That seller, "shoes of distinction," is notorious for insane prices for used shoes, and he is non-responsive to emails. I was interested in making an offer on some shoes, and he never responded to any of my inquiries. That was 3 months ago, and the shoes are still for sale on eBay. He seems to have a strategy of buying most used Edward Greens on eBay and attempting to resell them at a ridiculous markup. I'm curious to see if he has the capital to maintain this strategy. I guess if he buys almost everything on the market, it will drive prices up. It's going to cost him over the short term.
Also, he really doesn't know much about shoes. I have seen half a dozen, or more, shoes that he labeled as "Edward Green for so-and-so," that were incorrectly marked. At the ridiculous prices he asks, you would expect him to verify this information.
