Given the foregoing threads, let me recommend a surefire business strategy. The A. Harris auctioned shoes were (somewhat controversially) bought at Marshalls for $150 or less, then held for resale. Maybe you could wait for his next auction, buy a pair for $450, wait a month or two, and auction them for $1350. In turn, the next buyer could flip them for $4050. Mathematically, within a year this single pair of shoes, thoughtfully marketed, could comprise up to a third of the US gross national product, and singlehandedly usher in a new era of prosperity.
First, this makes absolutely no sense, whether it's meant as irony, humour, seriously, whatever... Secondly, Chocoball, who is the one who started the thread
(below) ended up buying the shoes in question from me, and was very satisfied with them. So you managed both to prove yourself wrong, and to bring me business. I suppose I should be thanking you... http://www.styleforum.net/cgi-bin....9;st=20
