I would say they run 1/4 to 1/2 larger than sized depending on width.

Oops, I got a pair of FAM boots with a low offer too - 320 instead of 549. That's not bad for my first pair of FAMs. I hope they're not too large for me.

Nice boots (and great buy for $320) but the ones you got are 10.5 US and 9.5 UK. If you are a US 10.5, I think you need to go with a 10UK in these or 11US as she has listed them. I could be wrong but these may in fact be small for you then.

These would be a steal at $320 http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...5944&rd=1&rd=1

Who is the one with an offer on them? Is that you Brian? Come clean!

Thanks for the information regarding size. I've never bought Santoni before, so it's a little gamble either way.

Note though: the seller is wising up and relisting with higher prices and most probably will not accept these sort of offers anymore.

He is, I have been turned down twice now. The counter I have recieved was 440 and that was on shoes listed at 499.

procedural question: I've never "best offered", how does it work? Do you actually Bid low, or do you message the seller w/ a lowball offer and see if they'll bite?

Select the "best offer" icon, much like the "buy it now". Ebay walks you through the rest, this particular seller responded very quickly with a counter offer.

Some auctions have a 'buy it now or best offer'. You input your best offer and wait for a reply; I think sometimes there's an automated counteroffer/reject if they have a 'reserve', sometimes its manual. You can always offer a sum, but unless it's before bidding has started it's usually considered 'bad' form.

ok, so this is only if the seller as opted in to "best offer", right? Like if somone has a ridiculous opening price, w/ no bids in the last few hours of an auction, it would be rude to message them and say "I'll give you $50 if no one else bids"... correct?

'lowballing' is considered rude, particularly you make an offer that is way below market value, especially if it's way below the seller's estimation.

Well, they only say 'no', plus a whole load of expletives, but if you don't mind the risk of getting onto their list of 'blocked bidders' then you won't lose anything by trying

There were a pair of used RL monks on ebay last week, described as EG when they were most likely C&J. The seller admitted that this might be true but let the auction stand and was won by someone for over 200 smackers. I had made an offer (solicited by the seller) that reflected it's C&J'ness which was obviously much lower than the final selling price.
