Florsheim Shell Cordovan NOS eBay Sales – Year in Review

I had the vcleat.com staff compile all the successful sales in 2016 of new old stock (NOS) Florsheim Shell Cordovan models. There were a few additional NOS listings which never completed and I excluded those. I don’t care about those. Just closed sales. So if you didn’t sell one of these pairs, put that coffee down. Coffee is for closers only.

There were 26 NOS Shell Cordovan pairs sold in 2016. That’s not a lot. Don’t see your size? Join the club. I haven’t seen a 11.5 D NOS ever. Also, there was just one pair listed as “wide”.

There was a wide range of prices but if the price was lower than $200, the pair went quick. Like minutes. Who are these people who constantly monitoring eBay for bargains? And how can they be stopped? I need a pair. Preferrably in my size.

I added details about each listing and a link back to the original listing on eBay. The link may or may not work after a period of time. eBay deletes listings after a period of time. I also made a few comments for each pair.

I expect more sales next year. Don’t disappoint me. You don’t want the 3rd prize. Remember – Always Be Closing.

  1. Thanks for this (and all of the other great information that you post). I’m curious to know how you find the length of time it took a listing to sell?

  2. Fantastic post! These are all amazing. But whaddya do with vintage shoes that are NOS? Display ’em? Treat ’em like an investment-grade collectible?

    Like vinyl LPs, I buy them to play them, so I guess these would be for someone else’s museum. 🙂

  3. David: Who are these people who constantly monitoring eBay for bargains?

    eBay shoe bargain monitor: How is this shoe unbought? The entire vcleat staff must be stuck in traffic waiting for today’s jumper to get off the bridge.
