If not, I agree have one more attempt at it. But with respect to your first e-mail, I don't believe you were direct/clear enough. Did you clarify with him whether you got the return address right? What if the address was off by a digit. Are you sure someone refused delivery? Why don't you ask him if there is another address to send the shoes to and if he wants them, you'll send at his expense.
In my email I included the address I sent the shoes to (I xxx it out when I posted it here). I also confirmed his address by email before sending and this was the same address as the return address on the box he sent me.
I tend to agree with you I don't want to be a jerk here. These aren't my shoes and I want to try to find a reasonable way to get them back to him, but I am not paying to return the shoes to him a second time. Judging by the emails he sent me, I doubt he will wire the money to pay for shipping the shoes back to him.
