    FTW!

    Sounds like he's just referring to the shoebank in general, not any particular sale they're having.

    I assume $257 is for first quality Daltons? That price doesn't seem very attractive for seconds.

    I got mine in an 8E (wanted an 8.5D, but none in brown) and my pinky toes are quite cramped in them as well. Not sure if they are going to work out. I tried stretching them with an over-sized shoe tree for 2 nights to no avail. Been walking around the house with them quite a bit. In a few more days, if no relief, they will be going back...which would be a shame, as these are quite a steal for $130.

    Firsts are $395 so I'd say that's a fair discount for seconds.

    Yeah I am usually an 11 E and got a 11 D, and they are beautiful shoes. I am hoping with a few more heavy wears they will stretch out. I will report back.

    I knew those pants looked familiar! They were tight as all hell on me and need to be returned. Really kicking myself for not picking up the singletons...

    They're on the 5-last, but because of the way they're put together (linen, different lacing style, different insole and thicker sole), they fit just a touch looser (around the ankle and over the top of your feet).

    I think they're on the 4-last. I ordered the same size I usually order for 5-last shoes, and they feel extremely comfortable.

    The only part I expect to need breaking in is the sole.

    Also, since they have this lacing style, they can unlace quickly and I doubt anyone would need a shoe horn after the tongue moves out of the way (I didn't step on the heel at all).
