    How high is your instep? If you have flat feet you could probably go down a width. I wouldn't be able to because I can't close balmorals even when they are the correct width!

    Just picked up a pair of barely worn Park Avenues in black off of Ebay for $180. Fit like a glove. Score :slayer:

    Got a photocopy of my credit card receipt for my daltons :)

    Somehow they managed to charge me the full ~10% chicago sales tax (mail order stuff usually just gets IL sales tax) but the price still kicked ass for a pair of brand new boots and shoe trees shipped straight to me.

    My instep is fairly average I suppose. My 9.5C Strands are spot on (I measure 9.5C on a Brannock device) for me. I'm wondering if I should go down a 1/2 size...

    Hm, when did you order yours? I ordered mine this morning (~4am east) and it still hasn't been charged on my card.

    Are you saying it all happened in my head? [​IMG] The Ohio outlet opened at 10pm last night.

    I heard they are narrow. These are some of the best looking penny loafers I've been able to find under $100 (currently on sale)

    They are a little bit narrower than my Park or Fifth Avenues but that's also the nature of the shoe. I still bought the same size though since I normally wear them without socks.

    I ordered mine on Wednesday, and it still hasn't hit my card.

    I tried these on in the store today. Sized down a half size and they fit awesome. Felt so comfortable too, absolutely amazing. The maracca suede color is not nearly as tan in person as it appears on the website, much darker but not in a brown sort of way. Seriously these things felt so nice, absolutely can't wait to get them in (had ordered online, but they were unable to pull up the order and cancel it so I could just buy then in store).

    How does the build on the Amoks feel? Since the pricepoint is lower, I was worried they cut corners. It's interesting how the more recent AE prices seem all over (eg. Kenilworth less than most of their standard shoes, etc) when it seemed pretty standard across the board in the past.

    Also, does it look sleek in person? On the website, it looks much sleeker than most chukkas usually are. Seems like a good deal.

    Please post some real world pics of the Amok if you get a chance. I'm really intrigued. I have a pair of the Alden unlined Chukka in tan (on the sleek leydon last) but really want to add a pair in dark brown. However, the idea of spending another $400+ doesn't seem all that appealing. I'd never seen the amok before you guys referenced it here. Looks like a great choice.

    The deal on the seconds was one I couldnt pass up. I ended up dealing with both the Maine store and the Ohio store and ordered a shoe from each. I ordered the Fifth Streets in Brown and the also a pair of the Daltons. I am excited! Thank you for posting such great deals!

    Both stores are class acts.

    Was it just me, or did the AE website crash for a bit yesterday?

    They're nice looking boots. I'm tempted to get a pair, though the full sized increments at half sizing (8.5, 9.5, etc) makes me uncertain that they'd fit.

    I would jump on these chukkas, but I only see them in D width online. Are there no wide sizes?

    Unfortunately I won't be able to get pictures of the Amok until after the sale is over, but I have no problem posting some when they arrive.

    Amok boots or Winthrop loafers.... It's a tough one since boots are so popular now...

    Also, has anyone been able to find a nice pair of rubber soled dress shoes on sale?
