    They arent worth anything. Glued rubber.

    No association with Luigi Borrelli

    The famous Neapolitan shirtmaker Luigi Borrelli spells his name with two 'R'.
    "Borelli" (with a single 'R') is a brand of the German shoe discounter Deichmann.

    Borrelli and Borelli move in totally different spheres.

    I have no idea, whether the similarity of the names is just coincidental or an attempt
    to cash-in on the Neapolitan firm.
