    I'm a 13D Brannock and 12.5D Barrie. 13D in the AE MacNeil and Dundee. I went into a store to get sized for a Clifton and ended up with 12EEE. Odd size but they fit nicely.

    Wow. That is odd. I guess I can stop by Nordstrom this weekend.

    Until you like the shoes sent to you and dont send them back. Shoes only come into my household they do not leave.

    This reminds me of Thunderdome...2 men enter, 1 man leaves...

    I almost ordered some Galways recently from BB to confirm sizing but had the exact fear; that if they entered my house they would not leave

    So I read back a few pages and couldn't find a summary of the new MTO pricing. I know they would honor the clearance pricing but no more. What about sale pricing? Just curious with the Anniversary sale coming up and the hankering for some Franciscans.

    Pricing is typically associated the with cost of the upper. We do not know if they will acknowledge sale prices yet on MTOs. They did in the fall with the RDA sale, but things have changed a little since then. Time will be the tell here n

    Allison told me that SALE prices would be honored, but not clearance.

    I think you did the right thing. There's not guarantee the strands will be on sale this spring. You could have waited all the way until the RDA sale, but that's a whole half year away!

    Oh, good point. I don't remember all their sales and the intricacies of each. I just know they are roughly Sept and March. Roughly.

    But I did enjoy the nice discount on my two last Shell MTOs.
