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.

    A rare opportunity to purchase an unworn pair of shoes by Georg Materna of Vienna. They are beautiful, as I hope the photos show. They are in brown box calf, and come with their dustbags, but not their original boxes.

    They seem to have been in storage for quite a while, but unlike the other pair I have do not seem to be creased as a result. However, they are missing padded heelbeds. I would assume that a decent cobbler could put some in without too much expense.

    When a load of NOS from this maker were sold in 2010, the price for box calf was 790 Euros (£665). That seller was better-know around here than me and probably accepted returns, so my price will be £450. That will include fully-insured shipping worldwide.

    Since I cannot accept returns, do check the measurements below. If it would be convenient for anybody, they would be welcome to come around to my house (south London, zone 2) to try them on.

    Length along bottom of sole, with tape-measure held taut: 28.5cm
    Width of sole at widest point: 10cm
    Width of insole at mid-heel: 6.75cm

    "5" is a very narrow width, correct?
