Seller is asking around $150. Does this seem fair for a pair of AE leeds in shell? (I'm new to shell so I don't know how much use is left)

These seem lightly worn. Perhaps a negligible foot impression. If these are your size, it's a good price as you will be able to wear them for many years. In shell, as these are, it's an excellent shoe with current retail well over five hundred.

Looks like a good price. Ask seller for a pic of the interior sole to ensure there isn't any internal damage.

$150 is basically a fair price for AE shell in very good condition. barely used, seller could get more, like $200 - $250.

in meh condition, more like $100 - $150

basically don't worry about. if it's exactly what you want and the condition is good, the difference between $150 and $125 is irrelevant. I've come to realize that "fair price" depends greatly on how much you want item X, and that differs for everyone.

if the $25 is important to you than then don't buy anything.

I got a pair of shell Leeds in good shape for around $110 and I felt like I made out like a bandit. They're some of my favorite shoes. I wouldn't feel at all bad paying $150, although you should probably get pics of the insole just to make sure it isn't beaten to hell.
