1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Does the 20% off apply to seconds as well?

    Pretty much anything from the Independence collection, right? Of course, I'm going strictly by the names of the shoes. [​IMG]

    The sale is on the website and full price brick and mortar locations. Completely different then seconds.

    Its a great deal if you can find something you want.

    Mora 2.0 seconds arrived, love them! Fit a bit large, but with thicker socks and an insole, they are fine. $245 J

    Say, I don't suppose anyone has ever tried adding a bit of merlot AE polish to their brown/dark brown AE shoes? Curious if anyone might have tried, and have pics of the result? J

    Looks great, a monk strap is still a hole in my collection. What kind of insole are you using in them?

    Not sure of brand, but they're leather and not too thick. Picked up tongue pads too, but don't think I'll need them. J

    I ordered a pair of Amok's last Thursday as well. Instead of calling though I emailed customer service to see if that order can be amended to receive the 20% off, considering the shoes are slated to be shipped in 8 weeks. Maybe it would make more sense to call tomorrow, instead of waiting for an email response.

    (since my order included both possibilities) what the SA on the phone told me today:
    • for pairs not yet shipped/billed, it was canceled and re-ordered with the discount
    • for pairs just/already shipped/billed, a refund for the discount made

    Perfect. I mean $147.00 is a pretty good deal, but $117.00 is fantastic. Every little bit counts.

    Received a pair of Black Hills today. Got them on Ebay, I believe they were seconds, but can't find any major defects. The distressed areas and cracks on the right shoe are slightly more pronounced than the left, so maybe that's it. Fortunately they fit quite well, and much better than the Park Ave's I have, oddly enough on the same last. I can't wait for the snow in Toronto to melt to start rocking em. [​IMG]

    Question regarding the Amok's. On the website they're obviously on clearance, but it still says "Handcrafted in 8 weeks". Is this actually the case, or will they arrive sooner (i.e. is this just standard blurb AE slaps on everything)?

    Considered a pair of Elgins today but passed since I already own the McTavish in the same color. Going to hold out for some Rush St.'s instead when they go on sale :)

    Thanks, Tomlu.

    Why wouldn´t the 9.5Es stretch? They are a little less snug but bending the shoes while walking and occasional kneeling would also stretch them a bit, right? I fear having them stretch further and making the heel sleep more although your point about the cork sole makes sense.

    I´m curious. How can lacing reduce slippage?

    They should be perfect then. I wear them in the same type of scenario and use the Alden foot balance insole if I need a thicker one

    Gents, what is the general conversion between a 5-65 / Park Avenue size and width and a 511G / Golf range size and width?

    Considering come clearance 1 Ups. I am a 10.5 B or C in 5-65 lasted shoes like the PA/5th Ave.

    Thanks
