to be a bit suspicious about this ebayer?

I have a pair of shoes on ebay. They are red stilettos, ankle straps, zips; look a bit kinky.

I got a message for a buyer saying 'she loved them and they were exactly what she was looking for for her night out, and whether I would have some photos to see how they looked on etc etc xxx'

I offered to take some pictures, and she said 'that would be fab thanks xxx'

I am desperate to sell them, so didn't think much of it, put them on, took a few pictures and sent them.

Didn't hear back for a couple of days so I asked her is she got the photos. She said, 'yes, thanks I will have a look xxx'

And that was it.

Maybe I just have a dirty mind, but AIBU to think she was never going to buy my shoes?

DSHathawaysLover Mon 05-Feb-18 21:36:15

This has happened to me blush I didn't know it was a 'thing' either, til a friend told me.

What?!confused She got turned on by looking at your feet in kinky shoes pictures? Or have I missed something?

Ginkypig Mon 05-Feb-18 21:41:32

Yep. You should have told her that you would need to charge £10 per pose for the inconvenience grin

DSHathawaysLover Glad I am not the only one!

LloydColeandtheCoconuts He's a foot fetishist. And not a woman.

aaah the innocence !

IamAporcupine Mon 05-Feb-18 21:51:36

WellThatsATurnipForTheBooks you know, when I was taking the pictures there was a 10% of me that was a bit hmm but as I said, I was desperate to sell them!

MsHomeSlice Mon 05-Feb-18 21:53:05

did you paint your toenails nice and purty??

DearMrDilkington Mon 05-Feb-18 21:54:55

I will never understand foot fetishes, there's nothing sexy about feet.

Don't give up op, maybe he'll she'll still buy them to sniff.

IamAporcupine Mon 05-Feb-18 21:56:29

DearMrDilkington agree! plus you should see the state of my feet!

WellThatsATurnipForTheBooks Mon 05-Feb-18 21:56:39

It would have been funny to have got some hairy legged bloke to put them on for the photos and see what he she said grin

Smeaton Mon 05-Feb-18 21:56:56

What size are the shoes? Could do with some red stilettos.

MsJuniper Mon 05-Feb-18 21:58:06

Have you ever seen the dirty shoe ads? Usually really crappy old trainers, "well used" is normally the phrase but they make a point of saying they will be cleaned in accordance with eBay regs.

IamAporcupine Mon 05-Feb-18 21:58:46

I can send you pictures too grin

IamAporcupine Mon 05-Feb-18 21:59:54

MsJuniper never seen that shock

MsJuniper Mon 05-Feb-18 22:00:53

Like these for example, although if you search "well used" you'll find lots of stilletoes etc too. "Worn every day of summer"... ugh

I don't know why this fascinates me so much but I can assure you I am neither a buyer nor seller of such items!

DivorceNovice Mon 05-Feb-18 22:01:19

Haha! I put two pairs on gumtree and had the exact same response from seemingly two different people but asking same thing...can you try them on and post pictures please. I just said they were packed away and I was not home at the time but they were welcome to actually come and have a look at them. Never heard back.grin

LipstickHandbagCoffee Mon 05-Feb-18 22:05:43

Oh my giddy aunt,I never knew it was a thing. I reaching for my pomander

LloydColeandtheCoconuts Mon 05-Feb-18 22:06:46

Thanks UpstartCrow grin I’m a bit slow. It’s been a long day.
I reckon I could cure anyone of a foot fetish though. Mine are rancid.

IamAporcupine Mon 05-Feb-18 22:06:59

MsJuniper Ugh, why did I search!

Found this, wtf are crush clips??

Also loads of people sell used socks for the same reason. It’s an actual thing. People (and by people I mean some men) are weird.
