That makes sense.  Errr, it makes sense as an explanation for why the hole is there.  It doesn't make sense as something for stores to actually do.

Oh, good grief.

I ordered mine direct from AE, so I can't imagine they would've had an anti-theft tag attached.

I believe the Dark Chili Cornwallis was/is a Nordstrom exclusive.

 

There is a pair of dark chili Cornwallises in the ShoeBank in size 8.5D. I've had my eye on them, but haven't pulled the trigger.

Feels like Fall today so Dundees and cords. But back to mid 90's Monday so back to the other part of the closet.

Well even if the trunk show is canceled (hopefully not based on that email) I think I'll pass on shell 2nds. They had better prices at $399.99 earlier this year when I bought brown shell strands and black shell PAs which I returned. They have a shell dundee there in my size but I already don't wear my dundees much as it is.

When I tried them on in-store a couple of weeks ago, all they had in my normal size was a suede, which is more forgiving. These are a little tight in the toe.

I ordered/returned several pairs of Cavanaughs from Shoebank, ordered/kept a pair of firsts, and have handled pairs in 3 different stores- every one of them had that same hole in both shoes. If anything, I think it's a result of the manufacturing process- maybe a piece of equipment used or something. I would be more concerned with the burnishing on that specific pair.

Perhaps it is something from the manufacturing process, especially if it comes direct from the factory. If it was in the bank, it may have been returned stock? But I have seen these holes from security tags, so I offered it as an explanation. ... Or it could have been created by aliens...or Trump...or the Russians did it. In any case it's clearly unAmerican and should stop. What did those poor shoes do to them?

I saw 2 at Paramus, 7.5E and I don't remember the second (I want to say 11.5D).  The 7.5E's aren't listed on ShoeBank thats why I said anyone interested in a pair should talk to an outlet SA/SM and see if they have something.

Wearing my walnut Malone's today since it is on the 511 last and my Shelton 1.0's will be delivered today and they are on the 511 too. I think the 511 is probably one of the best last for me so I think I will be happy with the Shelton as long as the condition of the 2nd is good.

 

Love the fit of this shoe just can't wait to get it resoled and converted to leather. My issue with rubber is 1 I don't like the bounce 2 I walk on outside edge of my feet and I wear out rubber soles and especially heels very fast. So with rubber as the heel and sole wear my feet get more tilted to the outside with the hard leather sole and hard heel I get much more mileage and it keeps my feet more aligned. I wish changing my feet was an option but for now just have to go with shoes that work.

What is the difference between the Dundee and Dundee 2.0?

Most likely the hole is from a tack that is used to nail the upper to the last during the manufacturing process.
Its very common.....

Help me buy a pair!

So I already got in on RDA with amour of midnight navy Cornwallis which should arrive today.

I am having trouble deciding what color to get in Strandmoks. I'm looking now for a versatile weekend shoe. I am trying to decide between brown and olive. Brown is, of course much easier to match but I have no green shoes yet. Most of my weekend shoes are loafers in Browns, blacks and blue. The Strandmoks will be paired with jeans and casual pants. I would like to take these on vacation with me so versatility is a concern.

Your thoughts/experience are welcome, including what color jeans and pants work.
