    Facet, those look great. You have achieved much better shine that I have been able to. Could you share your process?

    Ahh, gotcha. I thought you were going to immediately send them for recrafting to avoid the problem of the sole having already molded to someone else's foot.

    My Vernons in the wild. This has become one of my favorite shoes. I think they look great with a pair of tailored-fit blue/navy pants.

    Nice shoes!!

    I have the Jefferson in dark brown. There is no doubt the leather is of a higher quality and softer feel. But the price is higher too .....

    The inner of the shoe is still going to remain (somewhat) the same mold as that persons foot. The new cork bed will somewhat act like a reset button, but they explained in one of their videos that they don't replace the inner sole since thats where the real impression of the foot will stay. The cork is there for flexability and insulation, in addition to how it "molds."

    I'm sure given enough time it will wear in well, but with a shoe that has been barely worn, they can still be considered new.

    Speaking of recrafting, does anyone have a before/after pic? They say that the re-stretch the shoe over the last again, which is nice, obviously, but does that mean that they unstich the upper, stretch it over the last again, then re-stitch to the insole? Just wondering the exact process... because if they don't re-stitch the shoe to the insole, whats the point of stretching it over the last again, its just going to remain lose if that insole stitch isn't done again.

    or maybe i'm way off...

    thoughts?

    Not yet! I spoke to someone at AE that mentioned they were supposed to come out mid-month. Who knows how accurate that is, though.....

    Yes, there are. I was at my local menswear / shoe store yesterday and they showed me the new Fall book. There is a Neumok like boot - unlined and available in blue - and the Long Branch which is the wingtip lug sole mid height boot I saw this Spring. There was also a gray boot - and it did not have that strap that was on the design contest boot.

    One of the women I spoke to through their 1-800 number said the new boots won't be out until early October, another lady said what you said - mid-August. I can't believe they don't know for sure!

    Praise the flying spaghetti monster for the lack of the strap.

    Yes, I'm waiting for the Long Branch - the question is when? I would love to get a picture!
