    yes, ordering the same shoe that is brand new and first quality is 30% less than the current bid. buyer beware!

    those look like Brown CXL to me. I really like the lighting effect on that photo - really makes the color pop.

    I get my large nice brushes from my local shoe repair and specialty shoe shop. They are $9 and nice horse hair brushes. Look around im sure there are some shops near you.

    I've heard that if you rub wheatgrass on CXL, and brush with a horse hair brush for 17 1/2 minutes it shines brighter than Cordovan!!!?!??!

    Or is that barrier lasted shoes? :confused:

    I wear a 10 E on the barrie last. If I bought the BB PTB, could I go to an 11 D, or would that be too large?? Thanks...

    Don't rely on what people tell you - buy it and return if it doesn't fit. BB has a good return policy.

    Speaking from experience, Bb ptb fits slightly narrower, not a full size larger. I'll try to order 10.5 D

    Perhaps you could ask mediahound and furo for advice with the M58 last.
