I'm still thinking they might be EGs, possibly in tan calf. Maybe there's something to the theory that they're closeouts as part of the shift in PL maker. (Assuming that's true.) While I'm impressed by the power of SF, it seemed like these shoes, newly listed on the Polo site, sold out awfully quickly. Perhaps the quantity was limited for a reason?
There's also the baffling question of pricing. Are any of the C&J laceups priced at $325? Wouldn't that have to be a pricing mistake too?
The greatest potentials for disappointment I see are the possibilities that they'll: 1) be made in Italy; 2) not be laceups at all.
