Thank you I hope I will. Great find for you with the Cape Buck!

Alas, Milan is mentioned.
Here are some pictures of the shoes:
As you can see on the box the model is called the "Auckland". It is also written inside the shoes, but the pictures i took of that were too blurred. There is a "weakness" in the leather on the inside of the left shoe where it wrinkles. It is as if this piece of leather is thinner than the other pieces on the shoe. The same piece is also a little prone to wrinkle under the shoelaces. The two small round leather pieces at the end of the lacing (I don't know what they are called?) have been glued I think, but the glue is slipping. I will just try to remove the remaining glue, as I don't see any use for it. I would think that this is what would be classified as a "second" shoe, but I think that it was to be expected with the price I paid. I will probably keep them.Edited by SHS - 9/21/12 at 11:09am
