This is an awesome pair of dark chocolate brown suede boots by Andrea Ventura. Never heard of the brand - I don't think it is sold here in the States. They look to be Blake/Rapid, though it's the best Blake I've ever seen. The stitching is so close to the edge of the insole on the inside that I thought they were Goodyear at first. The sole work is on the same level as Harris/Barrett/Peluso etc. except the beveled/fiddleback waist is better, as is the quality of the suede and the upper. The suede is much richer looking in person. Great last, very reminiscent of the Vass U. Marked a British size 10, and they look to fit a US 11 medium. They measure 12.5 x 4 3/8. New in the box and perfect, dust bag included. Retail would be at least $750. I was hoping to squeeze into these, but no dice. Very cool boots! $249 obo, no returns, paypal preferred. First to PM me gets them.
