    pictures don't do this boot justice.

    these are the sold out Alden color #8 shell cordovan "Jumper Boots" that were a special makeup for Leather Soul. This pair is size 9.5D Trubalance fitting as these tend to run about a half size large (so they would be suitable for a US size 10). I bought these a couple of years ago and wore them only a handful of times, but they were not my preferred shoes! The uppers are in excellent condition with only the slightest lightening from bending at the toes (cordovan lightens when bent instead of darkening like other leather). The insides are completely clean and the shoes have always been wiped, and stored clean on shoe trees. All stitching is in excellent condition and the laces are original...and the laces are not imprinted with lots of "twisting" as happens when people haphazardly lace these up and pull the laces tight with twists.

    Note: these will not be delivered with shoe trees, but I will stuff the toes with tissue paper, put them in the original shoe bags, pack them in the original box, and then pack that in another shipping box - I've done this before (as my 100% positive feedback attests) and they will arrive to you in pristine condition.

    Ive included 4 photos are from the Leather Soul website and perhaps shows a better representation of the actual Color 8 coloring.

    From the original posting at Leather Soul:
    Modeled after 1940′s US Army parachutist jump boots, our newest Leather Soul exclusive Alden shoes are these shell cordovan “Jumper Boots.”
    Available now in burgundy color #8 shell cordovan, these boots are built on the Trubalance last for comfort and a casual look with a double leather sole for durability and ruggedness. Metal eyelets provide a vintage look, perfect for these throwbacks. Pair them with your 1947 repro jeans and you’re all set.
