    Yes, it was the dark chocolate. As nice as the walnut looks, dark chocolate is much more versatile for me.

    I've got a pair of the Winthrops and like them. What did you hear that was negative?

    No luck with any of the shoes that I am interested in for this sale, but I hear there's another sale starting on Monday. 2 for $300 for some select styles.

    Trying to choose between a D or B width on the Fifth Street boot. I normally wear a 9.5C in the #5 last.

    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.
