    Very tempting on the Higgins Mill I had put in an offer on the eBay pair for $200 the seller let it expire, then I bumped up my second offer to $225 but the seller still no reply sitting on the offer 36 hours now not even a counter. So his buy it now is $255 so that is $5 more than current sale. So I see seconds on sale for $199 now so I just canceled my offer to the seller as with the sale his boots are just not worth what he is asking. I assume since he did not counter either of my offers he wants to keep them or sell for full price and I can get them for less from AE.

    Also Overlord for $157 very tempting.

    That puts the HM back at the price I got them at when they first came out. $250 is a steal for first-quality versions of this. The $199 for seconds from the ShoeBank is even better. If you ever had the slightest inkling of buying this boot, go for it now. Seriously, my favorite AE of all time. I'm considering moving to an even colder climate than the one in Chicago, just so I can wear it longer in the year. I wonder if I can telecommute from Fargo.

    Nah, they aren't clearancing the Higgins Mill -- they are just struggling to keep with demand. Call the stores if you want to find one. They probably have your size in some store (they can check all the stores inventory).

    Quote: I don't mean this to be critical, but your review left me a little confused. When you say "larger than normal" - you mean vs. the 65-last or compared to other 201-lasted shoes? If the latter, then I can probably get away with a 11.5D instead of the E that I need in some 65-last shoes (my McT's are all D's). For me, I take a 12 in all true-to-size lasts, but for the 201 I wear the same 11.5 I take in the 65-last (and several others where I am 1/2 size down from Brannock). I can't tell if you're recommended people take the same size as their 65-last shoes or not. My Shannon Drives (which were 11.5D) felt a tiny bit longer and looked longer than they actually were, but a 12 would definitely have been too big. I didn't realize there were no E's made, but the way you describe the leather it makes me feel like I could pull off a D with a bit of stretch. The other hitch here is what I'd have to replace with these, and the most likely candidate is one of my favorites: the Cognac McTavish.

    I wear 7.5 E on the Park Ave and 8 D on the Overlord if that helps. 8 D is the only size that would work for me in this shoe. 7.5 E would have been too wide at the heel. Sizing is a little tricky with this one.

    Do you own the Shannon Drive? If so what size?

    Sadly, I don't. :(

    I will say that I go with my true size (8 D) in the Overlord, which is the same size I wear in the Leeds, Carlyle, and almost everything else I own. It's just the Park Ave where I size down to 7.5 (well, and the 333, but you get the point).

    @M635Guy I edited my post above to give a better answer. Hope it helps. I would be careful going with the same length as you 65 size in a D width. If you went up 1/2 size in length (what I did), it could work.
