Hey you guys, I got hold of a pair of dark brown boxcalf U-Last Norwegian Derbies in a size 45. Â Comes with the original box (unfortunately a little knocked about.) and shoe bags, but not the Vass shoehorns. Â Tried on but unworn, and in mint condition. Â Not a mark on the soles. Â Of all the Vass lasts, the U lasts are the most expensive, excepting the boots. Â The original retail price at Louis Boston was $1195. Â My price to Styleforum members is $600 shipped (within the continental US - others pay actual shipping). Â Boston members who can pay cash and can pick up get an additional discount. Â The actual color of the shoe is a deep chestnut brown, a little lighter than these pictures appear. Â The shape of the shoe is truly magnificent, with a terrific elongated chiselled toebox. Â I would keep them if I could afford them, and I never wear anything but sneakers.Â A *lot* darker than shown on the site. Also, have a pair of dark brown boxcalf Prada mainline chelsea boots, also new (stickers still on the bottom of the shoes), with the famous crisscrossed rubber soles. Â Size 10 Prada, which is about size 11 US in this case(just tried them on, and they fit me - a sightly wide US 11 - perfectly.) Â Pretty nice, especially useful for those who need to tramp around town in winter conditions, but don't want to sacrifice style. Â Come with Neil Barrett shoe cloths in a Miu Miu box. Â Wierd mix and match, but I am out of Prada boot boxes and bags, and there are significant connections between all three brands. The usual retail price is about 450 USD. Â I will let them go for $150 shipped. Â Same Boston discount applies. Take a look. You guys have until Tuesday to get back to me. Â After that, if there is no interest, both pairs will get ebayed. Â Well, I may keep the Prada boots; but the Vass will go up for auction for sure. Â Save us both some money now.
