post #40831 of 89481
Sorry, forgot to mention why I am selling them so cheap...because like I said, even at those crazy prices, people are still asking for more discount. We answered about 150 emails yesterday about the sale and only sold 8 pairs. If I was having the same sale on sizes 8-9, we would have sold about 300 pairs easy.

We do this because obviously the market is smaller for sizes over 10. The most common size in the US is about 9-9.5 and in Asia about 8-9. Yet we always get complaints that we don't have enough large sizes. Now you know the reason.

 

dingdingding... coming from a previous career at the retail level, I can respect markups.. also am well aware of reductions from time to time to not only free up more buying power but also move possible stagnant product..

 

that all being said, answer the info@leathersoul... email that I sent lol. curious what inventory is avail in my sizes

Whoops, miscalculated. My cost sold at $195 would be about $290 so I am only losing about $95 at that price.

Step your game up. People obviously spoiled from Mr Porter's sales last year, where they paid people to take their left over inventory.

Nubuck Pitt boot in 10.5C gone and the 10.5 chocolate suede plaza semi-brogue also sold. Unlucky that of the 8 pair you actually sold, my two wants were gone. I would have helped your ratio - 1 email, 2 pairs gone.

If you had some E widths, I'd have bought some! smile.gif I tried to talk myself into some 11.5D barrie when I'm an 11E, but decided it probably wouldn't work. Looks like you might have sold those pairs anyway...
