Are you near an AE store? I would recommend going to an AE store and get fitted by someone. Nordstrom's SA may not be knowledgeable about different AE lasts and how AE shoes may fit. Plus, AE stores should carry various width sizes. If this is your first AE pair, make sure you get the right size. Black Friday maybe great but I've seen the Park Aves on sale through out the year. Don't rush yourself just to get the sale and end up with a pair of ill-fitted shoes.
