Just for reference, my current work shoes are a pair of Black Ecco and pair of Brown Ecco.  I also have a pair of Brown J&M's that I'm wearing today with jeans.  I tend to wear my brown shoes the most that's why I went with the brown FA.

I still think the dark brown Fifth Ave is a bit formal for what you plan on wearing it with. There are plenty of other shoes in brown that are not quite so formal.

If your local Nordstroms won't take them back, call AE customer service and explain the issue. This wouldn't be the first time that have had this issue

Should I keep my Black Players that I bought from last year's Anniversary Sale (that I haven't worn once) , or exchange them for a pair of Daltons that will replace the PS Corso's that I lost in Vegas one weekend?

I already own a pair of black/brown Park Avenue's, haha. Maybe I should just keep the Players and cop the Dalton's anyway.

C.I., any self-respecting Louisiana gator hunter wouldn't be caught out on the bateau without his 'Cajun Reeboks'.

Nordstrom had zero sympathy for AE shoes I purchased that developed very deep creases after less than five wearings.

 

AE insisted I give them the shoe so they can replace it. The manager inspected the shoes and said the leather was substandard. He pointed out where AE uses the best leather on the shoes, where it is supposed to crease and where it isn't supposed to crease.

AE will price match Nordstrom.

 

I think Strand in walunt will become your favorite shoe.

The Clifton was on sale for $199 back in June at Nordstrom.  I was able to get a pair in Walnut. 

 

If you have Nordstrom Rack locally, check it.  I just saw a few pairs at the rack last week

Wish I knew! I really want to get a pair in Burnished Burgundy before September. I don't have a Rack near by. Does anybody know of any other upcoming sales?

Hi, i'm also new to AE and also about to bite the bullet on the AE strands on the nordstrom website.

 

I seem to size up as 8E, according to the AE size guide. However, after reading several threads i understand that the Strand is a 5 last, which is longer and narrower.

 

As I live in Australia, I can't go into a store and try them on for myself (best solution) so it is a bit of a gamble for me.

 

I own a few Loake 1880 shoes that are size 8.5UK or 9UK with a G fitting and they seem to fit me well if that gives some idea to anyone. And yes, I do have a bit of a wide foot.
 

 

Would just like some advice regarding this.

 

Thanks in advance

Just wondering, where do these prototype AE's being sold on ebay come from?
