I was looking through ebay for a basic pair of black shoes to wear through the winter in Toronto and found this cheap pair to abuse:

http://cgi.ebay.com/Mens-Shoes-by-Santoni-Size-10D-Black-Md-in-Italy-NR_W0QQitemZ270286620073QQcmdZViewItem?hash=item270286620073&_trkparms=72:1205|39:1|66:4|65:12|240:1318&_trksid=p3286.c0.m14

The $20 price tag shouts too good to be true, but I just wanted to make sure they are fake before I pass on them. Can somebody please advise me as to whether the below shoes are legit?

Thanks,

Flo

tough to say w/o pics of inside/bottom but it's doubtful. Sure you aren't the one selling them?

I highly doubt they'll sell for the $20 price tag you mention by the time the whole schebang is over... Especially, now that your spots blown.

You don't see a lot of fake Santonis. Most people who would buy a fake have never heard of Santoni.

Looks real. Probably a display shoe.
