    A skilled cobbler could probably pull those back together with some hand stitching, though the stitching will be visible; sort of a Frankenshoe area. Pant legs should cover it sufficiently and if it doesn't bother you, these would be a steal for that price. Overall, a patch job (~ $20) will never be seen by anyone. The real test will be putting them on without them tearing. You'd have to baby that area and be extremely careful with the shoehorn.

    So would this type of repair stand up to recrafting? Assuming they are put back on the original last during a recraft, would there be risk re-tearing the area?

    I suppose you could just plan on only resoles and not full recrafts during the life of the shoe?

    Are the Kenilworths still on sale from the last February sale? Is the $35 off donated shoes deal still active?

    Many thanks.

    How come AE online and stores (I think?) don't carry the Clifton. I think it is one of the best models AE has, up there with the Strand.

    An excellent question for Allen Edmonds to answer. I had not considered that.
    Unless the buyer gets them patched up, then has a TOPY layer put on the soles (I know, I know) to thwart off recrafting altogether? Another option is to cut the heels off both shoes and use them as house slippers...maybe not. :embar:

    The Clifton is a model that Allen Edmonds makes specifically for Nordstrom

    The AE Augusta might have been up your alley then, too bad It's discontinued for now. How about a wingtip or burgundy option, looks like it could fit into your rotation nicely.

    This is not true, and I've seen the Clifton sold in an AE retail store. I own two pairs myself. You can also just call AE and they should be able to help you get a pair no problem.

    Anybody got the Players Shoe? If so, please share your experiences and thoughts. I am thinking this will be my go-to shoe for the summer.

    I have them in walnut calf. They were my first pair of AE's, in fact. They're comfortable and, IMHO, beautiful, and I wear them mostly with suits as well as with the occasional wool pant and blazer.

    I'm not sure if the Kenliworths are still on sale, but from my own experience the $35 donated shoes deal cannot be used on a sale item.
