    Raised Apron, Chukka Boot
    Euro 680

    This masterpiece in Shell Cordovan is clearly one-of-a-kind. Neither the raised apron at the front or the brogued heel cap at the back are to be seen in any other chukka boot, certainly not both these features in one boot. This flight of fancy on the part of the shoemaker or the client has resulted in the spectacular tour-de-forve in shoemaking that you see here. The leather seleceted for this masterpiece is a rich tone somewhere between aubergine and oxblood, a serious boot for the serious cordovan lover/collector.

    The double sole with 360 degree welt and additional 360 Storm Welt appears to be hand seww with as many as 8 fine stitches to the inch, quite a feat of dexterity, especially in so massive a double soled shoe. All in all, a very finely made boot and one not to be seen again soon, a boot for your lifetime.  The identity of the master shoemaker, unfortunately, must remain a mystery.

    Size Details:

    As a custom made item, no size is indicated but by my precise measurement with shoemakers' lasts, this appears to span the sizes 11.5 and 12US (EU 45-16D) (UK 10.5-11E)

    Shoe Condition:

    A protective, non-slip "Vibram sole has been added to the original leather sole and McAfee style dove-tailed combination heels has been added too. Neither have been worn since these additions; you are starting fresh. Tops are near new too, showing the modest creasing consistant with only a few wearings. Shoe trees are not included.
