    the AE E fitting to me is like the F UK fitting, so you may need a US9E or EEE, but that is like a whole size difference to the size chart, which I believe is one of the best size charts out there....

    So you need send an email to AE with your feet measurements to make sure, and let us know how you went :)

    It hasn't changed. It is only a couple of days newer than the original reports, but it is still referencing the original Reuters report as the source.

    Has anyone on this page ordered from user: AllAboutShoes?

    The prices and selection he offers is quite impressive. Would love to hear from any first hand transactions.

    THanks.

    I really like the walnut grain. It looks a bit darker than my non-grain walnut - I'm guessing the grain texture makes it darker - but I really like it, especially on the MacNeil.

    He should be wary about doing that because it's criminal and it would be defrauding and ripping off Nordstrom.

    You guys are harsh. I would guess he meant buy a pair from Nordstrom and return the previously purchased ones to the eBay seller.

    Do you know that Macneil is cordovan based off the number code? I have a pair of similar hue that has a nice patina and is developing rolls as opposed to creasing but like this pair, mine does not have dove tail heels...

    Sizing question.

    I wear 9.5EE on the 5 last and 9.5E on Alden Barie, what size do you think I should try on the 7 (Mcneil) last.

    Thanks.

    I have no affiliation with Nordstroms or Hangerproject or eBay or Amazon or NeedSupply or Sid Mashburn or . . . anything I have referred members to.

    As a consumer, I look for deals to purchase for myself. And if I am greatly satisfied with the end result of what I purchase, then I pass my experience along.

    For now, the Norstrom Sale will continue to August and appears to be the best deal around. And if anyone wishes to visit one of their department stores, I strongly recommend you only deal with the MANAGER of that department - because of some reports of other sales associates not providing a professional sizing and fit. Managers seem to have at least 10 to 20 years experience. It was one of these managers that I have worked with in recent months - and that I can refer members to contact directly - - - primarily because he is one to be trusted and will offer sale prices on sizes and colors that the internet site are not showing.

    Thanks for asking,

    David

    That is my interpretation . . . and completely legal and morally ethical.

    If the eBay versions are returnable, even if he has to pay shipping, the Nordstrom version at a discount would give him a professional sizing and fit. Insist on seeing a MANAGER for the best service

    My local Nordstrom store gave me a card for a free professional shoe shine on my new LONG BRANCH boots. The pro spent about 20 minutes applying a CREAM, light brushing, WAX, light brushing, and a BALM, followed by light brushing - all with COLOR MATCHING.

    The out-of-the-box shine is a masked look. The result of the shine gave them a bit of a soft glow (see above pic)

    All my best,

    David
