    Seems like he does not want money then. Willing to trade potential earnings for a lack of effort sounds so slacker in my book. Just the kind of seller I like, not the seller I strive to be. Offer on the way. Double digits motherfucker. LOL

    Yes indeed. You can find beautiful and well-constructed shoes for reasonable prices by avoiding the top end and the biggest names and concentrating on what you know to have some quality. Over the last few months on ebay, I have acquired: a pair of bicoloured brown Moreschi peccary cap-toes; a pair of black A. Testoni austerity brogues (which I am wearing right now); two pairs of Florsheim Imperial longwings (one in black pebblegrain and one in burgundy) and a pair of dark brown Loake Chelsea boots - all for $75 or less (some substantially less) and all pre-owned but in wonderful condition. And I missed out on a pair of black Cheaney desert boots that went for $50...

    Ha ha. I am certainly not saying that those who can afford to shouldn't, but people like me who have a budget, we need to be more tactical.
