OK folks. This one is a bit of a tough one. I've been taking my accumulated stuff out of the attic and getting it ready to consign or sell. I'm posting here because I'm not sure if its considered thrifting if its your old stuff.
I found these in a box up there, where they have been since 1993 since I was transferred away from Texas. Decided to put some leather lotion on them and polish them up, but I have no idea what price range these should bring.
The first are original Kalso earth shoes that I bought myself in 1977. I wore them occasionally until around 1979, but from 80 on, they never made it out of my closet. So 2 continents, about a dozen cities in 3 states. These are classics and I'm hoping there are still some dope smoking hippies my age who will need a pair of size 11's. I searched on them and all I see are versions that have come out of the company who now owns the production and tried to take the brand more broadly. And yes, I had clark wallabies, desert boots and chuck tailors in my School Shoe rotation.
The next ones are Tony Lama full-quill ostrich boots. I bought these for a company outing in Texas (along with a resistol hat) and wore them maybe 20 times. I got them down last night, cleaned, moisturized and polished. The have "george strait" embroidered into the inner pull straps. There were some of these online, but they varied so much in price, and none were in the George Strait lines. So not sure.
Not sure the value of a celebrity endorsed, lightly worn, 25 year old ostrich boot, but half of you folks will know.
So the Tony Lama's look like they will hit $90, here are two listings:
As for those black shoes, burn them and don't let the smoke come near you lest you be contaminated with their evil.
