    @JC: You seem to be pretty knowledgable about second-hand shoes on ebay as to what's cool and what they're worth. I'm a little weary of getting sniped (my own paranoia), but I'd like some second opinions. Is there a way I can send you the links privately or do you think I've got nothing to worry about by posting them here?


    EDIT: Nevermind. I found you on Facebook. Sending you a message.

      FB messages never seem to work ... email me at jcarreira AT gmail dot com....


      My advice will mostly be to search completed listings for the same shoe model you're looking at

        I'll email you, but one of these shoes is quite unique. There's nothing I can find to compare it to.

          Not a shoe find, but I won this for like $18 shipped... Linings can be replaced:

            What's make the total coat/jacket tally? :-)

              Oh, I try not to think about it... Not sure if I'll keep it or flip it. We'll see.

                Seems to be a piece of history for anyone who can fit into them:

                I'd be bidding on them if they were my size.

                  Wow... those shoes are gorgeous. And they might actually fit me. (I'm a 7.5/8.) But with the money I've spent recently, $71 seems high, and I'm sure the price will only continue to skyrocket as the auction winds up.

                    Yeah. Judging by the number of bids and the time left, I bet it at least doubles before its over. But they sure are nice...

                      Here's some more history:

                          They're pricey, but I've got my eye on these:


                          http://www.ebay.com/itm/MADE-ENGAND-High-End-Brown-Poulsen-Skone-Co-Shoes-/160726097557?pt=US_Men_s_Shoes&hash=item256c059e95


                          The starting bid is high, but I'm hoping they don't climb any higher since the maker(Poulson Skone) is rather uncommon. Plus the fact that they're straight-up English may dissuade buyers with the sizing conversion.


                          I've been in pretty close contact with the seller. It seems he's selling off his whole collection - tons of high-end shoes in my size. Nothing has been bid on yet, but they haven't been up for long.

                            Being English won't dissuade anyone. The English make the best shoes in the world.

                              @JC: Why do you always have to rain on my parade? :-S

                                @JC: He's accepted a BIN offer of $150. My trigger finger is getting a little itchy...
