Andrew, you have every reasons to be underwhelmed as I am. According to A Harris, the current wave of Kiton on eBay are old stock. They were made by outside makers before Kiton set up its in-house operation. It is very easy to tell which is which.
I'll elaborate the fit a little further. I wear American 10.5D, Kiton 9D is tight for me while 9.5D a little loose, if I am between sizes I always err on the loose side as I really hate tight shoes.
