    I would say anything you are going to have to die to get where you'd like them is an easy one to knock out. I'm not sure what your current shoe inventory is but I like the navy suede. I very much like the bourbon color and while I like the warwick a lot im not sure how the Mora 2.0 will look but that one has been tempting me for quite some time. I would keep the Clark street, looks great and I'm not usually a split toe fan. Kenilworth is not my favorite but if you are in need of some plain-toe maybe its a good/cheap option.

    I did not know they carried AE shoes. Now I have another site to add to my weekly rounds. I cannot decide if those White Leeds that they carry are hilarious or fantastic.

    Those sand suede Leeds are cool. I'd be all over them if they had a 10.5 B. No one carries narrow widths anymore....

    Buying 6 pair at one time deserves an award

    They had a pair or 2 at the Paramus outlet, but I don't remember the sizes. Wish Shoebank was easier to search.

    Someone should compile a list of stores that AE makes custom shoes for. I'd really like to know.

    So far I have...

    Nordstroms
    Club Monaco
    Brooks Brothers

    Who else?

    Wait a minute....
    How did this happen? I thought you said you weren't going to buy another pair for a while.

    Brown Dundees a comin' from our favorite EBay seller. Price was right, and the minor flaw can be covered over. Hek, it still feels like winter in NYC!

    Not trying to knock you, but you're kind of going overboard a little bit aren't you? Do all these things actually fit you satisfactorily? No matter how low the price is, if it doesn't fit, it isn't worth it. Having said that -

    1. Personally I just hate the style. The Clark St, Delray & Lasalle all fit me like a glove, but I just am not a fan of the look. I have nothing bad to say against them. If you have the need for another casual style, they should work.
    2. I would pass on this - the 114 last sucks plus at least for me blue suede is too limited of an option in a wardrobe that includes mostly business casual, black & charcoal.
    3. F-yeah! These totally didn't fit me but if they did I'd be all over this one. They were really wide for me, so I'd be surprised if a D worked for you.
    4. Mixed reaction - I tried this a few times actually. The 3 eyelets makes for a challenging fit. If you have a low arch (like you do), I bet you'd get some significant bowing at the back/heel. Not a bad choice, wouldn't be at the top of my list. Very formal look.
    5. I actually bought this and returned it (in black). Too much "stuff" going on for me - elongated, squared off toe, captoe medallion. Very flashy. You have to have the wardrobe. I think chili, merlot, oxblood, or something in that range would look a lot better.
    6. Looked at this one in person. This I'd actually like in black. Very Spartan looking - in the walnut & bourbon I was not a fan.

    Out of curiosity, what sizes are you looking at on the website - I wanted to see what else you might want to consider.

    I'm only going to comment on #1. I agree with you on the style. I have the Natural CXL Oak Street, and I like them so much better than the split-toe. I've gotten so many more compliments on them than I have on the GB Rush Streets, which are my personal favorites. The natural Oak Streets are making me want natural shell in everything, but the split-toe is not for me.
