    Thank you, @Betelgeuse What's more is... That I also just picked these Santoni Urban Chukka Boots off of the Bay in my size for 150. So, 3 pairs of Santonis in a week for around $350.

    There are other pairs of New (With and without Box) in other sizes of these boots. But many of them seem to be between 2-3 hundred dollars. They are very comfy, and the leather is butter soft though. Very enjoyable shoe :)

    That shoe is called "Griffin". Got mine on sale over 10 years. The retail was around $500 back then. Up until a few years ago Sherman Brothers and I think TheShoeMart were selling them online for $1000+. Which Chicago store had them???

    Thanks for update. And actually old posts from you were one of a few I saw that led me to realize they were Griffins. I remember a few years back they were on sale on one of those sites. They had a non shell version for much less than the shell version for like $1k or more. I remember it because that was my first and only time seeing shell cordovan from Santoni. I thought this could be those when I bought them just didn't think there would be a brand new shoe in mint condition lying around from like nine years ago.

    They are gone from those sites now. There is one shoe archive type site that has them, shows the price at $1550! I wish they were size 12, but at 13 not yet sure what I'll do. If shoes are a little big that's fine, but once there is a heel slip I get concerned. Have only tried these on a few times so not yet sure if they will or won't work.

    Randomly found them at the Chicago Ave store.
