You are right that is why I dio not have 100% - once I retaliated....

Great deal for someone if you like the shoe and it fits, perhaps could be flipped. I don't think the original retail price is correct (or maybe they are not shell):

new two tone shell cordovan moras seconds $150bin

That's actually the official Allen-Edmonds Shoe Corporation auction store... they do appear to be shell but I don't find them attractive... believe they were a custom order.

One drawback of the auction store is they don't take returns...

Too bad they aren't an 11.5 D, and in a single color. It looks like they even have a storm welt.

Here's an 11.5 D that would complement the one above: http://cgi.ebay.com/Allen-Edmonds-si...QQcmdZViewItem and another 11.D to add to your growing collection of two-tone shoes! http://cgi.ebay.com/305-Allen-Edmond...QQcmdZViewItem

Sausages strikes again. I don't normally pick up on their listings any more, since they stopped offering such tremendous deals on C&J, but these are interesting. They're an extremely sleek pair of bluchers on a last I've not hear of before, the 360--an example of a "smart round" last, with a lot of taper to the fairly pointed toe. Anyone know of this last? In any case, I like the shoes. The color looks like a natural for some really attractive antiquing.

A great pair of shoes (if you have two right feet)

Ok, I started this thread hoping to bring good values in quality shoes and leather goods to people's attention, so I generally post things that are undervalued. These are NOT, but they're so bizarre I have to post them:

EG crocodile penny loafers. But in size 5.5. Asking price is over two grand. They're suuposedly NOS, but look like they've been worn at least one shoe wear quantum (a unit we shall call a pidal, equal to two hours on carpeted surfaces).

I wish AE still made these, it'd be nice to have a cheap chukka in the American market. No photos of the soles, but the uppers look in better shape than $31. http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...m=110153949267

You're definitely much, much more of a shoe expert than I am, but my impression is that those thin topys are applied with rubber cement on top of the existing leather, which is left alone... I don't believe there to be any cutting out of the existing leather... And of course the heel topys are attached with small nails or tacks. However I could be wrong and welcome other opinions on this... personally I prefer shoes un-topyd -- I think the topy covering detracts from the overall aesthetics of the shoe - especially egregious on a shoe as beautiful as the revered Vass U-Last. Granted, the topys aren't noticed when the shoe is being worn, but as we all know, many of our shoes spend more time in our hands (being admired) than on our feet!

I won a pair of the exact same model a couple of weeks ago in black, old new stock, for about $60. I wish they'd also bring back their lace up dress boots as well.
