Those are the ones they had on sale at nordstrom. I am not really a fan of that belt. I think I will get the AE Wide Belt in Walnut when I can find one on sale. Until then I guess I will not wear the strands.Off topic it is nice to have these shoes as I am finally gettibng somewhat of a shoe collection. AE Delrays, park aves and the strands. Ferragamo loafers, gucci loafers, cole haan loafers, and some bruno magli slip on rubber soled joints.
