I used the "thick socks" brainwashing technique to justify buying shell Daltons in 14B. A year later I had Bayfields MTO'd in 14AA. Now my Daltons are sadly lacking. Learn from me -- don't do it, friends, especially with shell. baldy[1].gif

Also, AE is solid, awesome, etc. I was told that normally the shoebank cannot ship from the Italian store, but apparently Paul gave it a pass considering the rarity and awesomeness of the makeup.

you people are dangerous... I just picked up a pair of park ave cordovans because of you. (at least that's what I told my wife).   Apparently all of my "dress" shoes were bluchers and I didn't even have a cap toe oxford.  No idea why, just oblivious I guess.  Has me wondering though if anyone ever really looked at my shoes and thought I can't believe he wore a pair of cap toe bluchers to this meeting???

Hey y'all,

I apologize if I'm posting this in the wrong thread, but can you tell me when the best time of the year is to buy Park Ave's & McAllister's? and from who? I'd like to get another pair of Park Ave's in black & Chili and a McAllister in Merlot. I JUST noticed they recently kicked up the price. I don't mind getting second quality shoes if you fellas know where to get them.

You are in the right place. The Re-Discover America sale should be coming up. Also the Nordstrom twice a year sale is a great way to get those two models (not in Chili though).

Seconds are available at the ShoeBank or AE outlet stores. Just Google Allen Edmonds Shoe Bank.

You're in the right place. Check out the shoe bank for seconds, and it's best to call direct if you see something you like to snag it before somebody else does. AE's Rediscover America sale (15%-30% off) should be taking place in a couple of weeks; to know exactly when it hits, it's easiest to follow them on Twitter or Facebook.

edit: beaten by FIVE SECONDS. Thanks, mdubs. boxing[1].gif

Call the Port Washington store for seconds. Inventory is visible at shoebank.com, although it's only updated once daily, so it may not be up to date.

 

Right now, there is a sale on Shell Cordovan for $325, which I'd recommend snagging if they still have the color and size of your choosing available.

@mdubs Thanks, man.

@rostov Thanks!

@random-adam Thanks as well

 

Is there a discernable difference between seconds & firsts? I have a few seconds and don't notice anything myself.

 

I have actually called the Shoe bank before - it's where I got my Quinton's

 

If I'm just looking for serviceable AE shoes, do you think I should go the Shoebank route for all of them? I don't know if I have enough to buy all those either.
