They're damned expensive, but they are great-looking boots.
In terms of styling, they beat the heck out of anything that AE currently offers - I have no idea why they discontinued the style.
This looks like a fraudulent auction. They're not New In Box, as alleged in the condition section of the item specifics. They're recrafted (you can tell by the mark on the sole, and what appears to be heavily sweat stained insoles and creases on the vamp), and the fine print admitting that. I'm surprised that somebody would try to pass that off as new by selecting "Condition: New: In Box" and then burying "Newly Refurbished , Better Than New!" in the fine print. (Okay, I'm not really surprised that this particular seller would do that).
Worth no more than $125 (the cost of recrafting), in my opinion. And even then, I wouldn't buy them. If they were worn out and then recrafted, they'll be too broken in for somebody else's foot. They're only worth $125-200 to the original owner.
