Allen Edmonds has a solid deal going on for their McAllisters. These are 1sts that are going for 245.00 (msrp:395)

Various colors (black, dark chili, oxblood, walnut)
Tons of sizes and widths
Free shipping
Free returns

While I know some don't think AE quality remains top notch, this pricing for McAllisters (anything sub 250) is always warmly received.

Enjoy

Their sale was so underwhelming this year

AE raised all their prices again. They went to 425 for the main shoes like park 5th Ave etc then went back to 395 after people saw the decrease in quality. Now they are back up to 425 and 445 for boots.

I've never owned these shoes but I will say, if you wear dress shoes even remotely often, invest a few hundred in a good pair. If you properly take care of them they will last forever, look amazing, and fit like a dream after they're broken in and mold to your feet. Much better than spending $50 every year on a low quality pair.

Many of their other popular styles are on sale for a similar price as well. For example, Fifth Aves are also $245

edit: a word

What dress shoes do you wear then? To me AEs are the best shoes to get into for quality and budget. I know there are Aldens or Carminas which are a step above AEs.

A quick word to the wise: if this is your first dress shoe purchase, get a simple cap toe or plain toe Oxford instead. It'll be a more versatile shoe.

I'd say skip the cap toe as a first--they're boring. I prefer the Carlyle in both fit and appearance. I have McAllisters in merlot (discontinued) and they go with almost everything. As to buying anything from AE, I have stopped since the company was last purchased. Quality has gone down significantly. If you buy online, I recommend ordering two of the same pairs of shoes to keep the better ones and to verify they match in color and cut (length of cap toe, vamp, etc.). Also, if you have a high instep, it's best to avoid the 65 last.

If you need to interview. Then black cap toe like a Hopkinson or fifth ave or park ave. The first one for me i get a half size smaller than the last two.

Buy one pair. Make it brown, strand or McAllister. Very versatile, use with virtually any pair of pants except black.

If you can't afford this sale then consider dabondo1 on eBay and offer 70% of asking. I got 3 new pairs from him for the price of one.

Now I just need to dump an brand new pair of blk park avenue size 9 3e. Since I missed the exchange window with Allen Edmonds. Any resale sites better than the other for a rare sale (I am a buyer not a seller).

I have been an AE shoe wearer for over 15 years. I wear dress shoes five days a week. In my experience I get a hole in the sole on the newer AEs in much less time than in years past. Fortunately the re-crafting, while not cheap, is very good. Has anyone else had problems with the soles not holding up? When they re-cfrafted one of my pairs they offered me v-tread tap sole at no extra cost. Those have held up well but I really prefer the look of leather soles.

The best lasting pair of shoes I ever had was a Peal and Co. (Books Brothers) They are still going strong after 15 years and when I bought them they were $250 on super clearance. I wish I knew what made them so much better.

What other brands should I be considering if I want to keep my purchase under $400 (on sale)? Anyone have experience with Beckett Simonon.

I have always been an Allen Edmonds loyal consumer. I have about 15 pair of shoes. However, their prices have gotten so outlandish that I can no longer justify purchasing their products. Their quality does not warrant their new pricing. For these prices I might as well purchase Alden shoes which are far superior. The price on this slick deal, while good, should really be their everyday price. $250-$350 should be the range for Allen Edmonds. Cordovan shoes should be around $500.

Peal and Co shoes are made by Crockett and Jones which is prominently all I own. In general, I've found European shoe makers offer more stylish shoes with better craftsmanship than American makers. You could look into Meermin, J. Fitzpatrick, Carmina, C&J, and Trickers to name a few makers.

Excellent shoes, even better prices. I have 4 pairs and will be getting more. The cons are the wait and no widths if that is what you need.

Is there any discernable benefit of these vs the Allen Edmonds models that were $159 last week?
