    The price was unbelievable! You have to take them for a spin. They took less than a day to break in. Super light for gyw shoes and very flexible. I would have been very disappointed if I missed out on these. It looks like they are gone forever.

      Yep BB and Alden no longer have a relationship from what I’ve heard and stock is completely gone

      I had no plans on picking them up but I couldn’t pass it up and went for it. I’ve been wearing them around the house and they are great

      Did you go TTS or size down? I’ve got a little heel slippage but think it will go away when the soles break in

        I initially bought half size down. After a week of not shipping, I got an email saying that they were out of stock in that size. They offered another 10% off on any other size. I went tts. I had pretty bad heal slip on my left side which was solved with a tongue pad. Now they are great! I could probably remove the tongue pad now that the soles have softened up from walking.

              Nice! Just don't get any drops of 24:1 chloroform:iso-amyl alcohol on them like I did on a pair of nubuck shoes.

                Carmina chukkas

                  Doing some science wearing my Frye "Paul Bal" suede captoes again. Really digging these oxfords. The unfinished leather of the welt/sole/heel stack and washed/waxed suede really dress it down which works with my style. They're Goodyear welted, very comfy, and a steal at $53 during the last Nordstrom Rack's clearance.

                    [MENTION=19310]Banks[/MENTION] - You have a ton of great shoes. Jealous of those Carmina Chukkas. I have started looking for some chukkas but if I get into the Carmina boot price range, I know I will end up with some C&J Islay's.

                      Thanks. I think lots of us tend to fall into the watch crowd or the shoe crowd. I'm obviously in the latter. Count wise I don't have a ton (relative term I suppose), though I try to aim for quality. Lots have been picked up on deep sale/close out. That said, these Carmina's were unfortunately only 10% off MSRP. Still worth it to me though as they get a ton of wear, both casually and at the office.

                      You've mentioned the Islay boots before. Time to bite the bullet! I can't recall ever seeing a pic of those where they don't look awesome.

                        This has given me motivation to save for them. Sounds terrible but the easiest way for me to save is take cash out of the bank account. I am 40% of the way there currently...just need to ignore the urge to buy cheaper things....

                          Yes, those Carmina Chukkas are beautiful. I really don't have a need for any more Chukka boots, or any shoes at all--but those are making me wish I didn't buy the AE Chukkas I have. Of course, the Carmina version is four times more than what I paid for the AE Nomad on clearance sale.

                          But really beautiful, [MENTION=19310]Banks[/MENTION].
                          WHY ARE THE GUYS IN SUITS HERE? HAS SOMETHING GONE WRONG?

                            Carlos Santos. Keep thinking one of these days will be the last for flannel but the 40-degree days just continue.
