For Sale:
NEW FRATELLI BORGIOLI FOR RIDER BOOT OSLO CHUKKA BOOT, ANTIQUE SMOKE, NORVEGESE $1375, US 11

Will Ship To: Anywhere

Made in Italy by FRATELLI BORGIOLI for RIDER BOOT COMPANY
They are the OSLO model in antique smoke calf leather
Comes with Rider Boot shoe bags.
They are tagged size 11 but they run generous in length
The inside length measures 11 3/4"

 

These have been worn on carpet a few times to try on, and there is a little creasing - but have not been worn outside. I had my cobbler apply Vibram topy and Italian anti-slip heel - never worn after work. 

 

I am also including high quality Woodlore cedar shoe trees in addition to the Rider Boot shoe bags. 

 

The rest of the description I copied from the original Rider Boot site
Sorry Ron!


The 'Oslo' is a true 'Treccia' stitched, Norvegese construction, handsewn in the Goodyear method.
Chukka boot available here in the handfinished 'Miro' calfskin.
Treccia is often referred to in the States as 'Norvegese', but this would be, technically, incorrect.
'Treccia' refers to the triple, intertwined, heavy linen thread that you see along the base of the upper, and that is handstitched thru the upper into a feather (ridge) cut into the underside of the insole. 'Norvegese' refers to the upper being pulled out (as opposed to under)away from the last where another stitch connects the upper to a full leather midsole, which is stitched thru to the outsole. As you can tell, a very complicated, labor intensive and extremely durable construction. To finish it off, we have hand sponged and stained the French Calf uppers in an antiqued effect.
The chisel-toed last used on the 'Oslo' highlights both the work and the finishing.
 

Original cost was $1375
You can have them for $450 shipped (US only).

I can't believe these are still around. I love that color scheme; I'd rock those with some navy or darker charcoal flannels.

These shoes are utterly beautiful - although they look wonderful in the pictures, when they are in yoru possession in the flesh, only then can you appreciate the handwork and superb craftsmanship. 

 

I just have far too many shoes in my rotation and it is a shame for these to sit.

 

Also, if someones is interested in purchasing both pairs (I am selling these in Antique Micro Calf (burgundy) and in Antique Smoke Grey) - I am sure we can come to a mutually satisfying arrangement.
