For the record, I'm the seller of those C&J. chorse123 indeed did sell them to me for a song, knowing they were to go up for sale again; I actually suggested that Jamison should try putting them on eBay first. Then I gave it a few days to see if there surfaces a buyer who would make good use of them himself; in hindsight it didn't help that J's pictures and descriptions weren't very clear.
Now, as all eBay sellers, I would like
my items garner high final prices, thus making some profit. But the main reason I wheel and deal in this case, as already communicated to Jamison before the sale, is that I hadn't had many opportunities to handle C&J shoes. I was also curious, due to the relative infrequency with which similar fares float around, how well these could do on eBay. This explains my decision to have the auction format as is.

Are you saying those worth half as much as your MacNeils?
BTW, I would've bit on those had I not bought similar shoes from Yoox last week. I did manage to sell 2 pair of McNeils last month for ~$60 each before S&H though, so you might want to try that route.
