    Without seeing yours...that sounds like the condition mine were in when I sold them last last year. I got $550, I believe.

    Re the Whiskey LWBs: On the one hand, I agree with those higher end estimates above. On the other hand, many of us have seen a number of eBay listings for shoes that are in "excellent" condition and with "tons of life" in the soles. I would not take some of those pairs for free...

    Regarding the 2 number 8 boots....

    I personally prefer the NST, but the medallion tip is a more unique makeup and might not be as obtainable down the line...

    So sorry to hear that, they look very nice and even when you get your money back it will be hard to find rare shell at that price point.

    Looking great, B. Very sharp.

    I have the same shoe but sadly haven't worn it in a while. Thanks for the inspiration.
