Hi all, I have a couple items that I no longer/never had any use for. All items have been well-cared for, kept in a smoke-free environment, and in the case of shoes, kept on trees (trees, boxes, tags not included in any sale or trade), and recently cleaned/creamed/polished. UPDATE: pictures provided for worn shoes and Swiss rucksack; the German boots and Burton pack are in mint condition, so the links provide an exact representation of what you'd get. [Prices added] I'm also open to trades for gift cards to various stores, store credits, slim-fitting button down shirts size 15, odd sport coats size 36ish, cufflinks, bags, collectible coins, books, possibly other stuff. Shoes 1) Salvatore Ferragamo Studio Line "Leone:" black lace-up dress shoe, size 9 (US 10D; 12" heel to toe), worn just once. Purchased at Barneys in 2006 for around $350. (I know, I know). Cemented, as is typical in the Studio line, but I think a well-made shoe that'll provide plenty of wear. Lace-up, leather sole, lined, made in Italy etc. These shoes were sold "pre-broken in," and are comfortable as far as dress shoes go. UPDATE: SOLD 2) Via Spiga "Brannon:" dark brown slip-on, size 9 (US 10D; 12" heel to toe). Made in Italy, cemented, sleek-looking, leather sole, lined, etc. Worn just once. Received as a gift in 2005, but I was told that the person spent about $150 on them. Not sure if that's full retail or discounted. $60 shipped >> $55 shipped OBO http://i1038.photobucket.com/albums/...082210/VS1.jpg http://i1038.photobucket.com/albums/...082210/VS2.jpg http://i1038.photobucket.com/albums/...082210/VS3.jpg http://i1038.photobucket.com/albums/...082210/VS4.jpg http://i1038.photobucket.com/albums/...082210/VS5.jpg 3) Banana Republic: black leather chelsea boot (US 9.5D; 11.5" heel to toe). Made in Italy, apparently welted (good shoes, but construction probably isn't up to par with the really good makers), rubber sole, pull tabs, etc. Worn just once. Purchased in 2002 for probably around $150 at discount. $80 shipped >> $75 shipped OBO http://i1038.photobucket.com/albums/...082210/BR1.jpg http://i1038.photobucket.com/albums/...082210/BR2.jpg http://i1038.photobucket.com/albums/...082210/BR3.jpg http://i1038.photobucket.com/albums/...082210/BR4.jpg http://i1038.photobucket.com/albums/...082210/BR5.jpg 4) Mil-surplus East German Officer riding boot. Took them off a friend, he paid about $75 for them. Never used, size 10. Apparently cemented, leather lined, rubber sole. Check them out here. $50 shipped >> $45 shipped, OBO Bags 1) Vintage Swiss military salt-and-pepper rucksack. Purchased in 2008 for about $75, lovingly cleaned (these things are decades old and usually pretty filthy as is) and restored (tiny patches/stitches on the leather bottom, leather/straps conditioned; canvas thoroughly cleaned; added a canvas carry handle and protective canvas on metal buckles that can easily be removed as they are *not* stitched onto the canvas or leather; see pictures). Never used, though definitely can be. Very, very tough bag. While cleaning it I noticed that it actually held water, testifying to the dense weave of the canvas. UPDATE: SOLD 2) Burton Transistor laptop backpack in olive. Nifty bag in canvas with a padded laptop compartment, a dedicated waterproof compartment for shoes/boots; can be carried as a duffle with the included strap. Purchased in 2009 for $100, but never used. Basically brand new. I removed the tags, but I might have the tags lying around somewhere. Check it out here UPDATE: SOLD Thanks!
