    Beyond the 2 for 250 sale now, Will there be any upcoming sales pertaining to the normal seconds that aren't close outs? Coulda swore I saw something upcoming I just don't remember when.

    I was able to snag a pair of these today!

    I can't wait to wear them on Election Day, Veterans Day, 4th of July, etc...

    My other pair were the hard to find "Holiday" saddle oxfords.

    Wait'll the TSA see these kicks [​IMG]

    What purpose would I have to make this shit up?

    And no, I don't see how this is any of your business, but I have better things to do with my time then flip shoes on eBay. When you calculate the fees, shipping, the time to package and ship, and the time dealing with bullshit buyers, you make what $15-20 an hour? My time is worth more than that.

    Your link is for items currently for sale, not items previously sold. Also, what I am challenging is your assertion that seconds regularly sell for $250 on the Bay.

    Actually if you click on the actual item you'll see that they are sold.

    No, it's for sold items. And I didn't say that. You said a certain forum member here routinely flips on eBay and to check his items. I said that seller marks his items up almost double. Read.

    Just received my Summit Ave from the J'ville outlet. I used the 25% off coupon with a breast cancer donation. I thought about picking these up when they were a webgem a few months ago but for the frequency that I'll wear them I couldn't justify the price. But at seconds price with a coupon I figured what the heck. Anyone remember how much these went for when they were a webgem? I think they are just Macneils, right?

    I think I read they were priced the same as the Broadstreets, so $345?

    You're new, but we're generally pretty civil in this thread. You made an assertion, which I challenged as untrue. It was not intended as a personal attack on you. Responding that you never made the assertion and that I should "read" is inconsistent with the quotes above and more confrontational than you need to be.

    Let's go over the facts.

    1) You said a certain seller flips seconds on eBay and that Troilus should check his items.

    2) I said that seller marks up 100% over cost.

    3) You said you found it hard to believe anyone would buy them if he was doing it.

    4) I said he was doing that and that people were indeed buying them.

    5) You said "bullshit." (Nice on the civil part by the way)

    6) I provided a link to show that my Gatsby example was indeed true.

    One of us used quotes and one of us had to "paraphrase." Enough said.

    Forgive my ignorance, but what is a wheeled edge?

    I love the color. Interestingly, it looks similar to the dark cognac shell I have from another maker.
