    Its on there already and i can add it to my cart. So whats wrong with it?

    There used to be text on the product page indicating a ship date of September 15th or thereabouts.

    Given that the text is no longer there I'm presuming they underpromised and overdelivered, and the boots are now available.

    $350 is a good deal? I thought that was pretty pricey... I'm used to paying more like $150 or 200, but if no other shoemaker makes something like the Bayfield I'll settle for it.

    I bought the maroon for $60 new and the black for $95 new, wore once and sold for $140 and $155 each. I have not paid retail for shoes in 20 years.

    Walk by the downtown AE store daily on the way to the gym. None yet.

    Who has them? Post pics.

    I was going to buy a pair of Aldens, but these boots = the awesome.

    Buy the Aldens.

    I should. I need some new monks. I like the chukkas too, but they are not very sleek.

    I've been happy with my AE shoes. I have the Del Rays and the Van Ness Oxfords.

    The Bayfields are a nice boot. Undecided : - (

    I picked up a pair of these in brown at Macy's in Herald Square, NYC today. Through tomorrow (I think) they've got a big 20% off everything deal going on.

    Somehow I got a coupon/card in the mail about it, but when I was looking at the boots, the salesman just offered the discount - great way to grab these beauties (or any AE) for less than retail.

    If you're willing, you can always sign up for the store credit card for 15% additional off, but that's if you're brave and aren't worried about your FICO.

    Meh, you can get Alden for not much more. These seem a bit dull to me.

    I think they stack up well with any Alden boot...and are even more sleek than most.

    One think I dont like about these boots in the sole. Looks kind of work bootish

    I see they have improved a bit with the product shots. That boot doesn't look half bad.

    Saw it in person yesterday. My opinion of it improved muchly. Worth considering.

    Just got them yesterday from Shoe Bank. Probably better with jeans than dress clothes, but all in all I'm happy with the purchase. I just wouldn't feel right trudging through snow in something that cost more than $300.
