Does anyone know the best email to use when requesting an availability list?

 

Last Friday I emailed shoebank@allenedmonds.com and was told they should have an updated list for the 2 for 250 "next week".

 

I emailed them today, seeing as it is 2 days before the sale so I assumed they would have a list, but no reply.

 

Any thoughts?

I guess the double butyl sole with a flat welt would be what's on the Dalton boot....

 

I haven't decided on this one yet but I was thinking of the split-reverse, since I don't like flat welt on the longwings.

I emailed jville@allenedmonds.com and received a list in both 11D and 11.5D this afternoon. Very quick turnaround. Feel free to PM me your email address if you're either of these sizes and I will send you the list.

By the way, the Shoe Bank was nice enough to take my order in advance of the sale and process it tomorrow night or Thursday morning so I would be sure to get what I was looking for. Worth a shot for you fellas to do the same if you wanted anything you know will be included in this sale that starts the 19th. Good luck!

Nice. They were surprisingly strict this time. Neither J'ville nor Shoebank sent me the list of seconds in advance, leave alone let me place an order (I talked to Shirley at the Shoebank and Kristel at the J'ville outlet). However, they were happy to do so before the Labor Day sale. Not sure what has changed.

As JS said, the lines of the brogueing and their spacing from the welt which are what he outlined in the red boxes.  The only way for that to really happen is that when the uppers were lasted, they weren't properly aligned on the last.  It's not a huge deal, unless if becomes distracting to the eye.  It doesn't affect longevity of the shoe.  The ones that the OP showed are acceptable for seconds, but definitely not for firsts, in my opinion.    

Thanks guys, didn't pick that much at all!

Question regarding the two for $250 sale. Would I be able to order one pair at $125 ? Or does it have to be the two for $250 ?

post #29319 of 48184
It's TWO for $250

When I got home from work today my new olive Ridgeways that I ordered this past weekend were waiting for me.  That was fast.  My only gripes:  Just the one pair of blue laces included--no second pair in tan.  They are slightly lopsided, not quite as bad as tietherope's suede Neumoks but still not symmetrical.  I'll keep them.  I just checked the clearance page at the AE website and it looks like they are all out of the special Ridgeways in both red and olive in every size--they're gone and they went fast.
