    Very interesting. Now, I'm wondering if I want a Carson City in brown chromexcel with a mini lug sole.

    That's exactly what I'm thinking as well.

    I emailed Allison this morning about this. Waiting to hear back.

    I emailed with her and asked if I could get it for the advertised $197 price, she replied with a yes, and when she sent the order confirmation yesterday it shows the $197 price and the waived $125 MTO fee. So $197 delivered for a MTO boot, which I think will be a pretty hot make up by the way. :)

    Nope. $197 delivered in eight weeks.

    Holy crap man. You are the champion. Thanks a lot for telling us about this. I forgot about the SF promotion. I can now get my dream boot. Just have to figure out whether to go with 13C or 13D, whether to go with bourbon or chocolate, and whether to get a mini lug sole or dainite (if that's an option), or perhaps leather + v-tread (which I love on my BB strands). I think dainite might be the right choice.

    ETA: a bourbon Eagle County with a dainite sole would be dressy enough to wear with a blazer + tie, right?

    Or a recommendation for which flat laces to get? The black round ones on my burgundy shell Daltons is a little boring. BTW, I measured them last night and they're 46 inches.

    I'm interested in getting some brown waxed laces for my Long Branches as well as some olive drab colored ones. Any recommendations?

    So I stopped by an AE store today for fitting again on Park Aves. This time the 8D didn't feel as tight as it did from Nordstrom which is very strange. The SA had me try on the 7.5D as well but the 8D overall fit better and he himself recommended the 8D for me so this is what I'll be ordering. Now time to email the shoe bank to order my first pair of AEs.

    Just had my dreams crushed. [​IMG]

    Was thinking about a MTO of the Carson City in Chocolate Calf and mini Lug sole. Was told by Allison they could not customize the black friday only items but will honor the pricing for other black friday shoes

    darn!!

    All this talk of boots is making me seriously fear for the contents of my wallet . . .

    Does anyone know if AE has ever carried a monk strap boot? I find this Alden offering to be quite fetching:

    It was too good to be true and I was eagerly awaiting confirmation as well.

    The Carson is just a dalton with speedhooks, and you can get Daltons for 199. But if you think about it, 139 plus 125 for an eagle county MTO is pretty good for a unique boot you want (and if you get black eagle county and mini lug, basically a much cheaper way to get a bayfield)

    You could also get a Carson City and pay the MTO and have mini lug daltons for 325.
