    AE "Worn and Refinished"

    I was at the local Nordstrom Rack today and saw a pair of black Park Avenues that were "worn and refinished" for $112. The soles were painted black (to cover up sole wear I assume). Other than that, they were in perfect condition. In the past, I've seen a few pairs of these worn and refinished Wolverine 1K boots there as well. Do any of you guys have any experience with anything like this or any thoughts? Seems like a killer price for the obligatory black cap toe oxford.

    Those look like they might have just been tried on in the store, as opposed to walked on pavement with. Some minor creasing on the right shoe, but that would happen the first time you wore them out anyways. If I saw this deal I'd probably buy a pair if they had my size.

      Looks like you got yourself a great deal!
      WHY ARE THE GUYS IN SUITS HERE? HAS SOMETHING GONE WRONG?

        I believe all red tags at NR are clearance. They started an extra 25% clearance today, so one more day and they'd have been $84!

        I'm still on the fence about them though. I have an identically-styled (though inferior quality) shoe for the few times I need a formal black oxford. These are also size 10 and are just a little cramped in the toe. Should probably be a half-size larger. But I grabbed them while I could and figured I'd decide later.

          That seems like a pretty good deal. I"ve seen used AEs in worse shape go for more.

            I love a good deal but just cannot get behind used shoes. Seen AES at my local Nordstrom rack but not used. Marked up or 2nd quality I am all good for but just something about where someone else’s foot has been sweating etc.

            Does that not concern you all? Do you disinfect or clean thoroughly before wearing/ does AE when refinishing etc?

              If they don't fit, that's not such a great deal. Cramped length-ways is harder to stretch, I think. I have my own kit and it works pretty good for getting more width across my toes, but not so much on length.
