^No, actually the only pictures uploaded were of his own personal pair. He's actually wearing them in the pictures. They looked new to me...and since he didn't state any conditon or damage to them, I thought they were brand new. The price of $95 seems like a lot for a pair of shoes I had to take a toothbrush too and bleach the laces(which didn't help). I see other german army trainers gong for much less. There are two new listings or these exact shoes...brand new and they are asking $95 shipped from Australia & Germany. Another listing has a used pair going for $40. I don't mind the worn in look, but I was looking forward to breaking them in myself...and thought in the mean time I could get away with wearng them semi-dressed up w/ a peacoat. They're too banged up for that. I've exchanged messages back & forth with the seller and he keeps telling me they look way better worn in and ignores my hints on a refund. I'm not asking to return them...I just think a $20 refund is more than fair for both parties. edit: And the fact he had 5 different sizes listed, also led me to believe they were brand new link to thread? did he in fact advertise them as deadstock?
