    I'm selling my pair of Carmina double monks on the Simpson last. The shoes are used less than 3 times and are in mint condition. They feature metal toe taps worth $35.

    The shoes needn't further introduction. I bought these from Gentlemen's Footwear and have included their picture display picture in this listing. They are the exact shoes that I'm selling. Albeit redundant, I've included a picture of my shoes as well as a picture of the soles to prove that they're in mint condition.

    Maker: Carmina
    Size: UK8 (standard width)
    Last: Simpson
    Style: 10003 (double monks)
    Leather: Dark brown suede
    Sole: Leather sole with metal toe taps
    Included: Original box + dust bags
    Price: $300 $275 + PayPal fee + shipping cost

    Thanks.

    How are these mint condition if worn? I can see the soles are scuffed.

    Thanks. I never stated they were unused. They are used, but no more than three times. From what I understand "mint" can refer to the condition of used items as well and I've seen several listings with used items described as mint as long as they're in almost new condition. The scuffing on the soles doesn't impede the functionality, so I would dare to say that these are as in new condition. But since there are scuffs on the soles, I've reduced the price considerably compared to the retail price.

    Anyways, that shouldn't bother you in any case as I'm fully transparent in the listing where I've explained that they're used three times.

    Thanks for the further explanation. I guess I just have different expectation when someone says mint. I think the term refers to money coming from the "mint," i.e. in the same condition as from the factory. No harm no foul, as you say.
