    I received a 2nd chance offer from ebay that looks legit. I was pipped to the post on a pair of Grenson Masterpieces by a buyer who also seems legit (and has good taste) 130 100% positive feedback. Now in the 'cold light of day' the offer is 118 sterling plus shipping from UK to HK. The shoes look nice and are supposedly 300 retail. I read Jcusey's review of this line of shoes which seems positive - anybody else any opinions please?

    I can't offer specific advice without a link to the auction showing the specific shoes, but I own 2 pairs of Grenson MP shoes and the retail price of 300 pounds is about right, given their quality. Not as well-made as John Lobb Paris RTW, but they're right up there with my C&J Handgrades and better than my Alden or AE shoes. One of my Grenson's is my favorite pair of shoes because of the styling.

    It also seems like a legitimate first buyer who backed out. I would still suggest checking out both buyer and seller on www.toolhaus.org.

    Sounds very fishy. Make a lower offer and see what happens.
