    I am really hoping someone remembers where these were or still has a picture...
    This was pre-crash. The shoes were by Kiton I believe, spectators, dark antiqued brown with antiqued ivory.
    Anyone?
    Thanks, Stelios.

    PM the member Sartoriale -- I think he was the Ebay seller. Maybe he'll have an archived picture.

    Ah! I think you are right, I remember some eBay shop having a pic of those. Thanks.

    Yes, but with the price of the euro, $1700 American is not really all that expensive, is it? [​IMG]

    Not worth the price, in my opinion. Also, unless you have little feet proportional to your body, I think these will look funny.

    I know people don't love To Boot, but these evoke those unbelievable Kitons for me:

    I love spectators and those rock! Did you get them?
    Allen Edmond used to make the Broadstreet in brown /white. There is a pair of dark brown and linen? by Romano Martegani I'm seriously looking at having made.

    Those are awfully nice. Mmm. I sort of forgot about them.

    I haven't yet, but I'm thinking of doing so if they are part of Neiman's "first call" sales this week.
    I like the elongated toe and it would be something different in my collection, so I might get them. Will report back.

    Those kiton specs were one of the most beautiful pairs of shoes i've ever seen.

    This reminded me of your selection. I own the lighter brown versions of these. They are by Mezlan, the style is called "Squire". My AE's have a more rounded toe, so this was a nice change. I do alot of walking at my job, these have held up great so far.
