    From the pictures it is too hard to tell, but you are right and I see creasing, so I would guess that they were not shell.

    Mine came Fedex, first time I've ever ordered from them so not sure if that is normal or not.

    For some reason, because my Townleys were coming to Canada, they had to be shipped from the Ohio store to Wisconsin, then re-shipped to me from there. They only went out from Wisconsin yesterday. I won't see them until next week. Ugh. Waiting sucks.

    I don't know the model, but they don't look like shell to me. Could be the old "cordovan" color, as in burgundy. I don't think you missed on much.

    Hey Flyswatter,

    I just wanted to let you know that there are Factory Seconds Amoks in Tan Suede and Brogue Suede going for $99.
    Call up your favourite SA to enquire! Also, I don't think the Jeffersonville 20% applies because they are on closeout.

    Looks like I'll be picking up a pair of McAllister's in Bourbon. But, I first need to stop by the AE store to get properly fitted. My 11.5D Hastings and 11.5E Strands don't fit properly. Not buying another pair of shoes on the #5 last until I can determine my proper size. Unfortunately, the only store is downtown which means I have to deal with traffic parking :(

    just got some park aves in the same size as a pair of old macallisters i have. as far as i can tell these are on the same last. however, the park ave feels much looser in the heel area. i am assuming the difference is because the macallisters are very well broken in (pick up from a consignment shop for $30), and the stiffness of the new leather sole exacerbates the feeling of heel slip. these two should fit the same, correct?

    Did someone here score the gently-used Walnut Strands in 11E from the Hitch-n-Post on eBay? I was in the lead til the bitter end, and then lost.
