    The Delrays are $250 actually :)

    I suppose it is just a personal choice, but i receive excellent service from my SA's at my local store, so i shop with them.

    Plenty of times, i have received discounts on shoes when there was no sale, aside from getting freebies from time to time.

    $275 when you factor in sales tax in a town with 10% sales tax like Chicago. I guess it comes down to the fact that I get that same customer service by calling AE directly, regardless of whether I purchased the shoes at Nordstrom or Amazon. AE has always done right by me, which is why I'm loyal to the brand. Would I pay a few extra bucks to help out the local store, sure. An extra $75 on a shoe I can get for $200 elsewhere? No.

    I`m going to an AE store later this week to get some fifth avenues. If the sizing isn`t so finicky, I would have bought them online :/

    I haven't bought a pair of AE since my early days on SF. I was walking pass their store and I saw their sale sign. So I went in and tried on some shoes. The Dalton and Neumok (red) really caught my eyes.

    I end up buying the tan (walnut?) Dalton. Now if I think about it, I don't remember the last time I bought a pair of shoes in store. I will snap some pics later.

    Black shoes don't usually get much love on SF, but I saphired my PAs tonight, and I have to say that nothing really shines up like a black shoe. Pics with and without flash

    Very nice shine. Agreed, we are a little preoccupied with our browns and burgundys on here, but gotta love the simple sophisticated style of a black Park Ave.
    I have a pair of black calf Hale that should see more action as they have a similar look.

    I'm having a hard time deciding between the Delray and the Le Salle. Both are so similar. The Delray model is usually priced higher, but has a steeper discount for the sale, so they both come out to the same. Does anyone have any opinions one way or the other?

    Agreed, awhile back someone posted a picture of it with his AE walnut shoes, looks like a perfect match. I have been considering getting one too.

    I think we've discussed this a few times on the forum. I own both the Delrays and the LaSalle. I agree that the pictures make them look very similar, and probably most casual onlookers wouldn't notice huge differences.

    That said, I like the Delrays a good bit more. The lines/stitching seem better for the Delrays. I made a post with pics of both a few months back, I'll see if I can dig it up.

    Overall, I prefer the Delrays and would pick them before the LaSalle every time unless the LaSalles were significantly cheaper (which is not the case with the current sale).
