Thanks,
It's not an official policy, so it probably depends on the sales associate. I would try it and see what happens. My guess is they will do it for you.

Glad this worked out for you. The shoes look great (Jordans too).

So here they are... wore my Jordans to pick up my Brooks Brothers Fifth Avenues.... And they are exactly what I need them to be!

Thanks in advance.

You can qualify immediately for the early sale going on right now by visiting www.nordstroms.com and signing up for a FREE NORDSTROMS REWARDS DEBIT CARD.  This is not a credit card so there is no credit report required.  The debit card is attached to your checking account so when you make a purchase, it goes through the Nordstroms card and takes the amount from your checking account.  The online system assigns you our Nordstroms Debit card immediately and you have access to the early sale!

 

All my best,

 

David

Why not just buy the Neumoks from Nordstroms in red?  The Nordstroms manager I spoke to said he could order shoes directly from AE to ship to you for any sale item in any size any color.

...same here! I don't know wtf happened!

The difference in size between the 9.5E and the 10D is actually very small.  Depending on the last and the shape of your foot, you may find the fit is so similar you can't notice the difference.

first time ever at an allen edmonds standalone yesterday; not surprised how i walked out of there without blowing my entire paycheck.  with the salesman there and selection, not sure if i ever want to bother with online purchasing again.  the salesman brought out 3 or 4 pairs in different widths and configurations, never flinched, with a smile the whole time.

Nordstrom has done this for me.  Order in store.  Drop shipped from AE.

The leather in the insole had aged enough that it would crack were they to remove the insole. They offer 20% off a new pair.

So you got the sale price and the color of choice?

Wish this could be done from Canada!

Curious as to why they don't replace the insole. Other companies such as Alden replaces insoles when needed.

I'd do that in a heart beat but the Neumoks in red aren't on sale at Nordstrom. They aren't showing up for me at the same anniversary price as the blue and the brown.

David,

Do you know any round about way to get any colour I want shipped to Canada? Any managers to speak with? I was looking at two pairs and a few belts, but the colours I want aren't in the official sale.

I'm not aware that Alden changes the insole. They all replace the cork midsole. The insole is not designed to be replaced, to the best of my knowledge.

Jeezus. Wore my BB Fifth Avenue today and the Poron insole is amazing. I regularly stand a lot during the day and the regular AE Strand & McAllister make my feet pretty sore by the end of a 8.5 hour workshift. But the BB version felt so good... I kind of regret getting the AE versions of the Strand & McAllister...
