My first AE purchase. Can I be let into the club now?? =)
^ Congratz. 2 beautiful shoes to start your collection.
Just received my strands directly from AE. A bit disappointed considering "usage" of the creases and sole:
Clearly these were slightly used and/or returned. Would you guys make a fuss about this? On the other hand those creases and scratches are going to be there after I wear them anyways...just enjoy em?
Enjoy them. That looks like lest than a day's wear.
ETA: be sure to get some shoe trees.
Enjoy - they look great!
They look great! I'm waiting for my Strands in the mail right now.
What size are those?
Sorry, I may have missed it but are these supposed to be new shoes or irregulars (i.e. full price or discounted)?
Congrats on the purchase. You made two excellent choices that will last you for years!
directly from AE price matched with nordstrom's $220. My expectations are 1st/brand new
Here's a pic of the cognac Soho's I recently purchased on eBay. They were worn maybe once before. I felt it was a great deal for a shoe that I LOVE!
8.5 d ordered from Nordstrom via the sale price. Strands fit perfect the PA's feel a tad wider. I guess thats the last thing you guys always talk about. Im just learning about real shoes moving over from Cole Haans
HELL YEAH I'd make a fuss! If you didn't buy Seconds, why should they look like you did? Send them back. Now.
This might merit a note to customer service, but honestly...try them on and if they fit comfortably, I'd live with it vs. waiting for another "new" pair to arrive. They look like someone tried them on for a couple of hours and sent them back. I highly doubt the foot beds are even broken in with that little bit of wear.
Both the Strands and PAs are on the same last, so they should (in theory) fit the same.
This is true, although it's not the first time I've seen someone comment that their PAs and Strands fit differently.
