WARNING: THE FOLLOWING ARE NOOB QUESTIONS. IF YOU BASH, PLEASE DO SO WITH HUMOR. I acquired some Allen Edmonds today from a used store and I know almost nothing about shoes. I like these ones, they are tight so I might sell them instead of keeping them, but I will wear them for a bit. They look durable!So I have three questions: 1. I have no idea how to tell if a pair of shoes is made of shell cordovan. I really doubt these are as there are no markings at all to identify them as such. Can anyone tell me? The inside of the shoe just says Allen Edmonds and MacNeil. 2. How much mileage would you say these have? They seem in very good shape to me! I think they still make these new. Still some years to go? 3. How much (very rough) are these worth? I guess that depends a lot on number 1! http://img227.imageshack.us/i/img0044br.jpg/ http://img201.imageshack.us/i/img0045ui.jpg/ http://img408.imageshack.us/i/img0046cl.jpg/ Thank you for your time wise-menI think these are pretty standard AEs so these questions should be answered quickly and this thread can die in peace. EDIT: SHIT! This forum doesn't automatically size pictures? Think I would know that by now... I replaced pictures with links to them so the opening post isn't HUGE. I can put them again if it helps.
