I have had these Marsells for about a year, but they have been worn sparingly and carefully. These retailed for $1200 and I purchased them at Archive SF. They are reverse horse with a resin coated toe cap. The quality on these boots is really top notch... Marsell get a bad rap for lots of their stuff, but I think these are the best boots that they've made, by far. The leather quality, treatment, thickness and amazing texture is on par with better known, more expensive brands. Can be worn tucked/untucked. The boots are labeled a roomy 42, best for a 43 or 42.5 with thick socks/insole. Asking $525 $495 $399 + shipping. Or best offer.
