    Potentially nice pair of US 10 JM Westons starting at $200 with no bids at 10 hours, but the add is a little...suspicious. I'd certainly ask for more pics of the sole.

    Seller refers to these in his sub-title as "HUNT-DERBY" which is the model 677. They are actually the Double Sole Split-Toe Derby model 598. For some reason the seller has not made that change to his new listing or explained that point so I would definitely be a little suspicious.

    If I remember correctly, he will take off VAT when shipping to the USA (very tempting).

    Crockett & Jones black punch cap bals on 360 last in size 12UK. Marked as "subs". Ebay seller is sausages234. Opening bid of $305.

    Dr. Z - sausages234 doesn't take off VAT, but I think retailtherapy4all does. Heres another listing by sausages234 of a C&J black calf plain toe bal on the 360 last. Size UK9E. Marked as subs. Opening bid of $305.

    Is it just me, or are these subs prices not really that much better than Pediwear's prices for 1st's?

    It's not just you. I can't believe the prices some people will pay for C&J subs.

    The thing with the two C&Js that I posted is that they are on the 360 last which is not very common. Pediwear does sell the plain toe bal on the 360 for £246, which is £50 more than the ebay listing (and also sells a wingtip bal on the 360 - the Wigmore - for £255). Pediwear doesn't sell the punch cap bals.

    Interesting find. Vintage Abercrombie & Fitch shoes. Made in Italy. I believe they are handmade due to the sizing writing. Also, that norvagese welt gives it away. Unfortunately, size 10.5B. Link [​IMG]
