I'm not looking for highest and best price, I just want to take the edge off my recent purchases and would like to get them to someone who would use them. It would be a great purchase for someone looking to quickly have a range of nice shoes, but I am also mindful that anyone crazy enough to have 12+ dress shoes is likely to have particular tastes. Condition and style run the gambit from staple dress to boots to casual. Some in great shape, others used often; only one (black shell Indy--worn the most) is in need of immediate re-crafting.
Thank you in advance for your input.


There must be something wrong with the other 2 dudes that responded. They forgot the key question: What size are you?

 

And, GULP! to the boots Saz just posted :bounce2:

That is correct, and during the corporate sale the price was crazy good. But I don't care for the 240 last .....

These things are ridiculous! In the relatively short time I've had them, they've been through a 2 day Brazilian Jiu Jitsu/Standing grappling seminar (which thoughtfully was held outdoors in a gravel pit), two seperate weekends resulting in 56.5 miles on the Appalachian Trail, camping a different weekend, visited the Atlantic Ocean, Lake Erie and Lake Ontario, mowed my lawn 20+ times, cut an entire winter's worth of wood and are begrudgingly preparing to leaf blow the yard for the first time this fall...yet all it takes is a quick brushing and they look almost as good as new.

Right now they're on their 4th wearing since Friday. They don't get to sit for long.

 

Looking good Ben. They are obviously taking good care of you!

^Nice Ultimate Indys Mike! I wore mine today along with my RRL low-straight stillwater wash denim jeans, RRL western cotton shirt and RRL ranch hand jacket. I RRLed it up today!

What denim jeans are you wearing?
