    Next time just use a wall for the background, and an on camera flash, pointed to the ceiling at an angle which lets the light come down in an angle towards the shoes. XD

    Just picked up grey long branch now thinking of pulling the trigger on bison Yuma. Brannick has me at 10D, any Yuma owners comment of sizing?

    Florida, unfortunately
    I really prefer the Hamptons over the other AE spectator styles. I think it is because the white is so prominent.

    I've been getting a lot of wear on mine this summer. It seems like spectators are enjoying a nice renaissance at the moment. Let's hope they don't come back "in fashion", that will ruin the fun.

    Those look really nice, and I like the blue colored socks with walnut shoes. I've never tried that before.

    Great story. Along these lines, I wish AE offered a "discrete packaging" service. Allow you to pick what you want the box to say, like REI or Amazon. My wife and kids go on and on every time an Allen Edmonds box gets delivered. Sometimes I think I would get less grief if it just had a big Playboy label on it.

    You have shamed your wife and your dear mother-in-law. And all of this on Mother's Day weekend.

    You are an awful person. :D

    Just got back from Jeffersonville.....

    Monica went so above and beyond to help me out. I was amazed. I was there for more than an hour digging through boxes.

    Ended up with a pair of brown v-tread Patriots that were a sales sample for 129, and a black and chili pair of Delrays for 129 each (They are matching the LaSalle price since they are basically the same shoe.)

    My first pair(s) of AE's, and I could not be more pleased with the experience, price, and product.

    Phones were ringing the whole time but feel free to call in now that I have mine :)

    edit: also cannot see a single thing wrong with any pair... maybe a few tiny scuffs on the leather, but they will look 10x worse after the first time that I wear them.

    Have yet to be in an actual Shoe Bank.

    What is the experience like? Do they let you pick through the selection to find the best quality and best looking shoe?

    Any horror stories of really bad looking shoes?

    It would be hard to find someone more pleasant to deal with. :nodding:

    They had displays set up but only for the Memorial Day featured items. The back of the store was just shelves full of boxed shoes arranged by size. There were also more in the back that she was able to grab for me. A little daunting at first as I have never even seen a pair of AE's before today, but once she measured my feet and I started trying on shoes, the experience was great.

    Pick through whatever you want. The only bad pair I saw was a pair of Delrays where the leather on the top of the shoe was all crinkled where the shoe bends. Probably would look like that after a while anyways. She was debating on whether or not to throw them in the damaged pile or not so you aren't going to find any shoes that are incredibly beat up or anything.

    What's Kristle's email? And is there any discount going on? I don't want to waste her time if there is no discount at all.

    everyone accesses the same email for that location I believe (as I've received responses from others to questions I've had)

    I could but then would likely get the business from my work colleagues. Maybe I should split the difference, although I would hate to miss out on Saturday delivery. Lately I've been answering "daddy, did you get another pair of shoes?" with "no, I think that's just a pair of shoe trees". Occasionally that has been the correct answer. [​IMG]
