Returning something at the mall? Throw on some Patriots and you're good to go

It still kills me that the Patriot doesn't work for me...

I got lucky with my feet. Or maybe I'm too naive to think things fit when they really don't? My only mistake so far was going down a full size for my Wolverine Chelsea's. They fit snug and it's not unbearable, but hindsight says should have just went a half size instead

Are there any belts that the brown is close to the McAllisters other than the Manistee?

$9.98 for Brown

 

These 3 (in my size) were all that I saw.

 

If only they had a Chili to complete the cycle!  ;->

 

 


Very nice! Reminds me of my $3.75 for a $225.00 Canali shirt or the $20.00 for the $398.00 Armani shirt. Big fan of the Rack!

Wow, that Manistee deal might even be better than the $85 Oxblood Park Aves I just bought.  A week of great deals that make little sense.  NR could have sold them for $25 and they still would have been a steal.  Why $5??!

while waiting and hoping the midnight navy strands come back, i decided i'll buy a pair of navy strandmok. just wanted to know the fit compared to the other 65 last shoes. I'm a 7.5 3E, is it alright to buy the same size?

@naspratt I've heard Bruno magli makes them. But I definitely like your version better 😂

@Mat Waites Congrats on that - once I found a couple decent Nordstrom retail store branded ties for a penny each, along with some fancy denim jeans for like 11 but I think those belts blow that away - amazing.

Damn, nice find. If I wasn't in for a GMTO for a C&J Lindrick boot in dark brown shell, I might jump on these.

Anyone seen the red northland camp mocs in person? Anyone own them? Thoughts on their versatility? I would only be wearing them with shorts but want to avoid looking clownish.

As I mentioned the other day, I went shopping with my father in law for shoes for my sister in law's wedding. Long story short, he fell for the Strand (who wouldn't) and ordered two pairs of seconds as he's not sure of the size. See, he wears orthotics (spelling?) And while he was perfectly comfortable in an 8.5D without it, with it he needs an 8.5E or 9D. Even then, the fit is not as comfortable. Turns out there was a stock error on the 8.5D Merlot Strand so he's only got the 9D oxblood Strand. Before I try to get him an 8.5D, anyone have experience with orthotics? It's my feeling that wearing a shoe like the Strand may negate the need for extra support. But I'm not a doctor.

Thoughts?

In the past I've worn orthotics in some of my shoes.  I tend not to need them anymore so I only use them in shoes/boots that I already bought sized with them in mind.

 

The difference is that I usually needed to size up 0.5 in length and go up to the next width.
