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.

    Made in Italy by FRATELLI BORGIOLI for RIDER BOOT COMPANY
    They are the OSLO model in antique micro-calf leather
    They are tagged size 11
    The inside length measures 11 3/4"

    These have been worn on carpet a few times to try on, and there is a little creasing - but have not been worn outside. I had my cobbler apply Vibram topy and Italian anti-slip heel - never worn after work.

    I am also including high quality Woodlore cedar shoe trees and Alden dust bags.

    The rest of the description I copied from the original Rider Boot site
    Sorry Ron!

    The 'Oslo' is a true 'Treccia' stitched, Norvegese construction, handsewn in the Goodyear method.
    Chukka boot available here in the handfinished 'Miro' calfskin.
    Treccia is often referred to in the States as 'Norvegese', but this would be, technically, incorrect.
    'Treccia' refers to the triple, intertwined, heavy linen thread that you see along the base of the upper, and that is handstitched thru the upper into a feather (ridge) cut into the underside of the insole. 'Norvegese' refers to the upper being pulled out (as opposed to under)away from the last where another stitch connects the upper to a full leather midsole, which is stitched thru to the outsole. As you can tell, a very complicated, labor intensive and extremely durable construction. To finish it off, we have hand sponged and stained the French Calf uppers in an antiqued effect.
    The chisel-toed last used on the 'Oslo' highlights both the work and the finishing.

    Original cost was $1375

    Appreciate that razl.


    These shoes are utterly beautiful - although they look wonderful in the pictures, only in-person can you appreciate the handwork and superb craftsmanship.

    I just have far too many shoes in my rotation and it is a shame for these to sit.

    For reference I wear:

    Alden 10.5 D or E - Barrie
    Alden 10.5 D - True Balance
    Alden 11 D - Plaza
    Alden 11 D or E - Aberdeen


    During try-on these were a little snug on me in the width, but not unbearable. Length was perfect.

    I hope this helps!
