    Yes. Site looks sleek, but almost all in Chinese. It gives me an impression that they are being by Chinese and localized their website.

    I had the same problem with mine after about 2 months. I contacted AE customer service, shipped them the shoes with a recrafting prepaid UPS shipping label, and they fixed the shoe under warranty and returned to me at no cost but it did take several weeks. The heel was squeaking when I walked. But contact them first and get authorization, etc.

    So I understand that any capable cobbler can resole my shoes, but what about fully recrafting the insole as well? Worth asking AE if they will recraft both outsole and insole?

    Here are my current AE Leeds as I am thinking about picking a pair up in cordovan:

    No. But in Asia (Hong Kong, Japan and Singapore).

    Ah, I was thinking that you are being redirected because the server is detecting your IP address (and location).

    My understanding of the recraft is that the insole and upper stay the same per telephone conversation with the factory.

    It may be the reasons. But it would be nice to have a link in their China website that can take you to the US site.

    But in saying that - the cork is redone - in effect removing the foot imprint that is the bane of buying used shoes no es verdad? with the cork replaced the inner would probably settle down to its original flat situation I'd imagine.

    Si, por supuesto! You get a new cork midsole.

    Nothing is done to the leather upper and insole, so if that gets damaged that's sad news...

    Timely issue. I am generally loathe to buy used shoes, but have bid on a used pair in a discontinued style with the intent to have them recrafted. Has anyone else gone this route of recrafting used shoes and willing to share their experience?

    I just got a pair of the Townleys that are on clearance on the AE site, and they have the EXACT same problem (maybe even a little worse). Even though they are clearance, they aren't seconds, so I don't think something so noticeable should be on a first-quality shoe.

    I am going to send them back and ask for a replacement, or a refund if they are all sold out.

    I'm liking these more and more every time i wear them. AE needs to offer more shoes in different shell colors besides just black and burg.
