    Would love some in the wild pics of both the saddle brown and black vernons! I'm thinking about the black to replace my park aves, but the saddle browns look great also from the pics I've seen

    I prefer the styling on the Meermins more.
    Saw those on one of my eBay hits going for around $800. Look nice and I didn't know that AE made them.

    Really like these too.

    I don't know if this qualifies as 'in the wild', but here they are at work:

    Thank you sir.

    The wolverines came in Horween Cordovan color 449, so they're a nice medium-dark brown.

    I should add that the Strands (in walnut) were available as seconds for only $200 at my AE store...apparently they're a "featured" sale item. At that price, I couldn't pass them up.

    That looks like a black paint or edge dressing, not like a part of the shoe or a topy. Some ebay resellers use this to make the sole of the shoe appear "new" again, on shoes worn once or twice.


    Keep in mind, RL usually has a sale in early November for 40% off, plus a 15% kicker. That's what I'm waiting on before I shell out for their shell Marlow wingtips.

    You're correct. On a second look it looks like paint

    It also has two small holes drilled into one shoe (or it appears as such). I have seen this before, what does it mean when AE does this?

    it isn't AE who drills those holes. nordstrom drills those holes when a pair gets returned to the store.

    ah.. i see. Do those shoes appear to have been worn just a few times judging by the pictures though? Do they only drill holes if they've been worn for a considerable amount of time?

    Yes, worn only a few times at most. I think Nordstrom's drills the holes on any shoes that have been worn and returned, therefore not sellable as new.

    Also, if anyone is in the Cleveland area, The new Woodmere store is having a "meet the CEO" evening from 5-7pm on October 9. It's 2 hours away, otherwise I think I'd go.

    Quote: I have the Strand (5 last) and Clifton (8 last). I wear an 8.5 E in both, though the 5 fits my foot a bit better.
