    Are you saying it's a lighter green Wes?

    Actually, it's nothing like the vibrant turquoise shade we've come to associate with EG, i.e. (pic from a pair I sold):

    The box shown in that listing is best described as a dusty/dull hunter green... The seller's pic is a fairly accurate representation of the colour (perhaps the only thing accurate about that listing).

    Fwiw, I'm not the unfortunate buyer of those 'new' Berkeleys, but I have just received a pair of Asquith back from an EG factory recraft, sent in a similar dk. green box.

    A bit surprised these are still around after 12 hours.

    Allen Edmonds brown suede/leather spectators (don't know the model name), size 8.5D, BIN $60. They're my size, but just can't justify another pair of shoes right now.

    I believe the brownish-green box is just from older pairs, not necessarily re-crafted pairs.

    Yes and fairly recent MTO's.

    Auction doesn't list these as shell cordovan, but the soles clearly say "genuine shell cordovan"

    If they are for Barney's, they are US sized.

    Very good value for a new pair though. You don't lose either way [​IMG] .
