    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.

    I really like the walnut grain. It looks a bit darker than my non-grain walnut - I'm guessing the grain texture makes it darker - but I really like it, especially on the MacNeil.

    He should be wary about doing that because it's criminal and it would be defrauding and ripping off Nordstrom.

    You guys are harsh. I would guess he meant buy a pair from Nordstrom and return the previously purchased ones to the eBay seller.

    Do you know that Macneil is cordovan based off the number code? I have a pair of similar hue that has a nice patina and is developing rolls as opposed to creasing but like this pair, mine does not have dove tail heels...

    Sizing question.

    I wear 9.5EE on the 5 last and 9.5E on Alden Barie, what size do you think I should try on the 7 (Mcneil) last.

    Thanks.

    I have no affiliation with Nordstroms or Hangerproject or eBay or Amazon or NeedSupply or Sid Mashburn or . . . anything I have referred members to.

    As a consumer, I look for deals to purchase for myself. And if I am greatly satisfied with the end result of what I purchase, then I pass my experience along.

    For now, the Norstrom Sale will continue to August and appears to be the best deal around. And if anyone wishes to visit one of their department stores, I strongly recommend you only deal with the MANAGER of that department - because of some reports of other sales associates not providing a professional sizing and fit. Managers seem to have at least 10 to 20 years experience. It was one of these managers that I have worked with in recent months - and that I can refer members to contact directly - - - primarily because he is one to be trusted and will offer sale prices on sizes and colors that the internet site are not showing.

    Thanks for asking,

    David

    That is my interpretation . . . and completely legal and morally ethical.

    If the eBay versions are returnable, even if he has to pay shipping, the Nordstrom version at a discount would give him a professional sizing and fit. Insist on seeing a MANAGER for the best service

    My local Nordstrom store gave me a card for a free professional shoe shine on my new LONG BRANCH boots. The pro spent about 20 minutes applying a CREAM, light brushing, WAX, light brushing, and a BALM, followed by light brushing - all with COLOR MATCHING.

    The out-of-the-box shine is a masked look. The result of the shine gave them a bit of a soft glow (see above pic)

    All my best,

    I just ordered a pair from the shoe bank. They were $199. I'll report back when they come in. Great phone service as others on here have attested to!

    No problem whatsoever.

    Call the MANAGER at the local Nordstrom Shoe department. Explain you were fitted improperly in December and that the shoes need to be replaced with the proper fit. The manager can even order in another fit, but you need to see the manager in person so that he can determine exactly what your fit is. They will also do a full refund - but with the same going on right now, you might be able to exchange the value of your receipt for another pair.

    Thanks for the question,

    David

    It looks like August 4th is the last sale day.

    Before you go with the plan, I suggest you revisit the original eBay sale listing and look at the 'RETURN' policy. Most eBay Sellers with good ratings will permit you to return the shoes for a full refund as long as you pay the shipping. But read the their return policy carefully, and communicate your desire to return the shoes in writing by using the eBay email system to contact the seller. If the seller asks why, simply tell him the truth that you are not satisfied with the purchase and you have decided to buy another pair of shoes from a different retailer. No need to mention Nordstroms.

    With your approved return, you can then contact the Nordstrom MANAGER for a professional fit and sizing.

    David

    PS: Regarding what some other members read in your plan, I don't see any unethical issues about buying another pair from Nordstroms and returning the eBay pair of shoes to the eBay seller for a refund. But some folks think you might have meant buying a pair from Nordstroms and then returning the eBay pair to Nordstroms (which would be morally unethical). Nevertheless, some folks try to do that . . . and they get caught because seconds are marked in the shoes and cannot be returned as "firsts".

    So in the end, my read of what you wrote is right on and would be what I would do - all above board and the ability to sleep at night!

    That is how I took it as well. Give the guy the benefit of the doubt before we condemn him. It would be rather brash to say that you were going to intentionally defraud a company, even if anonymously on an internet forum.

    Which local Nordstrom store gave you the card for the free professional shoe shine? The Nordstrom web site doesn't show any Nordstrom stores in Montana.

    I in no way need new shoes, but I am really tempted to order the walnut Strands from Nordstrom for $229. I don;t need them, but I need to order them. Makes sense, right?
