For Sale:
Even MOAR DROPS! Lodger desert boots, pristine suede, UK7.5

Will Ship To: Anywhere

Crockett and Jones "Edgware"
Asking SOLD not inclusive of shipping.
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Worn a handful of times. I don't think the 348 last agrees with me. I have also discovered I prefer a rounder toe. I've tried to leave the pictures unaltered, but they might be a little dark.

Details (product page)
Dark brown burnished calf
Plenty of life in soles (I would rate 8/10)
One of C&J's most popular lasts... the sophisticated, chisel-toed, 348. Perfect for this town shoe.
Does not include trees.

Sizing
UK8 E fitting
348 last

Lodger "Cardington" desert boot

Details (product page)
Snuff suede
Made in England
Crepe soles
Buttery soft uppers
Two eyelet
Comes with slide-out box, tags and bamboo-fibre shoe bags

To note
Soles have some caked on grime on them. I'll brush them off before sale, but these are crepe soles, so you should expect some of that.
Bought from The Armoury.
These run a little long, maybe half a size, which is one reason why I'm selling them.

Sizing
UK 7.5

Stuart's Choice double monks by Grenson
Asking USD410->USD370-->320->SOLDflat with free shipping. Stuart's Choice retails for USD600+ and I don't think they are made by Grenson anymore. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
After coveting this pair for some time, I finally snagged them, only to realise that I don't really like monkstraps. Wore them one two or three occasions.

Details
Made by Grenson to Masterpiece standards. The consensus is that this is on par with Edward Green and C&J Handgrade.
Soles are 9/10
Chanelled soles
Snuff suede is still deep, rich, and the nap unmolested
I don't know what last this is, but it's got a slight chisel to it, while maintaining a generally round toe.
Nice matte (brass?) hardware. None of that garish silver stuff.
Slim single soles.
Made in England

Sizing
US 9D fitting
Marked 8008/54 in the shoe
Fits true to size.

To note
The elastic bands connected to the buckles are quite frayed. I don't know why this is, but it doesn't seem to affect the shoe.
No bag, box or trees.
