Crockett and Jones - Bedford model - size 8G - price DROP - $325 (Canadian)

Brand: Crockett Jones

Model: Bedford

Made in England with a Goodyear welt. Shoes can be recrafted to give it extended life.

Size: 8G (UK size). I have another pair of CJ and the 8G fits fine. However, these pair are too small for me. I believe they fit more like 7.5G. So for US size, I believe these fit more like 8EE or 8EEE.

Condition: Used. But I had these recrafted completely. As you can see, I asked for JR soles (premium German oak tanned soles that are used on a lot of premium shoes like Alden and Allen Edmond's shell cordovan line). The inside heel linings, corks and welts were all replaced. The insole was also replaced, but the cobbler used Church's insole. There are cracks on the sides, as previous owner clearly didn't use shoe trees. I'm applying several rounds of conditioner on the leather. These shoes have lots of life left in them. I can provide more pics.

Background story: I originally bought these for myself on eBay. But realized they don't fit. I decided to recraft them anyways. Perhaps someone else can have a nice pair of CJ shoes.

Price: Price dropped to $325 Canadian. Open to reasonable offers. Also open to trading for my size. UK size is 8/8.5G. US size is 8.5/9EEE. Suit size is 40R, waist 34 and inseam 29/30. Shirt size is 15.5 and 33.5

Shipping: I will ship anywhere in Canada at costs. In my experience, Canada Post will charge about $20 for shipping. If you're in the USA, let me know. I can find out what the shipping rate is. Will only ship to Canada and US.

Or get creative! Will trade for gift certificates I can use in Canada, or other items that I could use. I will respond to all inquiries.
