    I see the Amoks are currently down to $147. Can anyone comment on sizing compared to the 5-last or 8-last, as well as any overall opinions about the shoe? thanks

    Yep. Found it here. http://menfashionadvice.com/2012/al...strands-at-nordstrom-update-to-caveat-emptor/

    I view selling seconds to the Rack as fine. It's not the same as selling a differently manufactured shoes.

    As for the earlier about whether seconds sold the Rack are marked as seconds, I wonder the same. AE marks their own; seems like it would be easy to do the same for Rack.

    I did correct myself.. any Magnanni shoe is quality, especially the leather soled Mateo's i found. I was just saying that the majority of the Magnanni's they have at the Rack are clearly dated, and typically rubber soled.

    In addition to your comments about AE, I too saw a brown suede neumora (it was hideous) and also saw a brown suede fifth street boot. In addition, lots of double soled bluchers and their "ae" line with the rubber sole.

    Did anyone get an invite to meat Paul Grangaard at your local AE store? I'm not sure if he is going to multiple places, but I received an invite for a meet and greet at the State St. store in Boston. Feb 5th, 5-7pm.

    These are Sanfords, no? Or some other captoe blucher.

    All seconds are marked by AE at the factory with the branded shoe mark on the sole. The seconds found at the Rack are no exception.

    I noticed that as well... it could be an older designed Sanford as well. If memory serves me correction, some AE models have kept their name but have undergone a decent amount of transformations throughout the years.

    You are right about that as well. Looking back through their archives will reveal shoes with the same name, but very different appearances.

    It doesn't appear to be burnished, so I'll say the Colton. I have the shoe in that color.

    You are correct, my mistake. Strands have 6 eyelets, these have 5. They are Sanfords.

    Between the detail on the toe cap, the five eyelets and the apparent lack of burnishing, I'd have to agree with your guess. It looks like the Colton.

    Now, when I ordered them, I really thought these Jingle Bell Moks were too holiday-oriented to last past Christmas day, but with the subtleness of the green (it looks rather grey), I've found they work just fine with jeans even a month later.

    Anyone have any shell Daltons? I have a pair coming my way. Wonder if you have any pics, or thoughts on the fit and how they've held up.

    Which ones are on the way? Walnut or burgundy? I have both. My walnut shells are unlined and about eight months old. The burgundy are lined and I've only had them two months and they have only a few wears. The walnut shells have been treated with Venetian Shoe Cream and Saphir Reno. The burgundy have only seen Reno.

    Don't expect these AE shells to shine like say, Alden shell. I don't particularly like really shiny shoes/boots so I'm happy with them. The walnut particularly, have almost a matte look.

    Enjoy your Daltons. They are my favorite AEs.

    Edit: as far as fit --- for me, they fit pretty much TTS. I actually like the 1 (511) last a lot.

    Those are gorgeous, man. I really wish AE would crank out some more walnut shell options.
