Got them from the the Freeport store and they got shipped from the Shoe Bank. I am pretty sure it was just one odd pair in my size, 'cause Allison (from the Freeport store, not to cause any confusion) said I was pretty lucky to score them. She mentioned they were very rare and hard to get, but I must admit I've never tried in the past. Moreover, I actually had no clue they were made by AE until I stumbled on the Wolverine thread here on SF. 

I just got a pair of firsts from a seller in eBay for 299 shipped. Certificate, numbering, shoe trees, and never worn! Now I want a pair of 721s.

So lately I've been seeing many comments about "Allison" being a good contact. I haven't ordered from her yet as Kristle from J'Ville has always taken care of me. I know J'Ville has taken care of many of us here on the board. Is there an advantage of dealing with Allison? Is she giving discounts? I'm all for saving some money!

Allison is our contact for MTO shoes. She works out of the AE factory. She does not give additional discounts.

Allison is for MTOs.

Great deal! Haven't seen them on eBay in the past few days though, but will keep an eye.

And here I thought I was getting something kinda unique when I placed my MTO for a pair of Merlot Strands.... Guess not, oh well.

Maybe you gave them the idea....That's how I would think of it!

That makes 2 of us... Allison did honor the webgem price for me though!

Can someone tell me how the AE Strands fit compared to the Alden Barrie? Size up from my Barrie sizing or same?

Allison's phone number
Allison phone number
Allison's e-mail address
Allison e-mail address
Allison's email
Allison email
Allison's contact info information
Allison contact info information
How do I reach Allison

Hopefully the above covers all the key words and phrases a person might use to 'search this thread' for a method for reaching Allison. If you think of others, let me know, and I'll edit add them. Maybe we can cut these posts down a bit while providing readily findable information.

Wow, that amazes me. I have wide-sih feet with a high instep. Barrie is a comfortable, even slightly roomy fit. Strand is too narrow for me to make work in a D width no matter what the size. I'd have to go to an E.

I could go to an E because of my high instep, but I'm afraid it would comprimise the rest of the fit (which right now is perfect). I just deal with the slightly wide lacing gap.

Those are two different Allisons. The Allison in question does work at the Port Washingtone headquarters. Fwiw, there's another Allison that I know of, who works at the Freeport store.

 

Although the stores could place an MTO order, they can't wave you a custom fee and they won't be able to add the bells and whistles beyond what you'd be able to get on the AE webpage.

I wear the same length in both, but I get normal width on the Barrie last (tried E once and was swimming in them) and E-width on the 5 last.
