    they will only put on sale if its like a last size, but suede chukkas are a staple and always get picked up so its highly doubtful you will ever find any retailer putting them on sale.

    best bet is to check the seconds list that was suggested

    yeah. best bet is shoemart. $290 shipped. can't beat it really. you MAY get lucky on eBay, but doubtful. Really pissed i forgot about a pair of suede chukkas a few months back from some random store in MI selling off their old stock. brand new, in box $199.

    Thanks for the offer (and the special "act now" price). :nodding:

    Will probably pass on the PTB's for now but will definitely keep them in mind.

    My June email says $299 plus shipping. But I do remember ShoeMart had a 10% off deal in the Spring which could be used on seconds. Just remember to call and ask if the imperfections are noticeable. I have had good luck with their seconds but YMMV. Good luck.

    this is a good route to take for $300 chukkas. the 11.5 had an unlined chukka on the leydon last just a few months ago. reedo, get.your.chukkas. summers is almost over:D

    I'm sure this was already explained, but how does one get on the seconds list.

    it's really a crapshoot and honestly, i'm not sure how i got on it in the first place, but i am on the list, but i don't always get notified. case in point, i haven't gotten a list since february.

    i know the people sound somewhat irked and tell me "everything is on the email", but i just call with the model or two i am interested in. if they have them, great, if not, try again later. make sure whatever model you want you preface it with FD, their designation for seconds. so when i ordered my 975 longwings, i specifically asked for the FD975.
