    Does anyone here own a pair of PORTLAND boots, or any other shoe made on the 333 Last? I'd like to buy a pair since the Shoe Bank is having its sale, but I don't know how to size them. I am an 8C in the 65 Last (i.e. Strands, McAllisters) and want to know if a 7.5D in the 333 Last would work, since they have it available on the Shoe Bank website...

    Thoughts?

    PSA: Shoebank.com is now reflecting the 20% off tent sale prices. Snagged a Burgundy Shell Dalton that just popped up in my size this morning for $439. Not as great as the Shell sales at $325, but figured it was still a good deal due to the rarity of any shell options for my B width foot.

    Now just to decide whether to return the bourbon Dalton I recently bought, or keep both.

    Also, Terri at the Jeffersonville store also no longer works there; seems to have left around the same time Jill did. Wonder what happened, as they both have provided me with excellent service.

    Debating a cordovan dalton as well, but with 4 pairs likely being invoiced in the same month. Its not looking so good.

    It's been awhile since I've had to break in a new pair of shoes, but is it normal to hear a lot of noise with each step? It's not a squeak, just the sound of the leather creasing if that makes sense. It's kind of uncomfortable walking around the office with it making so much noise.

    Maybe just need to flex the soles a bit?

    Keep both! I have walnut shell and burgundy shell daltons and they will get a ton of wear the next 4 months. I guess it depends on what other boots you have.

    One of my fave AE shoes, which I own(!). This last fits me great. Wish AE had more shoes on this last. Agree with the other poster that shine is plenty good.

    You're right, there is room for both NWTeal, as I don't have any other boots yet. Just a lot of money on AEs this year, and I also can't seem to get comfortable wearing them with dress pants yet. Definitely dressy enough footwear, but my flat front 32" waist pants have leg openings that aren't large enough to go over the boot very well and they look a little silly.

    These are dark brown? I have them as well, but they are SO dark. Any tips on how to lighten them up? Also, what's your secret to that shine?

    For some reason I laughed at the thought of you tip toeing around the office to try and minimize the noise. But yeah I have had this too, my Patroits actually make a lot of noise when I walk and have experienced this with others too. It will pass as the shoe breaks in. I was even getting some sloshing from the insoles on one pair until the cork bed settled.

    Dave--Jill left the Jeffersonville store? I just spoke to her 2 weeks ago when I placed a order for a couple of pairs of shoes...too bad since she was friendly and great to work with!

    @halfnhalfnhalf yeah my collection is pretty high right now but will be thinning the herd in a major way...as I have mentioned before I wear dress shorts(is that a real style?) 5+ months of the year here in lovely NJ and just can not justify the quantity especially with all the new stuff arriving. I keep telling myself 10 boots and 10 shoes and that's all I need....and this paddle ball and this lamp. But yeah probably have 50+ between all makes right now.

    Excellent quote!

    I have been thinning the herd too, but then I sometimes add to it again. I have at least gotten to the point where I am only acquiring shoes that I really find to be special for some reason, as opposed to just on sale. But having said that, I've identified three different shoes (maybe four) between the Shoe Bank sale and retail that I am considering at the moment!

    Strangely, the black plain- or cap-toe blucher for business travel has eluded me. Struck out with the Lexington. Don't know why this particular shoe is so hard for me; been thinking of the Fifth Avenue boot as a substitute.

    Awesome shoes posted today!

    I don't know if anyone needs a messenger bag, but AE is blowing out these Neumok messengers. I stopped into my local store to ask about Oxblood options and picked one up for $39.

    Now it's certainly no Opti-Grab, but it's very well constructed and a steal at $39.

    Black Provos for me today:

    I hope the week is finding everybody well.
