1. Hi. We moved systems, and because it was impossible to achieve feature parity between the systems, we opted to archive the old B&S threads but allow users to read them so that they can put them into our new B&S system.

    There is a support thread if you have any issues.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    I had these up before the big crash, so I guess I'll have to put them up again.

    These beautiful babies are sized 8/8.5 E on the 202 last. They're burgundy, and they're just simply beautiful.

    They're too tight for me, and rather risk ruining them, I'm going to pass them on to a better home.

    Asking for $375 shipped.

    If they were my size, I wouldn't hesitate.

    Agreed. Are these the kind of deals that were coming out of the Asprey sale? If so, I understand the fuss much better.

    If only I weren't broke ... they're a lot sleeker and, frankly, more beautiful than the similarly styled Crockett-made boot I've been eyeing at Polo.

    The boots should have no trouble being sold on eBay. The last pair was sold for over $400.

    I have this boot and someone needs to jump on this at $325. This is an incredible deal for a boot you likely will never see agian.

    Indeed it is. If only they were a slightly larger size. [​IMG]

    Apologies for hijacking your thread but I have the same boots in black (new in box) in size 8.5/9 and would consider selling them. If these burgundy ones are too tight for you, the size 8.5/9 should do fine. You can always do what sysdoc did to this lobb and strip the black color out [​IMG]

    How slightly? I'm between a 10.5 and 11 US and my UK10 ("10/10.5") Asprey boots fit perfectly - in fact they are probably the most comfortable dress shoes I own. If you're a small 9, give these a shot.

    I'm a narrow size 10. For some reason with boots I need to size down a full size. If these were 9's, they'd be good for me.

    Hah- I didn't notice you were the one selling them. I thought someone was interested but felt he might be just over the size limit. In any case, some size 8.5-9US should take these, they really are nice.
