    As promised in my recent Newsletter, here, along with several other new listing, is an excellent shoe for almost any weather, on or off road, as practical for your summer outings in town or country as for Winter use. Every prudent gentleman’s wardrobe should have at least one such shoe to choose in heavy weather or, indeed, for any excursion to the country, whatever the weather. My goal is to present you shoes that fit this description but which have no resemblance to rough shoes or boots, rather, which can also be worn to the office or out in the evening without giving the impression -apologies to my lumberjack clients- that you are have just returned from felling trees in the Black Forest.
    This particular pair appears identical to those made for the War Office under contract but was sold commercially by Tecnic at the time. Few veldtschoen constructed shoes are made today and certainly nothing as robust as the present pair with it channelled triple sole and hand-set horse-shoe nailed heel.
    VELDTSCHOEN CONSTRUCTION: In terms of construction, the present shoe is one of the most complex, robust and durable of all shoes. The Veldtschoen construction, while similar to the Norwegian construction in that both have the uppers turned out and sewn to the out-sole, has the addition of a full welt between the uppers and the out-sole, all of this intended to repel water. The Norwegian lacks a welt and is sewn directly to the outsole. Veldtschoen constructed shoes are usually further distinguished, as in this case, by a bellows tongue, another waterproofing measure.The construction of this shoe allows for the easy replacement of the sole but replacement is academic; you cannot wear out this sole. This shoe will serve you faithfully like few others and for decades to come. My old clients know what I mean when I say, “My highest personal recommendation on this shoe.”
    Condition: Near new; perhaps worn once or twice. Original carton and flannel travel bags. Sold without trees.
    Size/Grösse: UK8G…….US 9E…….Continental 42D, for the medium width to somewhat wider foot.
