They are 158 usd at cost now. So then marked up as need be. duties and taxes on them coming from Italy really doesn't help anybody out... TB can be slow to respond, but their shipping is pretty unreal and apparently they are dropping the price of shipping to the USA this fall too. Yeah - I was looking at the wholesale, and I think that I saw that on the bottom of the nylon safari boots. Unreal. I wonder what the sell through at retail is. I've got seven pairs, all bought under cost, and I am a pretty standard size (43), and it wasn't as though I had to scramble for them, and pretty every retailer, from Barneys to South Willard to Aloharag, seemed to have plenty of leftovers of pretty much every model, so I wonder if CP hasn't priced itself out of competition in the contemporary market, at least in this economy. I like the shoes (obviously), but $365 for sneakers is steep. Yes, I know that Lanvins are double, but I am not a Lanvin customer.
