Allen Edmonds Polos in 8274 Black & Burgundy Polished Cobbler from 1984. Not a particularly rare model but it is a saddle spectator!
The sunlight in these pictures highlights the creases in the finish more than usual, they're much less noticeable in person. I think out of all of my shoes these have gotten the most compliments so I don't think people notice that very much.

I suspect these were factory recrafted at some point since the soles use a newer logo than the one found inside and are stamped with an R. At least I assume that's what the R stands for?

The date code implies these to have been made around February 20th 1984.

Shoekeeper: Stop! Who would cross the Bridge of Vintage Shoes must answer me these questions three, ere the other side he see.
Mix-a-lot: Ask me the questions, shoekeeper. I’m not afraid.
Shoekeeper: What… is your name?
Mix-a-lot: My name is “Sir Mix-a-lot of Camelot”
Shoekeeper: What… is your quest?
Mix-a-lot: To seek the Grail of grails, the vintage shoes of shoes.
Shoekeeper: What… is your favorite color?
Mix-a-lot: Golden Harvest.
Shoekeeper: Right. Off you go.

Presenting my best pair of GH, via a dear friend, along with my first pair of Alden Indys. They are both in minty condition, probably worn only a handful of times. Nothing but love!

PS: Monty Python- the bridge of death

LOL! Alright, since you called me out here... I hunted down the Concord listing. Did one of you guys buy these? I'm kind of astonished that they sold. I was nodding a bit initially feeling great about it and anxious to hit the buy button. But then I saw the neck around the heels and thought of @friendlygoz... and then... ooof.... the eyelet.... But they were only $210 so there's that. This might be the 1st 10E that I've seen but my enthusiasm quickly turned to heavy sadness. I can't find the 2nd pair right now.

Not "calling you out" so much as gently enabling you to make your collection all that it can be.
