    Great price.

    Argh, shome shite just bid on it. BIN was £85 for those who are curious - seller might still accept it.

    Mine arrived yesterday and I'm getting it fitted on Tuesday. Took a while to have made but is well worth it. Quality is very high. Smell is a bit of a "love or hate" scenario. I'm definitely in the "Love" camp [​IMG]

    Will post some photos up soon.


    I was thinking about getting one.. I see he's increased his BIN from his previous auctions [​IMG]

    Seller rates this a 9/10. Anyone disagree? Link. I'd hate to see an 8. [​IMG]

    If I were selling these, Id call them a 8 at best out of 10.

    seller is a senior member here and I've never had a problem with anything I've bought from him. It is hard to see a rating of 9 but the pictures are detailed and tell the story.

    I just saw those and thought the exact same thing. I think an 8 is would be incredibly generous. That type of stuff really turns me off to sellers.

    I believe a seller has an obligation to give an accurate and honest description that is not contradictory to the pictures... [​IMG] But you're right, at the end of the day, a buyer needs to look at the pics and judge for themselves. I've heard of shoe trees, but I doubt the previous owner of those shoes has. [​IMG]

    A good BIN for a pair of suede Vass including trees - though judging by the photos they may have been resoled.
