These are black shell Rider Boot balmoral captoes. I have had them for about 5 years and they were only worn in the winter months, but never in the snow or rain. The originally cost me pre-tax $1,175. Fantastic condition except for a bit of a crack in the insole in one of the shoes. It is really hard to get in a photo, but I never noticed it walking around in them, or anything. I just happened to feel it when I took out the laces and was conditioning the insides. Probably not an issue for a cobble to address when they are due for a resole. Also, on the right shoe you can see in the photo there is a slight tear at one of the eyelets. Very, very slight, not noticeable for daily wear. These are US 9.5's but fit more like a US 10, for comparison purposes I wear a UK 9 in C&J, UK 9 in Saint Crispins. These boots come with unmarked shoe bags and lasted cedar shoe trees. They have channeled soles with flush metal toe taps. Ask all questions as all sales are final. Good luck.
