I don't wear these enough to justify keeping - I've only worn them about 10 times. Bought these from Alden of Carmel at $485 and feature: full leather linings, leather insoles, cork mid-soles, leather & rubber "commando" outsoles, true Goodyear welt construction, and steel shank. These are truly fantastic boots that will work formally as well as casually with jeans. I'll ship them with the original box and shoe bags. These are on the Barrie last, so they fit a size 11. I've kept them bagged with cedar trees. The color is most accurate in the photo where I'm showing the tread.
