    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    If you were wearing crocs, then your shoes may have played a role in your lack of success.

    Then again, you may have issues that go beyond shoes. [​IMG]

    Every week someone posts pics of shoes that AE should be still making. Yet another style AE needs to bring back.

    I'd settle for just bringing the zero last back. Great last.

    9D - They are just a little wide for me. I measure 9.5C on brannock and wear 9D and 9.5C in 5 last. These are the only Zero Last shoes I have worn, and I am guessing that 9C would be a much better fit for me in that last, or possibly 9.5C or 9.5B?

    I'd be curious as to other people's experiences with sizing on the zero last in comparison to five last balmorals.

    Amen!

    Muchas gracias, Senor! The walnut AE polish I added last week really changed their color dramatically from walnut to more orange/chili in color, but I dig it. I'll be using chestnut AE polish in the future.

    So, I recently acquired some odd AE shoes on the bay, which were marketed as suede, and looked like suede in pictures, but which strike me in person more like nubuck or something similar.

    They are brown Barton captoes on the One Last (corporate casual models judging by the rubber soles):

    Any clues as to the material of the upper?

    They fit well at 9.5C, which is not surprising since I measure 9.5C on brannock, but these are my first 9.5C on the One Last (9D Daltons fit kind of tight in the length).

    And my brown suede Cambridges just for sh%ts and giggles (amazing!):

    A few questions on AE products.

    Cotton flannel cloth. Any reason why I shouldn't just use an old t-shirt?
    Is there any difference between AE's carnauba wax and Kiwi's wax polish?
    Last, should the same coloured wax polish be used to achieve a mirror shine or can neutral wax do the job?

    Thanks.

    So I have two pairs of AE's, basically my first good shoes that aren't J&M's from a mall. I have pair of Hale's in Chili (that I LOVE) but seem to only have one real suit that I like wearing them with and pair of black Fifth Ave's.

    I've recently seen the burnished walnut Rutledge and am smitten - but are they too close in color to my Hale's?

    Also, from reading this thread it seems I need to add at least one more pair to my rotation to avoid prematurely wearing out my shoes correct?

    I live in NY and walk to work (only 7-10 blocks) but it's still walking on pavement, sidewalks, etc. Should I be giving my shoes for than a day off between wears?

    I have a pair of Holbrooks that look like that - they are made of chocolate chamois. I'm thinking that is what you have. Chris

    Wow, I'm like 800 posts behind in this thread. So much activity!

    Apologies in advance if this has been asked, but does anyone have a real life example of the chili color that is being offered as the web gem. Would appreciate it! Thanks in advance!

    Currently, I never wear shoes more than once a week. I too started off with two pairs of AE's and rotated them. As I added more and more AE shoes (thanks to calling the Shoe Bank) I was able to give them breaks. In the summer my feet tend to sweat more so a rotation is even more important...but the most important thing you can do is BUY SHOE TREES for you babies. They're on sale right now for $9.90 @ Nordstrom Rack and I assume that's within reach there in NY.

    Looking good and great boots very happy with mine, I originally preferred the Dalton but the fifth has become my fav.

    Hrmm contemplating those chili park avenues but I don't think Chili is any substitute for Merlot which is what I kind of had my head set on.

    edit: that being said the CHili above does look pretty good with Navy

    Given that you already have Chili and Black covered (good shoe choices btw), my vote would be for something in Dark Brown (or Merlot?) next. Just my .02. J

    Yep, got the cedar ones from AE and use them every night.



    Thanks! That's what I was thinking too, I'm also worried about getting something too close to what I have and then preferring one over the other. I'm also curious about getting a pair of boots either Fifth Street or something similar but I'm still not sold. I'll be honest I wish they still made the Hale, I just love it.
