    My FB feed had a link via a 3rd party to what appeared to be the Allen Edmonds online store with amazing sale prices.

    http://www.allenedmondsstore.online/

    Obviously too good to be true.

    The "About Us" page is amusing:

    "If something sounds too good to be true, it probably is!" Nuff said. :(

    Probably a fake site. If you go to the contact page the email address is
    Email: [email protected]
    Plug that email in google search and you will see a number of shoe sites with that email address.

    Highlighted text in contrary to 10 years claim indicates it's most likely a skam selling knock-offs.

    Further confirmation that this site is not associated with Allen Edmonds. I sent a note to the customer care at the real Allen Edmonds and got this reply :

    Hello:

    Thank you for making us aware of this situation, we have forwarded this to the appropriate parties to be addressed. This is not an authorized Allen Edmonds retailer and we do not recommend placing an order through this website. If you have placed an order, we would recommend contacting your financial institution as soon as possible.

    Best regards

    Once again Facebook has shown itself worse than just being utterly useless. It’s a vehicle for fraud.

    I replied to the online link they had to ask about widths. Needless to say, they have not responded. When you try to order there is no width determination on the size link.
