Picked up a pair of factory second Rutledges from the shoe bank. $322. Defects are very minor and do not bother me at all. A bit of discoloration on the inside of the left shoe (using Saphir wax seems to be helping) and some "imperfect" leather on the toe of the right shoe. I think the shoe is pretty boss- its comfy, color is absolutely AMAZING, and I think it matches with a lot of things.
