Purchasing a used pair of shoes - Page 3

post #31 of 34
John A- Half this forum wouldn't trade in your old(er) Westons for new. They're a classic shoe with character...bblah blah blah. If I saw you walking down the street in them, I'd agree. I wouldn't still own them myself, but that is a personal idiosyncrasy (and an expensive one)-I've never kept a car more than three years either.

STYLESTUDENT, why is that idiosyncrasy "expensive"? btw John A -- love the first pair of shoes especially. very nice.

Patrick, If you see signs of age after, say, 7 years in a shoe, and then replace the shoe with a like shoe that costs $600, you'll spend $1,800 over a 21-year span for the same model, not considering inflation or price increases. John A will have kept the same pair over that period and have spent $600 once.

Ah, okay. But certainly the cost of re-soling and other maintenance adds up over a 21 year span, so the one pair could end up costing quite a bit more than $600.
