    http://images.jcrew.com/erez4/erez?s...if&tmp=prdDtIm Just picked up a pair of these today at J. Crew with an unbelievable story to go with them. I was out buying some standard casual wear from J. Crew and saw these Beckman's which I have had my eye on for quite some time but had not pulled the trigger on and had not seen in person. I couldn't bring myself to overpay for Red Wings just because they are a J. Crew exclusive. I asked to try them on so that I would be able to size them appropriately if they ever went on sale on the internet. I was told that the store only had the display model that had been returned to this store (not my size) and that they were only available online and in the Manhattan store on 5th Ave. I live in manhattan so no big deal. I continued my shopping which eventually totaled around 600 dollars (got lots of nice stuff on sale). At checkout I noticed that they were giving 20% off with a J. Crew card account opening (usually 10% but a special this week). This made me curious about getting the Beckman's for 20% off which they said I could if I ordered them over the phone from the store and used my new J. Crew card. So i got on the phone from the store and placed the order with the aid of a very helpful salesgirl. When the total came up she put me on the phone and I agreed (320 less 20% plus tax)...all good. When the sales girl heard me repeat this she asked for the phone back and spoke to the J. Crew rep. Apparently since they were a "one-off" item in this store (returned there but not supposed to be available for sale) the display model had been sale priced at 179. She haggled with the woman on the phone for a while and then gave the phone back to me. Long story short I got $320 dollar boots for $179 less 20% plus tax (total was $156 and change). I have never had so much blind luck with a sale.

    I'm assuming the unbelievable part of the story was that he spent $600 bucks at J crew.
