Hand-Sewn Norwegian (Goiser) Welt, Cap-Toe Derby
This shoe was shown as part of a line of hand-made shoes specially ordered some years ago by Barney’s Men’s Store, New York. They are not to be confused with the perfectly good but not comparable Harris shoes sold there today. These are truly hand-made, the welt double-needle hand sewn Norwegian Welt. The leather too is of superior quality. Instead of brogueing, the details of the cap and wings are laced. The undecorated and rather elongated yet chiseled toe is balanced by a 6-eyelet vamp, all in all a handsome modern quotation of a classic derby. $1050 when first sold at Barney’s.
