Item for Sale
Size 8.5D Alden/Fransboone CIGAR Shell Cordovan. Barrie Last. Mint Condition

Item Description
Offered is a rare and never-to-be-offered-again pair of Alden/Fransboone shell cordovan PTB's. These shoes have recently been restored by Aram from ahonshoes. The crepe soles were replaced with double-leather and further enhanced with a high-quality topy to extend the life of the soles. They have the coveted 'antique' edging/trim that makes the shoes really pop. The brass eyelets are original from Alden. These shoes are unavailable and will never be offered again. The shade of cigar is rarely seen in these days of dark cigar shell. These are truly a beautiful pair of shoes and have been worn sparingly as a part of a larger rotation. Minimal scuffing and creases as I take pretty good care of my shoes. Please examine the pictures closely and understand your Barrie sizing as there are absolutely no returns. Though they aren't listed in the pictures, these shoes will ship in their original green Alden box. For an additu$25, shoes will ship with Alden branded shoe trees and bags. As stated, these shoes were formed on the Barrie last. Please understand your Alden size as I cannot accept returns. The last picture includes a pair of 9B King gunboats that I am also considering selling. Feel free to make me an offer. Domestic shipping is $12. Please contact me for international shipping quote.

A few items of note:

• High-quality double-leather soles and topy added to enhance and extend life of soles
• Coveted style/color combination that rarely is available on the after-market

Seller Background - Important
I am an avid ebayer, mostly buyer but occasional seller. Lately my items sold include shoes (both high-end and moderate price), high-end watches, briefcases, and women purses. You should check my seller feedback and you will see that I have perfect ratings. You will also notice the glowing feedback on my recent sale of Alden's. The reasons are many, all of my items are ready for immediate use. No need for resoles, repairs, or even shines. I own so many that none of them get much use and as such, are in great shape. Additionally, my prices are the best on eBay. I'm not trying to get rich. Simply to move some high-quality merchandise at great prices. Lastly, I follow through on my transactions. Shipping speed is commensurate with payment speed. I love eBay and do everything I can to ensure a smooth transaction and satisfied customer. This recent batch of merchandise is easily my best yet. A little of everything and some really rare pieces. Check my other auctions for some really great deals. 

PLEASE NOTE THAT PAYMENT IS DUE WITHIN 48 HOURS AFTER END OF AUCTION. EBay automatically files a claim if payment not received in that time frame.
