Hate to let these go, but I'm not wearing them enough to justify them. Purchased new from Barney's. These are really amazing. Toebox is very slightly lifted to get that ninja/SZ look. Zips curve and are hidden. Leather is insane -- hard to describe other than they have been treated to have a slight wrinkled/paper effect (I included a pair of recent RO sneakers which seem to use a similar process and are a good representation. These have been worn but not much. All wear is pictured. Vibrammed and heel tapped since day 1. Color is a beautiful dark not-quite-black. Hints of gray and blue. As with everything else about these, if you look closer you'll see the attention to detail and more is revealed. Hate to get like that over a pair of boots, but these deserve it. Quality is on par with CCP, C Diem, etc. If you're looking for the perfect black boot, you've found it. You're not going to come across these again. Priced to sell ASAP. Price includes shipping CONUS. Buyer pays fees. Feel free to PM me any questions.
