Well guessed, its Millers.
The guy also offers a good bunch of other shoes.
The only thing about the boots was that they were realy high priced compared to his other stuff and at the first look they had a real nice color. I wasn't going to buy them anyway. But there is a psychological effect when you see something is that expensive. For a short moment you think: "there must be something about it.".
His strategy is to make up big stories about his articles and sell them as rarities. I just wanted to hear some opinions from shoe experts, maybe they know something about it that i don't know.
He may be nice, but asking $1400 for those, he is no gentleman.
I know, but i just wanted to be formal and polite.
I've never purchased worn shoes myself and i think i'm gonna stick with that attitude unless they are really something special and used 1 or 2 times.
I'm no fetishist or something like that. But i love good shoes like most people here. I've always worn shoes of a good quality most of them are C&J, AE and Grenson but i've never had one in the EG / JL class. I wanted to change that next time i visit paris. Or are there better ways?
I live in Germany and the problem with Germany is that you are far away from every thinkable center of style-culture. Most of the people here (of course not all) got no taste or a real bad taste and most of them are not interested in dressing a bit nicely. It is easily possible for me to order JL RTW shoes from local stores here but their prices are just ridiculous.
