It's obvious now that OP has done little to no research.
As I said, given your spec of $100-$300 price point, stick with your AE seconds or Meet mind. Even those made in India Cole Hanns at a discount ain't that bad either.
Do realize anything below most accessible resole or recraft costs is basically throwaway prices as new pairs could be bought at the resole cost. The resole cost ranges from $80s to $150s at local cobblers.
Or you could continue to bid for brand new...
