Yea I know. At least the guy offering them said that he had hem professionally conditioned but then again what really is professional? I bet that many of us can polish and recondition better than a "professional" unless it is a high end professional. Reselling probably would be tough because here are few enough who wear a size 15 but only the smallest amount are narrow. And then who of them would pay for this high level of shoe. Chances are slim . There is a return policy which could help or Lobb said that they will visit my area in a few months and could evaluate relating them with a last done for me if there are only some more minor changes needed. Maybe it will work. I'm going to take the advice from you guys and look at what price I can negotiate then. Thanks.
