EG Windsors on eBay

I rarely see Windsors on sale anywhere these days, so I thought it was worth posting a link to a pair that is currently on sale on eBay. The odd 12B size is probably keeping people from bidding. In my experience, you would probably need to be more like a US size 11 to make these work (and you'll still need to be on the narrow side).

Of course, you'll be getting a pair of shoes of unique shoes - as mentioned here ad neasuem, the Windsor is essentially a defunct model. The u-tip is still offered, but its a plain model without the intricate broguing that you see here. These shoes rarely come with the box, so that's an added bonus. It's also interesting to see the original Nordstrom price tags, which seem to indicate that Edward Green shoes were selling somewhere in the $300 range back in the mid to late 1980s.

Good luck bidding - you can find a link to the thread here.

Drake's Sample Sale - Feb. 5-8, 2015

For what I understand, this sale will be very similar to the pop-up sales that have taken place at CHCM over the last few years. It certainly sounds promising!
