    Thanks for all the interest and PM's guys- everything is either a 7 or 7.5. They all fit a US8 or 8.5. With the exception of the cordovan chukka with the buckle- it runs small for some reason, best for a US7.5. I'll be posting in classifieds in the next few days.

    Those unlined bucks are hot!!!

    They actually look brand new, no wear on the soles. Why's he selling em? If you don't mind me asking? If its personal, just ignore.

    Uncle,

    Do your Horse Bits jingle when you walk? My Gucci Horse Bits do and everyone at the office always know it's me rounding the corner because of it. One guy calls my LHS the sneaky shoes for that reason. They say I sound like a cowboy wearing spurs.

    Agree. Saw these at the beginning of June and thought they were very nice. Commando sole if I recall correctly. A gentleman bought a pair while I was there, in fact.

    I believe the red sole is known as microcellular rubber. I had some chukkas in with the black variety of the sole.

    Alden SF and Shoemart have them now (I'm betting between the 2 stores they have a full size run).

    I highly recommend them. I have the chukka in all exotic shell colors - the ravello being my most recent acquisition in the shell chukka family - and I really like them all. :nodding:
