    If they were shell they are certainly worth picking up. Shell can be brought back from looking pretty bad as long as the leather isn't cracked or cut.

    All the time. They know up front what the shipping is going to cost, and are always prepared to pay the price. Sometimes the shipping is more than the selling price, it's crazy, but if you gotta have something, you gotta have it.. I guess.

    had a feeling i SHOULD'VE picked them up, just wasn't sure since one shoe had a little damage to the eyelet (shoelace was starting to tear into the eyelet, which I imagine is repairable in some way (maybe added metal eyelets? and they were resoled, not by AE.

    Haha, but when I saw them initially, I didn't see any micro-creasing and I was like

    Being they were my first possible shell sighting, but I couldn't check the model number until I got home, I neglected to pick them up.

    depends on where you will be. I had some decent luck in Sioux Falls - but take that with a grain of salt since I currently thrift in the wasteland known as Iowa.
