1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I am really really really in love with the idea of doing a First Avenue in Oxblood.

    Imagine this:

    I'll hold out for Black Friday and see whether the First Avenue is available in Oxblood by then...

    Burgundy shell is so much easier to get. I prefer dark brown shell.

    Curious too. B. Nelson is definitely more expensive.

    Eh. I would have worded it differently. They weren't unwearable if you were willing to take more of a discount on them to keep them.

    Yeah, I wasn't clear in my initial email. I subsequently explained that the discount would be so I could pay a local cobbler to make them such that they wouldn't fall apart.

    Hello everyone!! This is my First Post and I have to say I am pretty excited. I have looked on this thread quite a few times just to read up on some comments from other AE Connoisseurs, but I think with the most recent addition of the oxblood option to the AE Catalog has pushed my excitement over the edge and I just had to get involved.

    I am getting ready to pick up my 10EEE oxblood Strands here in Atlanta which I cannot wait to get into my collection. I have been really interested to see how different the Oxblood Strands will look next to my Merlot Mcallisters, and how well of a job AE has done in making sure that there is enough of a difference for the two shoes to be distinguishable.

    Hopefully this will be my first post of many!

    I just checked my amex and I have the offer for $50 off $200.

    Anyone going to try using this on a shoebank purchase? The offer says in-store or online at allen edmonds and doesn't mention the shoebank...but my previous credit card bills just state "allen edmonds", so...

    I think this will work. Another option would be to buy a $200 gift card. I use these amex offers on gift cards all the time.

    Yes, the Shoebank is a retail location.

    Is this a one time deal -or- do you get $50 off for every charge over $200? If the latter, I can rack up some savings!

    I had the same question. I called AMEX and they told me it's a one time deal.

    Just picked up these Park Avenues in Walnut Cloud from their South Coast Plaza store. Excellent service. Already a little beat up as I've worn them a lot.

    Here's what I got from my SA regarding the First Avenue's 201 last (description below from the AE design team):

    “The 201 last is the newest last introduction from the Product Development team. This last has a higher cone, providing more room for a higher instep and contemporary shelf appeal. The toe down has fuller forefoot width for more comfort and slight chisel to the toe profile, providing a sleek looking aesthetic which complements our iconic 65 last.”

    Don't tend to take and share pics of my AE collection but felt like it today with my not new but recently polished black fifth street boots - a bit underrated on the forum but love them!

    Also nice shot of the fifth steet boots a few posts above!
