    Good Q... in this quality if you can find me a 12.5 D, 12.5 E, 13C, 13D, or even 13E... I would pay you $225. Do let me know if that might happen.

    And I did list them for $400+... before I decided that most of that was "love" for the shoe and not practical value. So, I knocked them back down into reality.

    Seriously, you find a pair close to my range, lemmeno!

    Last MTO landed today... the infamous Mora in Walnut Shell.

    On my wish list of discontinued models, the Mora was a tie for first with the Fairfax; i.e. what started this whole obsession.
    I was on the fence about the Ball and Buck special order and decided to keep trolling eBay and other places for the right look. When Paul made the MTO offer, the Mora was my first choice for MTO.

    These were literally stunning right out of the box... I stared at them for about five mins straight before taking some pics.
    VERY impressed by the craftmanship of AE on these and can't say enough about how smooth and efficient the process was with Allison and the entire MTO "SWAT" team.

    These were to be my last AE purchase for a while until I saw the Pine Rivers.. alas, PRs in distressed brown are on order and heaven forbid some of the special makeup boots posted recently on eBay are released this fall.
    But enough of my story, enjoy the pics wear your AEs in good health.

    Do you have access to a Brannock device? I have found that AE stores use the Brannock as a measurement device. So I think if you have your Brannock measurement, you can refer to this when you talk to the AE people. When you measure, don't forget to measure arch length as well, not just foot length.

    I've seen these and I remember thinking they were too light. If you are contemplating painting them anyway, would you consider polishing them with black cream first to see if a darker shade of grey suits you better. I think they just suffer the "look too new" syndrome. Similar to a new pair of white sneakers. I can imagine the look would become a bit more sophisticated if they have a darker tint. Food for thought...
