When I order from AE, I try to get the rep to get someone to personally inspect the shoes before it goes thru AE shipping.  Again, it's an extra step - but most reps will say yes to adding a second pair of eyes on what I expect before shipping.

 

By the way - what is your closest Nordstroms full department store?  Perhaps the manager of mine knows your local manager and can provide a little more service for members from this forum (50+ members here have contacted the manager - all satisfied)

Yes.

Or can I just buy one pair for 125? I've asked the outlet that question but no one will answer it.

Call in your order for $125.00 and follow up by email.  You have nothing to lose in assuming and asking directly.

 

It reminds me of my grocery store where cottage cheese is 10 for $10.  When I take one to the checkout, it still rings up as a dollar.

Has anyone been able to get a hold of the 8.5D/E closeout list? I emailed them and no response.

I was luckily able to get a pair of Long Branch at $125 though, which is a steal.

Yes, the Long Branch at $125 is probably one of the best deals for years to come.

 

As for the price match, I suggest speaking only to a manager on the phone.  They can over-ride store policy because they are the people who want to see sales volume at whatever skinny profits. 

 

The manager I work with has helped over 50 forum members here with offers of additional styles and colors at remarkable 35% off deals.

 

If you need help, let me know.

Monica will not send a list today of items not on the sale list, regardless of them being current styles in SECONDS or closeouts in firsts or seconds.

The Long Branch was listed at AE's site several weeks ago as a CLOSEOUT and no more to be made.  The live chat said so much.  But the following week, the Long Branch was put back on the regular inventory as still being made - and in some areas has been marked as "Seasonal".

Who really knows?  I don't.  But if someone tells me that a style and size is in stock for a price I like - I order it.

Thanks for the comment,

David

David, what I think you are misunderstanding is that you requested a list of those items that would be on sale and the OP requested a list of all inventory (seconds and closeouts). I am sure that monica or krystal at jville will provide me with an entire inventory list if I request that and not just what is a sale/closeout item.

Here is why.  The following was emailed to me this week for all the items on sale (2 for $250) in my size:

SIZE 11:












SIZE 11.5













***************************

Although some of the above are already at $99, the others are on sale for $125 ea (or 2 for $250)

I suggest for folks to order what they want from whatever recent list - and get a confirmation on the $125.  There is nothing to lose when asking.

Good luck,


David

It's curious to me that I was the one who broke the news of the 2 for $250 yet somehow David has taken posting as if he is the one to bring the news...maybe I'mjust being sensitive

I live in Raleigh, NC.  The Streets at Southpoint is my closest store.  Don't worry about it for me though.  I don't intend to make any purchases from them anytime soon.

Kristle's website was down yesterday, she also had a list of 80+ emails to sift thru. May have better success placing a phone call to move up your priority.

Thanks for the warning. I'm actually intrigued by a slightly higher toe. I don't usually like super knobby, which is why I liked this boot, but also thought the toe looked a tad too flat.

 

Bringing it back to AE (sorta): How did this boot fit compared to your AE's? I wear an 8.5D on the 5-65 last, but 9D on the 1-511 last.

I wear a 10D in both 5 and 1 last but for the Barrie last like most I size down a half size to a 9.5D. Some people curse the AE 5 last, I feel it is the best last I have ever worn. The Alden Barrie last also has a few that curse it and I would be one. The heel is way too wide for me and I get heel slip, they fit much like Red Wing Beckman's on me which isn't so great. So for the Alden #8 cap toe boot I waited till I found a boot on the Grant last which is just about perfect for my foot.

I'm right there with you for the same MTO, but I have waited as long or longer for Shell from AE before back when they first shifted over from carrying shell shoes in stock to only MTO. I'm not worried about it and haven't checked on the status since ordering. If you get yours before me and I don't hear anything then I will start checking!

Guys , does this little bowing looks normal to you? These are firsts from Nordstrom it looks like that when I'm standing only .

I can't go with a Narrower size since it'll kill my pinky toe.

Thanks.[IMG]

Nice additions to your collection polojock they turned out great!! There are worse things to be addicted to and I'm right there with you. Nah... your way ahead of me with some wonderful and unique exotics. Well done.
