1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    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.

    That's fair. It is a long thread though; and I've been a lurker for a while and don't remember seeing much

    It was mainly the Saphir wax. I started with a light coat of AE cleaner conditioner followed by a light coat of AE polish. After that, I started with the Saphir wax. A couple of coats on the entire shoe, and many light coats on the caps (probably a couple of dozen light coats). I used a flannel cloth to apply a thin layer of wax to the caps with a couple of drops of water mixed in. Then I used a buffing cloth to remove the wax. I finished with a once over with some nylon pantyhose. Also, a couple of times I would apply the wax to the caps and let the wax sit overnight. I believe that the longer the wax is on the shoe, the deeper the shine will be. The pics I took were taken after leaving some wax on the caps overnight for probably the third of fourth time. Hope this helps.

    Here y'go. Every mention in this thread of the phrase "shell Dalton," all 320 of them, from the very first on 12/21/11 by (of course) Cold Iron.

    I have a pair of Burgundy Shell Daltons and absolutely love them. They do a terrific job of showcasing the Shell because it has such large surfaces. Recommend, but I think they are one of AE's most expensive shoes. But you do get a lot of shell on them.

    ^ I want to buy pair of shell thigh-high boots just so I get maximum amount of shell possible.

    I noticed this when I removed my orthotics from my Scottsdales this evening:
    [​IMG]

    There was no noticeable damage to them this morning when I removed my shoe trees and then placed my orthotics in to the shoes. Is this something I should be concerned about? I have owned these shoes for a little over six weeks and have maybe worn them 15 times, all with my orthotics. It's distressing to see damage to my shoes from what I consider to be very normal wear.

    Edit: Looking further inside the shoe with a flash light I can see that this is also starting to happen on either side of the ball of my foot. There is no problem what so ever with my Ashtons, So I assume this entirely has to do with the soft rubber/foam sole of the 1511G shoes vs the harder sole of the 8-678 shoes.

    As said before, only work with the department manager - not a sales associate.

    Managers can provide any size, any style, any color, plus a professional fit. Anyone else is a risk.

    If you wish to contact the manager I work with, send me a private message.

    There are supposedly several new suede shoes coming out in the Fall. IIRC, I think a sude Strand was one of the anticipated shoes (not sure on this). I would wait to see what comes out.

    Read through this: http://oldleathershoe.com/wordpress/?p=122

    AE's Premium Polish is a Cream Polish, as described in the article. Don't confuse this with AE's Shoe Cream, that you may see on their website. It has an even lower wax content than the others, and has a much higher dye content.

    I think 100 pages back, a few posters warned everyone to stay away from that website. Supposedly a sham.

    It's a scam website. Do not order from them.

    Did you mean to respond to the post about the website the previous poster was asking about? The SF member is supposedly legit and others have commented positively.
