    Interesting I am also a 9D and went half size down in the Patriots. The length and width are snug, but I am still having trouble with the strap area. They don't seem to have stretched much at all.

    My bourbons strands came with the new heel, and my recrafted walnut strands.

    You know what I did notice.... see the little pattern/design along the inside perimeter of the stitching? My recrafted strands didn't come with that, they are completely flat, no design. Hmmm...

    Nice. I returned a pair of cappuccino in 10.5B back a couple months ago, was curious to see what you got since I know there aren't many left.

    Yeah, you aren't alone there. They don't seem to do the extra decoration on the recrafted soles.

    There are plenty of states that don't charge any sales tax on shoes, so it doesn't matter if there is a retail establishment in those states or not. NJ is one of these. I will have to check to see if they charged me tax.

    Thanks, gents.

    Just some Renovateur, which I let dry for 5 or 10 minutes, and then went at them with a horsehair brush.

    Regardless where you buy the shoe if said company has a location in your state they are supposed to charge you your local tax rate

    Which is 0 in some states. I don't get charged sales tax when I walk into a NJ Allen Edmonds retail location and buy shoes.

    No time for classic styles. These guys are busy cranking out great new shoes like this one!

    (Now where's that new shell?!)

    Maybe I was being a bit skeptical, but the recrafted sole as well felt much harder than the normal soles. I received my bourbons the day before my recrafted strands, and could have sworn the soles were rock hard compared to the bourbons. Maybe my mind is getting the best of me.

    One issue I will have going forward, they better be able to re-sole my cordovan strands with JR. I dont' care if I have to pay a premium... In fact I am going to email them to see if that is possible.
