    I did some shoe care on my First Aves boots last night as well as upgrade to flat wax laces. Not only do I prefer the look, these laces stay "locked in" and do not loosen up throughout the day. Thank you to whoever suggested this change a while back and provided the link.

    Just got my BB Warwicks in dark chilli and they look great so now I sit here on the final day of this sale contemplating if I need 5A in dark chili or not. I have 5A in bourbon already. PA in black, brown antibe, oxblood. McAllister in merlot. I'd like warwicks in oxblood too but at this point I think the only one I could remotely justify (with fictional tales of need) is the 5A right now. Thoughts? I'm saving walnut for strands when they are on sale.

    I would appear the 65 last has done me wrong. I got these Merlot McAllister's off ebay in my normal 10.5D size, but these are not going to work.... I swear I remember being sized 10.5d in the store on a 65 last. I need to look at my other shoes for size.

    I loved the BB Warwick in dark chili. I went through 2-3 seconds after finally giving up, I couldn't find a pair that would stay on. Glad you found a pair that worked for you.

    On the strands - you can get them for $240 right now on Bloomingdales with the SHOP25 and the buy more save more thing they have going, if they have your size and you don't want to wait and see what the price will be for the RDA or Nordstrom anniversary...just sayin'

    I was so excited to see the Bloomingdales sales only to find they do not have any in 9.5E so Nordstrom or RDA is my choice on the strands front. As for today though... do I need those 5As.... I think the real answer is no lol. These sales are like drugs....

    Can you get a nice glacage on the rogue toe, or are the perforations just too big?

    That is a bummer. Figured you might be a D width if you fit in the BBs. The warwicks are why I bought the fifth, justifying it as a "need" to get another Dainite sole, it worked on my wife. I have the bourbon strand in Dainite, strandmok, now the fifth. That way I will have an easy rotation for the winter. The BB soles are great, but rock salt tears up the leather on the split heel and we have a long enough cold season that I would rather not walk on my tippy toes or wear overshoes to protect them. It would be $150 to get another pair resoled to Dainite, so 245 isn't that bad for new.

    Flat laces looks interesting! I might want to try that out.

    Yup that's what I'm talking about! Laces AND the shine look great.

    See if your CC has a price protection/match program. A couple of mine do, so when someone other than AE has a sale I'll usually order from AE and then have my CC refund me the difference. This is how you get in on sales from places that don't carry your size :).

    Well the warwick is on a different last that lets me go with 9.5D rather than E. For the 65 last I can't wear 9.5D it's too tight. I like your justification as that was going to be mine haha.


    Not a bad idea I'll have to check that out. I didn't think they would apply to it sales.

    Totally agree with you -- if they put the shoe out in a full run AFTER it has been out for months that would make no sense. AE does questionable things sometimes, but I would hope they wouldn't wait to satisfy their customers who buy narrow width shoes (like me).
