    My suede McAllisters and Amoks had that smell too. I think it's what they spray on the suede to protect it...

    Went away promptly. Those look awesome, btw

    Very pretty. If you can post a pic taken without that orange background, that would be even better!

    Wow, that's fast turnaround. If they are keeping pace with that, I'll get mine sometime next week!

    Did they have to tan your shell or something for you??? That's crazy to have to wait that long.

    Haha, I was waiting the last 24 hours for the Chrome remark.

    If nobody did, I was going to do it.

    Can AE take a style that is normally made on a 5 last, and make it on a last more accommodating to a high instep?

    I do not believe that they will change lasts. I am sorry, never hurts to ask, but I wouldn't get my hopes too high.
