    The austerity is the Widmer on the 8695 last but I don't recall the color.

    Worn no more than 2 times... :rolleyes:

    The owner must have worn the crap out of them the 2 times he wore them.

    I was thinking the same thing. How do you get that much wear on the waist in 2 wears unless you're walking in gravel for 2 days straight?

    Walking in Manhattan for 2 days would probably do that. Though the guy is in CA

    We spend more time driving than walking in California.

    ^^^Nice collection!

    On another note: I've seen the 9795 last noted as both "9795" and "9795R". Anyone knows what difference, if any, is hidden behind the "R"?

    I think that an S or an R behind any last number refers to Sale and Rejects, respectively.

    I am afraid I have to disagree. I am not referring to the R or S stamps in red that signify rejects or sale shoes. Rather I am talking about when the last number written in handwriting on the lining includes an R - "9795R".

    Nope, thats not it either. I've seen "9795R" many times with the standard original leather soles too.
