    Brooks Brothers Black Fleece Cordovan Boots 9D. Some light wear ... Caught one snow storm ... But they are beautiful as you can see. This cordovan is very rich and I have only brushed the boots. No paste, cream or Reno used thus far. These boots have always been treed and well taken care of. Probably 10 miles max on them. $625 as these retail for $1k. Free US Domestic shipping. PM if interested.

    I have the dainite sole version from Pearl & Co., I think that was on 240 last, C&J has a boot just like this on 341 last. So you're saying this is on 240 last?

    yep sir. As seen in the second picture. The reason Peal Co has leather sole version is because CJ made mistake. They are supposed to make dainite version only. Story was told by 2 sales in 2 different BB store.

    I wouldn't sell it if I were the original poster, these are my go to cordovan boots, and I beat the hell out of it, still looks great ( rain, snow and some mud by accident... good thing my wasn't leather sole). Someone should grab it!

    P.S. When did they make this mistaked version, don't think I ever came across them

    haha good to see you enjoying it!!

    The mistaked version actually comes along w/ the correct version. I knew it since I got the leather sole version first, after ordering online. Then I went to my neighbor to change them to dainite version...
