The seller writes in all caps, too - a very common trait among the criminally insane.

Hey chobochobo, how are those zegna boots fitting?

Also, does anyone know how zegna shoes fit in general??

Shoes fit about dead on with standard american fit, the boots you can go down a 1/2 size.

I haven't got them yet as I haven't paid for them. I'm looking a bit more as the seller says he'll combine shipping

Seller has good BIN prices on Tramezzas but none in my size

I saw these but they're too wide. I was going to my 'local' SF to try on a pair but I guess I may be too late...

Pretty good price on mostly new Santoni FAM. Too big for me.

I second. Compared with all the Kiton pictures posted in this forum, even to my untrained eyes, they looked fishy. The finish looked static. And the seller doesn't show us the soles, seems there's something to hide.

+ he is offering free shipping, even internationally. Who does that ? With shoes ???

You are more prescient than you know AC. I just yesterday had the privilege of being measured by Paolo Scafora in NYC for my first bespoke shoes. Scafora are a sight to behold, 100% handmade and drop-dead gorgeous lasts. The trial fitting shoe should be ready on his next visit at the end of September.

Now as for selling off my RTW, anyone need some Kenneth Coles?

Another pair of Kiton shoes from the same seller.
150016810505

I must admit, the only Kiton shoes I have had a chance to view were made for Louis Boston.

They seem to be made for Tincati. Is it possible Kiton made a last and style specifically for the Italian retailer?

updated:
The seller emailed me pictures of the outsole.



This does not look like any of the Kiton shoes that I have seen.

Those Kiton's could be old stock, from before they started making their own shoes. I doubt anybody would add the Tincati name if they were mocking up Kiton shoes.
post #1093 of 14986
The shoes look nice but seems to be a few notches away in quality, from the 'real' Kiton. Just far less refined.

If you are size 9.5 US or so, on a budget and want new English goodyear welt shoes, this might be your chance for $25.

Hmm, but they look like plastic though.
