    Did you end up getting something?
    I'm looking for a recommendation myself.

    Both are on clearance on the AE site right now. (Only chocolate suede for Amok). Free shipping. Or are available colors not what you want?

    I thought the sale didn't start until Friday? Did you have to ask to get the sale price?

    I did. I haven't received them yet, but I bought a pair of Totes stretch geometric loafer overshoes for $22 after shipping and tax. The Swims look great but are way to expensive for how infrequently I plan to wear them. Only time will if the Totes strip my finish. For the most parer the reviews are great. I'll let you know after I wear them.

    My first day in AE in my Jeffersons and the right shoe is squeaking. Is that likely to go away?
    I searched and there were conflicting reports...

    Sporting my McAllisters today. I really like the wingtip style and all, but for some reason I'm not a huge fan of the overall shape of the shoe compared to some of my other pairs of AE balmorals. I mean, they fit me fine (I really don't have trouble with different lasts not fitting me right usually), but overall they don't look/feel very sleek or shapely. Oh well.

    They look pretty sleek to me, but I'm wearing a pair of Alden LWBs on the Barrie last and they make a pair of firefighter's boots look sleek by comparison.

    Are the Walnut Strands on sale? If so, what price?

    Haha. Yeah I think it's more when viewed from the side. I feel like the instep is higher than some of the other models, then abruptly flattens out at the toes. Hard to describe, but there's just a different shape to them than I was picturing originally. They're still nice and perfectly fine, just me being picky.

    Quick shot of my blue neumoks I'm wearing at my internship today. Quick shot because I don't want to be seen taking pictures of my feet!

    Nice, but can I suggest that you wear a solid color sock and denim with a darker rinse with those? As it is there is something Pippy Longstocking-ish about your 'fit.
