**Remember, Pivetta was that rare company that when sizing width, it was only in the heel that they changed width.  The ball of the foot remained the same no matter whether N(arrow), M(edium), or W(ide).

These are glove-leather lined up to the ball of the foot, which I believe is called half-lined.  No cuts or scuffs.  Honestly, I don't believe they're even fully broken in.  No distinguished creasing yet, and the soles are barely worn in depth (though, the soles do show some cuts and scraping).  No Goretex.  One-piece leather upper with a single seam in the heel.  The photos speak for themselves.

I wear a 10.5-11 in most shoes and boots.  These feel closer to a big 10 or smaller 10.5.  If you normally wear a 10, I think that would be ideal.  I'm selling these because they're just slightly too small in both length and ball width for me.

Because of the Littlway Welt, these can easily pass as casual work shoes.  Throw some thin brown laces on them, and they don't look like hiking boots.  I wore them in casual work settings, and I don't feel they stood out as clunky.

THEY DO NOT COME WITH LACES.  You need to supply the laces.  Always treated with Obenauf's Heavy Duty LP.

A beautiful boot from a forgotten time.  I'd have to think a boot of this quality would be $300-400 today.
