EG sale particulars..

post #1 of 47
Thread Starter 
I emailed EG earlier this week to check on what stock shoes they had in my size,on the list there were 2 or 3 I could not decide on.Then I thought if I wait until the sale(approx 4 weeks)I could get all 3.
So my question is,do the stock shoes that are unsold come sale day,go into the sale or is there some other criteria?

The sale is is an animal unto itself. Once constructed, nothing, AFAIK, is ever added to it. That being said, there's a very good chance that at least one of the shoes you're considering will appear on the list.

Generally, upon your request, the sale list is distributed via email by the EG folks about one week prior to the sale. They will take reservations on shoes as long as you provide a credit card number.

Suffice to say if there's something that you want, move quickly, as there was an absolute feeding frenzy last year.

Is it still going to be 250 GBP? Shipping?

Don't mention shipping it usually gets you in trouble.

Not certain on that Zach. Even for me, it's a little early to be harassing the guys at the store on lsits and pricing.

I'll give them another week.

I still struggle to get my head around a sale at somewhere like EG.Before I discovered SF and AAAC I bought more "fashion forward" clothing and footwear and it seemed natural for the stores to have a sale to make way for the new "fashions".Whereas somewhere like EG you can buy a shoe now for £460,the same shoe next month for £295,and then the same shoe the month after for £460 again.(Thats assuming it does go in the sale,but if its one of the EG staples you have got a good chance).
Thats why the only pairs I have bought full price are the MTO's.

Andrew, do you have an idea of when the sale will begin ? I'm about to order a pair of EG's and I'd hate to see them on sale two weeks afterwards...

I spoke to them today and all they would tell me was the end of June,but then I don't have the kudos that Andrew has.

If you can hold off, I would. The sale is still about 6 weeks off, but depending on your size, there may well be a treasure chest of riches on the list. Last go round I was able to get 5 pairs.

Chelsea acorn 82 last
Yardley edwardian 606 last
Ladbroke mink suede 606 last
Warwick boot dark oak 888 last
Malvern brandy wilow 202 last

Quite an assortment, so hold tight and wait for the sale!

Hrm, it hadn't struck me the sale was coming up. This might help me forget all about those Mackays...

Very nice Andrew

Last time I passed on a pair of dark oak Oundle on the 888 last. Let's hope I can repair that mistake this time around...

Will EG ship the shoes to Canada?
I know some Jap shoes site has EG shoe pictures but, is there a site that lists pictures of most of EG shoes?
