    You snooze, you lose, I guess.

    I almost bought a pair of the chocolate Amoks at 2am EST, but decided to sleep on it. And now it's gone.

    Ah well, it's not as if I don't already have five pairs of brown AE chukkas...

    Is the 2 for $250 good on all of the calfskin seconds? Or is it just closeouts? No cordovan at that price I'm sure.

    Haha. I really wanted to pull the trigger on a pair of snuff suede Amoks last night. Saw that they're gone now and am kinda relieved. With my wife going on mat leave in early October I need to be extremely stingy, but it seemed like such a good deal lol.

    Well, the damn "FLASH SALE" showed up on www.dealnews.com & www.slickdeals.net yesterday afternoon - once that happens it's all over!!

    I have a search for Allen Edmonds to have anything pop up when it's posted on slickdeals.net it's got me several deals, but the guys on here always post here first I'd guess.

    Was contemplating getting a pair of Kenwoods on the flash sale ($87 vs. $295), but they are also gone by now. This is literally a flash sale.

    That's weird, because for me it says that it'll take 3-5 weeks to make... Maybe give them a call?

    Grabbed the Eagle County's. Lets hope they fit. $125 was too good to pass up.

    I just saw all the posts saying they are off the site now. May be still worth a shot though. :)

    It's only for closeout seconds.

    Just called the store. Was told once they are gone from the site, they are gone for good. They didn't even bother locating them at the brick and mortar stores.

    I ordered a pair last night and they also said it'll take 3-5 weeks to make. Maybe they ran out of the pre-cut uppers?

    Yep...Last night, I copped two pairs (for sizing). I thought about sleeping on it, but now I'm glad that I didn't!

    A few pages ago there was discussion about calf versus cordovan in the winter. I live in New England and am looking for some winter footwear. I work in the city so there are times when I need to navigate sidewalks that may have snow, slush, water and salt. What material generally handles this best - calf or shell?

    I'm probably going to need to go the MTO route because I can't find any Bayfield in my size (Lands End only has D widths) and I'm also thinking about putting a different sole on some Daltons. Do I need to do that or will the leather sole be okay if it gets a little wet? I don't want to make them too casual with a thick rubber sole.

    I'm also concerned about salt. What do you guys generally do once you get to the office and/or home if you think some salt got on the upper? "Move to a warmer climate" is a perfectly legitimate response.

    Thanks!

    Adam,

    I live in the same conditions as you. I go with the commando style sole as it is very low profile and I feel performs much better than a leather sole in icy conditions. For me a leather sole gets slick and doesnt provide much traction. As for calf vs. shell, my preference is shell as I find salt much easier to wipe clean but that is totally your call.

    I have these in navy and think they are a must for navigating NE winters...
