    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.

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

    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.

    I assume they all come with original boxes, shoe bags, shoe trees, polishes, and extra pair of shoe laces (for laced up)?

    Kiton shoe trees are less than special; The other extras aren't very special either, but it's fair to expect all that anyway.

    haha...no offense, but at $750 we should be happy if they come in brand new condition in a USPS box [​IMG] when's the last time you saw new Kiton shoes at anywhere close to that price?

    ^ Take the kiton name off that shoe, and it will be culled to the depths of hell here.

    Actually even with that name, it is going to be culled.

    Not my style. Too fashion forward.
    Wouldn't buy them for $400.
    At least the styles I've seen.

    Dude, those are basically driving shoes in a childs size.

    People are really questioning the deal that $800 kiton shoes represent?? [​IMG]

    And Moo, shell Kitons retail at about double the OP's quoted prices. You aren't going to pay four figures for shoes.

    If the OP is patient, he can get closer to $1000 per pair on eBay. At $750 he is doing the forum a favor.
