I don't follow this thread as closely as I would like.  Who can I call or e-mail?  Thanks!

Here's the original quote from a number of months ago.

Thanks very much for your great interest and support of Allen Edmonds. I'm seriously impressed and, on behalf of the company, honored by the 615 pages in this thread. I want you to know that we strive to live up to your high standards every single day, not just in product quality and styling but also in customer service. Customized shoes require special processing and, as you'd expect, aren't as efficiently done as our long production runs of in-line shoes. However, in return for your support, if it's a leather we carry in another style that you'd like on your chosen shoe but is not currently offered -- or if it's a width on a legacy last (such as the 5, the 7, the 8 or the 1) that isn't currently offered -- just send me an email at pgrangaard@allenedmonds.com. If we can do it for you, we will. The pricing will be "ad hoc" based on degree of difficulty, but I'm eager to give you a special deal. If we can't do it, I'll explain why. In other words, we'll do whatever we can to return your loyalty and trust.

Thanks very much again to you all and best wishes,
Paul

Why doesn't AE make it easier to find out what is available in the outlet sales? It is a single data base all the stores are using. Why does every single buyer have to either call or email to get the list?

I emailed two days ago about the 2/250 sale and still have heard nothing. I thought they were in business to sell things.

Thoughts on the new Mojave chukka? Might be time to upgrade my Clark's desert boots

You could also try getting a pair of 2nds from the Shoebank.

I only see burnished burgundy on nordstrom's website. is that the same as the brown now?

I had a pair of shoes once---Hudson oxfords from Frye, not AE--with crepe soles and I didn't like them.  They soaked up oil and grime like you wouldn't believe, like sponges.  Maybe all crepe isn't the same and AE crepe is different from the pair I had.  But I do think the Mojaves are nice looking, the suede ones, anyway.  I'd probably be willing to give AE the benefit of the doubt and give a pair a try at some point.  

 

I just went to Zappos and checked out Clarks desetrt boots and saw that they have crepe soles.  So I guess I'm not telling you anything you don't already know about the idiosyncrasies of crepe.

You are spot on.  It might be that if the discounts go mainstream, they fear that more people would buy shoes at the lower prices and sales at full retail would be threatened.  I have a feeling that not a ton of folks are using the outlets because the information is not widely publicized.  I sent them a message last night and got a reply this morning.  They didn't have what I wanted, but I still appreciated the fast response.  A company like AE needs those retail sales to keep in the black.

What are you gentlemen planning on getting for the Rediscover America sale?

 

Torn between getting just One pair of Shell Strand

 

or Two pairs of calf (1 walnut/bone Broadstreet + 1 brown Strand)

Doing some winterization today. A thorough dosing of Obenauf's Heavy Duty Leather Protectant will hopefully have my Long Branches and Bayfields sufficiently water-repellant for the coming season. The Bayfields didn't really change at all, but the LBs have darkened quite a bit:



The leather seems pretty porous, so I think it really soaked the Obenauf's in. I'm hoping they'll lighten back up a bit once they're completely dried, but don't hate the current colour.

I didn't realize that this sale had Shells in it. Is it the same $299 deal?

No not exactly. 15%-30% off everything.

was debating if I should return the 7D Kenwoods and exchange for 7E instead, but then the rubber heel just fell off on both shoe. Made that decision easy.

I think the mojaves have rubber soles. And I own clarks already so I know about their crepe soles. And I agree, its my least favorite part of Clark's desert boots. It gets black and nasty looking quickly and wears down.

I'm interested in the brown suede strands. If they're only 15% off I'll likely wait for seconds though.
