I think they are absolutely gorgeous. I love the color, the style, everything about them. I just wish I knew which ones you are talking about.

I can see the pics now

These derby shoes look very good, though not sure why the sole is all dark brown. JL has mainly two lines, classic and prestige, they appear to be from the classic range

How much are you getting them for. If you buy them also get wooden shoe trees to put inside, it will resist creasing and prolong the life of your shoes

Prices vary greatly, on JL website going for 1265 to on ebay going for 600

Some other sources are mr porter, leathersoulhawaii, upper shoes. Shops sometimes run sales and offer discounts too

This is a classic style and a good quality and good looking shoe, you can invest in it. But please do not buy them unless you try them in person, sizing really differs from maker to maker, and shoe to shoe

Ditto that.

Especially not from:-

1- sausages244 - this guy thinks the "R" in the JL shoes he overcharges for stands for "RARE" - a lot of people have complained - he describes everything as "rare"

2- Ascot shoes - Karl is a nice guy, but he also sells rejects at extortionist prices, be very careful, once you have worn the shoe and discover the thing is a dud you're it, screwed, he will not take shoes back and his prices are not cheap.

You are better off waiting for a special sale or something, keep an eye on SF B/S forums, it is never a very long wait to find something suitable at reasonable prices.

They're seconds with minors defects but they sell them at an over-inflated price...

Put a few hundreds dollars more and buy the perfect ones..
