Picked up a pair of factory second Rutledges from the shoe bank. $322. Defects are very minor and do not bother me at all. A bit of discoloration on the inside of the left shoe (using Saphir wax seems to be helping) and some "imperfect" leather on the toe of the right shoe. I think the shoe is pretty boss- its comfy, color is absolutely AMAZING, and I think it matches with a lot of things.
Those Rutledges look really good! I was very tempted to get a pair during one of the seconds sales where this exact model was one of the featured shoes, but talked myself out of it. Might have to think about it again if it's featured in another sale later on.
