Seems like a good price. That sole really is odd though...

Looks like a perfectly serviceable shoe if the style is OK wit you.

Sorry to pee in the OP's cereal here, but are you SURE they're 100% legit? A couple of people have noticed that the sole appears to be odd, and the seller has only 8 feedbacks. Maybe I'm paranoid, but I've never gone too far wrong with assuming that everything sold on eBay is fake unless there is corroborating evidence to support otherwise, such as discussions known good eBay sellers in B&S.

Notwithstanding my concerns about the authenticity, I quite like the style of the shoe. If they are genuine PRLs, then that's probably a good price.

Good luck with it.

They look too well made to be fake. I'd give them a go but seller doesn't ship to the UK

He also has some oxfords that don't look bad. I'm curious also, but those soles look really funky. Good deal if it's real. Has anyone else ever seen soles like that?

Keep us updated! For me, I've had enough bad experiences with trying to buy stuff off ebay that I assume something is a fake/scam unless they have the original receipts/high feedback.

According to him, they are authentic. I PM'd him about them.

Yes they are authentic Polo Ralph Lauren Shoes. The styles are a few years old but classic and beautiful.

Interesting. I don't need a light brown captoe, but I was wondering if they are worth recommending to a friend? He trusts my opinion in terms of clothing, I wouldn't want to let him down.
