guy said some people prefer Chili edge dressing as the Walnut is pretty transparent. I don't want to go darker then hate it and can't change it. So, if anyone has some after pics that would really help me. I have a pair of Strands and 5ths in Walnut.

    Thanks
