    Is that the price on seconds from the Shoe Bank? Or are they available elsewhere at that price?

    Yes, they're seconds. I have yet to get a pair of seconds that were so objectionable I had to return them. Fingers crossed my luck continues.

    I picked them up for $199 today, they were at $390 when I picked up my Tresanas about a month ago. Considering that they are first quality, and comparable to the new independence line, it was a bargain.

    how's the quality on urs? pretty good? the 11D that i tried on in store was pretty good quality.

    i m debating between the golden goose longwing on thecorner and the walnut players because I want either a longwing or a wingtip.

    but given that i dunno anything about golden goose, it's an italian brand i might just go with the players. even if that means i will have 2 walnut color shoes, the Strand and the Players. :slayer:

    Cool beans.

    So, 8.5EE or a 8.5EEE for a true 9E in Strand last?

    i dun think Strand comes in with 8.5EE unless you have AE custom made it just for you.

    454Casull and tv2177: the two of you are talking about completely different shoes. 454Casull asked about the fit of the Strands, which is on the 5 last. As shown above, tv2177 responded regarding the 2 last. I have Park Avenues and Strands in the 5 last and find them TTS for me. I have heard the same from others as well. If these are your first AE's, I would make every effort to get sized before purchasing. If that's not possible, I would buy the Strands in your normal size as a starting point.

    that must be my mistake. i meant the 5 last when i said that the last is longer. Here we go, some people find it TTS when I find that I need to sized down to get the best fit.

    Exactly. That's why he really needs to get fitted.

    yeah, I thought about it but since he said that he can't get to a retail store and try them on so I stop short of asking him to do that.
