I am extremely knowledgeable about high-end shoes and have owned everything from Hermes to Prada and many Gucci shoes and I'm going to say these are the highest quality I have ever owned. They are vintage shoes made during Bally's golden era. If they were made today they would be in the $1,200 + range. I purchased them new in the box from an estate and wore them twice on carpet. The listening includes signature Bally shoe trees and Bally dust covers. I would rate the shoes as nearly new and excellent to Perfect pre-owned. Please feel free to ask me any questions.
