A couple months ago, Nordstrom Rack had a AE event. Most AE were $80. Picked up a pair of black Park Avenues. Couldn't really find any big flaws. There was some irregular stitching after it had gone around the shoe and where it joined with the beginning.
Highly doubt you'll be able to find much at NR anymore...but don't forget about discount chains. (though normally, AE's are like $180 at NR)
