I see no reason to think not. I have bought from this seller before and found him to be a very reliable seller of high-quality, well-presented previously owned shoes. If you do not mind that these are used, they could be a nice bargain.

Isn't this a bit much?

Calling kitonbrioni, calling kitonbrioni.

Someone is selling 23 pair of exotic skin shoes in an estate sale from a "Prominate Family"!

I hope they are not your collection.

Here's a sample:



Beautiful, aren't they?

And here's the complete inventory:

Inventory of exotic skin shoes from estate sale of a "Prominate Family".

As we all know, one can never have too many David Edens!

I'd be suspect of someone who can't even spell prominent correctly.

I GUESS THAT MEANS SOMETHING IN THE HIGH END SHOE WORLD, UNFORTUNATLY I AM THE FLIP FLOP GENERATION.

The rub is that those exotic-skin shoes aren't even very high quality ones.

Well, there are no Cleverly or Corthays here.

But there are some Mauris and a pair of Belvedere.

What's strange is that the shoes are many different sizes.

I guess "Prominate Families", are like that.

Is "estate sale" really a selling point for clothing? Now you can wear a dead man's shoes?

I think I'd just keep that to myself.

Ah, yes... I recognize him from his artistic pictures... sometimes with random people in the background!

That would be a nice SF sequel to the Sixth Sense: "I see dead people's shoes."

2 pairs brand new Alden captoe bals. If you're an 8.5 and starting out buying good shoes, this is a great way to kickstart your collection with 2 classic pairs everyone should own - black stitched cap and burgundy brogues. These would be a great deal at $300.
