Too many red flags for me to take the chance.

Pay through paypal, using a credit card. Dispute through you CC company if you get ripped off. I just wish someone would list a Vale in my size!

amerikajinda, I hope you enjoy your shoes. I saw them, but decided not to bid.

Thanks! And thanks for not bidding... first time I haven't been out-bid in a long time... and my first pair of Fatte a Manos!

I have no problem with used shoes, and I know they're shell cordovan, but this seems nuts to me.

"Extremely used"

I don't look at bid histories much, but what does it mean when one person keeps bidding it up in regular increments:

In that one, cactusroot had put in a max bid of more than $172.50. In order to see what that max bid was, unclehanz kept bidding incrementally up but he never reached the max bid because cactusroot is still on top. He could've saved all that time by just deciding that the most he would pay is $170 and putting that in as his bid.

Oh, I see, it's in order by amount rather than time. It looked like cactusroot hadn't bid until the last second.

Indeed. I was interested in it as they're my size, but then I saw the width measurement.

The seller seems to have adjusted the posted width of the shoes. Someone must have pointed out the mis-sizing. Seller has good feedback, but unfortunately shoes not my size.

Cactus root is a shmuck. I got more pictures and for shell they were maybe worth $50. The autioin was aat $10 until the last half an hour.

Strange, pair of John Lobb bespoke boots. Never worn.

I wonder, did the customer become a late customer, before the shoes were completed.

Great looking pair of used size 9E (42) Mantellasi loafers. At $60 with a reserve but they look like they've hardly had a full day of wear... http://cgi.ebay.com/SUTOR-MANTELLASS...QQcmdZViewItem edit: hmm seller has a pair of black that are worn even less but they are confused on the sizing.... http://cgi.ebay.com/SUTOR-MANTELLASS...QQcmdZViewItem
