    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    AE recommends their Dark Brown Premium Polish. I've used it on this boot and really like the results.

    Walkover is a good suggestion. Also try Gorilla Shoe, which is also USA-made and welted. Here is an example:
    http://www.ebay.com/itm/GORILLA-WED...55?pt=US_Men_s_Shoes&var=&hash=item2a1056168b

    I often see these discounted. I'll bet with a little online searching you find a pair of Walkover or Gorilla - assuming you like the styles.

    Thanks... I would've gone with their Walnut Premium Polish, or with the Light- or Mid-Brown from Saphir.

    Thanks again!

    To follow up, if the "...and grain upper..." was throwing you off.
    Just finished talking to somebody in the shoe bank and they guaranteed it's all calf leather. Apparently that "...and grain upper..." is leftover from a discontinued version of the loafers.

    Thanks, guys! So you don't think the saphir cordovan polish will be too dark for the leather? i'm inclined to check out the saphir mahogany paste, as that seems pretty close in color (per kirby allison's page). but it is refreshing hearing these rave reviews about the cordovan shell polish proper.

    but yeah, for right now, i will just be using reno + brushing.

    Great shoes, although those almost look chili in color.

    Did you use the walnut AE polish? I know everyone likes to talk about the walnut polish darkening walnut leather . . .

    So i got my orange and white Neumoks today. Oddly enough, the laces aren't long enough! I'm a 12EEE, so I think the standard 30-inch ones don't cut it. Anyone have preferences for longer laces? I'm looking for colored ones. Thanks!

    Contact AE customer service. I'm sure they'll hook you up with the correct laces at no charge.

    If not, try the Nordstrom ones. They are 33'' long: http://shop.nordstrom.com/S/1901-sh...extualcategoryid=0&fashionColor=&resultback=0
