You could ask that question about the shoes as a whole. biggrin.gif

Just be careful I sold my pair of 11Ds because they were like 11.5DUS.

Why would anyone with enough taste to buy Silvano Lattanzi shoes in the first place be stupid enough to take them to an ordinary cobbler and commit that crime against craftsmanship? The soles and heels would have to be taken off, immediately, and then hope that the cobbler who attached those products to those shoes did not ruin them beyond repair! That is sad!

Not to mention the seller is trying to pass them off as original soles - strongly implying that they are almost new.

I usually mind my own business on ebay, but I contacted her and suggested she get a proper sole put on. Explained that anyone who knows will definitely pass on a high bid in that condition. She was quite snarky and defensive, so I apologized and let it be. I seriously doubt anything can be done for them at this point. It looks like the blind cobbler may well have done damage to the welt. Looks like he added holes instead of using the ones already there. UUUUUGGGGGHHHHH. I'd probably pay $100 for them just to perform an autopsy. Never had the opportunity to band-saw some Lattanzia before.

she probably thrifted them, cut corners on the refurbishment, and now wants top dollar for an "as-new" Lattanzi

THIS!

EG loafers 12/12.5 C 184 last.

 

NIB but with rubber over-soles added (shame). Starting bid £200 or BIN £350.

 

Perfect size for me, but I don't like loafers!

Nevermind the butcher job on the resoling, the toes look like the previous owner spent his days kicking brick walls.

Wow! The sole/heel job was so bad I did not think to look at the rest. How on earth does she justify the statement "VERY LITTLE SIGN OF WEAR." The left shoe, right in the photo, is especially bad. That is significant signs of wear, just the opposite of what is being stated. That said, that could probably be made to look okay and still be worth wearing. In the end, that re-sole/heel job is just too much.
