I should add that the Strands (in walnut) were available as seconds for only $200 at my AE store...apparently they're a "featured" sale item.  At that price, I couldn't pass them up.

I'd like to order the Cronmok and since it's unlined, should I order an 8D or keep the E width and use a tongue pad?
Also, how is the Patriot sized?
I'd go to the store but just noticed that Fatwallet has 5% cashback.
Anyone?

That looks like a black paint or edge dressing, not like a part of the shoe or a topy.  Some ebay resellers use this to make the sole of the shoe appear "new" again, on shoes worn once or twice.

Keep in mind, RL usually has a sale in early November for 40% off, plus a 15% kicker.  That's what I'm waiting on before I shell out for their shell Marlow wingtips.

You're correct. On a second look it looks like paint

It also has two small holes drilled into one shoe (or it appears as such). I have seen this before, what does it mean when AE does this?

it isn't AE who drills those holes. nordstrom drills those holes when a pair gets returned to the store.

ah.. i see. Do those shoes appear to have been worn just a few times judging by the pictures though? Do they only drill holes if they've been worn for a considerable amount of time?

Yes, worn only a few times at most.  I think Nordstrom's drills the holes on any shoes that have been worn and returned, therefore not sellable as new.

Also, if anyone is in the Cleveland area, The new Woodmere store is having a "meet the CEO" evening from 5-7pm on October 9.  It's 2 hours away, otherwise I think I'd go.

Can anyone relate how the 5-65 last compares to the 8-108? I wear an 11.5d in the 8 last Delrays.

 

I have the Strand (5 last) and Clifton (8 last). I wear an 8.5 E in both, though the 5 fits my foot a bit better.

The 8 is definitely narrower. I am a borderline D in the 5 last (a little too snug), and I have to wear an E with the 8 last

post #10482 of 47086
Strange but I'm the opposite. 8 last in 11B fits perfect--5 last in 11B is a little snug. Tried both in several sizes/widths--11B is the right size.

Ha! I have both lasted shoes 5 last (Fifth street, Cambridge, and Strand) and 8 last (Quinton) and the 8 last fits my foot better. I take the same size in both lasts too, 9D. I took a picture last night of my 5, 7, and 8 last. Will try to post tonight.

Awesome thanks for the replies! I'll try the standard size and see how that goes.

Just looking for some input from my fellow AE fans. My current shoes are: walnut Strands, black McAllisters, black McTavish, brown Neumoks, brown Rutledge.

 

What would YOU buy as your next shoe? I was about to pull the trigger on some Long Branches for the Canadian winter, but then I started lusting after the Daltons as I can wear them to work and for casual wear. Granted they wont work when the snow comes, which the Long Branch would. I don't really NEED anything new right now, but you know how it goes. 

 

What shoe/boot would you look at if you had my current line-up?
