These arrived on Friday but I didn't get a chance to unbox and photo until tonight. My first Shoemart Seconds. Thanks to interlockingny for the tip on availability, and thanks to Shoemart for the extra January Sale 10% off and their usual great customer service - I can't say I'm planning to stock up in advance of the price increase any further, but I never thought I'd get these brand new for that price! Now if only they'd get some whiskey longwings in 11D/11E... Cigar Shell Longwing Bluchers, 97894 Seconds - the flaw in these is probably a combination of a) some discoloration under a "blucher" on one shoe, shown in photo #2 but invisible once laces are on, and b) a bit of extra leather on one "blucher" - pictured below in photo #3. Planning to remove this with some very tiny very sharp sewing scissors soon, and they'll be perfect!
