Thanks guys.  I'm thinking of selling a few of my shoes that I rarely wear or ones that don't fit the best.  As several of you have said, you've sold off the ones that don't fit as well.

That is how they came. That photo was taken right out of the box before they were even worn.

Here's how much I sold various AE's that didn't fit quite right for this year:

-Color 8 Shell MacNeil 2nds: $150 on SF

-Oxblood Daltons: $150 on SF

-Brown Memphis: $45 on SF

-Color 8 Shell Dundee 2nds: $219 on eBay

-Dark Chili Varno 2.0: $130 on SF

Thinking of selling:

 

Merlot Park Aves - worn about 15 times - excellent condition, but footbed is formed of course. - maybe $60?

Ashton in chili - worn 50 times at least.  Probably not worth more than $20-30

I dont know what those PAs look like but if they are in the condition you describe, I imagine they would fetch more than $60.

List both pairs for 10 day eBay auctions ending on a weekend around 8 PM EST. No buy it now price. Start the bidding on the Park Avenues at $99, and start the bidding on the Ashtons at $49.

Its time for an Ebay tutorial to answer the question, "What does this shoe sell for?" Here is a handy way to see what a particular item has been selling for in the past. This is also a good way to see selling prices for a style that you are considering making an offer on. Just follow these steps and I will use the Park Ave in 11 EEE as an example..

 

1. Go to Ebay (of course) and enter "Allen Edmonds Park Avenue" as the search term. Right now, it shows 543 shoes are listed.

 

 

2. Now filter the results by checking of the size and width. If your size is not listed, click the "See all" and it will list all sizes available. Doing this now dropped the number of shoes to 7 for the 11 EEE.

 

 

3. These seven shoes shows the current asking price for the shoes available right now. You can check each shoe to check for condition and compare them to what you are selling.

 

4. To see previous sales, scroll down to locate the "Show only" selections.

 

 

5. You can select "Sold listings" to see the sales prices of this style and size shoe. These results can then be sorted to show the most recent sales, highest price first, etc.

 

 

 

6. I find the Completed listings to be very useful as it shows all prior listings, including those that sold. The sales price is shown in green and the expired, unsold listing in black.

 

 

7. The final trick is that you can use this sorting of completed listings to see if a shoe has been listed before and when. Locating the same shoe 3-4 times shows the shoe did not sell and the seller may be more interested in a lower offer than if it is a new listing and they are still hopeful.

 

8. Finally, the sold listings provides a great deal of information on the number of bids needed to sell an item, buy it now and best offer accepted. These three shoes show each of these options.

 

 

The first shoe sold on auction with one bid, which was the opening price. The second shoe sold at full price with buy it now, but the seller offered free shipping. The third shoe sold at an unknown price. The list was $179, but the seller accepted a lower price. The last shoe was sold by Dabondo and he always accepts a lower price than listed. These steps will help you to avoid asking for too little or far too much.

If you are interested in finding out what the approximate selling price was for an accepted best offer, loosen up your search terms and then sort the completed listings by price.  For example, I searched Park Aves and didn't narrow it down by size so that I would have the most data points.  Now I can see that this particular pair in the middle sold for between $39 and $39.90 including shipping, which means that the seller probably accepted an offer of $30 + $9.90 shipping vs. their asking price of $44 + shipping.

All true. My only caution is to watch out for the outliers. For example, an odd size, life 14AA, will have low demand and sell for a lower price

Also, shoes that violate the Geneva Convention's prohibition against torture have depressed prices.  Less than a year after being introduced, I bought a lightly worn pair of burg Patriots for $60 and sold them immediately after trying them on for $50.  It was all the market would bear at the time.

 

By the way, the rare August combination of low 70's for highs and persistent rain was all the excuse vI needed to break out the golden brown CXL Long Branches today.  I still marvel that they are as comfortable as my Hopkinsons.

Anyone have the new Liverpool Chelsea boot yet?  The SA at my store in Cleveland is bringing in a pair for me to try on, and I'm curious what they're like.

Lots of rain today, so I went with my vibram lug soled Normandy. Love these boots, just wish the rubber didn't squeak so much.

Well, I guess I can die as a satisfied man. I now join several other illustrious SF members and two of my pictures were used on the AE social gallery.
