I'm passing on the really good deal I got in these (factoring in shipping and whatnot, I'm taking a bit of a loss).

This is my first pair of Hender Schemes and I was really impressed by the quality. They just look and feel really great. For how many layers of leather they have on the sole, they are really comfortable. Much easier to wear than my Heinrich Dinkelacker X Junya Watanabe shoes, for example, which have a similarly thick leather sole. The only thing I would do change about the MIP-14s is to have a cobbler put a rubber half-sole on the parts of the bottoms that are leather.

They are in great, lightly used condition. The leather sole is a little scuffed as these soles tend to be after a few wears. The heel shows almost no signs of wear.

They're size 6, which I'd say fits like a 10.25E if that makes any sense. For sizing reference, I am a 10.5D on the Brannock, wear a 10E in Alden Barrie, and would be between 43 and 44 in CPs if such a size existed. These are really comfortable in width, but they feel a tiny bit short for my feet. The part where I'm uncertain is that I can't tell if they feel that way because my foot is sliding forward due to my having a narrow heel or if the shoes are actually a bit shorter than a standard 10.5.
