Even if they are regular leather, NOS nettletons with those bags are easily worth $100.

I have no snipe software and actually timed it by feel after I saw that there were about 30 seconds left. I waited a while and confirmed my bid. I found out after the auction ended that I actually laid down that bid with one second left. I have missed in the past and effed up royally missing out on LHS etc at great prices. I want to wear these through patination and keep them a looooong time.

I would never have gone that high, so I'm glad I didn't bid you up any higher. Please report back when you get them.

try gixen.com for free sniping, you don't need to download software. Wow, $277...that seems like a big risk for a pair of shoes that may not be shell. I'm not sure I'd have paid that if I'd known they were shell.

I wouldn't be the first to pay such a sum for NOS calf or shell wingtips on eBay. I appear to be a secondary supplier for a certain seller who wins AE, Florsheim, BB and Alden shell and calf from me for under $150 and sells them to Euro market for $350-$500.

I have never understood the logic of sniping. It's one thing to wait towards the end of an auction to see if it's even worth putting in a bid, but bidding at the last second makes no difference at all. Maybe it's some kind of superstition but to me it makes no sense.

Depends on the bidders involved. Some folks will keep bidding in $2 to $5 increments until they're the the top bidder. They get outbid, then the cycle starts anew. Terrific for sellers.

Plus, a bid in the first day or two is a great way to guarantee interest from other buyers. Shows someone else wants the item, making it more attractive, and eliminates the hope the item will be relisted as a lower price.

As a seller, nothing makes me happier than a days-long bidding war. And those can be avoided entirely by sniping.

Point taken. I can understand waiting until the end of an auction to bid, but 1, 2 or even 10 minutes before the end of the auction seems good enough. I guess the answer is that people bid irrationally when they think they can still win even though they have already bid what they thought was their maximum. Sniping eliminates these irrational bids. The idea of timing a snipe to the second still seems silly though.

I like using sniping software because it takes a lot of emotion out of the process. If you bid 10 minutes before the end of the auction, it gives manual snipers time to adjust their bids accordingly. Suddenly, many of them will be willing to pay more. And then there's the original bidders to consider. Some folks take being outbid as a personal insult, and I'd rather not give them time to rebid.
