Not sure how asking for $600 is reasonable when the same shoes are listed on the web site for $360 USD. Also if I remember correctly all the Gold Museum were an extra 15% off a few weeks ago.

Not sure if the last is new, but the shoes are which is a good sign as there was speculation that they were closing down.

BTW I hate that last.
According to their IG is elongated like most Italian lasts. Would like to see a comparison against other lasts of them. I recently took a photo to compare two other lasts from two other makers... Italians really like long lasts.

Carmina Simpson in 9UK vs Santoni (don't know the last) in 8.5 UK and yeah, although the Santoni looks "bigger" it's just the volume that is bigger, width is about the same.

Not sure if you completely read the post but I said I was open to reasonable offers. If you want to compare their website to my listing more power to you. I'm not saying I'm offering a deal of a lifetime and by all means purchase your pair directly from Vass, in fact I urge you to if you can find your size. Don't even know why you bothered to mention the 15% off? That was a promo from a few weeks ago. Perhaps you're suggesting I should run a promotion as well? Try to compete with my competetor?

Please troll elsewehre, as I am just trying to sell my shoes for anyone who has a reasonable offer.

Well If I'm being honest I was suggesting that your are trying to take advantage of someone who might not be aware of the current price for this pair of shoes.

Buying a product at retail and trying to sell it for several hundred more then you paid for it because you got the last of a certain size is more or less scalping and its generally frowned upon. I would say it's even worse when you are using a community forum to do it.

It's somewhat expected that people on ebay and craigslist are going to be douche bags.

Bloody hell; the guy has made a rather reasonable observation about the price differential between what you are offering and a new pair from Vass. But you fly off the deep end and label him a 'troll'? What is the world coming to?

Yeah, obviously you are free to charge what you like but using a community forum to price gouge members is in poor taste, imo.

The same could be said for anyone shopping anywhere, online or retail. You shop at your own peril. That being said these are an mto pair purchased from shopmehra, so listing it for "several hundred more than I paid for" is quite a profound rational. I've actually listed the pair below my original purchase price and even mentioned twice that I was open to offers below the listed price.

If you think I'm price gouging, I'm more than happy to show a receipt of my purchase.

I saw your response above... I think all you had to do was offer that simple detail in your initial reply instead of immediately jumping down @Potatoe throat and reverting to name calling.
