    That trunk looks pretty beat up.

    In any case, if you can afford a Park Avenue apartment and a Tuscan villa, you don't need to buy "vintage" luggage on eBay. If you're that wealthy and a shoe freak "to boot," then why not swing by the LV store and commission your own shoe trunk?

    A bargain considering you may be carrying around $50,000+ in shoes in the case.

    Better yet, keep a separate collection of shoes at your villa.

    PM the seller.  Tell him/her you'd take it off his/her hands for five bucks.

    Some people prefer to use vintage luggage.

    Marlene Dietrich kept her shoes in a Vuitton trunk under her piano.
