Allen Edmonds Strand Walnut - 9D - NIB - Rubber sole - $175 Shipped**- Price firm Edit: I am also selling NIB Allen Edmonds Patriot Loafer - 9D - Black on ebay for $150. http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=251236200891 **Please take special note of the sole - it is the same as the factory applied treaded rubber sole on my Allen Edmonds Easton from ~3 years ago. The shoe is still goodyear welted and recraftable. The tread does add a small bit of thickness to the sole. To those wanting a walnut Strand for its versatility, the rubber sole could be seen as a beneficial feature allowing it to be worn in more diverse environments and weather conditions. It may be see as detrimental to those only looking to wear with a suit. I'm not aware of the Strand being widely available with this sole aside from a special order above retail price. This pair was purchased directly from Allen Edmonds. They have not been worn except for trial fitting, indoors, for a brief (~5min) time. I did apply Allen Edmonds leather conditioner cleaner once. I can find no flaw in either shoe - they are 1st quality; even seconds at this price would make a good deal. I am selling at a low price because I am new to online selling, and do not want to hassle with a long wait to make a sale. I'd like to get a quick sale and buyer feedback to get started. Returns generally will not be accepted; I reserve the right to deny any return. However, I do wish to establish a reputation as an honest high quality seller - I will accept all returns due to my error. Buyer should contact me if there is any issue that appears to warrant return. No returns for poor fit; All returns must be pre-authorized; Buyer pays return shipping unless my error; Shoes must be returned in same condition as sent; Refund processed only upon receipt of returned shoes. Shipping: I will ship either UPS or FedEx ground. Buyer, please let me know if there is a preference, otherwise I will use whichever service is more convenient to me that day. **It is my experience that FedEx charges ~$14 to ship a single pair of shoes, using ground service, to continental United States locations. Buyer will be responsible for additional shipping charges above $20, but not any shipping charge $20 or less.
