Are my boots horrible? Had hoped for more bids.

boots here Worn max 4 times. Were too tight for my calf! Bought a few yrs ago.

sorry!

Imagine you got a ferret and fashioned it into footwear.

Actually imagine John and Edward from X factor made into shoes.

Sorry!

They look a bit like they are falling apart (even though you can tell they aren't).

No on ever bids of really cheap boots/shoes

if they were from a decent shop or cost a certain amount then specify that in the listing - otherwise I would think 4.99 is normal for cheap plastic boots

Ooh harsh comments! They aren't that bad, well i didn't think they were. sad

How do they look like slippers?

I think it may be the size , pretty big size 8 for the majority...

Size 8 is too small for trannies and too big for most women - that could be an issue.

I had some boots I thought were lovely. DH hid them and I asked why and he told me they were vile. I asked a few friends and they confirmed they assumed I had been given them and were wearing them out of guilt or something blush

They are minging new let alone second hand. You was robbed.

o bless you! grin

It's not the size, I've sold quite a few things in size 8/42 and they go really well. It's the boots tbh, they're not that nice. Also I think people search by brand, so unbranded stuff will get far fewer hits. I sold a pair of DUO boots worn only a few times for £50 a couple of weeks ago.

Also I tend to start at 0.99, I think overall you get more interest and a better final price, plus you don't pay listing fees.

I think they look nice but I'm not an 8. Are they a mentionworthy brand? Are they leather?

piprabbit Sun 08-Nov-09 00:34:15

That's what I was thinking Mspontipine.
I'm a size 8 - but wouldn't bid as I'd assume they are supermarket plastic boots which probably only cost £15 new....

Probably completely wrong, but there's so little info in the listing I don't think I'd be tempted.

i'm a bit tired and read that as boobs!!! blush

i dont like the boots but i can see that they would appeal to some.

maybe lower the start price?

glad its not pics of your boobs though grin

I would mention the brand.

They are hideous too and quite unfashionable at the mo.
Sorry.
