I have the BB fifth ave and I LOVE it. So comfortable, I also have thin? feet?

PS.. I ordered some seconds but I didn't get a tracking number... I thought they provided that?

I'm sure they could provide you with one if you called them back.

I also have thin feet, and absolutely love the walnut BB Fifth Aves.  They are my favorite in the rotation right now.  They fit a bit tighter than the reg AE one, but much more comfortable, almost feel bouncing as I walk.  I also like the rubber sole, they hold up better in this wet weather. 

 

Don't want to speculate anything but i feel like the leather was much superior than the AE model.  My Fifth Aves don't crease as much as the Strands or Park Aves that I have, I wonder if they have better lining.

Here is a shot of them with about 20 wears.

Those look nice!  For what it's worth, it's a myth that higher quality leather creases less than lower quality leather.  There is probably something coincidental going on, or it's just natural variation between hides.

I don't see the LBs on the list of clearance shoes on the website so they probably ain't available for MTO at the clearance price

Here are my factory seconds burgundy cordovan Leeds 8.5D, another great transaction with the Shoe Bank!

 

The shoe has some slight wrinkling on the side of the right shoe, nothing I can't live with. Very satisfied with this purchase and I think these will see a lot of use over the years.

Those are awesome.  Those wrinkles will probably work themselves out over the long run.  Enjoy them - you got a sweet deal.

I don't know if I can call from my phone. Also I'm in Mexico City, I guess that would be expensive. :(
