    I had this happen - I knowingly picked up a Florsheim shell beacuse it was an unusual model. It was like a dollar for the one shoe... they had it mated with some obvious wrong shoe. I had them look and offered a reward for the other shoe, but nothing doing. I planned to sell it just as that - one shoe - but I'm not sure if i still have it or if I got tired of it kicking around and chucked it :lol:

    In addition to the rolls vs creases others have pointed out you should be able to feel the difference between the two shoes. Not trying to say you should have known better, rather encouraging you to feel the difference as a good learning experience.

    Just found a pair of classic Blundstone boots (black with brown stitching and elastic insets) in size 11. Really good condition. Looks like someone wore them a couple times and then donated them.

    Let me know if you are interested. I am always looking for ties (2-3/4", 3", or 3-1/4") or can sell cheap. I can email photos.

    The color might actually be "stout brown," which is almost black, particularly if the stitching is brown.

    Ask the mods for help. I think that's the only way.

    Those are LA-esque finds. Wow! That Dual TT is a really great score.

    Ok, cool, I took a chance on it cause it looked "good". I got a Thoréns and a technics and both need new needles. It was cheaper buying this, and it sounds better too!
