*Neuwertig – ALLEN EDMONDS “Strawfut” Ventilated-Mesh Oxford Spectator: 42D
“Ventilated” Mesh “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 Mesh 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 mesh 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 “Black on Black” pair all the more so. A wonderful and eminently practical shoe for your Spring, Summer and Fall wardrobe. Goodyear welted, of course.
Size Details:US 9D......UK 8E.....Continental 42D, for the medium width foot.
