    Somewhere in this thread someone posted a pic of some boots. They look like the Fifth Streets minus the medalion on the toe. I know that they aren't the Bayfield because they have a leather sole.

    Could someone please help me?

    Thanx!!!

    So I just got the AE x Wolverine Krause boot in the mail. Is it just me, or is the boot REALLY hard to get on and off?

    I hope that's the case. It's putting me off from actually keeping them... I've never had this trouble with any other boot.

    What's the price? Or did I miss it? And may I ask what's different about doing it this way, as opposed to a regular custom order?

    Custom orders have a surcharge. I don't remember what it is. I believe, as of now, all shell cordovan shoes from Allen Edmonds are by custom order only. By doing the group purchase, you get the custom fee waived (I think it is in the $80 range).

    I think you missed it. I think it was $599.

    EDIT: Nevermind. Not sure where I got that number.

    Got my Delray's in today, and I can't decide if I'm being overly critical/picky, but these two things are bugging me. Is this within the normal variances of leather, or is this a screw up on their part?

    The spot I tried to get rid of with some Saphir Reno and some elbow grease....no luck. It appears to be oil, or grease or some such.
