Will Ship To: Anywhere
Made in Italy by FRATELLI BORGIOLI for RIDER BOOT COMPANY
They are the OSLO model in antique smoke calf leather

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
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).
