    Move quickly: C&J for BB Algonquin pebble grain split toes for $169!!! This is $30 cheaper than the recent BB clearance when they were $198!

    I bought a pair at the BB sale, and find myself wearing them ALL the time. Very nice shoes.


    Agreed. I love them so much that I just had to resist buying a second pair.

    They are extremely comfortable out of the box. The second time I wore these shoes was to the HK Electronics Fair where I was on my feet for the entire day. Thanks to these shoes my sensitive feet came out unscathed.

    [​IMG] Did anyone here report my Cleverley boots as fake? If so, I've been SF member since last June. I don't reply very often but I have read and learned a great deal. I feel a bit betrayed. Please PM me with your concerns with the boots. Ebay wants me to get them authenticated. How do I authenticate a pair of 30 year old bespoke Cleverley boots? I doubt Cleverley will authenticate just looking at a picture. Ebay says they require a COA with everything they sell. Complete nonsense(especially with clothes). I always go by the sellers feedback and pictures. Also, I'm in Montgomery, Alabama. There are exactly zero high end shoe dealers here. Thanks for putting up with my rant. I'm sure it wasn't anyone here. I might put them up in the FS section. I'll post some pictures later tonight to get your opinions. I'd stake my life on their authenticity. This really bothers me. I need to lay off the caffeine.[​IMG]

    The folks at Cleverley are very nice. I bet if you sent them pictures of the boots they would tell you whether or not they were the real deal.

    That's an absurd claim, they are clearly restored by Cleverly.

    I agree. All it takes is for one person to question an item on Ebay for them to cancel an auction. I can't believe they told me all clothing items need a COA. I could personally shut down 90% of all the clothes auctions right now. I even had 29 watchers. No big deal. I've calmed down. Hopefully, Cleverley will clear up everything.

    The COA is just silly, but also be careful with your keyword spamming. That'll get your listing removed as well and may likely have been the cause.

    HGCROSBY's boots are Cleverley bespoke. They only use that logo on their bespoke. The George Cleverley RTW logo is cursive script.

    Maybe the removal was karma for pushing your own shit in this thread?
