    Lots are kind of a weird auction style. I've gotten some crazy good deals, but it always seems like they'd make more money selling everything individually. Maybe it's just a way to get rid of some of the pieces that wouldn't sell individually, or the sellers are just lazy.

    Imagine buying that whole lot and then finding out they don't fit :brick:

    It's the sort of auction that a 'flipper' will also be interested in.

    By taking the time to divide up the lot, take good photos, and list each separately a person could make little pocket change most likely.

    Quite the risk with used shoes. A lot of them are also terrible designs.

    Yeah - notice I didn't say I was going to take the time and take the risk. :D

    Well, thats why I looked. :) But the majority of the shoes are Weston, which sadly don't have the greatest resale value. If they were mostly Lobbs at $314 each....

    Spoo, thank you for the Saphir tip. I'm tempted to phone them and ask to collect my order in person; I'm rarely far away from them
