Or perhaps as the seller says, if you want new Lobbs, buy direct . Though these are as good as new, "near perfect"
FWIW: I wrote back saying "thanks, but I think you misunderstood, I was just curious why they would have been resoled after three wearings . . . "
Here's the response, which seems a bit more pleasant in tone. I'm still experiencing a bit of cognitive dissonance between the "worn three times" and the "frequent" visits to the theater with the gravel path, but it is what it is . . .
Edit: Sorry, forgot the response. Here it is: well i had them re-soled so there as near perfect,
the theater which,
my husband and i go to quite often has a gravel path which make the soles look awful,and as i can get them re-soled i did......
nothing else to it.
hope this is more explanatory for you
Also, note that in response to someone else's inquiry the seller has now declared the auction to be "UK only". F'ing limey/paddy/jakey/taffy douchebags . . .
