They were a great pair. They sold for $1000 in the 1992 catalog. They were certainly high end shoes at the time.
$1000 for the calfskin or the alligator? If the latter then probably a better value then most nowadays.

When you look at the bidding in that auction, the seller and bidders aren't strangers with each other. Makes you wonder. Several bidders with >25% activity with this particular seller.
I once got into a BIG issue with a seller over something like this, which I noticed only after completing the purchase. I'm not even sure what got me to look into it...nobody forced me to bid what I did it just seemed off to me. Anyway, this is a good tip. Watch out for this type of bid activity.

exactly... seller is a scammer most likely. the odds of this being legit are slim to none.

edit: on further review, i am not sure this isnt legitimate. in this case, the bidders appear to have only bid on this item of the seller's just with more than one bid which makes the %s look high. The low feedback is a bit of a red flag but I suspect it's a legit auction and just a reflection of relative rarity / condition why the price shot up late in the auction. Hard to say with certainty on this one.

Thanks, I never knew it was a regency. I was into vintage shoes for awhile and found several pair over the years, never in my exact size though. Might pick up the hunt again after about a 10 year break...once I get on with some downsizing.

Any pictures of those you've come across?

In addition to a nice J&M Hand Made, the New Englander in (10.5 D) from Edwin Clapp is high on my grail list.
