    They are good shoes. I think Kiton makes a couple different quality lines though. I saw a pair at Louis that was a standard lace-up that wasn't nearly as nice as most of the other Kiton shoes I've seen, including some at Louis. It had a different color sock, IIRC, and was marked down from $1,600 something to around $400.

    $400 is like 720 in USDA food stamps.

    Would love a pair of brown wintips or semi brogues in US11.

    If you bring in classic designs in sensible sizes (more quantities in the 9-11 size ranges), I think these babies will sell, especially in variants of brown shades rather than black.

    Those Kitons can almost go neck to neck with these Vass monks [​IMG]

    Sounds like there may be enough interest - let the negotiations begin! But like I said, $750 might be a stretch. $800+ is more realistic, but I will fight for you guys!

    400 is more like 800 or more in food stamps. At least here in Detroit, and we buy them all the time. Only person you see buying chilean sea bass with an EBT Card.

    Kiton are always highly desirable. IMO the best antiquing, as well as best shoe in RTW.
    750-850 seems to be the price point on SF, sometimes 900-1000 on ebay , but must be patient for that on ebay. I have sold Kiton on both ebay and SF. I would and will buy more.

    id just like to jump in and say the kitons that chl sold me are great, they are super comfortable after a while even more so than my JL prestige. I wear them in the rain and snow (they are suede) and they still look great! so will definitely be interested in buying more!

    Any updates?

    By the time we were going to buy them they had already sold all the oxfords and only loafers were left so we passed... but I'm sure we'll have another opportunity in the future. Now we're working on some JL's. We also have an opp for Tom Ford - any interest there?
