    These are some lightly-worn Aldrich cap toe dress shoes in Dark Cherry (burgundy with brown tone) leather. You can see from the very light wear of the information on the inside the shoe and the sole that they have only been worn a few times. There are some light marks that will largely disappear with a good polish/shine, but they present well as-is.

    These are probably 10+ years old, and hand-made when J&M's high-end line was still made with excellence, part of their "Aristocraft" line. These shoes feature the "trampoline system" for excellent comfort. They are a goodyear welted design, and are refurbishable by any cobbler or Johnston Murphy (fully rebuilt for around $100). Search "johnston and murphy aldrich cap toe" for information and reviews on their site - it is one of their highest-rated dress shoes. The current model of these (Aldrich II) sell for $275. For a full-price offer I'll throw in the shoe bag for travel, etc. I can add shoe trees (Jos.A.Bank) for $10.

    I'm selling because I rarely wear them and have recently purchased others that overlap. They're in great shape and will give you years of comfortable service!
