I wouldn't. Those shoes are worn enough to have a developed cork footbed. Therefore, the chances it will properly fit you is basically nill.

I'd shoot for a pair of retail returns with one or two wears for $125 before I'd spend $80 on these.

at 30 bux, sure, but I bet the auction won't end anywhere near there.

What would you say they are worth? considering the scratch on right toe?

are you sure you are an 11E?

i would hate looking at that scratch every time i put that shoe on. i think $30 is about what i'd pay for those.

Yes I am an 11E which is why I was excited to see these shoes so cheap. Is there anything that can be done about the scratch?

Yeah- polish 'em. Without seeing them in person to see if there's actually a cut into the leather I can't say for sure, but most scuffs and scratches polish out, which is why you buy nicer leather in the first place.

But it could be actual damage to the leather, in which case you'll be able to minimize, but not completely fix, the damage.

I ordered the shoes already yesterday but the seller has a return policy. I will post pics of them for you guys can analyze them.

I would just try polishing 'em first. Or even better, take them into a pro and ask him to fix the scratch and polish 'em up. Probably run you all of $5, and you'll have a nice shine one 'em for your first wear.
