I know a lot of the internet bemoans the declining quality of Allen Edmonds over the past few years (or decade if you've been around the block a time or two), but I don't think anyone has tried to actually collect data to prove the point.

If you've purchased Allen Edmonds "first quality" shoes or boots within the past two years, did you have any quality control issues? If so, what were the issues? How were the issues handled?
