[Sold] No6 5" leather buckle boot

Hi all, I am offering my No6 clog boots for sale. They are the '5" leather buckle boot' in black.

I bought these in late October 2009 and wore them a few times a week until it got too cold for them in early December (I live in cold, cold Toronto). They are in great condition: the soles show a little wear and there are the tiniest of scuffs on the toes (see the second and third pictures from the bottom for close-ups). Otherwise they are perfect: beautiful leather, handcrafted, very good quality, etc. I think most of us know all about No6 boots. With proper care they will last a very long time.

These are a size 39. No6 boots run a full size big, so these are really a size 38 (8). I normally wear a size 7.5 and wasn't sure they would fit - the website says half sizes should order 1.5 sizes up - so I discussed sizing with the nice people at No6 before ordering. This is what Audrey said:
"These boot run a full size small, so the 39 is a 8 and the 38 is a 7. The base of a clog does not bend or flex so when you are walking your heel needs to slip, if they are too tight you end up walking a little like frankenstein. I advise you get the 39 if you are a 7.5. A little on the big side is always better when it comes to these."

I followed her advice and she was absolutely right.

I am letting them go because I recently purchased a pair of Frye boots and like them better. I never quite got used to the wooden clog sole, and now that I have the Fryes I know these won't get worn much. Plus, I can't really justify having two pairs of black ankle boots in my wardrobe.

Price: $300, including shipping within North America. International buyers, please contact me for a shipping quote.

First come, first served. Please leave your paypal address in the comments, and feel free to email me with any questions.
