Ebay hilarity

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Check out the guy's auction here. http://cgi.ebay.com/ws....y=11503 See those shoes? He claims these are Allen-Edmonds "Berkley." Nevermind that big "Crockett & Jones" stamp there in the footpad. Good going there, buddy.

Well he said the shoes are not brown as in the picture. They are obviously not the shoes featured at all. That picture is just lifted from the C&J catalogue or web site. (The picture in the original auction has gone.) Did you realize the seller lives in Spain and these AE shoes are AA width. He bought them on eBay.com (from bamboo3 on Dec 12th for $ 9.95) and as Europeans are not used to different width, has ended up with a pair of incredibly narrow shoes, which will not fit his European feet. This happens on German eBay all the time. Aldens achieve enormously high prices in Germany. Quite a few guys make a living by getting their shoes in the US of A, to sell them on eBay.de. Of course weird sizes like AA sell much cheaper than standard fittings. You can follow these shoes: bought in the States for under $ 30.00, auctioned on eBay.de for maybe $ 120.00, then a fortnight later, they return to eBay.de, auctioned by the new owner who can not wear them as they are to narrow.

What cracks me up is reading some of the listing titles: "Brand New NALDINI..." Like THAT is going to stir my loins.

That's a pretty sad history. I pity the foo' who gets his shoes too narrow.
