BNIB Bontoni St Regis 10.5D (prefer trade)

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
I bought these a couple weeks ago to wear with a couple custom suits I had made. You probably won't believe me but I love them. They fit well, are wonderfully comfortable and the color is SUBLIME. They have a wonderful antique color and the toe has been spit shined or horse hair burnished. But here is the thing I feel they are a bit too fashion forward to wear with the suits I bought them for. So I was hoping someone out there has a pair of Edward Greens, John Lobb, Vass or C&J Handgrades that are brand new in box in a black or burgundy that they may want to trade. Something a bit more conservative. More of a rounded toe. I think the blk or burgundy would fit the suits better. I am a 9.5E or 9.5D English, 43.5 or 44 Vass, and 10.5D US. The retail price of this shoe is $995 US. I would probably sell for $450 plus $15 S&I. I am actually more interested in a trade.

They are brand new, have never seen anything but carpet. They come with their own shoe bags and trees. Oh the cat is not part of the deal. My wife would probably prefer if I sent the cat but it stays.

Lutfa I responded to your questions in your pm. If I don't trade them I will just keep them. Send them back? ARE YOU NUTS?

I would buy them from you but they are not my size. Frankly, I would advise you to keep them! They are truly exceptional shoes. They run head to head with my John Lobbs. I have two pairs of Bontoni-both are similar in color. I can't tell you how many compliments I get for the coloring. I beg to differ with you regarding the limited options in which a color like that permits you to match with your wardrobe. By the way, wear did you buy them?

gorgeous shoes. I agree that you should just keep them. And looking at them, I can't see what's so "fashion forward" about them?????

Get Smart,
you are quite clever. I actually failed to mention that this Bontoni model has a discreet elegance...there is nothing ostentatious about it. I think the color is quite and unique and subdued. When it comes to shoe colors, however, I think men in this country need to move beyond the ordinary browns and blacks. They need to be adventurous. Bontoni and Berluti-arguably the best two that specialize in shoe coloring, just have to keep plugging away. With time, more men will see the light at the end of the tunnel...

You know I don't know....maybe I will just keep em. i love the shoe but don't like the way they look with my suits. Anybody know where I can get a belt that would match?
