Is it possible this isn't for real? I'd buy a bunch in a second if it's legit

Aside from the low post count, it doesn't look like a scam. Still, I'd be a little hesitant to paypal $500+ overseas on the basis of that post.

Fellas..I sent an email requesting pricing on 5 pairs about 6 hours ago. I have yet to hear anything back from her. Stay tuned.

You aren't 7.5! Keep away!


Just kidding man. I'm waiting too. The story seems a little strange to me, but we'll see. They look like special orders, with the toe plates and everything. Very cool.

Lobbs run big on me Z. Most of mine are actually size 7.5. I'm as dubious as you are as to this offer, but hey, if it pans out, there are some sweet models!

The question is, are they 7.5 UK or U.S.?

That is an excellent question. Going strictly on the photos, I'm inclined to say 7.5UK. I have very low expectations for this working out, though.

Mr. Aportnoy,

Please do let us know if this works out. I've struck out on the RLPL Mackays and am in desperate need of shoes!

Will the Lobb 7.5 work if I'm 7.5UK/8 US in EG's?

Thanks!

I did hear back from the seller but I still don't ahve any particulars on pricing etc. These are definitely UK size 7.5E which sould make them work for folks sized US 8-8.5D. I'm excited but still not convinced anything will come of this.

Bill my friend, you're almost two days behind me on this. I've got a request in on 4 pair of the JLs and one only pair of the Berluti, the brown Norwegians.
