They are calf. But they do look like shell. Many people actually asked me if the were shells. My question ……. are they corrected grain ?I don’t think AE uses corrected grain(I could be wrong).They are Grayson in Merlot.The sizing on them are tricky. I went from 8D to 8.5B. Lol fits like glove.
My strands have most of what you have highlighted . Including one small burn mark !They are just a pair of shoes. Get over it and just wear them. AE is the cheapest goodyear welted shes you can possibly buy. During sale they are even cheaper.

Hate is a big word. But I don't like rmw, commodores or vegemite(tastes like $hit). And there is nothing great about commodores.Also you talked about " 5) High resale value " of a pair shoes.Commodores you drive out of a car yard and 10 seconds later reverse it back to the yard and car will depreciate 10% of its original price.Worst car to have and worst resale value.
Some of my shoes are stored 1 shoe in bag and another one without the bag inside shoe box.

There was a lot of white wax dusts(I mean a lots and lots - it looked *ucked and unwearable). I had to spend 5 minutes brushing them off.This happens to my shells only and if the shoes are unworn for over a month or so.
