Hey guys, My first post on this thread, and posting some pics. This was my first AE purchase, taking advantage of the Nordstrom's sale. Love the style, and the fit was superb! Now I understand the happy reviews. On sale, the shoes were $225, I thought it a great bargain. Is it correct that this model is still made in US? One question: the sales guy said that AE is now accepting recrafting for soles that are not their own? He said he was talking to someone at the company. This does not sound right to me. Also, it sounded like Nordstrom offers their own cobbler service, which I would not really use, but he mentioned it. All rather odd.
