Ha! My Brownvello PTBs are an interesting adventure. I got a 9.5D during my 2014 9.5D experiment, which massively failed. I sold all my 9.5Ds as they just hated my feet. I then found a 10.5B on eBay, which I now own, but man, they took quite a beating. Frankly, I think Kathy made them for me until I told her I picked up a pair from SF and so she sold them without mentioning them to me. I mean, how many others get a 10.5B and I know it's from DC...
I had to do a lot of brushing to get them back into order.
I hope that I can get mine back to the condition yours are in someday!
