    I just bought these AE suede longwings from Nordstrom Rack for about $130 on clearance. What model are they? These are my first pair of AE's.

    I agree that the shells in store look terrible. Based on the photos in this thread, you can tell that actual AE shells that customers receive here are actually quite beautiful. For some reason, the Norwich in brown Shell seems to look like a different color than other brown shells and I would agree, looks somewhat off. An MTO in the dark brown such as the one shown in GOP Shoe Guy's Jeffersons would be beautiful, if that's the actual color they came in. The right opportunity might be now, since $505.75 for a shell MTO is likely going down as the best bargain ever.

    Just a PSA for those interested in both the Long Branch and Bayfield. I got them both in the same size, but the Bayfield seems to run small (at least for my foot). Sized up a half in the Bayfield and it now fits just like the Longbranch. Even in two different sizes, when placed heel to heel they are the same exact length.

    I don't understand all of the recent posts with people hating on AE Shell. I would agree that often there is a bunch of creme on them when new, but after a bit of care they are beautiful. Just take a few seconds to look at the pics on here and you will see that. I will admit that on occasion there is always the exception to the rule, but I just cant understand all the negative posts re: AE shell.

    Nice looking shoes in my opinion. I considered getting a pair a few months ago but I think they were around $230. I believe they are called the Schautal, at least that's what it said on the box:

    Don't think the posts are as much on hating AE Shell as it is how they care for them and present them in their stores.

    I think the Elgins were on the 5 last.

    Hi all -

    Does anyone know anything about the Sterling model in crocodile/alligator? Theres not much info online about it except one expired auction for an odd size :
    http://www.ebay.com/itm/Allen-Edmon...D&orig_cvip=true&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2557

    Was it a limited edition or any idea of retail price?

    Forgive me if this has been covered somewhere, but I dont follow this thread regularly. Any info is appreciated!

    These are suede MacNeils made for the European market.

    Agreed. Obviously, I didn't seriously mean AE should have imposed any restrictions on the walnut shell. I merely wish they still had it in stock.

    Got Mora 2.0s in Bourbon and am a bit disappointed in the color. Not as dark as the Bourbon Strands I already have. Thinking about going MTO for Merlot Mora 2.0s with Allison. Would be same $293.25 price, correct?

    Any thoughts on a burgundy/merlot Mora? Would love to get a second opinion on whether this is something I should even be entertaining.
