Gentlemen, I offer a great opportunity for a classic boot in a C width:   Color 8 Shell Cordovan Barrie Last Size 9C 360° Flat Welt Black edge Commando Sole All eyelets — matched agatine Model 44668C Production Number 5G13 027 (July 2015)   These are essentially brand new. I have tried these on and make a few steps on carpet, hence the single crease.  Never worn outside.  Boot listing on Unionmade's site.   Alden box & bags included.  The box's model...

If they were my size, I would be the high bidder.
Loving this flotilla of Ravello gunboats. Just wishing I was part of the fleet!
I'm fooled again, and they are no less beautiful.  Where from?
