Lobb double monkstrap auction

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

I had been watching an auction with a pair of Lobbs shoes with no reserve price, and when it went past my limit (which was fairly low, given it's in black and it's in sterling) I forgot about it except to note that it closed for 156 GBP I think. When I checked my ebay summary, it said the item was relisted and there I see a pair of double monkstraps, but now starting 200 pounds and a BIN of 240. I can't be absolutely sure it's the same pair even though ebay told me it was a 'relist', I thought the previous listing was for a 'Wallace' not 'Williams' and size 43 not 43.5. I've emailed the seller out of curiosity but no reply. Did anyone else notice this auction?

I was watching this too, but more as sport than an actual purchase.

That's the previous auction:

I don't know what happened, maybe he misnamed the shoes, maybe he had problems with the buyer or he was shill-bidding a bit too hard and ended up, buying his own stuff. (I'm always sceptical about "private auctions" for respectable items.)

That's the Wallace

That's the William

Search me, about the difference.

beside the heel, the leather strap and buckle position looks faintly different.

The William is double-soled while the Wallace is single.
The auction item is, in fact, the Wallace.
