Wow. Was not expecting that. Thought it could have been a good not great deal for a size 12. Also shell was Not listed in the title so there was a good possibility they could fly under the radar. Raoul Duke don't be such a HYPOCRITE, below is a post from you from two weeks ago in the Cool Shoes, Paraphernalia & Desiderata - Part II for USED ALDEN BLACK SHELL CORDOVAN shoes with a bin of $250 and a reserve that wasn't met over $180. The Alden shells I posted sold for $112 and in my mind were in a lot better condition. So your post asking "What exactly is cool/interesting about a pair of Black BB Shell Longwings?" I would ask you the same. Ironic?
I started this threak to post whatever I thought was interesting, under-valued or amusing. It was entirely subjective -- subjected to my perspective -- and not always rational. It veered vaguely anglophilic and was also based on whatever I happened to be searching for or interested in. So no Bruno Maglis, no Nike Air Cole Haans, no EGs that are already at over $600... I don't have a problem with non-shell BBs posted here but I don't go to every item description linked. Anyway, this is a thread where there a links to a camel saddle and to a whip made from a bull penis, it's not deadly srs.
I wish certain posters who clearly have better search-fu than I do would share their finds but recognize that might affect their own selling activities.
I also recognize that clearly the war on dumb has been won, and not by the brighter side. I for one abjure our new idiot overlords.
