Are you near an AE store? I would recommend going to an AE store and get fitted by someone. Nordstrom's SA may not be knowledgeable about different AE lasts and how AE shoes may fit. Plus, AE stores should carry various width sizes. If this is your first AE pair, make sure you get the right size. Black Friday maybe great but I've seen the Park Aves on sale through out the year. Don't rush yourself just to get the sale and end up with a pair of ill-fitted shoes.
+1 to this. Most Black Friday sales are no different from the rest of the year. Companies know that customers expect a sale, so they just slap "BLACK FRIDAY" on top of their usual ad' and watch people flood in. Rather than thinking logically and critically, people just assume that BF sales are some of the best prices of the year. My gf and her friends bought a shxt ton of Victoria's Secret on BF last year because of the "sale." She had been getting 25-30% off coupons all year long and never bothered to use them, but when BF came along, somehow, it was different.
The AE prices that I've seen are the same from the last sale. Why rush? It will be back for Christmas.
