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.

    Classic Gucci loafers from the 70s or early 80s.
    Made in Italy
    Chocolate brown
    Brass hardware
    size 11d or EU 44

    Excellent condition.

    length: 11 3/8"
    width: 4" (exactly)

    These feature the great details of older Gucci loafers, including high, stacked leather heels with four nails; three nails near the toe, and the old cloth label sewn inside the shoes.

    Here is a description by A Continuous Lean on how these classic moccasin-style loafers are made:

    The leather uppers are incredible; they appear new and will readily mold to the feet of the first person to start wearing them. These sat in somebody's closet for 30-40 years. The only evidence of wear to the leather is some very slight wrinkling at the bend just behind the toes.

    These are fully leather lined. The interior of the shoes shows little or no evidence of wear. The footbed shows no impression or indentation and the full leather lining is very clean. There is a small handwritten "10 1.2" on the inside of one shoe.

    The outsoles suggest they have been worn maybe three to five times, maximum. There is a very small ballpoint pen scribble on the bottom outsole of one shoe.



    I'm glad to answer any questions, entertain offers, or provide more photos if you provide an email address (there is a 12 photo limit in the classified). Thanks for looking.
