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.

Second or not, that's a nice-looking pair of shoes.  It's a pity if the quality control has slipped these days, but I'm very happy with my post-Prada Church's so far.  A bit of TLC and a solid pair of trees, and I'm sure these will turn out to be a good buy for you.  It was certainly a good price.

A bit more subdued than many of Maurizi's offerings... which is a Good Thing (IMO)! Congrats, look very nice.

I agree, they do look like pretty nice shoes. That issue on the side of the shoe looks like an improper lasting issue to me. Welt stitched to upper was just a bit off. Shouldn't cause any real problems, though. Congrats.

Then they would be the EG Galway, which I would love to get. Hopefully Leffot stocks my size this season.

Toffee-coloured calf uppers, double-soles with an odd terraced construction (bengalstripe, you know the proper term, right?), single buckle, red piping around the ankle, plump toes.

several years ago Marshall's had many of these in this color and some in black on sale for less than $70. I wish I had brought at least one pair:(

Answer from Church's regarding the model "Auckland":

"This style was produced over the 73 last in the late 1990s, it is now discontinnnued. We have a similar styles called Lancaster, you can see this on the web site under ‘Heavy Soles’."

My shoes are old!
