If so, by that reasoning, heck, you could get new shoes for $49.99! Does that make one a "sucker" for buying a pair of used Lobbs in excellent condition for $400? Are shoes of comparable quality widely available new-in-box for less?
I don't doubt that others, like myself, have scored some major bargains over the years - but as you point out, it would be damn rare indeed to grab shoes like this new, at this price.
