    Because it happens very frequently with AE for all foot shapes. The worst ones look like that without a foot in them!

    Take a look at the AE thread. Ill bet you'll see this and the mention of bowing occurring quite a bit. I know you can see this mentioned on Amazon in their customer reviews, at least on the Park AVE and I imagine its mentioned on other shoes as well where the customer had to replace their shoes once if not a couple of times. AE is quite well known for their customer support, but they are also fairly well known for their sloppy quality control as well.
    Exactly,

    Quote:Indeed. I have seen that all too often in brand new shoes sitting on the shelf.

    We can make a boot like that with Enzo Bonafè if you're willing to pay the custom pattern surcharge.
