Apologies 8 UK (9 US).
Carmina Shoemaker Oxford with U-Wing. A style collaboration between Skoaktiebolaget and Carmina Shoemaker, presented here in classic Brown Calf. Rain last (normal fitting last), Tomir Rubber sole. Made in Spain.   Postage 50 USD world wide.
Model: 80277 Wingtip Boot   Size: UK 8.0/US 9.0 Last: Llubi (generous fitting)  Upper: Horween Chromexcel leather Sole: Victoria rubber sole    Full brogue boot in stunning natural Horween Chromexcel leather. Goodyear welt constructions with Victoria rubber sole and calf lining.   Condition is well loved but with a few years life in them.
The black varieties have a coat applied to them like Church's - they're certainly not full grain leather. I preferred the brown varieties without the coating, but again, they're not full grain.Interestingly DJs now stock Church's which are clearly better made but use similar leather - and they cost $750!
Apologies if this is old news but Trenery are selling tasteful goodyear welted shoes for under $300 http://www.trenery.com.au/shop/menswear/the-tailoring-store/the-goodyear-welt When I saw them in DJ's yesterday I was a underwhelmed by the leather quality but I've been spoiled by C&J, Barker and Carmina. Trenery had some nice, casual linen in too along with a very well made odd jacket in blue. Nice to see any example of tasteful and accessible menswear in Oz especially...
