    kongmw back in the days when I took the bus to work (wow, imagine that!) someone stepped on my dress shoe and I was mad! When I managed to get off the bus there was a big scuff from there the person stepped on the front of my shoe. So I hear ya about the heel getting ripped off. Not cool. Hope you're able to find a cobbler to fix the shoes back up again.
    Dropped them off at a shoe repair shop this morning. Having both heels (heel pads?) repair is going to run me $40. The uppers still look good so hopefully they can soldier on with the new heels for another year or two.

    Wearing my Jack Erwin suede chelseas today, where the top lift came off of the heel when someone stepped on it from the back. Hard to believe I've had these for 5+ years. But year, if there was any doubt what they used for heel blocks...

    Thanks. I guess I'm going to need to sign up for photo hosting site. Crap. Another website.

    Joe -- if you're listening (reading)--storage is cheap now AND I for one would be happy to pay a small membership fee if you had a "premium" membership option that allowed me to directly upload photos. I bet I'm not the only one.

These are NOS vintage Wright Archpreservers--never worn outside. I'm not sure when they were made, but I'm guessing 70's or 80's. I think they compare quite favorably to my modern Crockett & Jones penny loafers in terms of style.

    Nuts--I'm still struggling trying to figure out how to post photos since they changed the forum.

    I think you can look at them on this link. Maybe. Let me know.

    I already wear my Buffalo boots. I love them so much, although I understand that they are not particularly trending in this season

    In all seriousness though, I wore my Higgins Mills boots last weekend to eat dinner out(side) and it was the first time I had worn any of my AEs since mid-March when full time WFH began. Made me kind of sad, but it was nice to wear something other than sneakers again. Felt like a good introduction to fall as well.
    This ^^ I swapped out my winter boots for summer dress shoes and guess what? None of them saw the light of day. The same could really be said for most of my summer shoes. I think I wore my Killshots half a dozen times, if that. My go-to shoes were Stan Smith's and Birkenstocks. Even then, I think I wore each of those a dozen times or so. This pandemic has really cut down on my leaving the house. Unless I'm in cycling shoes of course. Now THOSE I wore pretty much every day this summer. So much so that I had to replace the cleats. Think of it as resoling for cycling shoes.

    Between the reduced opportunities to wear nice shoes AND Tapatalk not working for photos on here anymore, I haven't been able to post photos of even the few times a month I get dressed up with nice shoes.

    And I've picked up some amazing shoes in the last six months. Some vintage Florsheim in shell, some other vintage Florsheims, a pair of vintage made in USA Nettleton shoes that I had a custom patina put on--(oh jeez, those are beautiful), a wonderful pair of John Lobb monk straps (barely used from a member of this forum), a pair of Crockett & Jones penny loafers, a pair of AE Redan saddle shoes in tan and burgundy (second hand, but never worn), and finally, two pairs of AE shoes from the Independence Collection, Jefferson II and Bartlett.

    If you want to see the kind of work the patina artist does, check out Hancore Labs on Instagram. You can see my Nettleton shoes.

    About the John Lobb shoes: Holy wow! I've never held a pair of $1,500 shoes in my hands before. The workmanship is a miles ahead of what you might get from AE (and it should be). Is it five times better? Probably not. But they are beautifully made with great leather. Just flawless. And the AE Independence Collection shoes? Well, I got them on sale for under $200 each--no complaints there. They are clearly a step above the standard AE shoes.

    I wish I had more time to wear them. And I'm going to start posting photos again when I get around to getting photobucket or some such service.
