    Deal was for 35% off, and it wasn't for signing up or anything. Total for me was $143 w/ tax + no S/H. Mind is still blown by this.

      good looking out dude, i just bought the tan and black pairs. the only thing stopping me from buying the brown too was the fact that i have the wolverine 744 that are just too similar to justify another boot lol

          This is definitely a good idea. Also, you should make sure your cobbler knows how to deal with the oiled sole. It doesn't take well to the cement they typically use, so if he doesn't know what he's doing the rubber will peel off easily.

            Anyone that got the black or tan - mind explaining your thinking? I honestly tried to talk myself into those colors and failed

              Tan has kinda a "streetwear" look to me? Or maybe western? Depends on what you're going for I guess. Black well... it's a black boot. Might be good for kicking people in the head or something. I unno.

                Here's a weird piece of trivia: not all "#8" colors are the same. AE's burgundy shell is the true #8 as it comes from Horween, while Alden dyes their #8 shoes to a purple/eggplant hue.

                These 1ks are burgundy (so in other words it won't look like Alden's #8), and I think it's a fantastic colorway for this boot. Rust is also very nice.

                  Thanks for this... I'm hoping it's a gorgeous burgundy that doesn't look like I'm wearing eggplants when I go out. I was super super tempted (still am) to either change the order to Brown or order Brown in addition to the Cordovan color (rust no longer available). But that's just silly... really silly...

                      Mine was $135.20. I'm guessing there's no tax where I'm at but you did get hit with it. My order was strange. I never got an email confirmation and it's still not showing on my order history page. I had to call them and the guy emailed me a scan of my receipt. Hopefully everything goes through ok. I ordered the Cordovan in a size 8.5 since everything I read said to order at least 1/2 size down.

                        Yes they run large by a full size. I was saving up for a pair of Alden indys this fall but screw that! For a similarly handsome casual boot this deal is unheard of. Great tip!

                          Is it a full size or half size? I normally wear 9 but ordered 8.5.

                            Based on my experience with this boot I tried both an 11 and a 10.5. I wear an 11 in ae neumok, 10.5 in j crew mcallisters,12.5 in Nike frees running shoes, 11.5 in most non sneaker shoes, a 12 in most sneakers. On wolverines,The 11 did not fit, heel slipped like crazy. I then tried the 10.5. Heel still slipped a bit when walking around particularly noticeably when going up or down stairs. Figured if they felt at all loose new then after break in they'd really be problematic.

                              Hard to quantify that haha. I ordered .5 down from my AE size, which is an 11 (5 Last - strand, park ave, mccallister, etc). I had read this around the internet with some surety. could be wrong, never know. also i just ordered that stupid Gilt / Onward Reserve sale. Snagged the filson original brief for 100. not sure if i am crushing or getting crushed today.

                              Edit: I wanted cordovan too but all out by the time I got around to this :-\ Rust it is!

                                Wow, I'm not even sure what I would do with these boots, but still I want them. Thanks a lot dappered!
