I love the 2nd pair you listed.

They retailed for $225 back when I bought them [just by chance for very VERY much less], and I saw a pair at Macys a year or so ago selling for $375.
Bottom - Johnston and Murphy [I think that they call it the Cumberland nowadays]. Only 4-5 years old, but also not showing wear much at all [outside of laces, oh and the Polo laces are ALSO original]. Very VERY comfortable. Probably most comfortable I own outside my Bacco Buccis.
* The Chiefs have more player-committed murder-suicides than playoff victories in the past two decades.
* During last year's meltdown against the Colts in the post season, it looked like the injuries slider was turned up to 100% and they were carting bodies off the field like they were filming B-roll for "The Strain".
* Brodie Croyle (!) is the only quarterback drafted by the team to start a game for them since the mid-80's...and he barely beat out Damon Huard in the process. Croyle then promptly lost all six of his starts. He couldn't even beat out Tyler Thigpen once he returned from injury.
