Does a "W" on the sole of AE's mean seconds, or that they were returned?

A seller on ebay swears it means a return only, I swore it meant they were seconds confused.gif

It's all consumer psychology! The limited edition dimension of some of these shoes makes you want to buy before they are all gone. It definitely is working though... I am checking their site once every hour waiting for them to release the doublemonks and the other new models ffffuuuu.gif

There are plenty of AE seconds being bought, so someone should be able to answer this definitively. I know there are such things as third quality AE shoes, so be sure you are not buying those...

I purchased 3 pairs of "seconds" recently and none have a W.

Can you comment on the differences between the AE conditioner? I have also been contemplating the Saphir Renovateur.

Saphir is MUCH thicker and yields a bit higher gloss in my experience (far from glossy - just saying relative to the AE conditioner).

I have used both with great results. If I just need to get some moisture in the leather, the AE product is great and that's what I use. For specific shine-ups that also require some conditioning, I may choose the Saphir.

The only shoe I use exclusively Saphir on is my cordovan Leeds.

My results match this as well.

Also Venetian Shoe Cream is good stuff and a bit of a trade secret. I actually prefer it for my shell leathers as it can shine to a higher sheen than Saphir Reno when I don't plan on putting a wax polish over it, (which is almost never, maybe once a year for shell cordovan). In other words, the shell looks a bit nicer when conditioning and buffing with the Venetian versus the Reno.

A "shoe" marking (sometimes appears as a slash) means seconds.  A "W" (by the way - these are marked both on the sole of the shoe as well as on the inside of the upper) means they were "worn" and returned.  It is possible to get a pair that both are seconds and worn, in other words, they have both the slash mark as well as a "W."

Cross post from the Official PSA thread:

Just spoke to a SA at my local AE outlet (Riverhead) and this is what I gleaned they have in stock from my conversation:

Swims ($29)
M: Brown
L: Red, Orange, Black
XL: Brown

I did not ask about size small and they could have had more colors in M (No navy, my first choice) and XL. My first choice was brown, but they did not have any in Large.

I asked the SA to try and fit the swims over the displays he had (Size 9s) and he said it was a snug fit and a little tough to get on, and the large were easier to out on so along with the advice I received from above I went with the large in Red.

He also mentioned to me that the Randolphs in shell dropped today to $399.

Allan Edmunds are by far one of the most comfortable shoes. They are considered more classic that Ferragamo and also typically re do your shoes for 100 bucks! I recently been following them on http://stylefeed.com/#allen-edmonds/men.

They're gorgeous! 

Totally serious question--would you guys ride your bike wearing boots like that? I ask because I avoid my car whenever humanly possible.

They've recently been on sale at Nordstrom and Shoe Bank but now it looks like Amazon has the San Marco on sale for a little over $150 for select sizes and colors.

You can see what they have in stock here

I think those are so clunky, why would anyone want to wear those?

The San Marco is not my favorite shoe but the last in not clunky by any means.
