Anyone has trouble with watermarks affecting lighter colored shoes ?

I'm talking about something as miniscule as a drop of water on the shoes. It creates a dark spot and a shiny halo around the shoe that I'm having difficulty buffing out, even with polish....

Any ideas?

Yep my Shaker Heights in Chili...one spot...I have not tackled trying to fix it yet...on a side note it seems I am the only person not knowing it was going to rain today and wore them- they got hit pretty good and not one spot this time

How so? Let me see if I can find a pic again.

 

OH I see what you're saying. I just noticed that. It would bother the heck out of me once I saw it in person. Thanks for the save! heh.

did you ask for lists from each of those outlets? All of AE's outlets pull from one inventory list of all AE seconds, so if you asked for it from each one then you got 3 copies of the same list.

Sorry, I thought I quoted the post. The "right price" was in reference to these Cordovan MacNeils...

As Bkotsko pointed out it's chrome tanned oil infused leather.

 

Here's what it looks like on the Bayfield: http://www.landsend.com/products/mens-allen-edmonds-bayfield-captoe-boots/id_260396

Are you sure that is CXL?

It says full grain leather.

This is natural chromexcel below:

Yeah, it's Brown CXL even those Lands End ones. They look awesome but I can only wear them with more tailored pants.

Assuming those are firsts, anywhere around $450-500 would probably be a good price? It looks like they've only been worn a few times. Considering they would be $595 new, anything under $500 is probably a good deal for you. If they are seconds, maybe somewhere between $350-$450. There's the seconds sale for $299 but it's such an insane deal, it's hard to use that as a benchmark in my opinion.
