    Gotcha. Thanks. Makes sense. I really like that extra stitch.

    I wouldn't have worn those to the root canal. I'd want the dentist to concentrate on the work at hand!

    Seriously, great shoe. I have the same shoe. [​IMG] I can't decide whether they look better with pants with wide leg openings or more tapered.

    While I think I know the answer already, are MTOs able to be returned or exchanged @ the Allen Edmonds Store? Please advise.

    Not as of yet. A couple days left on the eBay auctions.

    LOL! If they'll take THOSE back after you admit to wearing them 30 times (and they look every bit like you did), then they have a very generous return policy.

    Are you saying that after 30 wears the separation is normal?! I think not, this is certainly a defect.

    I agree. They may or may not take them back. But there shouldn't be separation like this after 30 wears (and maybe not even after 300 wears).

    If the purchase date is fairly recent and he bought them at AE, AE would recraft them for free. Nordstrom may not want the hassle of that and may just replace them. That said, the wear on those soles looks like they may be a few years old, which combined with a non-recent purchase date may mean he is out of luck.

    I'm not saying that it's normal or abnormal as I have no clue what types of abuse OP may have put those shoes through, and neither do you. I'm saying that, based on how they look and the fact that he's worn them at least 30 times already, it's hard to believe that any retail store would take them back. "Like new" is a pretty standard requirement. When the item looks as thoroughly used as those shoes do, even proving that there was a defect to begin with (and not just abuse) could be a tall task. Either way, the people of Nordstrom are saints if they give a refund.

    They have a shaker heights in black in Birmingham, AL store. Note sure why it's not online. Maybe it will pop back up later on.

    Here is my first attempt at dying a pair of shoes navy. I picked them up on eBay, but I am unsure what the style is that AE uses to describe these, they are on the 7 last. Any ideas what the model is?
