They're expensive - rare shell - so I understand the request from the aspect of two invoices allows for you to more easily pay with two different methods/cards. But it seems like it would make it easier for you to contest a payment and screw over a buyer, right? You could claim you mistakenly paid twice?

I don't have a lot of experience with selling and I have no idea what the process is when a buyer fraudulently requests a refund. I feel like I've heard that as a seller you are pretty much guaranteed to lose, though. Anyone have thoughts?

The buyer is a SF user with not a lot of posting history but he has the right kind of posting history (the right threads for what he's buying, basically) and seems totally normal.

Ask for buyer feedback. Ship with a tracked method and get delivery confirmation.

Does seem a little strange that two invoices are required but that doesn't necessarily mean he's trying to rip you off. If a buyer is really adamant about stealing they will find a way to do it.

^ You could put on each invoice "...this invoice constitutes one half of the total sale amount for....".

Both of them are in barrie last.

Do you guys think it is redundant ?

There's such a great variety of shell models you could look for. How about a wingtip boot? A tanker? Even a 975 lwb...

Why doesn't he simply use however many credit cards he needs to add funds to his PayPal balance, and then pay you directly from the balance? Seems easy.

Good question, I'm pretty sure it's reverse split welt. I tried talking her into a flat welt, no luck =(.

I think you'll be safe. Just make sure you keep all the log that the buyer requested to seperate two invoices and ship with a tracked method. Paypal will ask for supportings from both ends if he really files a claim.

Whoa. I never realized a brass eyelet version of the Whisky LWB exists as well. I've always only seen mdubs' Brassvello.

I do have 975 and tanker.

Wingtip boot? Probably yes, but I pre-ordered the TO-TIE GUY snuff suede wingtip already. So maybe later.

Maybe I should see the boot in person and try them on before making the decision....

I have a question that I can't find an answer for in the archives.

I've gone through a few pairs of Aldens trying to get the sizing/last right and considering my feet (one with a collapsed arch and 1/2 size larger) I have found a 9.5 D trubalance to be pretty successful. That being said, I have a question regarding fit possibly varying between SOLE types. I currently have 3 pairs of size 9.5 Indys, and two of them (a kudu indy with the rubber sole and a pait of shell with a similar sized commando sole/welt) fit great and lace up very similarly but the other pair (Leffot natural cxl with a lower profile commando sole) fit a bit differently and don't lace as closely, as if they were a size 9. Assuming that they were not mislabeled, what could account for the difference in fit? The specific fit issue involves the 4th and pinky toe on the longer, flatter foot being squished when walking from either having less room in the toe box or my foot sliding forward differently. I do not know much about the manufacturing process but does anybody think it is possible that the difference in the sole construction and/or welt could account for a difference in volume in the boots? I really truly appreciate any thoughts You may have on this. Below is a photo of the kudu Indys that fit well and the Leffot Indys that are troublesome.
