Check out this seller's offerings--kicks from Lattanzi, Vass, Lobb, Bemer, Testoni, Branchini, and Sutor Mantellassi:http://clothing.search.ebay.com/_Men...QQsassZmdibbleNotes:Vass
Norwegers on Budapest last: True 8 US, I believe; very slight wear--maybe what you'd have after 5 or 6 wearings; double-soles; go straight to BIN of $379 and be sure to add the extra $35 for the Vass lasted trees. Great deal.Lattanzi
brogue oxfords: Jeez, Lattanzi, for heaven's sake. Worn, but not really that much wear; gorgeous shoes; currently at $375, but will go much higher I think. Again US 8.Lobb
plain-toe bluchers: Says size 8.5 US, since 8 UK. However, my experience with Lobb would suggest that they could be closer to 9 US--probably more like 8.75 US. Not much wear.Bemer
for RTW Valextra line: Almost no wear at all. Very stylish Italian-genre cap-toes on sleek last. Undoubtedly very fine shoes. Euro size 41 should translate to about 8 US, but check this out carefully.Branchini
ornate full-brogue derbies with Norvogese construction: again, light wear; not my style, but obviously very high-quality shoes. Marked Size 7F, which sellers translates to 7 US wide. Buyer would need to check very carefully re fit. Could ask for interior length as a start (not definitive, but a starting point).a. Testoni
monk shoes: From Black Label line so about $750-$850 retail. Very light wear; almost new. If I were interested, I'd probably go straight to the BIN of $199. Italianate style on a very nice last, and of high quality construction, with very attractive antiqued finish. Seller says Testoni 8 would equate to about 8.5 US, but check this out further.Sutor Mantellassi
suede full-brogue oxfords: From higher SM line. I have very similar shoe in a suede derby and they (and these, I believe) retail for something on the order of $875-$900. Hard to gauge the wear with the rubber soles, but I suspect very little. Pictures don't do justice to the dark brown suede, which on that level of SM is very rich and luxurious. Since made for a US store, the size appearing in the shoe is undoubtedly correct--8.5 US in this case.Alden
- two pairs: If you like Alden and black shell cordovan, these could be a reasonably good deal. Again very light wear.
This is a quality seller from all that I've seen now and in the past.
