    C.I., any self-respecting Louisiana gator hunter wouldn't be caught out on the bateau without his 'Cajun Reeboks'.

    Nordstrom had zero sympathy for AE shoes I purchased that developed very deep creases after less than five wearings.

    AE insisted I give them the shoe so they can replace it. The manager inspected the shoes and said the leather was substandard. He pointed out where AE uses the best leather on the shoes, where it is supposed to crease and where it isn't supposed to crease.

    AE will price match Nordstrom.

    I think Strand in walunt will become your favorite shoe.

    Wish I knew! I really want to get a pair in Burnished Burgundy before September. I don't have a Rack near by. Does anybody know of any other upcoming sales?

    Hi, i'm also new to AE and also about to bite the bullet on the AE strands on the nordstrom website.

    I seem to size up as 8E, according to the AE size guide. However, after reading several threads i understand that the Strand is a 5 last, which is longer and narrower.

    As I live in Australia, I can't go into a store and try them on for myself (best solution) so it is a bit of a gamble for me.

    I own a few Loake 1880 shoes that are size 8.5UK or 9UK with a G fitting and they seem to fit me well if that gives some idea to anyone. And yes, I do have a bit of a wide foot.


    Would just like some advice regarding this.

    Thanks in advance

    Maybe someone else can give you more specific advice if they own some Loakes, but I can't imagine that you would be an 8US if you are an 8.5 or 9 UK, or that you would be less than a EE or EEE if you are a G fitting.

    So I received a pair of 2nds as a gift. However there are some creases and I would like either exchange it or return it for another style. I don't have a receipt since this was a gift. Any solutions to this? I'm not even sure which place he got it from. The shoe is unworn, but it has some creases on the leather.

    The IMMINGHAM is a shoe similar to the AE Grayson... Made for Ralph Lauren. Wish I had some more information or pictures to post. Anyway seems like a nice shoe I wish I wore an 8E or 9E if I did I would order the chocolate suede which is available for $259.

    Would it be stupid to precondition new AE shoes with renovateur before wearing them? I'm not sure wether the leather is dried up if it sits in the factory boxes too long.
