Longtime lurker, first time poster. Just a small collection of AE shoes. Only one pair of firsts - Brown McAllisters from the recent sale. A few pairs of seconds, including some 6th Aves in Chestnut (akin to the Sanfords it seems) from NR, along with Neumok in grey (also from the Rack), wondering if they're an MTO or what, since the Neumok doesn't come in grey to my knowledge.
Anyway, was wondering what you all think of the pair of Walnut Strands I just snagged on eBay. They seem to be seconds (I see a faint seconds sole mark in one of the photos), and there appears to be a no warranty stamp (but I can't tell based on the photos - the seller says is a "no returns" mark). Anyway, based on the soles I'd guess they've been worn no more than once or twice. A few minor blemishes on the medallion area / toebox (I see a faint crease), but I think for $149 I got a decent deal.
What do you guys think?
It look like used shoes but as far as price is concern $149 is good deal. I think you need to do shoe polish and change the shoe lace for making brand new shoes.
