    Haha, yup. Actually so as I mentioned when we were last talking about it, it was my right shoe (smaller foot) that was puffing air. I injured it slightly about 4 weeks ago playing softball and it was a little swollen. The air puff went away presumably because my foot was now filling out the shoe better. Now that the swelling has gone down the puff is back. I've gotten used to it, it's not that loud and really doesn't bother me all that much.

    Yes, I'm fairly certain these are on the 2 last. That's what I have read here, and also told the same by a customer service rep at AE.

    Good to have the puff rather than the swelling I guess. Even I am used to it now.

    Nice collection and a great start. The "anything else I'm missing?" Question is a dangerous one, because there's always something. Patriots would be a great loafer, longwing bluchers (MacNeil) and plaintoe bluchers (Leeds) are staples...

    Hey guys...I'm hoping to get some advice. I received a new pair of McAllisters and on the toe there are what appear to be dark lines and the leather is sort of pushed outward along them. I tried to get pics that show it. I'm wondering whether these are worth exchanging because of the perceived defect or if it is not out of the ordinary. Thanks! [​IMG]

    ^ Perfectly typical. Merlot versions tend to show it a bit more. You're fine.

    Here are some pics (excuse the crappy quality) of my pretty basic AE collection. I am going for the Walnut Strand next. [​IMG]

    Were the shoe trees from the factory which came with your MTO the standard trees AE sells - or were they AE trees made for the exact Last of the MTO pair?
