Suede, in case that doesn't come through clearly.  Made by AE for Ralph Lauren.  $124, courtesy of the Jeffersonville outlet.

And, best of all . . . I'm pretty sure it's an LWB that mdubs doesn't already own!

Very nice, I think I like that a lot better than the Strandmoks.

I never got into either the Strandmok or the Spiaggia - the contrasting stitching turned me off.  I'm very glad I found these instead.  They're a little snug in the forefoot (damn those RL lasts!) so I'm gonna wear them around the house a little before fully committing to them.  But, looks-wise I'm totally smitten.

HaHa. You got me with that one... :-)

Where can I purchase a good cheap shoe horn, preferably online?

post #41614 of 70737

Yesterday, they were $10 each on Jos A Banks.  If you check their website regularly, you'll see 60% off storewide specials.  I picked up a pair of shoe trees for my last set of shoes.

I bought four shoe trees at $10 each yesterday.  Was planning on only buying two (to cover my two-for-250 purchase) but the $9 shipping made me think it worthwhile to plan ahead.

Can someone comment on the exchange policy for shoebank? Just got these in and there is some noticeable streaking(?) around the throat and vamp area. Not sure if it will look worse with wear.

See vamp



Cap toes look a little splotchy? Not as concerned about this.

I picked up a couple gingham dress shirts and a couple pairs of boxers to get the free shipping.  I was considering getting a couple more shoe trees because they were so cheap, but that would end up costing me much more than their $10 price tag haha.

Do they have the same deals in store as online? I have been waiting for the trees to go on sale, but I called the store today and they said they change the sales every few days.

Is it ever possible to get Shoebank staff to inspect pairs of 2nd's that are in the "warehouse"? I'm interested in something but would love a condition assessment before I purchase. I take it this is probably not possible, and that purchasing 2nd's just involves pot-luck?

Don't know if they do this regularly, but my SA volunteered to do this for me with a pair or suede singletons I bought. She said she would go check them out since they were the last pair and white. She told me the issue over the phone, and I proceeded to purchase them. Just be nice, and it couldn't hurt to ask.

During a sale, the shoebank reps won't have the time to personally inspect merchandise, but a sales rep from an outlet will take a picture for you if the shoes are in store.

I've asked for and received a condition assessment before. The reps are normally happy to do it if they have the shoe you're ordering on-hand, but it becomes more difficult when they're ordering the shoe from another store.

I don't know your definition of cheap. But how about this one? Free shipping.

The bay has some - 3 for $11 in stainless and it looks like you can get free shipping. Just go to the bay and search for shoe horn.

I would just polish those.

They will look at them if you can get someone on the phone that is there in the store with the shoes. When you call the shoebank, this is not always possible because they are pulling from inventory in all of their stores. In that case, they might be able to call the other store and get someone that can inspect the shoes, but I would think it would be best to call them yourself directly.
