    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Thanks, this is helpful. I'm with you in that 50% of the original price definitely triggers a shoe bank buy, but at only a $50 discount I'm hesitating. I called, and they said the particular shoe I'm looking at looks great except for creasing on one shoe from try-ons. Might be worth a shot, although perhaps I should go with something like another Strand at a $100+ discount instead.

    I would also have grabbed a snuff suede second in the Acheson or Strand, but, being brand new, it's understandable that they don't yet have many seconds in my unusual size.

    Wore my Lombards today. Think they were Cognac when I got them. Have no idea what color they are now after several years of wearing and polishing. Near as I can figure, they're just about this color now........

    If you can find a second with only a creasing problem, that's the best kind of problem you will find. That's going to happen anyway with wear. There's several much more disastrous problems that can happen with a pair of seconds.

    I forgot to mention that you can call the store and ask how it looks so good call on your part.

    Creasing non issue if you like the shoe and it saves you $50 maybe worth a shot.

    Thanks guys. I think I'm going to pull the trigger on the shoe bank Fifth Avenue in dark chili burnished on the dainite sole. Been wanting to grab the Fifth Avenue for some time now.

    The sizes online are the sizes they have at their warehouse only. You should go to a local Nordstrom and they can check to see if they have your size at any other Nordstrom around the country. I've done it before with previous orders that don't show my size online.

    Did your order ship yet? I placed mine on Monday and my card was charged, but on their site the status is still listed as Processing.

    Agreed.

    As seconds go my pair or McGregor's in Oxblood was a shoebank CCC second. SInce you can't just call the CCC and have them take a look at the shoes, based on the fact that I could return them and the fact that at the time these were normally $197 even on the shoebank and this pair was all the way down to $134 I decided to give it a shot.

    When I received them my jaw dropped as the issue was the color on the throat just did not match between the 2 shoes (extremely noticeable), the one was clearly much darker than the other. Oddly what I found was the shoe that was much darker it just rubbed off with shoe cleaner and a little elbow grease.

    I theorize that when they did the burnishing of the toe they somehow got something further up on the one shoe, didn't clean it, and it just failed QC for color. I think since it was so noticeable they marked them down an extra $65 but for me it was a good deal and worked out in the end.

    As much as I was shocked when I opened the box for that price if the darkness could not have been removed I was thinking to just try some dark polish on the other to blend it to match.

    In either case if it did not work out to my satisfaction I could have returned them but they are now one of the most comfortable shoes I have and Oxblood is one of my most favorite colors.

    As is mine. Assuming they are swamped with orders, and possibly waiting for stock from Loake.

    I know pediwear lists everything in stock on their website but sometimes have to wait for the shoe to ship from Loake before sending it off to the customer.

    @007Bond Fyi - those Sheltons fit WILDLY differently. If you have a high instep, get the new one, no questions.

    Has anyone tried the Cascade yet? I'm tempted with the RDA right now. The brown Strandmoks and Dark Chili Delray's are tempting as well even though I already have a chili Delray. And the Dark Chili Dalton.... Too many options!!
