These beautiful shoes are marked 11 1/2 (that's why I bought them) but unfortunately for me, they run perhaps a size bigger than advertised. I'm guessing they're a 12 or a 12 1/2 US size...

They measure 13" long and 4.5" wide...

Similar shoes go for over $400: http://www.tonyshoes.com/index.php/m...telli-rossetti

However I'm willing to let them go for $100 shipped anywhere in the USA; $125 shipped anywhere in the world.

This is the website if you're interested in learning more about the maker: http://www.rossetti.it
Or if you're in New York they have a boutique at 625 Madison Avenue...

Thanks for your interest and excellent questions... I don't know what line they're from exactly, but I do know that they are not from the "Flexa" line (that's their casual line, and these shoes are quite dressy, yet stylish). Fratelli Rossetti is "a name that does not need a big introduction. Simply the TOP in footwear." (That according to this Swiss website in Italian: http://www.poretti-modauomo.ch/articoli/scarpe.htm) And in this store in Germany (http://www.jerrys-shoes.de) they're sold alongside John Lobb and Alden, so they're in quite good company! As for the size... it's difficult to say... if you're interested in trying them on I'd be more than happy to ship them to you, and should they not fit I'd be happy refund your money and pay shipping both ways... The best way to know the size for sure would be to try them on and walk around a bit...

Shoes received! The packing was particularly well done (and environmentally friendly!
). They fit me well and are as nice as described, so I'm happy! (For reference, I wear a 12E in PAs.) It was a pleasure doing business with you, amerikajinda, and I would recommend you to other forum members. PS: I took them into the cobbler today to get Topys and he commented that the leather was nice.

Thank you for the kind words, Jared. My loss is your gain!

All the best...
