As if AE could make such good looking shoes.... C&J Westfield's, those are.
First quality is closer to $300 when tax is included. $200 for seconds maybe....
And yes, I agree....with the depressed Euro, it makes sense to pick up the likes such as Carminas for a great price.
Allen Edmonds and Jalan Swirijaya are the only brands I've ever owned that didn't make my feet hurt in some way at some point. Meermin takes a lot of breaking in (and still isn't great). I had a pair of Carmina for about a month; best fitting of their lasts for me. But it just was uncomfortable and they were traded. Yount shoes fit alright. C&J fit ok. But they aren't actually comfortable. Just not uncomfortable.
