Yes, there used to be a lot more e-thrifts to have by misspelling but now that there is a list in the item specifics, if they pick from the list it shows up when I search on this misspelling, at least that's my experience.
My own successful E Thrift
1 by 1, made a small profit, guy still had probably another 800-1000 pairs last I knew. I contacted him to see about making another deal and he said he'd take some pictures and get back to me, never did, I never pushed it. I think I only had about 8-10 pairs that had cracking issues, and half of those were patent leather.
