I purchsed a penny loafer from Nordstrom rack today which is from the Santoni fate a mano line.
The leather is genuine cordovan in a dark brown. The sock is also of the same material as the upper (dark bown cordovan) with a closed channel goodyear welted sole.
I have never seen this type of Santoni before, does anyone else have experience with cordovan Santoni and what would be the retail price on this shoe

fatte a mano start at around $700 and i have seen them for around $1300
so these shoes must be around that price, but being cordovan, the price may be more.
Will sell it for $500
Size is 9D (seem to run small)

I had once seen a pair of norwegain (dover like toe) cordovan FAMs. I may not be absolutely right but I think they were over a $1000. I am surprised that your size 9s are small. Like edmorel, I wear about a 10.5 and the one pair of FAM loafers is a little generous on my feet while being marked 9.5!

What is the length etc?

sole length is 11 3/4 in and the sole width is tad under 4.5 in.
maybe this is a mismarked pair-the reason for ending up in nordstroms rack
the welt is somewhat wide so teh actual internal measurements maybe be smaller than the above measurements
