I'd stay away - unless you already bought itHoping I could get some help legit checking these. Any help would be appreciated.
Ask the seller if s/he ever took the laces out and relaced them, because the laces aren't laced up in the direction of the factory default. The pair in question have both pairs laced to the right first then left. Should be laced out first then the medial side second for both pairs. So if s/he says that it was never relaced, that's a big red flag already.
But if the seller does say that it was relaced, then the toebox holes are mad slanted. Look at the lace holes on the pair on the right. The second row of holes from the bottom damn near slants downards - the entire design of the holes on toebox is slanted on that pair.
Also, the leather on the heel is really tumbled on this pair. Should be smoother with maybe a bit of wrinkle only.
And I don't know if this is just because it's a bigger size, but the tip of the Wings logo shouldn't extend that far forward. Maybe somebody with a size 11 can chime in on this part. Mines is a size 8 directly from Union, and the tip of the Wings logo on my pair doesn't extend that far forward past the vertical stitching by the lace holes.
