    I ordered two $99 closeouts from J'ville (Lubbocks and Aberdeens), based on a list Kristle sent me. She did not indicate whether it was a list only of what's in that store or across the system.

    Just called Jeffersonville and confirmed the Long Branch is part of the close out list and already sold out in 12D.

    Does this have the wedge sole? Or can you order MTO without the wedge?

    OK, so ulta-newb here, especially with MTO. What is a mini-lug sole? Or a lug-sole, even? Or a flat sole (or welt..)? And anything else I need to know, especially if I'm going to MTO these things for this great deal!

    Ah ok sorry. Well, all these options have been covered, but I know this forum search is ponderous.

    Check out this fall style guide. There's an image of every sole they offer towards the back:

    http://issuu.com/allenedmonds/docs/ae_spring_digest_web_lr

    The edge is the wooden rim the sole is attached to. The welt is a thin leather strip that connects it to the upper. Flat means it's inside the shoe. Reverse means it's outside. Take a look at the McNeil or Leeds, that's reverse. The park ave, strand, etc are flat. Some claim reverse is more weather proof. I'm skeptical. Flat is dressier than reverse.

    When you call Allison, she can explain your options in greater detail.

    Go to the AE web site and play around with the custom shoe web app. You'll get a feel for how things will go. But you'll have way more options thru Allison...

    meh......in the end, I just bought a merlot belt for 29.99.

    no shoes for me this black friday.

    what I really what is an MTO Haight. Maybe I can get Allison to honor the sale price for a merlot calfskin version.

    Any recommendations on products for spit shinning the cap area of burnished walnut shoes or plain walnut? Just an FYI saphir products are out of my comfort range for price. Thanks in advance!

    What's the sizing advice on the Eagle County on the 222 last? I'm a 9D in the 1-511 last Dalton, and 8.5D/E in the 5-65 last.
