    i'm working w/ someone who might be able to secure JM Weston shoes. probably not a big lot but "some". my question: is there a decent demand on here for JMW? i look on ebay and there aren't hardly any ever. i would probably be paying more than i normally do but don't want to if there's not a demand anywhere.
    thx

    I'd buy them if they were in my size, for the right price. I used to check for westons on EBay, but there were so few (and then only in small sizes (7, 8, etc.), that I stopped. There seem to be far more Lobbs and Edward Greens than JM Westons.
    FWIW, of some Weston auctions I've seen, I have been amazed at how few bids they get -- how shoes that would be $450 and up retail only get 4 or 5 bids and go for $100 or less. Granted, some have been lizard skin or gator (which would mean they are $1000+ retail), and thus less broadly appealing, but still.

    I'd be interested for the right price too. Westons on ebay are few and far apart.

    They seem to get much less press than lobb and the like. Maybe i'll tell my sister, who works in PR, to get in touch with them.

    I don't own any but they do look very nice. I'm sure people on this forum would be interested.

    thanks for the replies. i wouldn't want to overextend and end up eating some pairs, just wanted a feel of the demand

    I'll happily buy almost any Weston in a US 9.5 - assuming a reasonable price point. I have 2 pair now, and they are very fine shoes. Finding them in the US is difficult - especially at a good price.

    They are very rare and will probably sell more quickly than just about any shoe brand I can think of, depending on the price of course.

    I've never sold new ones, only used, but the pairs I've had have always sold immediately.

    I'd be interested as well--US size 7.5. Their split toe (demi-chasse?) I find particularly appealing.

    I have never seen a Weston in person. If anyone has some pics, please post. Since I am inflicted with Imeldaitis, Lance, you can probably count me in for some 11's.

    Their website has good amount of their basic models: http://www.jmweston.com. Their French site has few more models displayed. As a side note, for those listing their size, Weston sizes vary by model/last. I'm a US 9 and have shoes in 7.5, 8, and 8.5.

    Are they the original Westons or the new M. Perry models? Just my opinion, I don't favour the new Perry designs very much. They look neither Weston, nor the Italian style that they are trying to imply.
