These were floor samples, and consequently show only the slightest bit of shopwear to the crepe soles. I'm posting them here to check the pulse of the B&S before I list some other choice shoes. I'm wondering if the forum's still functioning well enough that a pair of basically new Cucinelli shoes can sell for $175 shipped in North America. These have leather uppers, leather insoles, leather lining, and Blake-stitched outsoles. The coloring is cordovan, and I've polished them with cordovan cream. They're tagged an EU 42, and I'd say they're a US 8.5D. Again, Priority Shipping is FREE in the United States and Canada. I'll also toss in the shoe trees.
