    It's a tough read for sure.

    Why on earth is the BIN the same as the starting bid? :confused: Why not just do BIN?

    because there are people who might be silly enough to do the starting bid...

    Seller calls them a US 10 but I bet they're an EU 10 - almost 13" long.

    Not even an EU 10. An ITALIAN 10. Probably 1 1/2 sizes up to US size... 11 1/2.

    That makes sense - I have an old pair of Costume National boots that are in Italian 8 and they fit US 9.5

    In days gone by you could only achieve international visibility by listing an auction- so most people would list a BIN with auction starting price a penny cheaper.
    Not sure if that rule still applies.

    No mystery here. Bidder A***k lost the first auction with a high bid of $720. 90 minutes later, he was more determined (and willing to pay more) to win the other (last) pair of Lobbs. He was much more aggressive and went up to $900 this time. AND... LOST once again. To a totally different buyer.

    Tough luck for this fella. It feels like crap to come in 2nd 2 times in a row. If only...
