Quick question:

 

Where is the best place to buy a pair of burgundy Clifton's since they are discontinued? I found them on Nordstroms.com for $295. Can I find them cheaper somewhere else?

i think this is now a special order especially for Nordstrom. Wait for the Nordstrom Half Yearly or Anniversary sales.

And last 8-108.

And.. awesome shoes. I have a pair in brown, and they consistently get compliments.

Thanks. What is the difference in discounts between these two sales?

I'm not sure. Some folks here have been talking about different shoes for the different sales. Maybe someone can chime in.

As far as pricing I do not believe there is a difference between the two sales. Anniversary is a far better sale in terms of options of styles. The half yearly coming up Nordstrom only has 3 models going to be on the sale. Anniversary will have some of the more sought after styles like the PA or strand in addition to probably 5-7 other models.

Half-yearly is usually to clear out the seasonal stuff, while Anniversary sale has some good discounts on certain staples and new items for Fall.

Thinking about the neumoras, cordovan leeds or cordovan cambridge as my next shoe. I'm a perfect fit for the 5 last (2,7 and 8 lasts are too narrow in the toe). I've heard that the neumoras run big and the cordovan cambridges run big vs their 5 last counterparts.

 

Would it be necessary to size down for all these shoes based on your past experiences?

 

Thanks!

They did allow me to try on a different shoe size even though they knew before hand I wasn't making a purchase there.

Odd - I've returned seconds at both the Sutter and Embarcadero locations in SF. The clerk at the Sutter store was a little cranky but it seemed to be his general disposition. He said nothing to indicate it wasn't normal or acceptable to do so.
The clerk at the Embarcadero location seemed more than happy to take the return.

Hi guys, heading down to San Diego for a week this July, and thinking of making a trip to the Costa Mesa store. I've never been to an AE store but do own 7 pairs. Is it worthwhile to drive up there? We're staying in Del Mar, just north of SD

I think a trip to South Coast is always cool. Besides, you can also hit up Nordstrom's Rack afterwards for more AE shoes

Hey,

 

So I just bought my first pair of Allen Edmonds, the Brown Kenilworth (Seconds) in size 8.5 D online.

 

Unfortunately, I'm not sure if it's the right size for me. When I put my foot into the shoe untied, there's about a centimeter of space between my heel and the shoe. However, when I tie the shoe as tight as I can, it seems to be an okay fit. I'm really confused on sizing should be and how it should feel.

 

Can anyone give me some tips on determining whether this is the right size for me or not? Or should I go into a retail store and ask them to help me figure it out? (Although I'm not quite sure what the response would be bringing a pair of factory seconds into a regular retail store)

 

Thanks a lot!

I have returned Shoebank and other outlet shoes at that location twice.

I have the Neumoras and had to size down. I'm a 9.5 E in just about every AE I own (10+ pairs) an I went with a 9 E in the 3 last. Hope this helps.

Thanks d, is the Rack close to the mall?

This is why I found it really odd that they said they couldn't help me.  I wonder if it has to do with me being young, under dressed, and holding a pair of seconds inside a retail first store (hey, I have to start somewhere).  If true, and this is what it sounds like given you guys' account with returning seconds, then that location is really irking me the wrong way... =/

 

Or, it could be that I went in looking for a size "exchange".  However, I did clearly say I was hoping to return the larger pair to your store and re-ordering a smaller size from the shoe bank....of which, they "could not help me here".  Of course I didn't expect them to have seconds on hand to exchange with me on the spot, so I wasn't implying anything like that.

 

Not good, Sutter Street location, not good.
