Allen Edmonds: Official Thread - Page 12

post #166 of 201
The styles and colors that have been eliminated from the Spring 2007 collection went on closeout December 11 for firsts and are now 25% off at Allen-Edmonds outlet stores. Current-production seconds have been on sale at 15% off throughout the month of December. Those seconds from the recently discontinued styles will be offered at 25% off. This should be $171.75 for those styles that currrently retail for $305 for firsts.

An unusually large number of styles are being discontinued for the Spring 2007 collection, including the Byron in all three colors, the Hastings, Bergland, Stockbridge, Stanford, Mapleton and quite a few others.

We had a thread on this a few weeks ago on the AAAC forum, but I don't know how to post links.

Go to the desired page on AAAC, then copy/paste the url, should work, right?

Sorry for hijacking this thread.

1) Can someone please tell me where I can get new Allen Edmonds shoes (either first-quality, seconds or discontinued models) on discount in LA? I am primarily looking for black shoes.

2) What range of prices do I expect to pay?

I am sure I can find some information if I am diligent in using the search function but I am in a rush and may I trouble those of you who are familiar with this to give me a quick answer.

Thank you very much for the trouble.

I considered posting this in the quick question thread, but I think it is complex enough that it would be out of sight before anyone responded.

Looking on the Allen Edmonds website, the 1 Last is said to be similar to the 7 from the heel to the ball of the foot, just the toe is fuller. I have a pair of MacNeil's (7) and recently got a pair of Bayfield boots, and so I have a couple of questions for those with more experience and exposure than I have. There is a slight size difference, the MacNeil's are 11D and the Bayfield are 10.5E (the better size for me). However, I feel more contact, if not to say support, in the arch area from the MacNeils - the waist of the shoe seems to wrap around under the foot, cradling the arch. This is not my experience with the Bayfield. I like the Bayfields, but I'm going to have to drop in some Dr. Scholl's arch support insoles in order to get the same effect, and I seem to need that effect. (The MacNeils, for all their overly long fit, are the only shoes I can wear without some sort of arch help.)

Do you think this is a difference in last number or a difference caused by the E versus D last? Put another way, would 10.5E MacNeils feel more like my 10.5E Bayfields or my 11D MacNeils?

I know the best way to do this is to walk into the store and try them on, but the last time I was in the Allen Edmonds store they were out of stock on MacNeil in 10.5E. The internet is the next best thing!

Title says it all. I want to buy a pair of Allen Edmonds Park Avenues on line and wonder where I can find the cheapest price.

Thanks for the help!

^^^ Used AE PA's for $250? Not a great deal.

OP, check eBay. You can find good deals (~$200 for new PAs) if you are willing to wait a few weeks. I just picked up a pair for a friend at that price. Also, some retailers (Benny's here in ATL) have AEs for less than retail. I think PAs at Benny's are $250 or so.

Edit: Online Benny's sells PAs for retail, so the discounted price must have been in-store only or a sale (although I don't recall seeing them listed as "sale" when i was there last).

I just got a pair of AEs from a local store that sells factory seconds. They do sell online, though their prices don't match up with their in-store price. You could give them a call and I'm sure they'd give you the in store price. I think the Park Avenue's were $220. Their website is about as glamorous as the store - http://www.searsshoestore.com/ . It may not be pretty, but I can vouch for their service.

I believe that AE is 10% off at Benny's right now. You will pay 8% tax on it though making it equivalent to purchasing online. It has been 15% in the past but I have not seen it higher. Maybe someone else can chime in if they have observed a higher discount.

Can't you get AEs at 20% off every day at Jos Bank? They now have an exclusive line of AEs---different name, looks like same shoe.
post #176 of 201
Ebay is the best price for firsts. The Shoe Bank obviously for seconds. JBank for B&M. Nordstroms if your patient.
post #177 of 201
Wait for another sale at Shoe Bank. I just got strands there for $187. Some people were getting Lombards for as low as $135 while I was quoted $172. Unless you absolutely need them now wait.

AE also use twitter to announce events, which is an easy way to track when the have promotions. Their recent 2010 twelve days of XMas promo featured 20% various products including their shells for a day during that period. I continue to regret not buying then.

Try endless.com. They have Park Ave's for 20% off. Combined with 10% cashback from MrRebates, they will come out to $234 shipped. Great deal for 'firsts'.

Can anyone from Houston tell me where is the nearest place from the IAH airport where I can buy a pair of AE Park Avenues and a belt?

Thanks in advance.
