Is that the price on seconds from the Shoe Bank? Or are they available elsewhere at that price?
if you don't mind me asking, how much are they going for?
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.
They are scanning at $199 now, I didn't even have to ask for a discount
They're in transit. I'll try and remember to post pics.
ok sweet thanks
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.
