Thank goodness I'm not in SF today. I would have probably walked over there during my lunch break

I paid a little north of that after tax for my pair. After eBay takes it's cut, the seller may not even recoup his entire out-of-pocket investment.
Absolutely beautiful boots! Plaza last? I can't wait until I have a pair of shell plaza boots to call my own. I put in my deposit for the whiskey plaza wingtip boot at Epaulet, but that's still at least a year off.
Exactly. After the eBay and PayPal fees, and the included free shipping the seller would likely be losing money. Frankly, these shoes are indeed quite rare and unavailable for the forsee-able future like the seller says. If I were wanting a pair I'd snap those up.
(I put the link above to the one I'm talking about, so people don't think I'm referring to the "Barrier last" listing which is a different seller).

Looking to start my search for the Chukka. I won't be using these for dress. So the color is the question, I've seen both the Whiskey and Cigar in this model, both look smashing, wondering how the Ravello might look. Ravello just might be the most versatile but wonder if it has that Wow factor? Of course the #8 looks fine too but maybe a touch dressy for my wardrobe. I don't have to wear suits anymore. Jeans, chino's blazers ...Thoughts cousins?
i know leather soul did this shoe once and it was the Leydon last (which i hope this is). but the LS version did not have a storm welt as this does, and I can't find any other store that did this model, let alone with a storm welt.
Also thought I'd post a copy of the insert Frans Boone sends that describes return policies, which seem pretty good to me. This may be on their site somewhere, but I haven't looked.
I agree, they won't sell. He has only 26 feedbacks and in all but one he was the buyer, not seller. He doesn't know what he's doing.
