Be the envy of your Dover-wearing friends with these stunning apron-stitched split-toe Chambords. In thick and luxurious red-brown Meleze Buffalo (Lobbspeak for lightly grained calf) on the Commando sole, these really are exquisite in the flesh and I hope my mobile photos have done them justice. New and unworn. I bought them for myself having never tried the 8695 last (mea culpa) and they do not fit my low-arched feet. I considered stuffing the tongue and adding a through sock, but it would have been expensive surgery with no guarantee of cure. Hence I prefer to sell them on in an undefiled state. Please note these are factory seconds, clearly stamped 'R'. There is a small (< 1cm) scratch on the right shoe near the sole, a close-up of which is provided. This is unnoticeable when worn and would not have bothered me had they fit. However, I appreciate there are some aficionados for whom this minor imperfection would be a dealbreaker, so I wish to highlight it unequivocally. There are no other defects and the rest of the construction and finishing are to first standard. They come in the factory box with Lobb care card, but without bags and trees. Asking GBP 395 (USD 595, EUR 465). These retail at GBP 840 on Jermyn Street, so this is a chance to get a near-first pair of Lobbs at less than half price. Shipping within UK included in price, shipping elsewhere at cost. Having sold nothing on SF, I can offer only the feedback on my eBay profile (mostly, I'm afraid, as buyer) in lieu of proper credentials.
