    Gotta say, seeing these photos make me wish I'd jumped on the bandwagon when the sale was happening. Maybe next time. The shoes look great by the way.

    I do. I took them for this thread, but I have no idea how to upload them as I don't have a "flicker" or anything

    Why'd you leave snuff until last? I'd have got it first, then chocolate, then sand.

    (I'm planning on getting a brown suede Loake Kempton in London later this month or early next. That is basically snuff suede).

    Ferret - did you go TTS? The reason I ask is mine came in a few days ago and they feel a bit tight in the toe box area. With them being unlined suede I'm guessing they will conform/adapt to my foot but I was expecting these to have a fuller toe box.

    There were only 100 chocolates the first run and no indication it would be done again. Gotta get the rarest. #trophyshoes

    Looks fine to me. AE isn't exactly known for superior / consistent finishing, but to my untrained eye those look like non-issues that won't impact the longevity or function of the shoe.

    yeah... your right, but I'm still not okay with it. $240 is still too much for boots with 2 flaws IMO. AE firsts are effectively dead to me at this point. I'm tired of acting as their QC. I can find other Goodyear shoes/boots at similar price points (Charles Tyrwhitt, Grenson, JCrew, Jack Erwin) that seem to get the detailing right with consistency. The suede on the boots was absolutely amazing, so I get that this wasn't actually an apples to apples comparison to other brands. However, if the best apple has a dubious looking brown spot, I'm gonna buy the slightly less shinny, but blemish-free apple (to beat the metaphor to death). Thank you for trying to help me get okay with it though

    Now that I've worn these once . . . they are so comfortable. It is almost like wearing slippers. It's more of a single flex sole so it's not going to give you much cushioning or be forgiving on anything but smooth surfaces so I wouldn't use it if you are going to be out walking a lot. But the uppers are so comfortable that you don't realize you're even wearing them. The suede is some of the best I've ever seen. I may have to pick these up in snuff next time they're offered.

    It must have opened back up. I got an email saying the massdrop was on. I ordered a chocolate pair in 13. Looking forward to getting them. I have a foot sweat issue so lined footgear are not my preference. I like the fact these are unlined.
