    I read that some of the pre-worn AE's are stamped with a "W" on the bottom and AE will not recraft these. This may be incorrect, I have not tried to have such a pair recrafted.

    I've always wondered where to draw the line between new shoes and when they're not returnable. I always think once i swear shoes "out", no more returns. Is this not the case with AE?

    I noticed you have carpet there, so maybe you didnt scuff the sole of the shoes too bad?

    Right. I didn't wear them outside at all; only on the carpet inside.

    I am really considering getting the Rutledge in burnished brown. I have Park Ave in black, walnut Strand and CXL Bayfield on the way. I need a pair of brown dress shoes and to me the Rutledge looks much better than the go to Fifth Ave; although considerably more expensive.

    Does anyone have any in the wild shots of the brown Rutledge to push me over the edge? The other option would be this from Meermin which is very similar.

    I would prefer to stay with AE.

    I suggest in the future a google image search. If you type in "Rutledge in burnished brown" it conveniently returns a few images from July 7 in this same thread:


    Those are gorgeous. It is good for my wallet that they don't exist in AA width.

    Thanks for the photos but those are the walnut, not burnished brown. My googlefu is mildly strong, I have only found a couple of shots and figured some here would have them in brown.

    I believe they won't accept these for returns, but I see no reason why they can't be recrafted. All recrafted shoes will presumably have been worn quite a bit before even being sent in. Besides, you have to pay for the service, so they should have no issue performing it.

    My apologies -- you're absolutely right. I'm kind of amazed nobody has posted the brown here yet.

    Some may prefer the fit of the 8 last to the 333 last. It's up to the person buying the shoes though if that is worth $200.

    After wearing my fifth aves yesterday, I kind of wish I had have gotten something different like the strands or rutledge. The cap just makes the entire shoe look... off. I really wish it was longer. I guess it's too late now, though.

    I'm all confused :uhoh: because I saw some Players in walnut at the store one time and they were pumpkin orange almost. Those look considerably darker.
