Your message made me laugh. We realize that some people do enjoy the "hunt" for shoes. You can still reach out to any of our retail outlets and work with them directly. You can also call or email customer service, and they will be glad to help you. For those that want more control, there is shoebank.com. For Allen Edmonds its all about giving the customer options, and a better experience. Thanks for the laugh and being a great customer.
It's fun to think back to the "old" days. I went digging through old emails and found an old inventory spreadsheet from the Labor Day sale in 2013. There are 439 lines of shoes listed for my size. Looking through the list, I see at least 6 pairs I regret not buying. I especially regret that I never bought a Ralph Lauren branded shoe--those were beautiful shoes. During that sale they were being sold a a very, very fair price. For all newcomers that only know the shoebank website, here is is just a little sample of what the spreadsheets looked like. One of the fun things was that it listed how many of an item were in stock. No, that's information I never needed to know but I found it interesting. Another cool thing was you had a list of all these names and then you had to figure out what kind of shoe they were (such as the RL branded shoes). Man, how I wished I would have gotten a pair of the Saunders chukka boots! Anyone here have one? Do you still wear them?
