    Retail is appx. $1250 plus tax. I'd give them an 8-9 and I'm super picky. Awesome shoes.

    It's my size ....
    And I must get some black shoes too.
    Well, if it doesn't sell, I'll ask if the seller is willing to cut a deal. Good that it includes the trees too.

    I would buy those without hesitation as, with care and resolings, they will outlast nearly anything else on the street.

    I am not at all familiar with JL - I've never been the biggest fan, though some of their classic styles are very nice. However, I have to say that only some of their models (JL Paris?) have visible nails in the heel. I really like nailed heels, and I was wondering why most JL models have the heels they do. What is their construction? Do they still have hand-nailed heels and the nails simply aren't visible?

    RTW are Goodyear welted, albeit by a man using a machine rather than by hand. As for nails in the heel, I've never torn the lip of rubber off the heels of mine to check.
