      fred- what gives the line away? i was hoping the sock liner would specify, but these have customized liners.

          this was purely an impulse buy. i'm not well versed in alfred sergeant, this is actually my first, but i'm pretty sure it was worth the $90 brand new, minimal shop wear, fits well, and did i say $90?
          What sample sale was this? That is like 85% off pricing right there.

            Not sure what the exact tell tale signs are but those have a beveled waist and a channeled sole. You don't find stuff like that in lower end shoes.

              it was for a brand called surface to air. the blanket pricing was $90 for all mens shoes, which was mostly their own labeled shoes (for things like leather espadrilles that looked like bleh-quality, made by who knows), so the pricing was for the most part pretty crappy. they just so happened to have these AS mixed in.

              when i went to check out, it didn't even scan in their pos system. i just pointed out that the sign said mens leather shoes = $90 and everyone agreed with me

                I never noticed that Alfred Sargent has the same initials I do. Now I'll need to get a pair! Great find on those shoes. Living in NYC definitely has its perks!

                  this reasoning is sound

                    Channeled soles for one, but I was mostly going by the packaging. I have two pairs from the AS Exclusive line and the box, bags, etc are identical to yours.

                        Stopped in the Macys one day sale today to pick up some alpha khakis on sale and spotted that all clearance shoes were an additional 65 percent off. I only spotted one half decent pair in my size at first glance...

                        Went ahead and bought them without much thought since i was on my lunch break, figuring I could return them if i wasn't happy with them.

                        Calvin Klein Navy Suede Wingtip Bluchers. Orig. $110.00, marked down to 82.50... After 65 percent and a coupon i stacked, i got them for 30 bucks.



                        Obviously id never pay full, or even sale price for a shoe of this quality... But what do you guys think for a 30 dollar suede beater shoe? Keep or return?

                          Return. Unless you really like them. Doesn't sound like you do, though.

                          There's a rule: Don't buy something just because it's on sale and it's half decent.

                            Good advice.

                            I personally wouldn't have purchased them for $30.

                              Needed some new undershirts so trying out these from Uniqlo.

                              I like them so far, no idea how they'll hold up.
