    I think the brown grained are discontinued at least that is what one of the reviews on the AE site say. You bought them in store?

    Yes, they do appear to be discontinued since I cant find them on the AE website. I bought them in the Washington, DC store.

    When I finally hooked up with Neumok Red and brought her home a few weeks ago, I thought I'd found the shoe of my dreams as she proved herself to be a head turner

    Then late this afternoon, Ridgeway showed up at my door looking like hot sexxx. I knew I'd found the new woman in my life(at least for the next few months.)

    Then a knock on my door this afternoon and Ridgeway arrived dressed to kill and looking beyond sexy. I knew I'd found the shoe of my dreams --- at Least for the next few months...

    I'm assuming that the Kenwoods are not goodyear welted (maybe I am wrong) because it doesn't explicitly say it, but can someone explain their construction?

    Maybe goodyear welting is part of the the 212 steps of Craftmanship?

    My guess would be goodyear welted since they are recraftable and are not part of the AE line.

    They are not Goodyear welted. They are handsewn.

    How long should I wait for AE's customer service to respond if I forwarded them an email with an issue with my shoes?

    Awesome! I just got the ship notification for my black Ridgeway. Also waiting for the red Neumok in a custom size.


    My emails have been answered within two business days.

    You are right. I either misunderstood the salesman or he didn't know (just like he didn't know that AE made the kenwood in brown [​IMG] )

    I just got my Macneil Cordovan seconds this past weekend. I remember seeing someone post here before about an uneven heel and could not find the original.

    Is it normal to have this large of a gap in the heel?

    I have another pair of macneil that does have a slight uneven-ness to them but not to this extent. But that heel is made of rubber.

    Thoughts?
