    "Feeler post" - Might be getting in Kiton shoes - is there much interest at $800 - $900 a pop? Retail is (a staggering) $2,600 - $2,900. Most sizes...

    So... not much interest I guess... too pricey? Depending on how much we can negotiate, we may be able to offer them as low as $750 - but 110 pair is a lot to commit to when only a handful of responses and pm's have come in... they'd be lace-ups as well as loafers and monk straps.

    Depending on the style, color, etc. there might be considerable interest.
    Inlcude size 10 US in your offering and I'll take a serious look.

    $700 is extremely doubtful - $750 is a POSSIBILITY

    Forgot to mention my size is in 11, 11.5, 12 range. I understand many Kiton models are at least 1.5 over-sized.

    Do you charge sales tax? If yes, to what state(s)?

    Thanks for the responses so far... we're going to see if we can make the deal to be at around $750. In the mean time, we're looking at a separate deal for Kiton suits and coats as well as a smaller lot of shoes - 30 or so. That might work better... will keep you guys posted.

    No sales tax whatsoever - although I believe if you have sales tax in your state you are *technically* responsible for paying sales tax on your own on internet orders, but we do not file anything or track that. We are based in and ship from NJ where we don't have any sales tax on clothing or shoes.

    you'll definitely be able to sell quite a few at $750. the problem with Kiton is that they make some shoes that just look god dam ridiculous. for more traditional styles, you will sell out at that price. speaking for myself i just need to know what Kiton size corresponds to a small 10D (9? 8.5?) and i'm in.
