Carmina x Epaulet Ruby Shell Cordovan Captoe Brogues worn about 5 times in new condition. You can still see all the stitching on the sole and these shoes are immaculate. In a lovely Ruby Red color these shoes will make any outfit standout amongst the crowd. They're a size 8.5UK on the Queens last (again, fit my 9.5D US foot). retail was over $800 on the custom order iirc. Asking $599.99
