I've ordered three AE styles in the past week. Nomad Chucka, Nomad tan pebble penny loafer and Black Houston Travel Penny. All were at or less than half price. Main reason for these is that they all have removable cushion inserts and are available in wide widths which I must have to accomodate a pretty serious orthotic. I've moved from Alden to AE over the past three years in search of better quality shoes which accommodate the orthotics and have finally found a brand and solution that works. While these may not be the best shoes in the world, they fit, look nice and are affordable in quantities that I need to replace a WHOLE bunch of others.
