As far as the sale goes - i can't find any info on what shoes might be discounted.  I've been googling periodically for news like every day...

It's going to be $90 or 19.22% off on select style. Only models I know will be on sale as of right now are broadstreet, sanibel, finch, park ave cordovan, strawfut, Tampa, woodstock, carlsbad, new Orleans, eastport, & McAllister. Accessories and belts too, will report while when I get more info.

I can't get excited about this sale. I think you can find some strands and other AE captoe styles for 30% off or so all day at Nordstrom rack. It has to be around 40% off or so before I even think about adding to my AE collection. What about that 2 for $300 deal at regular Nordies? That is something I'll get excited about.nod[1].gif

I doubt you'll ever find strands or park avenues at Nordstrom Rack. Only their unpopular models get there, with the exception of the elusive suede 5th aves

Fair enough, I already have the usual subjects from Nordstrom, so I'm not looking for that sale. I am not sold on seconds yet, so I'm looking forward to this sale. That and the fact that my SA is willing to discount from whatever models I want, hehe... biggrin.gif

They have a lot of miles on them and I'm on the second replacement set of heels. They are the older model which is Cobbler leather and they really were starting to look bad no matter what I did to them. Today I decided to strip them and see if I could start with a clean beginning. Because they are cobbler leather it can be a bit tricky and I was afraid to strip with acetone, they also scratch easily. Which is one of the reasons AE no longer uses it from what I read on a different thread here. I wasn't expecting much but to say I am pleased is an understatement. 

After Renomat then Renovateur and a little brushing. Raw Cobbler leather:

Then a coat of AE wax polish:

Had a lady friend over for dinner today and she saw the whole process from start to finish. When I was done she said wow they look like new shoes. And they do, really wish I had a "before" picture now after the fact. Thanks Patrick!

I mentioned this a few weeks ago - I have and old better pair on Sheltons. I wanted to replace them as they appear too beat to recraft. I used them for inclimate weather. I was told my old pair was made with Cobblers's leather. My new pair came in with calf leather. I called the AE (2nd hand) SA and was told that Cobbler's leather was no longer used because of complaints about the leather. The complaints were that if they get a little scratch it would be hard to cover. I did notice this my old pair has some scratches on the black section that I'm unable to hide with polish.

Also my pair must be a very senior version a the toe area of the shoe sits lower (more flat). Yours seem to be shaped and look like my new pair other than yours being Cobbler's leather and mine being calf.

Another question please - its appears from your picture that the creases apperar to be lessed on the treated pair of shoes. Is that the case?

I have not seen the PA's I'm pretty sure. For sure, I've seen the Hale, Hastings and the hinsdale. And, let's not forget the fairfax (in black and chili!). I don't even look at the loafers since they're not my thing. As far as them being seconds, I have not gone over them with a fine tooth comb, but they seem fine. They are not worn at the soles. I know that regular nordies has a generous return policy and I would certainly remember if they were worn at the soles.

Damn it, might have to jump on some Merlot McAllisters. I'm building my shoe game and while I have the Neumoks, I could use a traditional wingtip.

The Merlot McAllisters look great.  The Merlot McAllister or Burgundy Cambridge will be my next dress shoe.

Same here -- kicking myself for not getting on that Cordovan deal...

The McAllister/Cambridge would round out my collection for now:
Black PA
Brown Burnished Fifth Ave
Walnut Strand
Chili Randolph
(Navy Neumok)

Then maybe it'll be time to start playing around with some other brands...

If the 5 last gives you a good fit, they really are great shoes. The shortwing design is a classic. The only decision is cordovan with a double sole or calf with a single...

Was in one the other day, saw plenty of Weybridges in walnut and black Hinsdales.

 

Also saw a brown suede Fifth Avenue size 12 narrow for only $100, was considering buying it for resale but that's a pretty specific size and look.

 

I recently found a burgundy Clifton for $44. Looks like someone at a Nordstrom scratched one trying it on, I found it hardly noticeable. Beautiful shoes.

Basically, you won't find what you're looking for in Nordstrom Rack.  But if you pop by regularly you'll eventually find a great deal on something.
