    I just got a pair of firsts from a seller in eBay for 299 shipped. Certificate, numbering, shoe trees, and never worn! Now I want a pair of 721s.

    So lately I've been seeing many comments about "Allison" being a good contact. I haven't ordered from her yet as Kristle from J'Ville has always taken care of me. I know J'Ville has taken care of many of us here on the board. Is there an advantage of dealing with Allison? Is she giving discounts? I'm all for saving some money!

    Allison is our contact for MTO shoes. She works out of the AE factory. She does not give additional discounts.

    Great deal! Haven't seen them on eBay in the past few days though, but will keep an eye.

    And here I thought I was getting something kinda unique when I placed my MTO for a pair of Merlot Strands.... Guess not, oh well.

    Can someone tell me how the AE Strands fit compared to the Alden Barrie? Size up from my Barrie sizing or same?

    Quote:Wow, that amazes me. I have wide-sih feet with a high instep. Barrie is a comfortable, even slightly roomy fit. Strand is too narrow for me to make work in a D width no matter what the size. I'd have to go to an E.

    I could go to an E because of my high instep, but I'm afraid it would comprimise the rest of the fit (which right now is perfect). I just deal with the slightly wide lacing gap.

    Those are two different Allisons. The Allison in question does work at the Port Washingtone headquarters. Fwiw, there's another Allison that I know of, who works at the Freeport store.

    Although the stores could place an MTO order, they can't wave you a custom fee and they won't be able to add the bells and whistles beyond what you'd be able to get on the AE webpage.

    I wear the same length in both, but I get normal width on the Barrie last (tried E once and was swimming in them) and E-width on the 5 last.

    This is not correct. The Allison discussed in this thread works at headquarters and her and Deborah handle all the MTO orders as part of the SF SWAT team formed by AE's CEO

    I'm sure Allison is providing good service, that being said, all stores can place MTO and J'Ville has been a big resource for many of us. The phone orders business is important to J'Ville and they just wanted me to reiterate that they can accommodate any type of order and would love the opportunity to serve. I've purchased over a dozen shoes from Kristle and Kelsey with personalized service. Just wanted to give them a plug. That is all, I'll get off my soapbox.
