gauss17 good point... i guess to remove that variable, keep it with non-cordovan, and that list is very informative, thank you- snedley you are absolutely right that fit is important, but that aside my question is basically a quality one. i.e. this shoe is the same quality at this one, but this is $200 more, etc. and by quality i mean construction and longevity (with proper rotation, of course)
You have to figure that a shoe wil llast perhaps 5 years. maybe 10 max. A $300 AE has construction at the very top so spending $1k isn't going to get you a bettter fitting or lasting shoe. What I don'tlike about very expensive shoes (other than custom made ones)is that most come in 1 width which is absurd for a $1k shoe.
