Shoe Closet Cleanout - Good Value! (AE, Church's, Santoni)

Okay, so my closet isn't anywhere near as extensive or exotic as most of the people here, but it still needs cleaning since my wife isn't yet used to the idea of a husband who owns more than 10 pairs of shoes!

All of these items just don't quite fit me (I have finally learned to live with being a true 10.5E, not an 11D) or the person I bought them for, so hopefully someone else can find some use for them. I think my prices are fair and are intended to move these quickly - all quoted prices include shipping, handling, and paypal fees.

I haven't sold here before, but I am on ebay (mostly a buyer) at tod13. Please PM and I will respond to the first to accept with details. Questions are welcome as well. Finally, I will stand by my sales and will accept any returns if you find the product not as described.

1) Allen Edmonds Sanford in Black, 11D, $45($55) - these are in great shape, no probems at all that I can tell on the uppers, soles have been replaced once but have very light wear

Attachment 9186


2) Church's "Prima Classe" Suede Captoe in Black, 9M, $65($75) - these are in fantastic shape and appear to have been worn a handful of times; given that it is suede you can tell they've been worn, but it is clean and new looking with none of the dreaded glossiness, roughness, or ratty patches; the soles (which, please note, are rubber) barely show any wear at all

Please note that the shoes pictured below are sold - I'm not sure how to remove the attachments.

I took the picture in late afternoon window light, which may have given that impression - I can assure you they are black.

Church's Spectators (#3) and Santonis (#5) are sold pending payment.

That leaves still for sale the AE Sanfords and Suede Church's.

Payment has been sent on the Spectators and Santonis, so those are gone.

Price drop of $10 each on the remaining shoes. Also please note that there are new pictures up of the suede Church's that really show what great shape these are in.

The Allen Edmonds are perfect for a budget buyer looking for a pair of quality shoes in great shape that can be used every day - the Sanford is a very classy model.

Thanks for looking!

Would the Church shoes fit someone who wears a 10 in AE/Alden?

I will do my best to answer the sizing on the Church's, but since they are not even close to my size I don't have much I can offer by way of comparison.

The best information I have is the actual size: 11 1/2" long by 4 3/8" wide.

I also put them sole to sole with the size 10EE Santonis that were also listed in this thread, and they come up about 3/8" short - which would seem to me to validate them as a 9UK/~9.5US.


So for comparison between the 9 in Church's and a 10 in Alden/AE, I am not sure but I suspect they would be a bit smaller. Perhaps if you took a ruler to your size 10's to compare with the measurement above?

Thanks!
