    lol dude im not giving them away

    yeah but asking people to pay more than you did

    Yes, you can still sell them.

    THIS thread had a similar query.

    tbh even the original price i doubt people will pay on here but thought id test the waters.

    But you would like to sell them for more than you paid? It probably still counts as profiteering regardless of rrp.
    I hope it does, anyway.

    Besides, with 120 feedback on here I'd have thought you should be pretty clued up on the trading rules.

    i dont understand how this guy is not banned. He has the most blatant trader persona of anyone on this forum!

    Nothing wrong with selling something for more than RRP if its a limited item.. I would happily pay over the odds for something if I really wanted it and couldn't get it elsewhere..

    Yeah but like deek says, its against the rules cos you cant profiteer on here. I could have lied and said i paid £1000 for them lol but nvm.

    rrp's are guidelines.

    Lets say you paid £300+ for an xbox package at release time. We wouldn't stop you from setting an asking price of the same amount, although you're unlikely to succeed as members would post links to the same product, which could be obtained new and at a cheaper price elsewhere.

    Of course should the xbox happen to contain characteristics that make it favourable to buyers/sellers, then quite often those prices are maintained.

    As for limited edition items no longer in production, we do review each item when brought to our attention. As long as we're content the forums are not being abused to simply profit in a trader like manner, then it's likely that we'd permit the listing to continue.

    out of interest... what kind of trainers were they?

    pm me in case you reckon you will get flamed.

    Note for wannabe mods: POSSIBLE PM IS JUST FOR INFORMATION ON WHAT THE SPECIFIC TRAINERS WERE, I AM NOT INTERESTED IN PURCHASING THEM.

    This bit is of particular note: in case you reckon you will get flamed.

    thanks for the info OP. Good luck selling elsewhere if you choose to do so.

    Even my limited intellect told me the question meant why couldn't you just PM Marz and ask instead of inviting him to pm you whilst at the same time lecturing us about whether your intention was to buy them or not (in bold, i might add). Like anyone cares whether you wanted to buy them.

    you paid £345 for these?

    Really? Is that how much they are oO
    That makes bykers comments even more superfluous

    just put them on the bay at 10 days before the end of the month with a sunday night finish when people get paid,if people want them they will find there natural price

    So you bought trainers that you can't afford to wear outdoors?

    Original Poster

    Lol I bought them because I knew the value would shoot up.

    Thanks boothy.

    Marzbarz, tbh mate i'd get the £1k now if you can get that.

    I can't honestly see them going up loads more if you keep them 5-10years+

    if you can triple your money DO IT
