    Must be an interesting way to shop for shoes. Kinda like going to Payless and see the shelves of boxed shoes.

    Going to have to make it out to my local Shoe Bank some time soon. It's over an hour away.

    Pretty fair analogy. I drove over an hour to get there. Was planning on going on Monday when the sale started, but moved some things around today when I found out they were honoring it early. Good idea too the way the phones were ringing.

    Welcome aboard, and that you for posting a great photo!

    Am I to assume you will be keeping the Welt and Edge dressing in a Natural Color? If so, what brand of edge polish will you be using?

    All my best,

    David

    Why not just answer his question? (He's a newcomer with 15 posts, and probably wanted to confirm what has been posted here)

    Based on the advice on this forum I've emailed them as well and gotten very quick responses. What about all the other outlet locations however? If I'm looking for something in particular is it best to email a few? I'm not close to one so it'll be shipped to me anyway. Do they all have the same sales or is it worth getting on the mailing list for several locations?

    With the fifth film adaptation of The Great Gatsby in theaters now, we may see some very nice shoes and attire come out later this year - as fans enjoy the production styles, and also revisit the original Robert Redford portrayal. Film can lead to styles in the stores.

    BB's usually have a padded insole and sometimes the soles are also different. For example, on the BB Strands the sole is a rubber/leather combo. There are much more knowledgeable people here who can add more but hopefully this is a decent start.

    I made it to that Alden store last summer. I was hoping to try on a few models and perhaps even make a purchase, but they had very little in my size. Should have picked up some Leather Defender though, as I can't find many places to order it. They have it at JCrew, but the $9 shipping is a bit steep. It's been raining all week so I could have used it.

    I have the same issue with the BB Elgins I bought. The thicker insole makes my feet sit higher in the shoe, hence it doesn't fit as well overall as my other regular AEs. There's more slippage at the heel unless I tie the shoelaces super tight. I've tried to remedy this by buying the AE waxed laces, which grip better over the course of the day. (The BB Elgins came with fairly cheap laces that loosened quite easily.) I hope this fixes the issue. Didn't consider changing sizes or width since the size I got is the size that fits best.
