bensimon 'nils' sneakers, size 9-9 1/2

On offer: canvas Bensimon sneakers, size 40 (suitable for someone who wears a size 9 or 9 1/2, I'd say), model 'Nils' in taupe.
I had tried these sneakers on at the Bensimon store in Antwerp, but they didn't have the colour I wanted there, so I ordered them online. At the store, size 40 seemed to be the right size, but when these shoes came in the mail, they were too small! Then I was too late with sending them back, and I thought I'd offer them to one of you.
I love this model, it's sort of between a low-top and a high-top sneaker.
They have never been worn, I've only tried them on for size. They will come in their original bag.

I paid 36 euros for them, the equivalent of a little over $50.
Asking $40 + $25 for shipping (shipping from the netherlands. sorry the shipping is such a lot! it's due to their weight. not asking more than the actual postage costs are.)
If you are interested or have any questions, please leave your e-mail address in the comments. Listing ends on Friday the 5th of August.
