    I have a pair of Hale's (8-108) and two fifth aves (5 last) and they are both great but in the same size the 5 aves feel a bit roomier while the Hale's feel like they are made for my feet. I wish there were more oxfords made on the 108, but I might be tempted to pick up a pair of Vernons.

    In walnut? Those look great!

    I just read they're on the 2 last though...that means I have to take a pass

    I'm sorry I can't help. For me, the 5 last is very narrow, so much so that I have to size up for width (from an E to a EE). The 2 last is notoriously hard to fit though. I couldn't find a size that worked for me. I've seen a few people complain of this. There are, of course, many people who don't have problems!

    Also, worst case, Nordstroms generally has a no questions asked return policy. I assume this holds true for their sales?

    I hope they work out and you can enjoy them though!

    This thread gets so many responses that there's no way I can keep track, so if this has been covered before, I'm sorry:

    If I wear 8D on the 5 last (Strand, FA, PA), what should I get on the MacNeil shell?

    And could someone compare the shape of the MacNeil with the Alden LWB?

    Don't get the Strandmoks. Put your credit card back in your wallet, close it and place it gently inside your pants pocket. The bright stitching and sole is too loud for me

    Now take your wallet back out, open it, take out said credit card and purchase these!

    Just having fun with you, peppercorn. I do like the Spiaggia better, but you should purchase shoes that make you happy. That is of course, if your budget allows. If it doesn't, than I say, "Don't mess with these blue suede shoes."

    These look as if Granny OptoDoc patched holes in my boots with one of Grandpa OptoDoc's old Tweed Jackets...without her glasses on. They look horrendous to me. I can see this working, but the incorporation of the Tweed in this boot looks sloppy to me.

    David,
    Brett may actually take an order over email and allow the person to pick it up?

    AE had their annual sale a couple of months ago and the Mcallisters were on sale.
    So, I contacted Nordstrom for a price match and they obliged. Right after that, Nordstrom placed a sale on the same shoes that AE had on sale.
    I assumed my price match alerted them to place the same shoes on sale. haha
