I bought this pair of Marlow penny loafers in a 10.5, but it turns out that I need something closer to an 11. So, I must sell this pair. I'm sad to part with them because they are so beautiful. These shoes are NIB, but they have definitely been tried on several times.
I tried them on once on a carpeted surface. It also appears that someone tried them on before I received them as well. These are essentially new in the box, but there are two areas of note. The first is that there is a very thin scratch on the middle of the outside surface of the right shoe. The profile picture above clearly shows it. It's as noticeable in person as it is in the picture. Personally, I don't find it very noticeable. The second thing is that there is a small ding on the sole of the left shoe. This would go away as soon as you wore it and scuffed up the sole, but I want to throw it out there.
These shoes are beautiful. The leather appears dark brown, but the grain and depth of the color comes out in the light. I tried to photograph the grain in the last picture, but the picture doesn't do it justice.
I'm happy to answer any questions. The price is $430, with shipping to the CONUS included. I will accept payment through PayPal gift or +3%.
