    These 6.5 E G&G "Hughes" are at my local thrift store, selling for $250. I'm not sure whether 6.5E denotes 6.5US or UK. I'm not sure whether there is tax on shoes purchased from a thrift store. If so, tax is 13%.

    Originally I thought they were unworn, until I took a second look over them. The toe of the right shoe has two scuffs on the toe. I'm not sure whether they would polish out, because I don't really know that much about what polishes out and what doesn't.

    Very minor scuffs on heel.


    I was originally going to buy and ebay, but after seeing the toe scuff I'm not sure if it is worth it.

    PM me if anyone is interested.

    If those were my size, I'd be all over it. Shoe trees alone would sell for over $100 US.

    I would be too! I was so disappointed when they were too small.

    sidebar - the soles are a pretty good indicator that they have been worn, lol. sick price though. especially with trees.

    Yeah, definitely. But I didn't look at the soles the first time I was in. I just checked the size, saw it was not my size, and left.

    Make sure you at least get a Sierra Nevada. That's a very generous gesture on your part worthy of more than a bid light.

    :cheers:

    You lucked out on the condition if those are from the warehouse sale. They don't look like they've ever been tried on.
