FS: Several preowned pairs of Calzoleria Toscana shoes, Gordon Rush boots (11-12US)

post #1 of 37
Thread Starter 
Up for sale are several inexpensive and preowned pairs of shoes from Calzoleria Toscana for Nordstrom in sizes 45-46 (11-12 US), as well as a pair of lightly used Gordon Rush boots in size 11.5. Shoe trees are not included with any of these. Update 01/12 All auctions end at around 11:30 AM PST on Sunday! If anyone wins multiple pairs, I will discount the combined shipping charges appropriately. #1 Calzoleria Toscana Wingtips, size 45, 11 US http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...MESE:IT&ih=002 These are well worn and were one of my goto pairs for wearing with denim. They had topies applied once in their life, along with a heel replacement, but they could probably use some more work if you get them. #2 Calzoleria Toscana Wholecuts, size 46, 12 US - SOLD Also well worn. Topies have been applied once, as well as a heel replacement. Could also use work on the soles. http://i225.photobucket.com/albums/d...holecuts_1.jpg #3 Calzoleria Toscana Wholecuts, size 45, 11 US http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...MESE:IT&ih=002 These are in better condition than the previous two and were only worn about 5-6 times. The color is a dark burgundy. #4 Calzoleria Toscana Monkstraps, size 45, 11 US http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...MESE:IT&ih=002 Also in good condition. Worn about 12-15 times, and the leather is soft on these. #5 Gordon Rush Boots, size 11.5 http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...MESE:IT&ih=002 Zip up side boots and worn about 3-4 times. These ended up being slightly too snug for me in the toe area.

I've had some requests for pictures of the toe areas on the shoes, so I'm posting them for everyone.

Robin, could you give me some more information on this brand?

I don't know much about them, but Nordstrom will put them out every now and then. They sell new for around $225-250, and they're probably the best quality shoes you can buy in that price range at full retail. All of the ones I've seen or owned are blake stitched, and have about the same quality of leather that AE uses. Here is their trade website, but it's not too helpful as it's meant for their wholesale accounts: http://www.calzoleriatoscana.it. I think they also have different lines that they sell to the EU and Asian markets, as other ones that I see online have price tags of $500 and up. Edit: Also, I just found this .jp website with some decent looking ones in the regular price range for those who are interested: http://item.rakuten.co.jp/drawers/c/0000000173/. And another page at rakuten: http://plaza.rakuten.co.jp/shoes123/diary/20060608/. This one too: http://www.brianza.jp/lineup/shoesbelt.html

Do you have narrow, medium, or wide feet? I ask because I really like the style of these shoes but I have very wide feet and am just curious if they would fit well.

Medium, I would guess. If you have really wide feet, in either an 11 or 11.5, these might not be for you. For reference, I usually wear an 11.5 D in most AE lasts, and the Toscana shoes are snug but wearable (though I probably could have used 45.5's).

MAN it'd be really REALLY great if Amerikajinda wasn't bidding on ALL these. I'd love to get a pair, but I don't want to get into a bidding war and end up paying $400 lol.

Damn that Amerikajinda.

Thanks! And best of luck in the other two auctions! Look like great shoes!

Maybe after a year or two we'll get sick of our respective pairs and trade? lol


Okay, now the creepy guy is gonna stop talking.

Out of interest how much would it be to ship them to the UK? Got my eye on a pair or two as well
