A pair that belongs to a collector from Lyon
This pair, size 9.5 in the USA (the equivalent of a 43.5 in France) belongs to a collector from Lyon who wishes to remain anonymous at all costs. They were worn, but not by the actor. They are part of a rare reissue, in 2011, 1500 copies were sold on Ebay for the benefit of the Michael J. Fox foundation for research on Parkinson’s disease (from which the actor has suffered since the 1990s).
