    Thank you! [​IMG]

    That pic is about 6 months old and little out of date (some additions / deletions / replacements) but I haven't re-shot it yet.

    Are you asking if you are still missing the color? The color is Brown. [​IMG]

    And what happens when they crease in a different spot based on how your foot flexes? Sorry, this method sounds like a recipe for getting excessive creasing.

    I think what he's getting at is the brown in your picture and the one you quoted appears to be substantially different. This could be merely due to different camera settings.

    Heel slippage is a big red flag. Take the 8.5D Vernons with you to the AE store and try on an 8 and compare the fits. I know the store is 30 miles away, but you are going to kick yourself a year from now if you hardly wear the shoe because of the heel slippage.

    +1. If you notice any heel slippage, you should seek a better fit.

    Some would say it is the other way around too... In any event the customer service at AE is what sets them apart from pretty much everyone else IMO.

    Rainy, windy and cold with urban flooding switching to snow later in the day. First time in 6 months I have even touched the Cascades. Saphir middle brown (IIRC) cream.

    When I first got them was surprised how long they were and I tried to hand them off to my oldest son (25) who is half a size larger than me. He said they were too long for him also. I ended up keeping them and realized the more I wore them the more I liked them, and they creased where they should. Out of all the shoes I own they are the only ones the secretary has ever commented on and she said they were stylish. Go figure.

    That may be. I wasn't trying to make a smart comment, and it probably is a case of a camera flash or something like that.

    And I certainly didn't intend to insinuate that you were! With that said, it is strange that there is such a difference in colors of the two pictures, assuming neither were treated with any type of leather oil or similar products.

    I agree. That is one of main hold-up with the Cronmoks. They do seem to look quite different depending on the lighting (as many shoes do) but with these I seem to like the color in some lighting but not in others. I am afraid that in some lighting I would look at my feet and do this [​IMG] and in some lighting I would do this [​IMG] or worse, even this [​IMG].

    Thank you guys for your response and suggestion. Since the store does not carry the Vernon in 8D, do you guys know if an AE sales rep would be willing to order and bring it in so I can try it with the possibility of not buying?

    Or a shoe on a different last. That is both the curse and beauty of AE.

    yea lol. The brown between the two pictures are so different. With that being said, the brown leather pics on the AE website is a lot closer to the picture I googled than the one posted.

    So I guess the question is..how do we walk around with 'camera flash on' all day? [​IMG]

    Maybe they are designed to look good on celebrities being chased by the paparazzi. [​IMG]
