Up for sale is a used, well-cared for pair of dark brown Audleys in size 6UK. This is on the 337 last. I am selling because they fit tighter than my other 337 shoes so if this last is a tight fit for you, I would not buy this. They have been resoled once with John Rendenbach soles and flush metal toe plates (cost $160). They have only been worn twice since then.

Can anyone comment on how their pair of calfskin Chelsea boots have creased? Wondering if they crease any more or less than a lace-up wholecut, being a slip-on. All the pictures here are of brand new shoes, but I want to consider how they look after being worn.
