    Ha! Quite a few guys on here would do that without even thinking about just giving the damn things to the other person.

    Did I just get a good deal on these C&J's? [​IMG]

    You will be forever remembered by him as the first one to rip him off.
    Some people won't bid on low/zero feedback listings, which is probably why you got a good deal.
    You got a great deal and yes, we all started at 0. I don't understand the hesitation to bid on new seller's items. I would much rather buy from a seller with 0 feedback than have a 0 feedback buyer bid on my stuff.
    Just wanted to follow up and say they arrived yesterday with a note and some fairly good packaging. Great seller, and Id be happy to go back. Sadly, the shoes are a bit too small, so if anyone wants them, PM me and Ill sell for the same price and just a few bucks more for the shipping. Ill have them in a future closet cleaning sale if no takers from here. They are a beautiful color and a steal.

    You think they'd fit an 8E UK Spoo?

    Sorry - just a pet peeve of mine, but the possessive form of 'it' is actually 'its', not 'it's' which is strictly a contraction for 'it is'.

    Listed as 9 1/2 D - if they're a tad too small I'd guess 9D?

    About a 9D US - which is an 8 UK, so yes.

    Some nice clunky EG brogues:

    Is that UK sized you think?

    the absolute craziest (ugliest) insane ridiculous pair of John Lobb bespoke shoes I have (or will ever see) seen. *only the strong stomached need click* You have been warned.

    I bought these John Lobbs. For some reason I'm convinced they're mens. What say you? There's no way that heel is over 3" right?

    Looks like the heels of the Lobb shoes in my thread - they are most likely mens, but the heels can be chopped down, thats for sure.
