This is the model that I have been coveting for years.
It is Echt Dinkelacker!
I have it on good authority these shoes were favored
by higher officers of the STASI.
After almost a year of watching I finally took the plunge (when the euro/dollar conversion was at its best) Black shell cordovan.
Ordered directly from http://www.menshoes.de/en/. Katrin took good care of me. Delivery took 2 weeks DHL, no import fees.
Shoes are very well made, generous fit, on the wide side. I ordered a full size down from my US size. Fit is roomy but I didn't want to go smaller. Thick socks will help fill them out.
