The shoe trees and the "zippered shoe carrier" are less than 5 years old, probably crap he had lying around the house. The shoes are probably from 1980 or so, they are one of the worst designs Florsheim ever made. if they were worn they would be worth less than $20.00. I have seen tons of them at my thrift shop for $6.99. I would value the shoes in his listing at about $50-60. Also, even though I love florsheim, the seller deserves an E-SLAP for putting Lobb and Vass in his title. I mean come on, maybe you can sneak it into a Grenson listing, but these florsheim loafers???
