    I called an outlet and asked about boots in size 8B, (asked about both bayfield and dalton) but was told AE doesn't make any boots in size 8B at all. Can you guys confirm this? Rep said custom crafting would probably be available for $125 over retail, but that would put me in the $500 range, which is a bit steep for my tastes.

    Guys I have noticed lately a bump in the insole like in the cork bed does go away after a few wears and a bit of pain. Is the a case of not spreading the cork foot bed better. Today is the first day for the Krause and man the left side is killing in the ball

    My footbeds are fine and I've worn the boots a couple of times already. I am noticing they are might be a hair big at size 11 even tho I wear an 11D on the 5 last.

    Yes, this is what is going on. Sometimes the cork isn't perfectly even, and as it cools it may have some slight variance in thickness. As long as it flattens out when the footbed conforms to your foot, I wouldn't worry about it. This is another reason not to wear the shoes outside until you are sure that they are comfortable though.

    I was given a pair of used AE McAllisters and I figured I should start taking care of them. The leather feels like plastic. Is it due to a buildup of wax polish? I gave it a coat of Reno, but it didn't help much. Should I use the Renomat instead? TIA.

    They could be corrected grain - in that case they will feel plasticky no matter what you do. They will hold up very well to almost anything, but look and feel plasticky. I imagine that's why AE went away from it. A pic might help.

    It may be a defect. I have had to return pairs to both AE and Alden for this exact problem.

    Ordered Long Branches from Jay. Excellent value since I lucked out with firsts in tan. If you were looking for Long Branches, this is the time and Jay was really a pleasure to talk to.

    Why settle when AE has the exact size you want available. Send those 7.5Es over here!

    Seriously... Track down the size you really want else you be kicking yourself later.

    Oh I believe it's a defect but after few wears at least for me it goes away. My problem is recently its been happening allot to me. This year four pairs had that problem.

    Both are versatile but probably the Clifton. Of course I like both though!
