My burgundy Patriot seconds arrived!
No idea what the flaw is, came with out a seconds stamp and even have cordovan shoe bags. What a steal at $325 and the wheeled edge on the Patriot is a nice touch. They are a bit tight on the instep but feel good everywhere else right out of the box. I suspect they will stretch a little along with the cork settling and they should be a perfect fit.
Nice score. I think I'm just as jealous as the bags.
