Early/mid 90s? or earlier?

They were made on August 26th, 1993. Definitely!

No, just kidding How can anyone possibly tell from that picture?

Well, someone who had a rough idea when they stopped writing "The hand-crafted world of..." on their insole would be able to hazard a guess. JLibourel?

At least a decade.

I have a pair of AE's that I bought in a thrift store that seem very old. There is a small square cloth patch sewn onto the interior side of the leather with a now-somewhat faded AE coat-of-arms. My shoe vocabulary is obviously somewhat limited. They aren't spectators, but the top part between the laces and toes is white and the rest is brown.

They are from before the mid-1990's, but not before the 1980's (mid-80's?). Post this on AAAC; nomis will probably know for certain.

I think it boils down to when A-E started putting the code that indicated the week and year of manufacture inside their shoes. If they've been doing this for quite a while, it should be a simple matter to determine the year of manufacture.
