    I was thinking the same thing. Almost sounds more like a prank, and your next door neighbor is going to show up at your house wearing your shoes tonight as a joke or something. What kind of a thief waits around at the scene of a crime long enough to open the package?

    Heh, i sent an email to the blockwatch group saying the incident happened and if anyone saw anything to contact me. I'd be very surprised, but very happy, as unlikely as it is.

    I suspect that in broad daylight, the difference would be much more obvious. But sitting on a shelf in a store under "mood" lighting (i.e. not fluorescents), the black and dark brown looked very similar at first glance. Now that I think of it, they weren't Delrays but a different AE shoe that I used for colour comparison purposes (I don't think the Delrays come in dark brown).

    It actually raises an interesting point, in that shoe colours can look radically different in different light settings. I suppose the same is true for all clothing.

    You will get nowhere with the post office. Deal directly with AE on this. We had an awful mailman for a period of time and only got about half of our packages. I called the companies and they shipped replacements since I never actually received what I had ordered.

    Agreed. The odds that your thief was in the right place at the right time and wears the same size shoe as you are too remote. It's either a prank or you've got an enemy in the neighborhood. Did you sleep with someone's girlfriend recently or kick their dog?

    Snuff suede Neumoks

    IMO the shoes are casual enough (despite being balmorals) to be worn with denim, but let me know what you guys think.

    Absolutely, I purchased the snuff Neumok as a casual shoe, and it works well. The unlined suede and oiled single leather sole make it VERY comfortable too. I find the tone on tone lacing a bit dreary and prefer the colored laces instead.

    I agree that the Neumoks are very comfortable. They're definitely more interesting with the green laces, but I haven't worn them with those yet.

    It was an ebay purchase. I have contacted the seller, an obviously high volume person, but I suspect they will feel no obligation.

    Thanks for posting. What was your opinion of the rough grey leather up close in person?

    The criminal's thought process: No sense in taking them if they aren't the right size. :D

    On a serious note, this is horrible. What a loser.
