Lionel, thanks for all your help and greetings to Switzerland!

Sysdoc,

You're welcome! I'm glad you won the Malverns, enjoy them!

Have a very nice day,

Lionel

Can't wait to see those boots after you shine them up Z, they are spectacular!

I doubt they will shine up much, they look to be made from that pre-distressed leather you see often see on the Lattanzi/Jil Sander shoes... It is distressed and then shellacked from the looks of it. I don't think it will take much polish. I could be wrong though, could be bad photography.

Sadly, I got outbid on both of those Jil Sanders.
We were talking about another pair of boots - some Lobbs.

I agree that they will be a tough sale, but they are gorgeous. I am fairly certian that this is on the P2 last.

I think it's F last.

Here's a nice pic.

It seemed that the F has a slightly more narrow toe ox than the P2, but it's hard to tell from the angle of this photo.

Thanks in advance

Don't be too sure. My first ebay sale, and probably only my 6th transaction was a pair of Vass shoes I bought from LAGuy that didn't quite fit. They sold for $680. Vass shoes are rare enough now that I think they'll sell.

I know the boot is F last. That's all I know.

If U last size 44 fits me quite well, is F last (if that's the last) in size 43.5 too small?

I should probably save for the Budapest trip for proper fittings and better prices.
