    Although I don't care much for used shoes...your investment was a reasonably small amount...good grab on your part

    I have completely lost my mind from reading SF. I think I reached my peak of insanity while reading the WAYWT...

    I wish he had more pics... did you ask about the interiors/soles/odors?

    But good price notwithstanding any hidden issues.

    You have reached and crossed over the edge of the slippery slope.

    Have I completely lost my mind??? I just paid $111 for a pair of USED shoes!

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...7507062&_rdc=1

    Granted, they are shell, but I would never have believed this could happen even a couple of years ago...


    Uh...I'd be careful. I would read that ad to mean that the color is cordovan, not that they are made from shell cordovan.

    Look at the heel. Calf leather has a full rubber heel. Cordovan has a combination heel (if that's what you call it). The shoes in the picture has the cordovan heel.

    The Cordovan is part number #4889.

    He's in the clear.
