I'm referring to the shoe department manager at Nordstroms who will price match just about anything, including AE. But the Nordstrom Summer Sale typically far exceeds anything that AE has on sale for styles and colors. Aside, the department managers will take the time to professionally fit a customer in seeing what "lasts" will work and won't work.Quote:

Shoe storage question..right now my shoes are in leaning towers of AE boxes...was considering some shoe racks like the ones on sale from AE....My concern is the dust factor. Based on the number of shoes I have most are only getting worn 2 to 3 times a month. Does the shoe rack make sense? I do not have a closet to keep the racks in to make them less of dust targets.Quote:
Ouch. Leaving high quality shoes to the open air of a room reminds me of raw bacon in the forest where the wasps will hone in for the damage. Brogued shoes may require tooth-pick types of tools to clean out the holes of they get too clogged.
Although there are few remedies to keep high quality shoes completely dust-free, if someone is going to look forward to investing in 10 to 30 pair ($5000 to $15,000) of leather shoes over the years, then my opinion is to invest is a glass door shoe case, in order to protect but also to admire. Some samples here:
For the woman of the home
For the man of the home
For the man's suits
For 60 pair of shoes and boots
For 24 to 36 pairs of shoes and bootsQuote:Originally Posted by Scottyb06
No offense my friend, but this seems like a lot of work and you can get Strands for roughly the same price anyway provided your purchase seconds during a sale. Last summer during the Nordstrom sale they had Walnut Strands for $229 and my local AE store matched it without issue (and even sent me a pair with the v-tread sole which I prefer). If you want Strand golf shoes then go for it. But, if you're simply looking for a good sale price on Strands $199 isn't that hard to achieve...
I absolutely agree. Plan your monthly budget, and then compute your 6 or 12 month allocation - and buy smart when the annual sales arrive. Yes, the Strand (in firsts) at Nordstroms was in the $220 range, including a satisfaction free return within 6 months of wear to make sure the size was professionally fitted.
All my best,
post #42843 of 707374/16/14 at 1:04pmNordstorm is definitely the best place to buy AE, and from my experieence, the best time to purchase first-quality AE shoes is during its semi-annual sale in July. But it's not going to be $220 since that price was before the price increase. It might be closer to $240 when it's all said and done, which is still cheaper than the current $260 deal for the Macallisters.
From my understanding, only one of AE's signature shoe will be on sale during that time. Last year was the MaCallister in black.post #42844 of 707374/16/14 at 1:13pmQuote:

Those look pretty slick! Do you have one for each color - black, brown, burgundy? I just use old t-shirts now but I'd love to try something that doesn't slide around on my hand the way a t-shirt does.post #42849 of 707374/16/14 at 1:50pm
A reflection of the day...
Was strolling on AE's site when the discount email hit the deck. I was ramming my mouse the best I could, and boy, the McAdam boot was right in front of my eyes.
Yet, when I clicked on my size (or it should be noted as the closes size - 10.5 Ex3), the only label is sold out....
Gosh... I told myself the day couldn't get worse... Rain in the morning, cold, cold wind and then I just met my favorite pair of balmoral boots...post #42850 of 707374/16/14 at 2:04pmpost #42851 of 707374/16/14 at 2:06pmpost #42852 of 707374/16/14 at 2:13pmQuote:
It's 35% OFF the current retail. Last year the "advertised sale" included six (6) styles (see below quote from last year):Quote:
In addition to the above, the shoe department manager was able to offer other styles at 35% off, any size, any color, by working direct with the customer.
To get EARLY BIRD private investigation, I signed up for a free, no credit check, Nordstrom's Debit Card (comes out of bank account) that added Nordstrom's Rewards as a customer. This gives an extra 10 days before the public gets noticed.
