    Just called and picked up a pair of Bourbon Dalton seconds... not going to lie I am nervous as all hell lol. I am in Canada and if the defect is bad it is going to cost like $50 to ship and restock them. Wish me luck guys!


    Can any Canadians speak on if they have been charged anthing on delivery for factory seconds? When I order from the AE website it comes FedEx with no additional charges so I am hoping for the same from the Shoebank.

    Awesome, thanks for the info. They were $239 and $45 shipping. Was hoping for chocolate in my size too but no luck.

    Not sure where you are in Canada, but in my case (Vancouver area), I get AE and other products I order online shipped to a postal depot just on the US side of the border, zero freight costs, and often if the value isn't too high I don't even get charged taxes (no duty on US made product). I'm lucky to be a 20 minute drive to the border and with NEXUS, no wait times crossing. Only once I had to return something to AE, so they gave me the return shipping label from the US address they shipped to, and I carried the box back to the US and dropped it off at my depot again...easy. I realize I'm lucky being so close to the border though...not true for everyone obviously.

    I wasn't as lucky. I paid the $45 shipping, plus tax of the shoes and the brokerage fee charged by Fedex.

    I plan to do the same thing on my next purchase.

    I am in Calgary, no option to hit up a PO box in the US.

    I guess I will just keep my fingers crossed for only a minor flaw and no charges on delivery.

    Sorry bro. It was at least a year ago so I wasn't sure. I think I paid around $30-40.

    I'm thinking about purchasing a pair of Snuff Suede Amok seconds. Is there anyway to tell if the version I get was manufactured before or after they fixed the squeaking problem? I'm not sure I can discern whether they squeak or not from just walking on carpet.

    Banff slippers arrived today. These are definitely the nicest slippers I've worn. Could easily make a quick trip to the market in them without catching any dirty looks. Sizing is spot on. Only thing I'd change is to make the heel of the shoe about 1/4" to 1/2" taller.

    A Steal at $59.

    Where would one acquire such slippers for $60?
