    14 shoes in the past 45 days... and 8 of them were sneakers. The Kiton shoes he did have on live auction ended at $480-$550.

    The interesting thing is I e-mailed within a couple of hours of the listing going up, asking if he'd accept an offer for the lot. I heard nothing. Perhaps I should have included an £XXXX number in the e-mail.

    Yep. People ignore most of the time until you make a concrete offer.

    Crazy - I've seen it all now. No-one who knows JL would mistake those for kosher, and the brand is virtually unknown to the lay public. Who's going to buy them?

    I had a snipe ready on a pair of C&J ptb's and somehow the Gixen snipe software wasn't calibrated to the time change today, to my snipe was scheduled for 1 hour after the auction ended. I missed the shoes and I my snipe was higher than the final price. Damn.
