This is a really hard shoe to explain as I expect only real aficionados will be interested in this pair - it's made of eal leather, a true delicacy in terms of footwear. I can honestly say out of the five pair I bought for sale purposes I wound up keeping one because I really needed another pair of shoes like a hole in the head! I'll add there is curious effect to them when rained on; they do get wet but seem to have a natural immunity to it in terms of maintaining there shine - very nice! This is my first add, thanks for looking and feel free to like and share. Payment is most easily conducted through paypal, but feel free to drop in and try them on and buy them direct, I am located in Amsterdam. I'll ship to anywhere, as long as the shipping is covered by the buyer.
