No, I was not bluffing, but I'll withdraw my snipe anyway. I had it set uo on auctionstealer.com. It's not that I'm that great a guy, but I'm really a size 10&1/2, amd while I like these Zegnas a lot, I'm not in love with them.

I think you're dreaming though if you think they will ultimately sell for less than $101! The last time they sold for $349, and there's still more than 6 days to go in this auction. You never know on Ebay though, so Good Luck!

Zegna's run a little large, so they should be perfect for 10.5

Open lacing is tricky if not tried on. I've seen many that have that spread laces/buldging fit which I don't care. for. Those laces should close neatly. Tricky at best on ebay.

Looks like Jun Kuwana may be selling off some of the lesser lights in his collection (you know, a few things from the likes of Lattanzi and Aubercy as well as the inevitable JL and EG):

Luckily his feet are too small

Thank God I wear a 11.

Oh holy crap. That's my size.

I am confused, what is the size?

He's been doing that for quite a while. (I don't think he has any urgency with the selling bit, and I presume he is not in particular need of money.)

End of last year, I bought a pair of EG "˜Herrick' boots from him. Initially he didn't want to go through ("Too complicated outside of Japan"), but eventually, mainly due to the good offices of Bic Pentameter in Tokyo, the deal was done.

What did you pay?

And the size is a UK 8 E.

Thank you. I can simply admire from afar.

I can only assume that they will soon begin appearing in some "shoe damage" threads.

Indeed. Damned tiny-footed people.

A lot - 80,000 yen (USD 688 at today's exchange rate).

I always wanted these boots and EG had stopped producing them. They had some technical difficulties with the design and had decided "No More!". (I'm sure it wasn't the bestseller in the EG catalogue). I even tried to appeal to Hilary Freeman, no luck.

So when Kuwana offered them for sale, I snapped them up.
(Size 8 / 8½ E, last 89)
