The seller doesn't know anything about the sizing on these? Does anyone here know what US size these would be? Quite the nice pair of shoes!

This really sucks! The first month of school is really a bitch because I don't get any of my financing (GI Bill) until October and I have to eat now! I am 25 years old and have not asked my parents for help since I was 17 and I'm not starting now. My dad gave me these shoes and said if I could sell them the money is all mine and I can't sell them? They weren't endangered at the time they were made for crying out loud! They are amazing shoes!

I think this might be managed and enforced by US Customs. Might be worth checking on their website to see if there is an exception for goods that are over a certain age; i.e.: before the rules came into being. I'm not 100% sure, though...

Pre CITES items ARE allowed. The problem is that it's really impossible to prove the age of shoes. Even if ther were Edwin Clapps or Nettletons (2 makers who did a little turtle shoemaking), they want more than just "well, they were made in the US, so they MUST be pre-CITES".

Be very careful with overseas shipping. In Germany, I know of a pair of gator Florsheims that were incinerated because enough proof they were PRE-CITES could not be shown (even a vintage ad wasn't enough).

Alligators are endangered?

post #8950 of 12973
As it turns out, several of my dads past really good customers happen to be the same size as these shoes and also have a pre-disposition toward exotic and rare items/shoes, so he agreed to email them directly for me and offer them the shoes. One in particular has purchased most of his rarest items in the past so there is a better than 50/50 chance he will want these.

I was doing some computer programming for extra cash, but once school actually started time became a bit of an issue as the projects they are sending me are going to take more time than they did in the past and I don't get paid until the project is done. Not complaining, just short on cash right now.

There are certain species of Order Crocodylia which are endangered (crocodylia includes crocs and alligators). I believe Egyptian and certain South American. Customs people have no idea how to identify a specific species of crocodylia, so they are instructed to assume they are endangered/ illegal UNLESS the importer has paperwork that proves otherwise.

I have some experience in shipping Croc internationally. The CITES tags are used to discourage trading in endangered species, by requiring tags on all exotic skin regardless of whether they are endangered.

Buyers should check Vass sizing carefully here. Euro 40 in no way normally equates to US8 as the seller claims (it's more like UK6 / US7).
