Who makes these Nordstrom shoes?

The Nordstrom shoes with which I've come into contact were nothing to write home about; about Cole Haan level or thereabouts. In terms of who makes them, I'm sure it is simply one of the Italian makers who makes tons of the lower-entry level shoes for various makers with the "made in Italy" badge.

That being said, since the opening bid is .01 and Nordstroms don't generally cause bidding wars, you could probably get a great pair of shoes at a great price. I wouldn't pay retail, by any means, but if you could get them for $30 or less (shipping included), they'd be well worth it.

Looks like a real good buy - if I'm reading this one correctly, they have been in a closet for awhile as they were made (as far as I can tell) by a factory in Franklin, WV that used to make shoes for Bostonian, among others. Been closed for about 10 years. Perfectly good shoes...

Truly affordable way to acquire foot fungus.

For a penny, I'd buy 'em too. Make sure you snipe.

Helpful. Why would you waste your time and mine

Grimslade, for a penny, it's a no brainer. How about for $25? Would you agree that they are in the range of CH?

Thanks.
