Need member input on edward green cardiff

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Recently returned from a trip to California. On a whim, we stopped at a Neiman Marcus for a bathroom break with the kids and I decided to look at their shoes. There were the Edward Green (Purple Label) Cardiff's, possibly Edwardian Antique color, in what I thought were my size, 6.5 E English/7 US. I purchased them as I was in a hurry to try on later. Beautiful shoes. I can see now why the forum members like Edward Green so much. Unfortunately the shoes are not quite big enough for me. I am thinking of listing the shoes on eBay and would like some input from forum members as to a starting price and how to best present EG shoes. Unfortunately I have no box or custom shoe trees as I understand the Purple Label shoes will come with. I have included some pictures. Could I get your input? Is the smaller size going to limit me or is there a market for the 6.5 UK size out there? Thanks in advance.

I think 250-300 would be a fair starting price. You sure you don't want to consider shrinking your feet to fit in those gorgeous shoes?

Let me tell you, I've tried to fit into these shoes. I wear orthotics, which take up about a half size, and can't quite fit in without the orthotics. I'm bummed to say the least. It's amazing how pictures can't do EG shoes justice.

Maybe you could find a podiatrist to do some sort of "bone shave" where they plane your feet down.

I bit the bullet and listed them. I tried again and just can't get them on. http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...tem=4150653443

Over the last 7-8 months, I've kept a very close watch on EGs and EG/RLPLs that have been for sale on EBay. I've bought several as well. For brand new EGs, I have seen quite a few sell for more than $400 but I don't think I've seen any go for over $500. Most new ones have high starting prices (high= $350+). If the size is not one in high demand though, you may not get any bids, esp. if the starting price is $400+. However, this seems to be rare. If I were you, I'd either start out at $250 and set a $400 reserve, or just "feel the water" by starting out with a $375 or $400 opening bid with a $450 or so "Buy it Now" option. EGs rarely seem to generate bidding wars. For those EGs that do, I wouldn't be surprised to find they are between regulars on this board. Lobbs, on the other hand, do generate bidding battles as they are simply more well-known. Good luck.

Sooooo, John... when you say "Shipping to the United States, Canada, England, Germany, or Japan only.", you mean "and Australia, too"... Right?

Yes, Austrailia will work. Nothing to Trelew, Argentina though.
