Disappointing if it is corrected grain. Thanks for the input; a newbie like me doesn't know how to tell the difference. That said, I got them for $99, and it does fill a big hole in my new rotation (no burgundy/merlot shoes just yet! Just black, bourbon, and walnut). Thanks for the advice! If they do fit, I'm planning on using them for sure, just for fun. Here's a picture of the numbers on the inside. I also just sent an email to Allen Edmonds customer service with the picture, asking about the model/when it's from. They should give me some good information to post as well.
