    yeah these WERE all over ebay mid-late last year.
    interesting that they're apparently nowhere to be found now.

    Does anyone know what they retailed for? and the average price they were being sold on ebay for?

    I think I read somewhere it was about 500-600 new?

    Probably due to end of season sales...

    I'm all for the Buckshot Brogue, but you're not steezing right unless you've got the buckshot goon hand.

    I don't understand all of the love for these shoes. They look like you shot yourself in the foot.

    +1. First reaction: Ah, that's different! Considered reaction: Not in a good way.

    I can't see myself ever wanting or wearing those. If you like the look, why don't you just DIY? It would be really easy to shoot each shoe with a round of buckshot. That would probably save you a lot of trouble and money if you can't find them easily.

    Unfortunately city living makes it difficult to justify owning a shotgun. At least in certain Canadian ones. If you did go that route, I can imagine you'd end up blasting the whole front off!! Alternatively, I guess you could punch out various sized holes, but then you'd need to put another layer on the inside. Unless you wanted increased ventilation! Hah

    I paid £295. That was full retail from G&H.

    I imagine heating up some buckshot pellets and "branding" the shoes would achieve the desired look and feel. However, thrifting some leather shoes to get the hang of the application would be advised before doing that to some $300+ shoes [​IMG]

    Should've added (for the benefit of those who haven't read my earlier post) I paid this price when the shoes first came out!

    I must confess I don't find myself reaching for the shoes that often, but they are well made and worth having IMHO. They have character and yield compliments whenever I wear them.

    If I do end up getting my hands on a pair, there's no doubt I'll have them for years to come.

    Just finished up with the shotgun (actually branded with ends of drillbits to get a beveled effect)

    Still want the real thing though!

    Why thank you Spoo. And it only took a half hour or so.
