Some old and dusty shoes.
How do you come up with this "$100- $200" cost? It's simply not true and a very muddled process to figure out.
What are your variables? Moo has posted some very nice shoes over the last year plus. Some of them were purchased used, though. SO, is it RETAIL cost new or is it the price the poster paid if they were used?
What about gifts? What if the poster paid nothing because they were a gift?
What if they were bought on a clearance sale? Retail or Sale cost?
So, unless we disqualify any used, sale, or gifted shoes... For Vintage shoes, it would seem to make the most sense to translate their original cost to current dollars. ALSO, one would have to consider what the shoe market is today vs what it was when the shoes were manufactured. What percentage of the average person's income was spent on a pair of shoes and so on.
After, we assign a cut-off point on price (ie: all shoes posted here MUST have cost over $X), we should require a photo be posted of the receipt for the shoes to be absolutely sure!
OR, we could just drop this as a silly requirement and/ or point of argument and spend more time posting!
