Alden 684--worn one time? Ebay Warning.

I wanted to alert forum members to what seems to be some misrepresentation in an ebay auction for a pair of Alden 684's.

this seller is listing a pair of Alden 684's as worn one time:

however, there are deep creases, black scuffs and fading on the side of the shoe--as well as a lack of the deep aubergine/eggplant tone you'd associate with Alden new #8 shoes. Also, the bottoms are painted black with no visible Alden logos.

The auction stands now over $200, and if any forum members are bidding wanted to raise these concerns (I have no interest in this auction personally: I am not bidding on this auction and don't know the seller).

Perhaps a more knowledgeable poster than I can answer what is going on with these shoes. Perhaps they were factory refurbished and worn once.

I bought a pair of Ferragamos on Ebay which were supposedly NIB. They did come in a box, with Ferragamo shoe bags, but they weren't new. The bottoms were painted I have no idea how old they are, etc. Point being you need to be really careful with shoes on Ebay. It does look like something is amiss with this pair of Alden's.

BTW I really like the shoes I bought, but it still bugs me that they weren't as advertised.
