Above: A bidding war in a July 2019 eBay auction, with possible sniping in the last few seconds. The opening bid was $24.99. The winning bid was $282.77. Banister Shoes still command substantial prices, especially considering: 1) the used condition (except for those rare finds of New Old Stock-N.O.S.), and 2) the ages of the shoes. One can see, however, that the quality and beauty of Banister Shoes, even those made by Stetson Shoes, have stood the test of time.
