    I purchased these absolutely amazing Edward Green Westminster Double Monk Straps in Black Calf from Leffot in New York on January 31, 2012 (see redacted photo of proof of purchase). Unfortunately for me, I purchased the wrong size (totally my fault). I discovered that fact while wearing them the next day for approximately 2 hours, which also involved a short trip outside, so I couldn't exchange them for another size.

    SO- since I had to purchase the right size pair, these are up for sale in order to recoup as much of the original purchase price as possible, but still less than actual retail.

    The shoes are on the Edward Green 888 last and are sized UK 8.5/US 9. They really are a US 9, even though often a UK 8.5 is more like a US 9.5.

    They have minimal, if any creasing in the leather on the forefoot and no interior wear whatsoever (the Edward Green and Leffot embossing is still present). HOWEVER, they do have scuffing on the soles and heels, as the pictures indicate. They are essentially brand new, imagine having had an extended try-on session with a quick trip outdoors-those are these shoes.

    All original packaging is included, such as the box, care booklet, two (2) shoe bags, felt shoe box liner/divider, and foam shoe divider.

    THEY ALSO COME WITH THE $130.00 LASTED SHOE TREES.

    Retail for these shoes is $1,150.00 and the lasted trees are $130.00. With the $113.60 of sales tax in New York City, the retail total for this package is $1,393.60. According to Steven at Leffot, the price on these shoes is likely to increase soon, although he didn't have any exact details yet.

    I am prepared to let these go for less than total retail, so if you have ever thought about a pair of these beauties in a US 9, here is a chance to save a little.

    PAYPAL only. Please contact me with any questions whatsoever. I WILL ALSO PAY FOR SHIPPING IN THE CONUS via USPS Priority or UPS/Fed Ex Ground (please contact me for a shipping quote if you need international shipping or if you would like faster shipping options- I will pay up to the USPS Priority flat rate shipping amount and you will be responsible for any shipping amount above and beyond that).

    Photos above-please feel free to contact for additional or specific photos not posted above, or for any measurements, etc. Will entertain all reasonable offers.

    EDIT: DROP to $1,100.00 $1,000.00 $800.00 OBO (4/1/12)

    C'mon m8, insert some foam inserts and tongue pads and you're cooking with grease.

    Not trying to "sell" you at all...but...have you tried the 888 last on at all? I thought I needed a US 9 but had to go to a US 9.5, but that could just be me.

    Beautiful shoes. ½ size too small for me, but the right buyer will be happy.
