I was under the impression that all shoes were on sale, RTP.
Thanks Tifosi. That's what I thought.
Plan on going for anything in particular?
I'm due for a pair of plaintoe shell. I would be interested in some Dundees, Leeds or brown norwiches, if they are at an attractive enough price
My guess is that they will be $505 @ 15% off.
I was just thinking if there was anything I should get to take advantage. Norwich sounds good. I would prefer something brown, but there isn't much in brown stock that isn't a bal. In fact I don't think there is anything besides the Dundee (which I already have coming in cappuccino)
I hear you. I also find this system inefficient and at times humiliating. This mostly happens at the ShoeBank, which gets ridiculously busy during the sales. I was told that SAs don't get percent from their sales during the sale event (please pardon my tautology). This has been one of the reason I stopped dealing with the ShoeBank at first place.
I don't know why AE can't implement the same system as the ShoeMart, where the list gets generated and sent to your email address once in a couple of months. Of course, we'll be likely to get this list far more often in case of AE.
I definitely understand what you are talking about. Sometimes I get the same delay, and it seems if you cast a wider net, your chances increase (email 2 different outlets, one will answer... or just pick up the phone). I don't have experience with the shoemart's system. but it does sound interesting. How are their prices in terms of % off vs. AE's shoebank?
I might have to look into this, but I don't exactly know my alden sizing, and some major QC issues on firsts in the alden thread have me wary.
As far as TheShoeMarts Alden seconds list...Calf shoes are $299 and shell shoes are $399. Not much variation.
I don't know if the shoe mart has lists for any other manufacturers.
Let me add that the boots are also $299 and $399 respectively.
Yes, thank you. I thought about that as I was typing it haha.
The ShoeMart mailing list is very hit or miss. I'm not sure what kind of database they use, but sometimes people get them and sometimes they don't.
Good question, and sorry I didn't catch this before. The first page contains a letter from Mr. Grangaard which states "...plus, save 14.92% on all other Allen Edmonds branded items..."
So yes, it would appear as if shell is included.
Just under $550 with tax. Not bad...
