My thoughts exactly. I am really disappointed.

I think you should take some consolation in the fact that it will likely only take one phone call to AE's customer service for them to make it right.

I thought you all would get a kick out of this. Try and count the number of errors in this ebay listing. Anybody remember Highlights magazine, where they had the illustrations and you had to count the errors? I kept thinking of that when I saw this listing.

Ok, I will play. At least 3 errors. First, it is either a size 9 or 10 and it can't be both. Second, it is definitely not shell. Third, it was not made in Italy. Not sure if it is lightly used as claimed without more photos, but it is unlikely.

Oh yeah, fourth is him thinking someone will pay $300. Mike drop.

Something new on the Nordstrom site.  The Leawood.

Interesting shoe. Quite expensive for something that "rugged." Also D width only... so that's a deal-breaker for a lot of AE fans.

Saw this; wonder if it's going to remain an exclusive. I'd like to see more crepe-sole options, and I prefer the look of this to the Newberg.

I'm wondering if the Fifth Avenue on Dainite sole would be slightly bigger than one on leather sole for the same size? I've heard some saying that shoes built with rubber sole have a bit more room than one leather sole for the same size and last.

For those on the sidelines of the anniversary sale, Bloomingdales is having a "buy more save more" sale (20% off 250-499, 25% off 500-999, 30% off over 1000) combined with a private $25 off per 100 that includes certain Allen Edmonds styles that are already price matched with the anniversary sale, so rather than paying 295 you pay 186 for the shoes below:

Mcallister (black or walnut)
Carlyle (black or walnut)

145 for the strandmok if you buy it with something else to get over 250.

^^also 241 for strand, park Ave, MacNeil 2.0, Cornwallis
post #3671 of 17714
Does anyone have the Sturgis 2.0 and if so what are your thoughts? It's on clearance for a hefty discount making it considerably less than the Wolverine 1000-mile which i was originally considering....

Can't believe it took me this long to get tassels. Grayson in the wild and they are comfortable out of the box. Will only get better during break in.

I'm wondering if you also tried the Acheson before going with the Grayson.  They look VERY similar to me.

What would be better is if AE matched the "buy more save more" offer. Then you could get all of their colors. I'd like to get some chili strands with a McAllister possibly a strandmok as well. Probably wishful thinking though haha.

I'm seriously considering getting the Grayson in shell.
