"SUBS" means "Sub standard" or "Seconds". They are shoes that C&J won't or can't sell at retail as there is something wrong with the shoe. Usually, even to the trained eye, you can't tell what's wrong with them. The sources these shoes were obtained from normally ensure that they are "as new", or it would be very clear during the sale.
This is the best way of creating a great shoe collection on a budget. The downside is it's often pot luck as to what turns up...
