    Bought these shoes recently at home here in the UK from a Oxfam charity (thrift) store.

    Saw them in the shop window by accident, had to rush in and buy them.

    Were in pretty bad condition to be honest, but after a bit of work are starting to show their former glory, just need to get them resoled now.

    Here comes the best bit cost just £15 (about $22).

    About 5% off a perfect fit - very pleased with them.

    Thanks guys, as I say really pleased with them, if they didnt fit they would have been put straight on ebay anyways so guess I was in a win win situation.

    Holdfast, they came from Oxfam in Weybridge, Surrey, not one of the usual Chelsea Kensington Chiswick suspects.

    For 15 quid, well worth it even with the creases.
    What is the size pray tell?

    They may be berluti, but the creasing looks terrible and I don't like the design.

    NAh! I have seen shoes like Lattanzi and Berluti with much worse creases going for a few hundred bucks on the net before.

    UK size 10. To be honest I quite like the creasing, I think shoes like this improve with age. Have got plenty of Santoni FAMS in mint condition, its nice to wear a pair of distinctive shoes that are aging - have never been the type to buy nice shoes, keep them in a box, get them out of the wardrobe, polish them, photograph them, put back in wardrobe, post on forum, repeat 3 months later. Have to say though, the design isn't one of the best Berluti have produced... glad I didn't pay full retail for them [​IMG]
