    This is an upcoming annual sale. I believe it usually starts in April. If I were you, I would return the shoes when you get them, and buy them again during the sale. Worst possible outcome is that the Sea Island is not part of the sale after all, and you end up paying full price a second time. Best case scenario, you save about $100.

    I'm not sure about that. That is only $14 more than a Kirkwood, and you get the high-quality suede. Of course, this theory assumes that the Kirkwood is worth it at $175.

    Got over to an AE store earlier this week and was pleasantly surprised to see the Sea Island in stock.

    The suede is truly amazing, and I'm certainly going to buy them at $200.

    But my question to y'all is this: should I stick with my normal size (10.5D) and wear them sockless, or should I go up to 11D to wear with no-show socks?

    I wear a 10D in the 5 last and i went down to 9EEE. The shoes haven't come in yet, so i don't know if the fit is going to be perfect or not, but that's the size the guy that helps me told me i would wear.

    If you purchased them with your credit card, see if one of the benefits of that card is price protection/matching. Most of my credit cards have a price matching benefit where if I find a cheaper price within 90 days, make a copy of my receipt, lower-priced ad, and fill out the CC company claim form they'll refund me the difference. I've used this many times.

    My slow closet purge continues!

    I bought these dark brown Leeds new about a year and a half ago. They were one of my first 'nice' shoes and at the time I still thought I was an 11D (I've since learned I'm a 10.5D for everything except 1943 and 65 last).

    Only worn two or three times, and they are simply too big for me.

    Lol glad I'm not the only one. I also bought my first pairs thinking i was an 11d and slowly shrunk down to a 10. Luckily my two pairs in 11 fit well enough that I can wear them still. I did have to unload a 10.5

    Pair #11. Oxblood Daltons from a fellow forum member. These are going to quickly become favorites. I might be posting photos of shorts with dress boots soon.

    @danwatts2005 I paid $77 for my Kirkwood firsts. No way at 175. For the Sea Island, the material might be spectacular but you have to take into consideration - nonrecraftable, DR.
