Nothing much, this guy just wanted to tell the people here he's probably going to get these shoes. I just wanted to tease him by pretending to want them too

hahahahaha in retrospect, it wasn't too bright of me to post this auction that hasn't even ended yet... I jumped the gun! Opened myself up to snipers...

yeah, exactly, I am waiting for one auction to end as well. I am quite sure that if I would post it here some extra bidders will join the auction... and we can't let that happen

I thought you had bidders remorse and wanted other people to outbid you. Couldn't think of a better way to do it than posting here.

not that this auction is too much under-the-radar that other interested parties wouldn't have known about it anyways.

I think some people are not so wise if it comes down to bidding. I have seen people bidding 500USD for an 800USD (retail) shoe. I mean, come on, usually these shoes are already sold for less than their retail value. Let's say the 800USD shoe is usually sold for 700USD, then you only have a 200USD profit, which is less than 30% of the original price
. I only buy things on Ebay if they are reduced by at least 50%!

Very accurate prediction! They went for $158.50... alas, I was out-bid.
