    Shoebuy is great because you can stack so...a typical case looks like this..

    Link to Shoebuy site via Bank of America Add It Up gets you 10% back (or you can use other cashback sites)

    Park Aves : $325

    A ) 20% off coupon (these come out very frequently and sometimes there is a 25% off coupon) = $65
    B) 10% off for first time customers or repeat customers within 90 days I believe = $26
    C) 10% cashback = $23.40 ($234 *10%) = $23.40


    final price = $325 - $65 - $26 -$23.40 = $210.60

    shipped.

    Any thoughts on the AE Malvern in suede? I'm on the fence about them, but I definitely want a pair of chukka boots.

    What do you guys do in terms of shoe care? I was going to get the condition/cleaner and then either the shoe cream or the shoe polish - which do you guys recommend?

    You really need a combination of all 3. Conditioner for clean up, and alternate polishing to replenish the luster of the shoe, and cream to feed the leather and keep it fresh.

    Correction on the upcoming Allen Edmonds sale, SA informed me it would be 15% off everything, custom orders excluded. I might pick up 2 pairs now. Didn't like how the suede Malvern looked on my feet. Might go with Kenilworth, Verona, or McAllister. Ow, the agony :D

    not really. The lombard seems to perpetually be on sale. If you like it, get it, but I wouldn't worry that its gonna go up in a week either.

    I have a width sizing question about the Player's shoe. I have the Strands in 8,which fit me perfectly. I also have the park ave in same size, and they're slightly too narrow in the toe. I recently bought the players shoe from Nordstroms in 8d, but the toe on the left shoe is way too tight! I thought these shoes were all on the same last, but the Players is obviously much more narrow. Nordstroms has this shoe in EEE width, and I was wondering how much wider this width is from the D. Any advice would be appreciated!

    players shoe is on a different last, but can't remember which now. Its definitely a narrower shoe.

    I would not go from a D to an EEE. That is a big difference. Maybe go up to an 8.5D?

    Each shoes may fit differently, even if on the same last. The Strand and Park Ave are also on the same last, but as you mentioned both of those shoes fit you slightly differently. The Player's Shoe is on the 2 last, which runs narrow. If you have the option to try it on first, that's the way to go. If Nordstroms has the EEE width in stock locally, go try it on.
