“Ventilated” Basket Weave “Fiddle Vamp”
Oxford Brogue Spectator
This charming Spectator by Allen Edmonds is a remarkably accurate -almost indistinguishable- throwback to the mid- and early 20th Century Woven Spectators much in vogue for well-dressed gentlemen from the 1920 onward. As a practical matter, production of this type came to an end in 1960, if not earlier and it is refreshing to have a good shoemaker like Allen Edmonds resurrect the model, both the woven instep and the elegant fiddle vamp, in modern times. Unfortunately this model by Allen Edmonds was never available for sale in Europe and had only a short duration in their American shops. It is now out of production. To find a pair in essentially new condition like this pair is most unusual and a “brown on brown” is truly a three season model, as appropriate for Spring and Fall as for Summer. Goodyear welted, of course.
