    I don't know much about the shoes but do you realize that the seller is charging $58.00 for shipping?

    Really, I've also been watching those and they ship for $15 on my screen.

    the things that concern me are the sizing an the fact that they look less like suede and more like that horrible smooth nubuck you see on footjoys.

    I was interested in them as well and did a google search. Looks like they usually sell for around $50-$75 used but that's about all I found. I'd have to agree with you on the suede, it looks kind of smooth and lifeless.

    Yeah, it sucks when you find a hidden gem on ebay and then someone goes and advertises it to a gillion other people.:tounge:

    Could be true, but I read somewhere that duffles are usually a bit more "baggy", they arent really supposed to be slim fit.

    We'll see.

    THIS is what I like about buying & selling great shoes. I know that only maybe 5% of what I like is gonna be in my size. However, knowing that I can re-sell them lets me to get more acquainted with some real cool stuff. Ya don't know sh*t unless you've actually handled them. Good for research purposes & for forming informed opinions, i think.

    By the way, my "party couch" from college is a dead give-away! Great old thing and full of memories... and maybe some other stuff as well...

    Great, thanks - just wanted to make sure I wouldn't make them lighter than I wanted.
