Cigar Indy
Color 8 Wingtip Boot
CXL Indy
Choco Tanker

These are all for weekend / casual wear from fall through spring. All are on commando.

I would say it depends on what other shoes you have that aren't boots. If you have wingtip shoes then the wingtip boots become less of a necessity, if you have split toe shoes then the tanker becomes less of a necessity.

 

Just from the information you gave I'd say sell the CXL indys and keep the rest (since you have cigar indy's already).

  • easiest to replace
  • redundant

I WAS following the cigar indy auction until I read this a couple of minutes ago. beware, this seller is a crook. i asked the seller for the style number earlier in the week and received numbers that don't match. 
needless to say, i will not be bidding.

thanks @BurntPockets
 for saving me a fraud claim and a huge headache.

Thanks for the heads up. I was seriously considering bidding as I love those boots and missed the boat.facepalm.gif Anyone know of a similar make-up that's still being made? Leffot Naval boot is the closest I've seen, I think (though I'd love a commando sole, since I live in the land of nearly perpetual snow and slush).

Thanks DV! Mine might be ever so slightly snug, but no different than my shell WT boots. And these do give more than those.

Agree with Namor's hierarchy for consideration to sell. I have a pair of cigar NSTs that I wish to sell because I've discovered they are slightly tight fitting for me. Need to coach myself on selling on ebay since I've never done it in the past.

 

Cheers!

@Rishi Kakar What size? I'm sure you'd have a lot of potential buyers here... ;)

I would keep the #8 wingtip and the Choco Tanker, personally.

I would try to sell on the Marketplace, first, as well.

By marketplace you mean Ebay or a marketplace on styleforum?

Too bad they're not 8.5D... Yes, as @tifosi suggested, i'd try to Style Forum Marketplace before Ebay to avoid the fees
