    While not made to order, the handwork in this shoe, up to and including the hand-sewn, channeled and skived sole, is a testament to the skill of this artisan and a compelling example of bespoke shoemaking at its very finest. A bench-made shoe, with oak-tanned double spade sole, and the sort of astonishingly durable contemporary Phillips hard rubber heel that has not been made for half a century, the overall effect of this masterpiece is one of extraordinary beauty without the slightest degree of ostentation. Notice the astonishingly lovely extra wide welt of the spade sole; wonderful! The 1000 Euro ready-mades of Lobb and Green and Weston do not compare to this shoe. Although from the 1920s, this harkens to 19th century hand craftsmanship, pre-Goodyear Welting. The overall appearance of this shoe is one of ultimate elegance. This is the last word for the collector or well dressed gentleman who’s has the good fortune to be this size.


    Size Details:

    US 8D......UK 7E.......Continental 41D, for the medium width foot.

    Shoe Condition:

    Like new! Although almost 100 years old, these shoes show no effects of age and only the first scuffing of the sole.
