    European lasts are more oval square compare to AE roundness, so they will look quite different even on the same style, and they will cost more than AE.

    I am not sure how long the sale goes. I emailed the PW Shoe Bank yesterday and Shirley told me all shell seconds were $299. I am guessing what they have will not last long. As for what I ordered, I think I was a rare exception to get a pair of Walnut Shell. In fact, they did not appear on the list she sent me. I had her search for them because I knew that the MTO shoe I had made that did not pass inspection was eventually going to end up at the shoe bank. I had asked a few times with no luck, but Shirley found it. They ship today. Can't wait to get them.

    The ones coming have a brown welt. The ones I already got have a natural. I had seen a pic of the natural and liked it. When Allison told me the shoe didn't pass inspection and they had to make me a different pair, I asked if I could change to a natural welt. She said yes. So now I will have a pair with natural and brown welts.

    Here is a pic of mine with the natural welt. I will post the seconds with the brown welt when they come. Shirley said she could not figure out why they are seconds.

    Email them or call them when they open today. I bet it applies to all outlets and the shoe bank.

    Received a list myself just now, but unfortunately nothing I was hoping for. The best option is the Park Avenue in black or brown but I have no use for such a formal shoe in the next few years. Other options are the Randolph, Patriot, Westchester, Bradley, Norwich, Cambridge in black.

    I do however see some purple suede Strands on the list. Wonder where that came from.

    On another note, I'm wearing my Elgins for the first time today.

    The Elgins are one of my favorite AE shoes and my very first AE purchase at the ShoeBank in Brookfield.

    They look great with those socks too tietherope




    This darn $299 Shell sale has me thinking hard about another pair. Unreal the deals AE keeps spitting out!!

    I have a feeling, considering my size, I'll have the same issue. My size seems to be too popular.

    No Dalton seconds in shell per my outlet's contact. Was going to be my first shell. [​IMG]

    Guess I'll just have to keep my walnut calf ones I got last weekend. [​IMG]

    Last time I checked (a month or two ago) they've got the Grayson and the Leeds in burgundy shell in my size, along with what looks like a second-quality version of the MacNeil pair I ordered earlier this year.

    I'm sorely tempted -- but saving to start some mutual fund investments instead. Given how popular my size is(n't), they'll probably still be there at next sale... and if not, it wasn't meant to be.

    Jumped on a pair of Brown Cordovan Strands. I hope ordering the same size as calf will do.
