    Howdy All!,

    I recently returned from another trip South of the Border which always includes some dress shoes shopping. At least my type of dress shoes...:)! I thought it would be fun to share a couple of the new acquisitions.

    ^^Cloth_guy5,
    we seem to have similar taste in "dress shoes." Very, very nice. May you long wear those new kicks and may you do so only in good health! ;)

    @eagle2250,

    Thanks for your kind words and I'm glad you enjoyed the photos. This may sound funny, but I'm in my fifties now and have honestly never owned a pair of shoes. I wear cowboy boots (dress, not $hi* kickers) with everything. As a kid I wanted to try a pair of shoes but dad and grampa looked at me with fire in their eyes!

    They're all very nice, and seemingly in good, pre-owned shape. Do you get them re-soled and/or refurbished before wearing them? Just curious, as I've never purchased pre-owned footwear, as I've enough trouble with well crafted, newly crafted.

    Sorry I missed your question. Just depends. I try not to buy anything I know will require that much work/money but sometimes you can get in a little trouble. The blue penny's were practically new, could not have been worn more than a few times.
    In all of them I try and do a cost/risk analysis before buying. Generally I try and get my used edward greens below $150. At that cost I am willing to take a chance especially if they are from a good seller and have good pictures. Also, I have a healthy enough rotation by now that most of my shoes only get worn 10 or 15 times a year. At that rate most should last my lifetime without needing to be resoled but I have a few that I felt it worth having even if in a few years I need to invest further. Generally if I am getting an EG with the shoe in solid shape and only minor wear to the uppers then I think it worth the cost at <= 10% of retail depending on the shoe.
