    You are correct about the online sale. The additional styles and selections that were provided to me were direct from one of the Manager's Sale List, which is not entirely available online today. I suggest you contact him privately and tell him what style and what color - and go from there.

    Sorry, but I can't understand what shoe, what store, what year you are referring to. But here is the Nordstrom's policy:

    "If one of our shoe professionals sizes your feet incorrectly while purchasing AE shoes at the same time, and you wear the AE shoes for a reasonable time and develop a sizing issue based on an incorrect sizing - the we will either refund or replace the shoes."

    In my opinion, what Norstroms is saying is . . . the specific purchased shoes you walk out of their store is guaranteed to your satisfaction, even though you may have worn them from several months or a year. It could very well be that the manufactured "lot" fits you, but the same size and style from Amazon or another retailer may not be of the same lot.

    The AE Store does not guarantee worn shoes, but Nordstroms does.

    The heel pads are replaced (they're replaced with a new heel pad and covering lining that reads Alden Restoration). Insoles can never be replaced.

    Nordstroms does. Contact the Nordstrom Manager and he/she will ship the style you want directly from one of their USA stores directly to you in Canada for a flat rate of approximately $25 to $35. If you wish to return them, they will pay for free shipping from Canada back to their USA Store.

    i know that feeling....in the last 2-3 years i've gone up and down 1.5 sizes, whereas before, i'd just get an 11 in everything, because that was my nike size.

    i'm even a 10.5 in nike now....

    two pieces of advice: get sized (and buy if price is good) in store for the shoes you want to save yourself weeks of frustration online (if they're a mainstream shoe like AE) and don't just assume you're a certain size and continue to keep/wear the shoes if you don't feel 100% in them.

    Absolutely.

    A few weeks back you sent a private message to me for the name and phone number of the manager. You may wish to check it.

    I got what I wanted, even though the local store did not have it in stock. They checked to see if the color and style was available and ordered it in. They also offered to ship it to me.

    The sale includes the Daltons at OVER $130 OFF. Contact the manager and tell him what you want and see what happens. What can you lose?

    I don't really understand why AE discontinued the Amok. It's a great chukka and now a simple suede chukka is a gap missing from their lineup
