    I'm wondering because this Ebay auction, of a very nice-looking pair of shoes (channelled soles too), apparently is for a pair of Swiss-made shoes. I emailed the seller about what is stated on the inside of the shoes and this was her response:

    "The numbers inside of the shoe are stated as such: 9 c k80475 11. It says made in Switzerland. If you do find out the maker, please let me know. Thanks."

    I believe Bally makes their top of the line shoe, the Scribe, in Switzerland. The very first ones were goodyear welted but later ones are not and definitely no channeled soles.

    The earlier styles were classically inspired while the new ones are far too fashion forward for my taste.
