How deep is the scuff?  If it's on the surface it may just take a little elbow grease with saddle soap or AE's conditioner cleaner... a nominal investment for a $385 shoe that only cost you $199. The tradeoff with Factory 2nds is you never know what the imperfection will be.  AE also charges a $10 restocking fee for all returned 2nds, which is perfectly fair considering if you do return them to get a different pair they will have paid to ship shoes to you 3 times

 I think your point is so incredibly unsubstantiated that if you actually took the time to read the press release they made it very clear that the claim you just made is exactly the opposite of AE's strategy and entire business model for that matter. If you're going to claim this, where are you getting your information?  Unless you're on the board, I doubt your claims have any real validity.  Personally, I hate to see someone slander an american company like you are. AE's...
