Girlfriend brought me back loafers from Italy that don’t fit. What’s the best site to get the most value on these?

My girlfriend brought me back a pair of ferragamo loafers and Gucci drivers from Italy and unfortunately they are too large. I’m between seeing if I can buy inserts or just trying to sell them. These are both new and have only been worn to see if they fit. What sites are the best place to try to offload these for the closest to value?

Are you the same guy who posted a month ago about which Italian loafers your girlfriend should be up for you when she travelled to Italy?

I’m the same. The selection where she went wasn’t huge. I got sized in America but for whatever reason these are still a little big.

Though you’re back seeking advice from the same people you originally ignored?

Try eBay. Good luck.

I have to ask her what shop But she was in Sicily so I’d assume someone by Taormina
Contact them. If they're independent, they may do a swap them if you pay postage and any import duties. The independent shops are normally good like that in Italy - but Sicily is a little bit different. You'd definitely want to send with registered post and have agreement in email

But, it begs the question, why didn't you have her take pictures and then go and try on an equivalent pair where you live to advise her on size?
