I saw a pair of Allen Edmonds (Clifton) on sale at Nordstroms on sale for $230 (from $325). Does that seem like a good deal? I thought it was maybe so-so, as it was only about a 30% markdown.

Opinions?

It's not horrible, but you could do better at STP or Grapevinehill.

Give the Allen Edmonds shoe bank a call, they carry discontinued models there for $129+shipping.

this.

[email protected] or 262-241-4266... especially if you're a tricky size. I just today received some brown Byrons and they are easily the best-fitting most comfortable shoes I've ever owned, especially for $129 plus eight bucks UPS. I feel like I got away with something.

Just ask them to email you a closeout/seconds list of what they have in your size.

Does this work for popular sizes like 9.5D (and decent models)?

Yep, just give them your size and what you're looking for in terms of styling, and they'll give you a list of what they have in stock.
