    Sorry, forgot to mention why I am selling them so cheap...because like I said, even at those crazy prices, people are still asking for more discount. We answered about 150 emails yesterday about the sale and only sold 8 pairs. If I was having the same sale on sizes 8-9, we would have sold about 300 pairs easy.

    Whoops, miscalculated. My cost sold at $195 would be about $290 so I am only losing about $95 at that price.

    Step your game up. People obviously spoiled from Mr Porter's sales last year, where they paid people to take their left over inventory.

    Nubuck Pitt boot in 10.5C gone and the 10.5 chocolate suede plaza semi-brogue also sold. Unlucky that of the 8 pair you actually sold, my two wants were gone. I would have helped your ratio - 1 email, 2 pairs gone.

    If you had some E widths, I'd have bought some! :) I tried to talk myself into some 11.5D barrie when I'm an 11E, but decided it probably wouldn't work. Looks like you might have sold those pairs anyway...
