6-Eyelet Cap-Toe Oxford Brogue
The handwork in this shoe is a testament to the skill of this once great American shoemaker and a compelling example of traditional shoemaking at its very finest. Notice the 360 degree split reverse welt (storm welt) not often seen in this vintage. Moreover the welt is sewn into a channel and skived over. Overall this degree of hand work is rarely if ever seen today. The leather is of the highest quality kidskin and in astoundingly soft condition -like new. Evidently this shoe was stored and maintained under ideal conditions. The square toe, the contrasting sewing of the welt and the high, 6-eyelet vamp, combine to make not only a most individual presentation but one that cannot be confused with anything modern. The overall appearance of this shoe is redolent of another day and age. This is a true “find” for the collector or vintage dresser. Let me add that I have never seen the like of this shoe, even among the many pre-war classics I have handled.
Size Details:41-41.5D.....US 8-8.5D.....UK 7-7.5E, for the medium width foot.
Near new. Although at least 80 years old, these shoes show no effects of age and very little wear but for the original rubber heel which, although little worn, shows the effects of time. In the interest of originality, I have not replaced them but am including a pair of the highest quality, new, vintage/period countersunk, "GoodYear Wing Foot" heels to replace the originals, when the time comes.
