Long Wing Full Brogue Derby, “Budapester”
A limited edition and, sadly, no longer available, the “Independence Collection” Williams model was the luxury version of the McNeil, made with the same French tannery leather sourced by John Lobb, a thicker but softer leather than employed by Allen Edmonds in their standard offerings. The leather is very durable, scuffs less easily and is known to be supremely comfortable, not least because of the rarely found lambskin lining. These shoes will polish to a lovely satin finish. With double sole, channel-sewn Goodyear welt and combination non-slip heel, this is Allen edmonds’ finest product, their “masterpiece” level shoe.
For any collector of Allen Edmonds shoes (or, indeed, any gentleman who fits this shoe) an absolute must, not to mention, at this price, a remarkable bargain.
Postage: Innerhalb Deutschlands Euro 6,90; France Euro 14,20; Japan and the Far East Euro 35,10…US$18, Priority Air.
Size Details:Built on AE's 222 last, the model runs slightly narrow, thus more equivalet to a US 10.5C (44C) than a D. Also perfectly suited to a US 10D (43.5D).
New and unworn, in original carton and Allen Edmonds Flannel Travel Bags. Sold without trees but Allen Edmonds trees to fit are available at extra cost.
