Hi all, I am offering for sale an exceedingly rare and beautiful pair of Bettanin & Venturi fatto a Mano exclusively for Barneys chukka boots with a split chisel toe Norwegian construction. Â The uppers are constructed of a tan suede with a beautiful nap, and boots the heel and sole are thick enought to go well with jeans, cords, moleskins, and other elegant but casual (though not as casual as the Puma MY-7's I'm now wearing) weekend wear. Â The soles, carry the unmistakeable insignia of the Bettanin and Venturi company, and are finished a rich red brown. Â There is slight shop wear on the soles (they were at FB for a while, and those floors are not the most well maintained,) but the uppers are immaculate. Â As I said before, the suede used for the uppers are amazing. Bettanin & Venturi is not as well known as sme other brands, on the forum, but I am hoping that A Harris or another shoe guru will step it here. Â It is a respected company, and deservedly so. Â The retail on these is about $700 (this is a conservative estimate, they could easily be above $800). Â I am offering them here for $238, shipped within the United States. Â Shipping outside the US will incur additional shipping charges. Â PM me if you are interested. Â Paypal is greatly preferred at email@example.com Pictures below. Â The color of the suede is actually a little more golden than shown, but this is what the shoes look like under fluorescent lights on a rainy boston day.
