    I don't understand all of the love for these shoes. They look like you shot yourself in the foot.

    they had gloves in the same colour with the same buckshot design, lined in something very soft, maybe cashmere I think.

    My gf bought me a pair a couple of years ago, best birthday present ever.

    They are unique. I really dig them.

    I'm a 9.5/10. If you sell in that size, talk to me. I've been wanting that shoe forever too.

    Also member distinctive has a pair of the loafers in buckshot US size 11 in his current FS thread on the front page of B&S as we speak. $250 I think.

    They had these in stock at 1 Savile row when I was last there to pick up some trousers.
    If I remember correctly they are made by Cheaney and were retailing for around £180.

    I'm actually starting a new job next week and moving to an office within a five minute walk. I'll drop by and ask about these during lunch, if I get a chance.

    yeah these WERE all over ebay mid-late last year.
    interesting that they're apparently nowhere to be found now.

    Does anyone know what they retailed for? and the average price they were being sold on ebay for?

    I think I read somewhere it was about 500-600 new?

    Probably due to end of season sales...

    I'm all for the Buckshot Brogue, but you're not steezing right unless you've got the buckshot goon hand.

    +1. First reaction: Ah, that's different! Considered reaction: Not in a good way.

    I can't see myself ever wanting or wearing those. If you like the look, why don't you just DIY? It would be really easy to shoot each shoe with a round of buckshot. That would probably save you a lot of trouble and money if you can't find them easily.

    Unfortunately city living makes it difficult to justify owning a shotgun. At least in certain Canadian ones. If you did go that route, I can imagine you'd end up blasting the whole front off!! Alternatively, I guess you could punch out various sized holes, but then you'd need to put another layer on the inside. Unless you wanted increased ventilation! Hah
