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.

How do you feel about spending money on non-essential goods during the Covid-19 crisis?

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
