These are first quality; they've only been removed from the box and put on a shoe rack in a closet for a few months before returning to the box. Never tried on or worn - see photo of soles. The first photo is probably the most accurate representation of color.
For sizing, I recommend these at a US 9D. I own another identical pair of these, and they fit me perfectly. For reference, I wear a 9D (or US equivalent from UK sizing, which varies from 8 UK to 8.5 UK by maker - in Edward Green, an 8.5 UK is a 9 US) in almost all lace-up shoes. They are a medium (D) fit.
These retail between $1200 on sale to $1395 regular retail (what I paid for them, excluding tax). Other than being removed from box and put on a shoe rack for a few months before returning to shoe bags/box, they're completely brand new. The only signs of 'wear' are from being removed from bags and stored on a shoe rack - there are two very small 'scuffs' in the suede at the front left bottom of toe and on the inner side of one shoe; they can be easily removed with a suede brush but I opted not to do so for, for complete transparency (as mentioned, I own another identical pair which I brush regularly with no issue). Feel free to ask any questions, request additional photos or make an offer!
