    otherwise new and perfect?

    Depends how much details like that bother you (because nobody else will care...but some people would be too bothered knowing that it is there).

    Is there a "make an offer" option? Shoot for 75 of you don't have a problem with the defect as long as the defect is suitably repaired so that it won't open up on that seam

    Like others say, shoe trees and shoe conditioner. Creases are something we cant change-everyone will crease their shoe differently. I've noticed people who are lucky not to really form creases, whereas my creases tend to be large.


    I think that specific defect is a matter of choice. For $100ish, if it wont bother you, its still a good deal. But thats conditioned on you actually being okay with it

    If it were me, I would either bid $50-75 or pass and pick up a perfect pair this Summer during Nordstrom's Anniversary sale for $199.

    Here they are!
    AE Daltons in Walnut Cordovan

    They fit a little more lose than other AE shoes on the same last. The fit in the toe box is spot on but my heel does slip a little. Besides from this minor fit issue i'm loving the way they look.

    My dad is looking for new dress shoes. Something that go well with chinos and trousers. Park Avenue or Fifth Avenue will work?

    The Strand, or maybe the Sanford. The PA is fairly formal, though I like the Fifth Ave, it's a touch more formal than the first two.

    Does anyone have experience with the Vinci from the Seven collection? Since I gave up on the Kenilworth, I have been looking for a replacement plain toe blutcher. Any suggestions?

    Depending on whether or not his intention is to wear it with suits as well, I would cast my vote for the above Sanford or maybe the Macneil. A balmoral (strand, park avenue, fifth avenue) is more of a suit shoe (in my opinion) with the park avenue being the quintessential choice. However, if he wants it to wear more casual, such as a dress shirt and chinos/slacks, I might opt for a shoe with open lacing.


    I do not have experience with the Vinci, it looks nice, but I according to AAAC it can not be recrafted by AE. You would have to have it done elsewhere. I personally really like the Leeds, have you considered those?

    I received my Walnut Shell Strands today. They look pretty good after a preliminary cleaning and brushing. Apparently, whoever finished my pair was of the opinion that he/she needed to add more color to my shoes. :facepalm:

    Here's how they look now.

    Nice! I was thinking about those shoes as I was using saphir on my brown shell strands last night. They came out beautifully IMO. Thanks for the pics.

    I agree with the other poster, both of these shoes are meant to go with suits and are too formal for chinos. How about a pair of Strands in brown or walnut? I think the Kenilworth in brown or walnut would work as well. The LaSalle in chili or brown looks nice too. All three are very versatile shoes.

    Anyone owned/tried a Larkin? Not avail in stores due to closeout, wondering about fit.

    Hm.. they don't show the last. Maybe you should email them and ask - with that info, more people will be able to comment.

    Are you looking specifically for an orthotic shoe? I'll bet it looks bulkier in person.

    Just received my Lombards in Walnut. The color is a lot lighter than I expected, however I really like them and they fit perfect.
