Has anyone seen the pre owned $900 whiskey LWB's on eBay? $900 buy it now or best offer. Thoughts on the asking price? High or just right? I feel it's a little high for a well used shoe. Even if It is rare shell. Rare for Alden's anyway.

I wish I could have gotten $900 for my pre-owned whiskey LWB. I think I got $600, max.

At $900 I'd consider selling my pair..!  Unfortunately, supply & demand tends to be the issue with any rare Alden shell.  Whiskey LWB was one of my grails, which I was fortunate to get a pair from Alden DC, but those still hunting might be tempted to pull the trigger. 

 

For $900 though, for me, it would have to be brand new in box... I'd say $700 range for that condition would be more reasonable for eBay considering the fees (9-10%); $600 range here on SF or Grailed

thats high (for me) but thats not going to stop anyone. if youre patient youll find what youre looking for at a solid price. prime example:

He says they have been worn 5 times. The sole tells a different story. I don't buy anything that the seller is clearly being dishonest about.

Was he also selling #8 tankers 10.5? I was on the verge but the new member status made me nervous.

He was. He had a picture of his name on a piece of paper with the boots, but not the cigar LWBs, so I asked him to send one. It looked convincing, but I guess it was photoshopped.

Not by me. He fooled me with the second photo - it was only because of @stevent and @NAMOR that the scammer was revealed as such.
