^ I love how he puts "purchased new these shoes cost $414.00", yet the ones he's selling are completely beat to shit. It boggles my mind why people try to sell shoes in this condition....I wouldn't even waste my time taking those to a thrift store to donate.

Thank goodness I'm not in SF today. I would have probably walked over there during my lunch break

I paid a little north of that after tax for my pair. After eBay takes it's cut, the seller may not even recoup his entire out-of-pocket investment.

Absolutely beautiful boots! Plaza last? I can't wait until I have a pair of shell plaza boots to call my own. I put in my deposit for the whiskey plaza wingtip boot at Epaulet, but that's still at least a year off.

Exactly. After the eBay and PayPal fees, and the included free shipping the seller would likely be losing money. Frankly, these shoes are indeed quite rare and unavailable for the forsee-able future like the seller says. If I were wanting a pair I'd snap those up. 

 

(I put the link above to the one I'm talking about, so people don't think I'm referring to the "Barrier last" listing which is a different seller).

Looking to start my search for the Chukka.  I won't be using these for dress.  So the color is the question, I've seen both the Whiskey and Cigar in this model, both look smashing, wondering how the Ravello might look.  Ravello just might be the most versatile but wonder if it has that Wow factor?  Of course the #8 looks fine too but maybe a touch dressy for my wardrobe. I don't have to wear suits anymore.  Jeans, chino's blazers ...Thoughts cousins?

guys, i just scored these on ebay, and I am trying to figure out the last.
i know leather soul did this shoe once and it was the Leydon last (which i hope this is). but the LS version did not have a storm welt as this does, and I can't find any other store that did this model, let alone with a storm welt.
thoughts?

Frans Boone parajumpers arrived this morning. Pre-wear photos below. Fortunately it appears as if Grant last 11D works for me. It's just slightly snug now and should break in nicely. This compares to 10.5E/11D for Barrie. Hope to start wearing these shortly, and will post photos in action.




Also thought I'd post a copy of the insert Frans Boone sends that describes return policies, which seem pretty good to me. This may be on their site somewhere, but I haven't looked.

That is NOT barrie. Please go back and check my post. Barrie lasted stitching is round, while on the Trubalance it is softly-squared. See frans boone pics.
