Don't these go for about $3,000 new?
Nah. For a basic shoe like that with no antiqueing and no Norwegian welting, I believe that the going rate is more like $1800 to $2000. A bargain.
(Of course, they are excellent shoes.)

No. Kiton has an 8-man team of shoemaker at their basement (literally) making shoes.

How do you feel about spending money on non-essential goods during the Covid-19 crisis?

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
