    basically means a slightly earlier recraft than normal. At such a discount, it is well worth it

    It means someone bought the shoe and probably before ever wearing them had a rubber bit glued on, likely because they felt the full leather didn't offer traction or wouldn't last *rolls eyes*

    Because rather than get a v tread MTO cambridge, they bought one for $650-$700 and then didn't get it lol

    The rubber will wear faster, so Ill get an earlier recraft is all.. 5 years in instead of 10

    I didn't get a chance to chime in. They're what I've always referred to as Strandmok 1.0 (though obviously there was no 1.0 before the 2.0) or as the OG Strandmoks. I've seen the Brogue with orange at Burlington Coat Factory back in the day. I don't remember the size other than it wasn't mine.

    Hey guys, I'm having a brain fart. What's the name of the place that has MTM suits and such you can order online? I think they may be based in Canada?

    Spier & Mackay is in Canada, but I’m not sure if they do MTM.

    Yes, that's the one I'm thinking of. I thought they did MTM but maybe not.

    I've noticed that the AE horsehair brush has been unavailable online for a little while now. Imagine it should be back in stock sooner rather than later? I think it's a great value for $10.

    I snapped this photo on 8/27/16 when I was at NR in Costa Mesa. I wonder if this shoe in the middle is the exact same one you found. :lol: The other AE shoes here are a pair of navy suede Parks (that I bought and later sold) and a pair of olive Baton Rouge shoes.

    That would be pretty crazy!

    This pair was shipped to me from Scottsdale and they came with brown laces. I changed them over to orange to match the welt stitch and midsole. The brown laces they came with were thicker and cheaper than the ones AE usually uses so it might be the case someone replaced their original ones.

    Other than that the shoes look like they've been tried on but basically brand new and unworn. eBay listing said that they were a floor model, who knows?

    I wonder if there's a bigger story behind this model than I've uncovered so far. Nordstrom Rack, Burlington Coat Factory and ShoeBank, hmm...
