Ri-freakin-diculous! An S55 for $101k??? There's a new one on eBay (800 mi) for less than that. Maybe someone is laundering money.

The money laundering comment may be spot on.

No reason to ever pay 1600 for 16 pair of used shoes. You might get 200$ for the lot on Ebay.

Sorry to hear that - was looking forward to getting a pair of shoes since some of them were actually my size.

Ah well.
