    I think most of us know the Cliftons, but man until I actually saw the Niles, I couldn't agree with you, but now that I own them totally agree.

    You actually can get a replacement at the same price if under "Reason for return" you choose "Defective/Does not work properly". I'm fine flagging them as that since they're not first quality. However, right now this is not an option for me since it says:


    Why can't I get a replacement?

    We can't offer a replacement for this item because it's out of stock. You're welcome to return the item for a refund.


    I've done this in the past for another pair of AE from Amazon.

    Would like some opinions. These are my new burgundy shell Daltons. I've seen #8/burgundy shell boots with an antique edge treatment and really liked the look. The question --- do you think it would look funny if I sanded off the black edging and used some antique (maybe chili) sole edge dressing? I was set on doing this before I got these boots but now I'm not so sure. I know I won't be able to do the top where the welt actually is, so that would remain black.

    I don't want to send them to say B.Nelson now to have them resoled with antique edging as they're so new.

    I also have the J.Crew/Alden #8 PCT boots. These pose the same problem but I wonder if they are a better candidate?

    It looks more like brown cordovan than truffle, but it still looks nice. All the details were as i asked, poron insole, natural outsole, level heels.

    A bit of vamp creasing, but they fit spot on, and they take a good shine. Excuse the trouser shortness, i was taking my own picture :embar:

    I think you want to brush and buff the crap out of them first, before trying any polish. The natural oils will smooth out a lot of the scratches. But it takes a lot of elbow grease. Also, try rubbing your thumb over one of the spots to see how much difference it makes.

    i am pretty sure the 721 were also made by AE.
