Beautiful booties, congratulaions! Just gorgeous.
Here are mine
Thanks! I just ordered a pair but have never seen seen them irl.
Any shoe tree will work. I personally use J&M since a local shoe-store sells them at deep-discounted price. Nordstrom Rack carry's Woodlore shoe trees at around $14.99. Woodlore is the manufacturer of AE's shoe trees.
Don't really understand the obsession with AE leeds. There are much nicer shoes available.
I have the Van Ness in burgundy and receive lots of compliments. Most have no idea its a rubber soled shoe.
To each his own.
Gunboats are classic. There may in fact be no better shoe for most all occasions. Dress it up, dress it down. You could get by with just this one pair of shoes if you wanted to. From a walk in the park to a black tie event, without even changing shoes.
I picked up a pair of Bayfields today. Love the feel of the boot. So comfy and much needed here in the midwest.
Thinking of getting the Sanford. Is the $275 sale price a good deal on it? Or will it be had for cheaper later?
Maybe as a second. There's a fellow round these parts who sells them for less I think...ALLABOUTSHOES IIRC.
went to the outlet today and Edward was very helpful. he told me there might be a boot sale soon and another sale after that would be the February 7th sale. The walnut lombards seconds are $140. they also have the Nordstrom player's shoe on sale for $149. I also see the chocolate and snuff suede player's shoe but not sure what the price is.
Edward was also very nice to hold a chocolate Dalton in my size until the sale.
once again, their service is extremely satisfactory.
What is the Nordstrom Player's Shoe? Is that the walnut version?
yes the walnut leather version of the player's shoe, really awesome, especially it's with the leather sole as opposed to the rubber sole on the lombards.
how much will the dalton's be?
he didn't know himself, so i guess we'll have to find out when the sale is here.
