Perhaps a small 9.5. Could be worth following:

Must be an older model--like the current Berkeley without the swan's neck. Looks like antiqued chestnut from the pictures, although seller says 'dark brown.'

I saw these last night...the toe boxes look overly stretched out to me.

Yes, a very good price. See Rider's post about the quality of Tremezza.

"....I still think the Tremezza line is one of the best values in the marketplace....great shoes. I don't even think Lobb can touch Tremezza quality....actually, I know a little about shoes, and I KNOW Lobb is not as well made as Tremezza's." from a post by Rider

That's nice, I haven't seen that particular Tramezza before. Shame/good it's not my size.

This one is 'interesting'

I've had a few Tramezza, and they are a true bargain. Their fit is a bit of a challenge to me at times. I've just never seen these styles of Tramezza before hence why I posted. It's not near my size thank goodness.

Sorry but I thought you were a 9.5 like me?

These aren't in my size, and I already own them, but these are awesome shoes for a low price for anyone in size 9.

These could be a good deal for someone. I have this model, also in black, and have found it to be ideal for more formal occasions. Despite the listing title, it's a balmoral, not a derby, and is a wholecut. I got mine new and had the soles trimmed a little and the sole edges refinished by a cobbler (about a $15 job) to make them a little sleeker. They are on the C&J 318 last, which is a very attractive one, to my eye at least, being pretty sleek without being as extremely so as the 348. The 318 is what Gaziano & Girling would call a "soft square last." The seller's pictures really don't present the shoes to advantage; they look better than that! They're no longer in the C&J catalog, although they were in the 2005/06 one. If you're interested, be careful about the stated size. I suspect it is given as 8 1/2 UK, which would really translate to 42.5 Euro, not 43, and to something on the order of 9 - 9.5 US--perhaps what might be called a 'small' 9.5. An e-mail to the seller would clarify this and answer any other questions.

Note width is given as UK D, so shoes should be 9.5C US, or close to that.

http://cgi.ebay.com/EDWARD-GREEN-CHE...QQcmdZViewItem
Again stated as 8.5D UK, so could be 9.5C US. Not the current EG Chelsea model, more likely the Cadogan.

http://cgi.ebay.com/EDWARD-GREEN-SEM...QQcmdZViewItem
Oh, OK. Here are the Chelseas. Seller got these mixed up with previous pair. But note size difference--stated as 8D UK, so theoretically 9C US.

http://cgi.ebay.com/EDWARD-GREEN-CAR...QQcmdZViewItem
Obviously, not the "Cardogan" (Cadogan), but the Dover. Again, some question about size.

So, clearly some careful checking with the seller is needed on these vis-a-vis size in particular. Also note seller's less-than-stellar history as an eBay seller. Still, could end up with a bargain here.
