    Pricey but hot wingtip bals by Nettleton in 9.5D. Rare to see a medium width in this unworn state. Check out those soles -- can definitely tell they're the slightly more elegant brother of the iconic Nettleton longwing.

    LK should get this for his telephonic needs.

    The retractable cord is what really sells it.


    What a tasteful item.

    I don't understand why people spend well upwards of $100 on well-used shoes...

    I don't get why people would spend $10 for well-used shoes. If you aren't buying them at a thrift shop out of necessity ... [​IMG]

    I just sell what the people want. Sometimes I feel guilty when an extremely worn pair sells for a lot. I think to myself, "You paid that much for these?"

    I make sure the really beat shoes are accurately described and photographed. Nothing else I can do. I'm certainly not going to talk someone out of it.

    I believe they're Cheaney. Definitely not C&J. No question about it.

    I think they are a bit over priced. I picked up a pair of NOS pebbled grain nettelton longwings about ayr ago for under $100. They were listed for $125 or so and with a best offer option and I think i offered $80 or so and it was accepted.

    What size? I've seen NOS Nettleton longwings in 9/9.5 break $200 pretty often.

    Those wingtips are overpriced, but I don't recall seeing another pair like them in this size range.

    They were 7EEE...which could be the reason behind the low price. I wear 9D and I have found 7EEE sometimes fit me, and luckily this was the case with the nettletons.
