1. Hi. We moved systems, and because it was impossible to achieve feature parity between the systems, we opted to archive the old B&S threads but allow users to read them so that they can put them into our new B&S system.

    There is a support thread if you have any issues.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    Price drop!

    Really hate to sell these, my first pair of super high quality boots from artisan bootmaker Augusta (now called A Diciannoveventitre).

    Bought them used off eBay hoping the sizing would work but in the end they are just about 1 size too large for me. I even had them vibrammed and new heels put on, but after walking around outside for a while they are just a bit too loose even with an insole.

    Leather on these is amazing. Augusta uses extremely thick, supple leather - no lining, just a super high quality thick hide. This gives them beautiful creasing and aging as they wear in, as these have. Apart from the surface wear though these are in great condition; the zippers are still super smooth.

    If you're not familiar with Augusta, take a browse through their current lineup at Barneys, selling for >$2k a pair. These are definitely a cut above my Fiorentini+Baker's and Officine Creative boots in terms of craftsmanship and especially in the quality of the leather.

    Sizing: these are stamped 42 on the outsole and 43 on the insole, and they definitely fit quite large for a 42. Outsole measures 32.5cm. I would say they are close to a 10.5, maybe an 11. They are too large for me and I usually wear a size 9.5 or 10 with an insole (my foot measures 10.25", for reference).

    The original seller on eBay said they were bought at L'Eclaireur in Paris for 1900 Euros (~US$2400).

    Selling for $550 --> $500 shipped in CONUS. International shipping based on quoted rates.
