These were the first pair of nice shoes I have ever owned, given to me by my dad (so they cost me nothing). They fit beautifully and are extremely comfortable. $344.57 plus shipping to EG is worth the price, IF they turn out nice. If they did to them what was done here then, yes, it would be a rip-off. I will know early next week, I hope.
As to those selling EG's here? I agree, some amazing deals and I am considering a pair as I write this, but these are quite special to me. My total, personal, investment in these shoes is $344.57 and shipping so assuming they turn out as nice as the pair bengalstripe did a while back (and mine appear to be the same shoes he had) it will have been well worth the price, in the end. Recrafting is not for everyone, clearly, but it works well for some.
