Costume National Practical Fall Black Boots sz 36.5

Hi all,

These are part of the stash of shoes I'd inadvertently found as I was packing for my move. I could just give them to Goodwill, but I feel someone out there could use them as they've got plenty of wear left in them -- and were expensive, high quality boots. They not delicate at all -- they'll hold up well in fall or winter weather.

A great thing about these boots is that they're not too narrow in the calf.

Measurements: at the widest point, they are 14". I usually wear a size 37, but these are fine on me -- I can wear thick socks or tights with these without a problem. Heel is 1 1/4". Total boot height: 14 3/4"

on the left boot at the top, there are a number of mysterious scratches. I don't think these would be a big deal for someone who plans to wear these as "bad weather" boots. They could use a good polish. Again, I think they have a lot of wear left!

Sorry, I forgot to list the listing end date -- it's August 10. I am supposed to move between the 11th and 15th so I have to get everything mailed out soon after the 10th!

The insole is 9 1/2". I'll add the info to my listing.
