    I would just wait around for the next 20% off coupon/sale the Jeffersonville outlet has and pick up a pair of seconds for $350.

    Love AE, but anybody have an issue with the soles wearing down quickly? I've got four pairs of Graysons and the rubber heel goes really quickly, followed by a hole in the sole or the glue coming apart on the front of the toe between the bottom part of the sole, and the top part (thin layer). Maybe it's just the way I walk or the fact that I wear them eight to ten hours a day and walk everywhere, but I do wish the heel lasted longer than four-five months. Is that unusual?

    I have now reached the 10 week mark on one of my MTO's and still no clue when they will be ready. Anyone else waited this long?

    I use heel taps on all of my shoes AE or non-AE, so can't really speak to the heel wear, but the soles are wearing fast if you are rotating through four pairs and they all have that issue. I have sole from my first pair of AE leather soled shoes from Q4 2011 that I have not worn a hole through yet, but they are JR soles. I also have a shoe rotation of daily wears that is closer to 10 to 15 though.

    I don't think its as much of a coupon as it is a 20% off sale. If you don't live near the store you can just call and mention the 20% promo.

    It's a sale that the outlet had in April. Would anticipate they might have it again sometime.

    What (if anything) are you all using to polish/treat your Neumoks? I want to make sure I'm not misapplying anything to the new pair of Olives i picked up. Is polish even necessary?

    Saddle soap as needed. That's it.

    You have 4 pairs of the same shoe? It really depends on how often you wear them, and as you said, the way you walk, long days and locations. It can be normal for heel to get worn down in that time, even though it is shorter than normal.

    I have been suggested to use Leather Lotion on my Navy Neumoks.

    Just got my Chili McAllisters, overall I love them. There are a few tiny defects that will probably wear/buff out.

    Slight discoloration near laces, not nearly as bad as it looks in this photo.

    Little bubble that seems to flex with movement so hopefully it works itself out. If not, not that noticeable.
