    I came across the following pair of Greens online. Does anyone recognize the model name? http://cgi.ebay.com/ws....MEWA:IT They are too big for me, but the current price is certainly low. (The soles look like they've been worn more than "twice for less than 3 hours total.") Also, for what it is worth, another forum member I have corresponded with raised the possibility that they may not be real Greens. Bic

    They are Greens, and I estimate twenty or more years old. I have one pair numbered that low and the purchase date is lost in the mists of time.

    The sequential number is currently in the high 40,000s.

    Look like Green's made for Lobb, and then re-labeled as Greens, maybe for a sale, like the RLPL shoes?? Darby is a Lobb model, had a pair of those. The other details jive too.

    Could only have been worn once or twice, one wear on wet pavement = ten wears on dry in my experience.

    Any guesses as to what the big "S" next to the size/last information stands for? I was thinking perhaps it referred to the store for which these shoes were made but can't think of any that begin with S other than Saks.

    I disagree.

    I think the soles look exactly as though they were worn for 3 hours.

    In a rock quarry. In the rain.

    But otherwise, nice shoes.

    Take your pick: "sub-standard", "seconds", "sales-stock".

    They were rejects and the seller is very honest in stating that he had bought them in a sale. But with shoes and particular in a company with EG's quality control, the defects are probably very minor. I have bought shoes which were rejects; for the life of me, I cannot find the faults.
