    I'm considering purchasing this pair of used Park Avenues. The uppers look ok, but I'm not sure about the soles. Any estimates on how much life is left in these soles?

    I would say that those are going to need a resole within a few months.

    they are fairly heavily worn, I'd guestimate 70% gone, but how long they will last is all depends on how much walking you do, on what surfaces, in the wet or not, your walking style, if you allow them to dry out fully and naturally between wears etc etc.
