    Dear AE Enablers:

    Do I grab these used Eagle County's for 150? They look like they'd be great fall/winter/spring boots and pretty versatile too.
    Is the mark on the sole a mark for seconds?

    Edit: Oh wait, these were like 200 for an MTO right and closed out for like 170 or something? Hm..

    That is a "No Warranty" mark on the bottom. It means AE won't recraft them if you ever need to you or have any structural issues with the shoes you will have to go to an independent cobbler. The $200 deal was really us taking advantage of a very generous MTO policy AE had and shouldn't be a real gauge of the what the Eagle County MTOs were really worth. Still $150 sounds like a lot for used AE's, but they don't look to be in too bad of shape if it is really the shoe you want you won't have a lot of other options.

    These are the natural wax Mctavish from 2012 (I think).

    for the price of wilbert firsts, these aren't bad imo, but if you already have enough shoes, there's no reason to keep them.

    Thanks for the great response.

    Why do shoes get the no warranty mark?

    AE sells worn returns to a third party retailer (I am guessing this auction is by Hitch N' Post) to recoup some of their losses on these or anything that is so defective that it can't be a second will get the "No Warranty" mark.

    Wow, I'm glad I came back to the thread for this.

    I'm 99% 100% sure those are my original MTOs! I really loved how they turned out, but they were way too big for me. I shipped them back to Allison and she confirmed that even though I asked for 8.5E, they were made on the 9E last. Please keep that in mind when deciding upon them. I only wore them once, so don't worry about them being mistreated.

    Here was the make-up:

    Model: Eagle County
    Size: 8.5E 9E
    Upper: Golden Brown Chromexcel
    Stitching: Contrast, Khaki (to match "Brown with Reverse Smokey Stitch" welt)
    Lining: Independence
    Insole: Independence
    Welt type: Split Reverse
    Welt color: "Brown with Reverse Smokey Stitch" of the Wilbert
    Edge dressing: Light Brown Transparent
    Eyelets: Copper Agatine
    Speed hooks: 5-holes/4-hooks instead of 6-holes/2-hooks/1-hole as it comes.
    Sole: Mini-Lug Tap Sole with Leather Midsole

    EDIT: After finding the eBay listing, I'm positive they were mine.

    I used to make some extra cash by buying all the seconds I was interested in, keeping the certain ones and flipping the rest on ebay, but it seems ebay prices have gone down considerably and theres not much room for profit anymore...

    Does that mean they cannot be recrafted?

    hard to find Merlot Strands (seconds) from the Port Washington Shoe Bank....I can't seem to find any blemishes, other than the light colored thread end on the edge of the right shoe (they don't appear to be even tried on)

    Really? I just thought that meant they won't do any work on them for free or exchange them. I don't see why they won't recraft them if you pay. Like a normal recraft. I could be dead wrong.

    Just called AE. They WILL recraft "no warranty" shoes. But if something goes wrong in the recraft, they won't help you. You are just out a pair of shoes.
