Kiton Shoes on Ebay

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Some interesting looking Kiton shoes just popped up on Ebay for someone in a size 9.   Kiton Shoes   Elegant, but don't think I like the reddish color.

The color is actually really nice in person, the pictures don't do Kitons antique work justice... and the price is well under a $1,000 less than I have ever seen them for sale. Just wish they were a size 12 LOL...

price will probably go sky high

Looks like it's one of "our people" on top at the moment. From what I've seen, Kiton shoes are extremely nice.

Kiton shoes have the best finishing of any shoe I've ever seen. The antiquing is almost excessive, if anything.

If I had to choose an upper-end Italian shoe from the current EBay crop, I'd take these Lattanzi penny loafers. Have had good experience with this seller, but they aren't cheap. Nor are they my size. http://<a href="http://cgi.ebay.com/......me=WDVW</a>

I love those Kiton's. Gorgeous lines. And, stylestudent, I'm puzzled as to why those Lattanzi's haven't sold -- they're nice looking (much less toned down than some Lattanzi's) and almost cheap.... They've been on Ebay now for a couple months I think, maybe more.

It's really difficult to translate the seller's measurements to an American size. The shoes are wide at 4 1/4". Maybe an 8EEE if they were Aldens.

I prefer Berluti.

Is 4-1/4 inches really that wide? I wear a 12-1/2 or 13D and I think most of my shoes are 4-1/4 to 4-1/2 inches wide. Perhaps width measurements (B, C, D, E, EE, etc.) change depending on the shoe's length?

I'm sure you're right that width measurements change with the length of the shoe and that 4 1/4" outsole width would be a "D" on size 12 and up. But for shorter feet, a 4 1/4" outsole is a very wide EEE (I have size 9EEE Aldens that are that width).

You'd think that someone from Japan would snap them up, even if nobody else is interested. Perhaps they're too restrained for most Lattanzi fans.
