Hey Paul,

I was wondering if store sales people work on commission? Basically, I work near a NYC store so I want to get sized and pick something up but I live in NJ. If I order online I would save about 10% in tax getting it shipped home.

 

 
 

CEO - Allen Edmonds

Yes they do. And they can order the shoes for you and have them sent to your home as well. I think (I should know) that you can get the same treatment on the sales tax that way. Ask them, please.

I bought a pair today at LaSalle St. in Chicago, and am having them shipped to my home in Indiana. No tax. The only downside is that I couldn't carry them out.

Cigar and ravello are Alden exclusive colors, so no one gets that but Alden. Not to mention that the dark brown that AE stocks isn't terribly different than cigar. I just hope that AE was the large scale purchaser of bourbon shell... someone asked Paul about that on his AMA and his answer was coy and ambiguous.

You'll have to pay Use Tax on it when you do your taxes next year, though.

@RichieP So far I like the Shelton, a little leather wrinkle but so far so good. I'll tell you though, I'm kind of the opposite. Wore my red neumok today - very comfortable, but when I got home from work I was fatigued enough I couldn't wait to switch over to a mctavish. I'd take the double sole or mini-lug over anything else, to me it's just far more comfortable & supportive. Those pics of the Shannon make them look a lot nicer than from the AE site but id absolutely die wearing something with a sole like that.

Interesting, hadn't thought about that. Thanks.

Have gotten to know one of the reps in Arlington VA but live in DC. Happy to keep buying from him. Thanks for posting, appreciate it.

Anybody else thinking the same?

My wallet hopes not!
(and you are aware of the non-posted sale that is currently going on SB, right?)

I am aware of the Tanger Outlets sale which applies to the Allen Edmonds stores. (It's not exclusive to AE, which is why I think people are calling it non-posted.) That sale ends tomorrow, which is one reason I suspect we may see a Shoebank sale next week.

I live up by Ft Meade and have been getting to know Chris at the DuPont store. You know there's two stores in DC right? wink.gif

I just wish ordering from the store didn't take so long to ship. Been over a week and still no email. frown.gif

I even really like the Brooks Brothers tartan ones.  That said, I got my 3 pairs each for pretty good deals, and if AE prices keep climbing I might have to abandon any new AE purchases all together in the future (the horror, I know).

You're the ultimate Shaker fan! I'm hoping for another chance at the very rare black one from original runs. I agree with you about AE price increases. 100$ more than AE retail gets me a Vass MTO. But still, another Shaker would definitely be worth full retail. To me, at least. I love the leather from the original makeups, whatever it actually is...

I think it's Horween that doesn't want to make these colors in large batches. Alden has been dry of ravello for a long time now. Carmina has been dying natural hides to get cognac and saddle. Paul talks about getting burned on returns from the walnut and cappuccino web gems, but I think that all of those returns, even 2nds have been gobbled up by now.

CXL is well known to have enormous stretch potential. I would be surprised if they didn't break in quite a bit if you stuck with it! Looking good nonetheless.

Yes! They sure do. I order everything through Kristle at Jeffersonville or the folks at Madison ave. even if it's just a mail order.

I'm fairly sure it was Alden. With runs of ravello and whiskey super backed up, I imagine this "bourbon" color could be labeled as one or the other of those depending on the batch, and no one would bat an eye.

Vass, Buday, and (possibly) Enzo Bonafe have cigar hides in stock right now.

I thought there were a handful of models on an unposted sale. (A reddit link was posted here about 5-7 days ago.) Separate from that, and only applicable on regular priced items, was the outlet coupon.

Really, they need to ask Paul if AE has any plans of bringing back the Bleecker Street...even if it's only in one color: Dark Chili...or God forbid (for my wallet's sake) Oxblood with a rubber sole. Even if they had to re-contract the student who originally designed the shoe, I think it would be worth it for them financially.

Anyone else notice that the shoebank now has pictures for everything?  I wonder if anyone actually ordered anything without a picture...anyway, those black golf shoes for $87 have been screaming my name (I love black shoes for golfing, everything else just gets too dirty too quickly.)

 

Does anyone else here golf?  Curious if anyone has one of their higher end golf shoes and how it performs.

I don't think it did particularly well with sales, and there were a lot of returns due to QC problems with the pattern. I personally returned 3 pairs before giving up on it.

No there is a sale in the AE outlets physical locations not reflected in the ShoeBank web prices.  I posted a link to the original post here:  post #3386.  Actual original post is here:   post #2945.

 

This sale is how someone got the First Ave Boots a few posts back for $249.
