That's it. They're not heavily worn shoes, regardless of the exact number. But it's a data point that goes into evaluating whether to bid. are there other "little things" he's not telling us? Etc.

I work in the city and most days walk close to three miles a day round trip getting to and from work. Soles get scraped up pretty fast. But here's a picture of the sole of a pair of AEs that I've worn, I don't know, maybe a dozen times (maybe less; more than 3 or 4, less than 20). The Rendenbach logo is still visible amid the scrapes.
