Off in what way? Looks like they could use some time with a nice horsehair brush, but other than that nothing jumps out at me.

the shape is off because he tied them tight at the top.

they are highly worn, you can see the sole shape of well ground down. It takes quite some wear to grind down the V-cleat, and these have quite some wear.

there is a cut on the left shoe at the top eyelet area

I would pay $30 for these, and not to wear. I would immediately sell for $60. they are not worth more

+1. Bluchers don't look right when the flaps aren't roughly parallel. Both tight or loose can look right, but an angle never quite looks right.

II = OK

I I = OK

I/ = NO

Some of the broguing on the front of the toe vanishes into the sole, these look like they were resoled wrong

The right shoe (left side of photo) appears to be narrower but it could be just a bad camera angle.

You have a lot to learn about shoes. They look perfectly fine.

Wide and short, tied strange while being worn flat under ball and still full thickness in non-wear areas.

Kind of looks like the wearer bought a few sizes too short.
