    Sale starts on the 15th and runs through the end of the month. Cardholders can buy now. SA told me there probably won't be many sizes left by the 15th. I think they have some other AE styles reduced as well, but I was there near closing time and only had time to grab the strands and go.

    [​IMG] .... just paid $40 more than that for a pair in Walnut.

    They probably didn't have them in my size in Walnut . . . I'll keep telling myself that. [​IMG]

    I saw some about a month ago ago my Nordstrom Rack for $179. Granted it's a crap shoot to see if they have them in your size, but it might be worth a shot if you have a rack near by.

    Most if not all AE's I've seen at the Rack have been seconds FWIW.

    It's the anniversary sale, so they should be first grade quality. I just didn't know about how walnut would fit in with my wardrobe.

    OP- Thanks for the heads up. I've had my eye on the strands for a while but this is going to finally let me pull the trigger.

    was looking to get a pair in burnished brown, but SA told me they only have them in black and walnut (he called them brown). Ended up putting a pair of walnut strands on hold.

    Even if you are not a Nordstrom card holder, they will hold a pair for you if you give them a credit card. Then, they charge you on the 15th and you can pick them up.

    I wear AE in 9.5 for Belair and Hinsdale, can anyone compare to Strand, think I will be OK in 9.5?

    Yes, they are are new stock, first quality with bags, fit assistance and a full selection of sizes. It's rare to see all of this for $199. I'm guessing that they will sell lots of them.

    Damn it... I've always wanted a pair of Walnut Strands but I can only buy one pair of shoes and the pair of shoes that I really need are a brown shoe somewhere more along the lines of the Fifth Avenue.

    Does Nordstrom carry EEE fittings?
