    Bijan Shoes US 8.5

    Does anyone have any idea about who might have made these?

    They are a bit flashy to be sure - but I rather like flashy shooz!

    FWIW, they're not laced, they're stylized loafers.

    Yeah, other than the name on the trees everything looks rather cheap. Hence my question if anyone knew anything more about Bijan shoes in general.

    They are generally astronomically priced and I presume that even with a ridiculous markup that genuine Bijan labled shoes would have to be of a quality worth at least a few hundred bucks.

    I've contacted the seller to see what else he knows about them........could be total fakes..............

    Caveat Emptor and all that..........................

    Yeah I've seen this same type of shoe from Bijan on le Bay multiple times in the past. I dunno if it's an issue of them being real Bijan. For me it's the fact that they look like plastic. However, I will say they might be a nice shoe to wear in the rain? Either way I'd try to give the seller a low ball offer if you're interested. Just my $0.02.

    Amazing buy it now price ($34.50) for Brooks English black wingtips in what appears to be good condition. I believe these were made by Church's. Unfortunately, it's not clear what size they are. (Seller says they're not marked.) The seller guesses that they're a 9.5 or 10 narrow, based on being snug on his size 10.5 feet, but based on the length measurement (11.25"), it's more likely they're an 8.5 or 9 narrow.
