Wearing my navy Maritimes over the weekend for an outdoor barbecue. Ignore my pasty white legs.
 The sales associates are not going to negotiate the price or magically drop them. 
 To go with YoungSweet's post, I will offer that of my ~15 pairs of AE shoes/boots (not including the several new pairs of boat shoes I've been going on and on about), 2 are firsts and the rest are seconds.  My firsts include a pair of brown Delrays I will be selling (since I already have brown Lasalles) and a pair of Shaker Heights I got on amazon for $160.   Of all my seconds, the worst "defect" is a slightly askew toebox stitching on my tan RL Sandersons, but it doesn't...
  Update: decided to keep the dark brown Kirkwoods, as I also had ordered a pair of golden brown Maritimes (and a pair of navy Maritimes).  I also already own a pair of dark brown Sperry boat shoes (bringing my total to 3 boat shoes and 1 pair of beefroll boat loafers).  The Sperrys will be my beater pair.  I'm tempted to just get a pair of dark brown Maritimes as well for once the dark brown Sperrys bite the dust.  I had tried to order some the night the sale was ending...
 I've been very perplexed by the people who have said the Dalton an the Long Branch fit the same.  I own 2 pairs of Daltons that fit identical to each other, and a pair of Long Branch (in the same size as the Daltons) that are significantly roomier than the Daltons.
Yep. Typically they're a summer type shoe for me, so I will mostly wear them with shorts and a T-shirt or polo shirt. Occasionally I will wear them with denim as well. I wouldn't rule out a pair of navy slacks on a casual day at work, though.
So I went a bit overboard and, among the other AE boat shoes, I bought Kirkwoods in both golden brown and dark brown, planning on keeping one and sending one back.  I like them both, though, and I'm not sure which one I like best.     If anyone wanted more pics of the Kirkwood in these two colors, here they are.        
Agreed. The Maritimes and Kirkwoods are beautiful high quality boat shoes that cost significantly less than anything else that isn't garbage like the classics perry line. For me, once you start going over $200 or so, it becomes less worth it to purchase a pair of boatshoes.
Damn.  I tried to order one last pair of Maritimes for my brother for his birthday.  As of 11:50PM Eastern Time, the red "sale" banner was still up on the site and when you clicked on the sale page that showed all the shoes on sale, it showed the Maritimes (and Kirkwoods) as being on sale for $125 still.  I went to add the shoe to my cart after picking the size/width, but it appears in the cart as full price, $175.   I emailed them to see if they'd still be able to honor...
 I'm going down a half size, but I'd like to hear others' opinions as well.
