Eagerly Awaiting My Allen Edmonds

About a dozen years ago, I bought a couple pairs of Allen Edmonds dress shoes. The big selling point of these shoes was that they could be sent back to the factory for refurbishing. I knew, one day, that I would take advantage of their offer. After spending most of the last 12 years either working at Apple or on active duty in the Marines, I didn't have an opportunity to wear dress shoes very often.

After all this time the day finally came when it was time to send them back. Allen Edmonds sent a confirmation e-mail to me when they received them. Tonight, I received an e-mail that began with, "Remember theses?" and a photo of my shoes.

Before photo when my shoes arrived at the factory for refurbishing.
Yup, those are my actual shoes.

The e-mail also had shipment tracking info and a photo of my fully refurbished shoes.

After photo and ready for shipping

My 12 year old shoes look like new - for about 1/3 the price of new pair. I can't wait to get them back.
