Great opening price of $200 on Tramezza Darting double monks in brown pebble grain (8D).

Nice Zegna Couture brown plaintoe bals (10D but probably fits a 10.5-11)

Damn it! Why couldn't that Santoni wholecut be a 7.5?

As he said, those are almost certainly a British 7, which means US 7.5 - 8.

Did you go one (or half) size down from your usual US size?

I felt they were a dead on to US sizing.
Mine are marked 10 1/2 and that's is how they fit.
I really like them in the summer and they are a lighter shade of brown but not too light. Goes well with the whole neapolitan theme I having running thru my wardrobe. Quite natty with dark charcoal suits.

No idea who makes them, or if the purported retail price is accurate. But fwiw:

That sounds consistent with other Borrelli shoes. If you do a search on Borrelli shoes you will find some wingtips selling for $950 retail at the Borrelli store.

I think the retail value is consistent with what I have seen as well.

He's almost certainly basing the retail price on the price on the box in one of the pictures.

I think a lot of ebay sellers use the retail price as an anchoring mechanism (behavioral finance) to persuade buyers that they're getting a great deal. If you think about it, the boots wouldn't be on ebay if they were flying off the shelves at the retail price. Either there is something the matter with the shoe, e.g., store return with scuffs (doesn't seem to be the case in this instance), or the retail price was so high that some store was left holding product they could no longer move.

Demi-chasse (696 - "Split-Toe on Ridgeway") in 10.5E NWOB:

Or, for the truly tiny-footed among us (5 US), two pairs like new for BIN of $219 for both:

The top pair of the two is the "Golf Oxford" model (Model 641 - $675 at NM), the bottom pair, their split-toe, short-strap penny loafer ("La Reference," Model 180).
