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?
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?
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!
FYI - San Francisco (Sutter Street) does not handle returns/exchanges of Shoebank seconds. It sounds weird to me that it would depend on the location...I'd figure if one AE retailer does it, they all should...but whatever.
They did allow me to try on a different shoe size even though they knew before hand I wasn't making a purchase there.
I have returned Shoebank and other outlet shoes at that location twice.
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.
