    So I picked up a pair of AE a couple of months ago and have worn them for about 7 times now. I've noticed deep wear on the soles, especially the stitches are about to be broken.

    Any suggestions on what i should do at this point?

    Thanks guys![​IMG]

    Looks about normal. Stitching on good shoes is done using a lockstitch, and a few broken stitches won't cause the shoe to fall apart. Can't see the whole toe end in your photo, but you might want to put a tap on there to reduce wear.

    These were new when you got them? The sole has the look of the after effects of wearing in the rain or walking on wet ground, but the stitching seems problematic after only 7 wears - not sure how you managed to do that - rough terrain? I think it'll hold up structurally, but if you don't like the appearance, you could have your cobbler attach a vibram/topy.

    Victor Xum welcome to Styleforum. Politely raises excellent points. Showing us a photo of the shoe without providing any information about your wearing habits cannot yeild a suitable response. Please tell us about your day to day wear and terrain. Also, do you drag your feet when you walk?
