    English shoes for ammo

    I have a beaut pair of dress shoes that will make you pommies (hope thats not hate speech) drool. They are UK size 9.5 but seem to be made for the more narrow foot as they are too narrow for my fat feet. They are made by Barker of Earls Barton UK whose cheapest shoes are more than nz$600 landed here. Visit the firm at www.barkershoes.com Will sell for $150 or trade for equivalent value in 12ga buckshot or slugs.

    Easily the most original post on here I have witnessed.

    Good luck with the trade!

    Jeez l love this forum ,my missus ran in the room to see what l pissing myself about.This has to be the story line from a Footrot Flats or Barry Crump story, the punchline being they are counterfit shoes, old mate makes them out of pig skin from the boars he is shooting with the buck shot . The perfect Kiwi crime

    You could have them stretched or try that yourself with a shoe tree.

    At the price you paid ,if the length is ok and they are a little
    bit pinchy it might be worth a go?

    I am offended by the sight of those shoes and the term Pommies. Where do I get

    a) my free hug
    b) the $1 million compensation

    That's a hell of a good deal. Quality footwear just can't be beaten. The difficult bit is finding stuff with a sole that is also made for walking distances nowadays.

    For that you have to go for their ankle boots. @oxfarmer is not half right about their prices. As for them stopping at UK size 11 ... I despair.

    $120?

    One of you heathens need to buy these to wear to church instead of your raggedy gumboots. Your wife might be so pleased she will buy you a new shotgun for Christmas!

    But then I'll have no ammo to go with said shotgun. Having swapped the ammo for a new pair of shoes... Oh the conundrum.
    Free bump.
    If you can't beat them, beat them.
    They will be expecting you to join them, so you'll have the element of surprise.

    If any of us were to go to church in them they would need to be fitted with a earthing strap for the lightning strikes.

    Good luck with the sale,swap or Kiwi criminal mastermind scheme .
