1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    The medallion on mine is off, but I decided to keep them as I didn't think I would get another chance at walnut shell strands at that price.

    I tried burnishing my lombards. First time I have ever tried doing this, and I am fairly happy after the 45 min trying. They will get better the more I do it. Here is a pic[​IMG]

    thx shiny, I contacted AE today and they will be replacing them for me, not because of the medallion being off but
    more so with the heel splitting. I was surprised that they would do this for me because it was purchased through
    aafes military site.

    To add to my earlier comment, this is why I appreciate the service my local AE store gives me. The times things have been wrong with manufacturing, they personally call the factory, talk to the person in charge of QA, and ask them to personally pick me a pair off of the line. That, and you get to see the shoes in person :)

    to the guy with the walnut strands, try standing on them for a bit. they may just need a little pressure to seat the heel rubber. If not, a quick squirt of glue and its done.

    My issue is exactly where you drew the red line, not the bottom crack. I hope AE is listening. It appears there is a quality control issue popping up too often in the same spot to be "rare."
    I love the look of my shoes but i bought them with long term in mind and now I have concerns... may have to rethink my next purchase options. The good news is, AE has a reputation for superb customer service.

    Especially in plain toes, like the Leeds, shell is great. The creases or rolls give the shoes their character.

    Agree with your list, but will add that with a little maintenance, just brushing after each wear, shell will look fantastic. also, AE shells come with better J. Rendenbach soles, which will wear better than AE's standard soles.

    Bucksfan, you might know this: is AE strictly having shell shoes MTO?

    That's my understanding. I hear it is primarily to reduce the $ they have tied up in inventory, in the higher cost and slower moving shells. That said, i anticipate they will still have the stellar customer service, just a longer turnaround time.

    They seem accessible given the price. It appears they are from the AE line so the quality might not be great. I think AE's retail shops are supposed to get them in this week (at least that's what a SA in San Francisco told me last week).

    I'm expecting to have a pair of Sedonas to try on this weekend. I will post additional details afterward. The sale price is very low. My expectations have been adjusted accordingly. Nonetheless, the AE "rough" leathers are somewhat unique. I haven't seen any other waxy red leathers. My red Neumoks have served me very well and I suspect the Sedona will fill that gap for anyone looking for an unusual shoe.

    Nordstrom doesn't seem to carry Leeds at all.
