    I use saphir renovateur on all my AE shoes that are not burnished. Based on what I see it take off of others, I'd be surprised if the renovateur didn't take off as much or more of the burnishing.

    Similar problem. A pair of chili Dainite fifths from AE that I previously convinced her I "needed", then 5 pairs from Bloomingdales that I bought yesterday (black and walnut carlyles, walnut Mcallister, brown strandmok, plus a pair of black carlyles for my brother). Zero chance of hiding. Hopefully at 160/pr she'll eventually forgive me.

    Ugh......cant remember exactly where I saw the details, but im pretty sure it was in this post maybe 10-15 pages back. Someone basically listed about 15-20 shoes that they were offering at like $80 - $100 off shoebank listed prices. I called their thomasville, OH store and placed the order directly. You might want to try calling them and asking for details as to which models are discounted below shoebank prices. They were very helpful when I called. Sorry I dont have more specifics, but maybe someone in here who is more familiar can point you in the right direction.

    Basically the discount is on the models that are currently on sale as firsts on the main AE website. If you see a model where seconds on the Shoebank are more expensive than firsts on the main AE site, you'll be able to get the $80 to $100 discount on seconds if you call or visit in person. For example, Fifth Streets are listed at $295 for firsts and $299 for seconds right now, but you can actually get the seconds for $199 if you call.

    This sale is how someone got the First Ave Boots a few posts back for $249.
    There you go

    Thanks for re-sharing. I missed out on a pair of MacNeil 1.0's a week ago on the Shoebank, someone called in and ordered them right before me, so $199 for the 2.0s is very tempting.

    Does anyone know if Shoebank sales typically follow the timeline of the main website sales? It's unannounced but I didn't know if anyone might have inside information on this.

    It seems the coupon was separate (and unfortunately already expired). The prices here seem to match what was listed above. I will call shortly and see what I can find out.

    Now that my Strands have started to break in I'm realizing that they are a half size long as my feet slide forward a bit in the shoe when I walk (especially with thin socks). Has anyone had any luck exchanging on shoes worn outside, for several months. I seem to recall someone mentioning a similar situation but I can't find the post.

    Have you tried tongue pads? This greatly helped the fit on a pair of McT's that are 1/2 size too long.

    I have not but that is a good backup plan if I end up being stuck with them (which I think will be the case).

    Those pictures on the BB don't do justice to the shoe. Here is a actual photo of mine. I have only worn them once, but I really like them. FYI, they are unlined.
