I'm planning on swinging by next week and will report back.
That makes more sense.
Could you take a look to see what the selection of 9.5d is like?
I'll see if there's anything left the week after next week when I have time to make it to the city.

Hey guys, got my replacement pair if neumoks (other pair had a bad stitch). While lacing the shoes up I noticed that the leather by the eylets aren't completely stitched together. Is this normal? Would anyone mind checking their pair?
This is just the leather flexed.


This is with the flap pulled back.

they have an 8.5eee

 

the 222 runs long so that might work better then going up in length

Need sizing advice please...

I'm a size 9.5 3E on the Strands and want to get a pair of Franciscans -- should I go with same size or 10 E or 10 3E?

Thanks
post #53045 of 70737

I size the same 10E on both the 65 and the 333

Hi all,

Does any of you know when the next sale for AE shoes is? I was on the shoebank.com website last week( and the week before that, and the week before that...) looking at 5th Avenues and all of a sudden this week the shoes are $300 for SECONDS. Up from $200. I should have pulled the trigger. Will the prices go back down before Jan 1st?

 

The sale can be for 1st quality or 2nd quality.

Thanks, Hunter. I never would have thought of 8.5 EEE. Crazy that I'm now debating between that and a 9.5D.

What color are you looking for?  Nordstrom.com has both the black and walnut Fifth Avenues for $313.

Allison actually gave a similar suggestion wrt to 2-last sizing. I told her 9E 5-lasted PA fits me right though my feet measure 9.5D on Brannock device. She suggested getting 9.5E or 8.5EEE for 2-laste Eagle Country.

Bourbon :]

 

I'm wary of buying from Nordies because there have been several testimonies that the "1st quality shoes" are actually 2nds being sold at full retail price.

Was in the process of polishing my shell Daltons when I ran into a slight detour...

 

If you plan on tipping over some cordovan polish, make sure you don't do it on a carpet..

Will get a picture of the Daltons when they're done, but I've had to put that on hold for a bit.

 

EDIT: Here they are. Need to do a bit more touching up tomorrow.

Oh no! Do you have enough polish left to do all of the carpet?!

Daltons look fantastic, btw.

So I've wiped down my GMTO burgundy strands and AE has definitely changed their finishing for burgundy shell. I used to get a dark cherry colored polish off my burgundy shells, but now the stuff that comes off looks more like Aubergine. Anybody else noticed this?

Allison confirmed to me that Paul personally decided to change the finishing on #8 shell to give it a darker color. I believe they also now use a spray application instead of polish.
