    Walnut Wednesday today.

    @polishrifle , these are the LGAs. I went through some foot issues myself and tried to go the Road Warriors route. These LGAs are nice, but they are most definitely a down grade (including the quality of leather). I also bought the captoe and slip-on off the 'bay. I'm glad I didn't pay much for those, as they look super cheap and have only been worn a couple of times.

    I really like the RW insoles; they work great for my flat feet and help me fill excess volume in non-RW shoes. I'd say give the LGAs a try (robably closer to brannock size than 65). That, or look at finding inserts to go in regular AEs.

    I checked all my sizes for the Rutledges, but they are extinct. A really nice shoe, and there's so many reasons to buy it. Love that they also have the old piping.

    Fullertons. I guess I wore these pants last Wednesday too, but I don't care. What really bothers me is that they're too big.

    God I'm so desperate to find a pair of these that will fit me.

    Anyone want a lightly used pair of 11 Ds for a good price?

    I found a new pair on Ebay that would fit me, but they are $350. These are on the 65 last, right?

    They are on the 333 last. A bit wider and longer than the 65 but the length seems to be something thats just typical. I'm wearing a 9D in these which is what I wear for the 511 last. It is a little bit more snug but with the type of leather after about 3 hours of wear they feel great. For reference I typically wear 8.5EE or 9E on the 65 last.

    Oh shit -- thank you guys. I do not have any experience with the 333. I don't know why I assumed these were on the 65 or 201. [​IMG]

    Makes me think twice about considering the ebay pair.

    If I could have picked I'd probably still get my 65 size had they been available. Meaning 9E vs 9D that I got.

    The lowest price that first quality current model shoes seem to go for is $150 off, so that would be $245 based on today's retail prices. As far as I've seen this only happens a couple of times per year at the Anniversary Sale and (coming soon) during the Rediscover America sale. However, the two models you have mentioned seem to receive more modest price reductions, presumably, due to their popularity. Keep your an eye out in the upcoming weeks. You might get lucky. The feeding frenzy... err, sale... begins in early October.

    How common or normal is cracking on the cap?

    One of my strands has it, the other doesn't. These fit great, but the "distressed" look of the toe cap on the left shoe seems odd to me.

    Will some Bick4 when I get home take care of this?

    Um, those are creases and are completely normal. Put some wax on those bad boys.

    The factory seconds usually get marked down to $229 during sales. Some other mainline models, such as the Fifth Avenue, get marked down to $199.

    A VERY light application of Bick 4 ( or Lexol) may lessen those very minor creases, but creasing is going to happen no matter what. I would not use wax unless you want to put a hard shine (bulling) on those. The AE polish is (the squeeze tube) works well at putting a shine while not caking on layers of wax.

    $260 during the Nordstrom Anniversary sale in July is probably the lowest price point that you will see for those shoes each year.
