    If it's just a polish scuff and the leather is not damaged, I would keep them. Polishing is easy. Any boot you get in return will have defect if seconds, so there's some value in knowing what you have already.

    If you look at the picture I think it's more then a polishing scuff but it might able to covered a bit with black polish and make it more burnished

    I saw a few pairs, they didn't have my size in the Bayfield in store but they did have a couple of pair in the warehouse. I am an 8D so there is only one of those left now. The color is Brown Chromexcel. If you are interested, call them and ask. They will ship anywhere. The guy to talk to is Adam, tell them Andrew Smith sent you. Maybe I will get a commission out of it haha. The number is 205-699-6566.

    Well I think I am going to go home and put a few coats of Reno of them and then a coat of black polish and see.

    On a side note I got a call from my shoe guys who informed me my pair of Alden Indy boots 403 came in... shoot I forgot about them. My wife is going to kill me

    I will post pictures soon. So far it's coming out great. I wanted a more dark cherry look and with the toe blemish I had to go there but now I really do love them even if I am the only one

    I received my Randolph chili grain loafers today from the AE outlet in 9.5D for $99. I couldn't get my feet into them but then tried manually stretching them with a shoe tree. I'm sure this ain't that good for the shoe but there was no way I could get my feet in. They seemed really small.

    Now I am able to slide into them with a bit of struggle with the shoe horn. Once they are on though they fit snug and pretty good (a bit tight). I imagine though that being loafers they will stretch out just enough where eventually I will be able to slide into them on more easily. How long will this usually take? 5 wears of 8 hours? I'm wearing them around the house currently. Are there any other methods to have them stretch out a bit without buying a shoe stretcher or paying a cobbler?

    The loafers look great though, love the shape, fit is good too when they're on, and the look of the grain. Big thanks to bucksfan, as his Randolph shell pair introduced me to this model. I would have loved shell but at $99 I had to grab em.

    PS - I can't detect the defect(s) from my untrained eyes.

    Those look fantastic. Hard to believe they were $159 to start, and your polishing is going well.
