    For anyone that lives in an area that actually snows in the winter, do you wear your AE's during this season? And if so, how do you take care of them?

    I use rubber shoe covers when I'm going outside in snow or rain.

    now that the argument is over what are all you flat foot guys doing? I'm pretty flat footed and noticed a bulge on the shoe opening also.

    Help me find specific AE model?

    The other day I was on SF and in a thread people where talking about an AE model and I'm can't find the darn thread again and can't remember the model name. It was a totally plain oxford with no brogueing and no cap toe. However, the shoe had very sleek contours, sleeker than than usual AEs and I think the general consensus was it looked like an english shoe. The pics on SF had it in a brown burnished color. I've gone back several pages in this thread and tried searches to no avail.

    Anyone know what model I'm talking about? (It's possible I was in a old thread. This shoe does not seem to be on AE's website so it may not be a current model.)

    TIA from noob

    Do you think it's this one? This is the Harrison. I'm guessing you might be thinking of this, because it's been discussed recently in the thread as you describe. However, this one a cap toe.

    This is from their Independence Collection, which is their premium line at higher price points.

    Anyway, if this is not it, maybe this will job your memory for more details... The other shoe I am thinking of could be the Kenilworth, but that is a blucher.

    Yes, I think it must be the Kenilworth. Thank you! (The Harrison also looks good for an AE with a sleeker siloutte)

    I didn't mean to exclude blutchers in my original post -- though I am still somewhat new with terms.

    It is said that Mn. has a couple of weeks of piss poor sleding a year, so yes and yes. If it is really bad out then the shoes go into the cloth bags they came in and then into the briefcase. And wear snow boots till I get to the office. Rubber soles like the Cascade, Wilbert and Bayfields I just wear them as is. But treat and condition the leather often. Once in awhile I do get caught with leather soles in the wet, first rule of thumb is to dry them naturally without forced heat but also allow plenty of air circulation including the soles. And use shoe trees. If I walk accross salt or slush that has salt in it I scrub the soles ASAP with saddle soap and wipe the leather with a damp rag then condition.

    I haven't met a podiatrist yet that didn't say I have some of the flatest feet they have ever seen. AE sells the black superfeet inserts for $20 and they will take up extra volume in the shoe. Flat feet usually equals a low volume foot. I have found that if a shoe bows without the inserts they still will with them, at least in my case. However one SA told me that it does work for many of the people that she has had try it.

    No one answered me earlier so I'm just gonna ask again. I really like the Amok but most of the reviews say the heel squeaks pretty loud and it doesn't go away. Has this issue been fixed?
    Also does anyone have any of their own photos of the Lucca? I'd like to see what they really look like other than just the stock photos on the site.

    Getting seconds would've been best done last week (or if it's still going on, now) since AE was (is?) having a large seconds sale through their flagship stores. Otherwise, hold off until september and you could get some firsts at 30% off.

    See above^ regarding squeaking. Try google image search for help with the Lucca.

    ^ Perhaps you could look into the larger "Magnum" overshoes...
