Golfers the world round know that the finest traditional golf shoes are made and have been made throughout the 20th century by one shoemaker, The FootJoy Company. FootJoy began its operation as the Burt & Packard Shoe Company founded in Brockton Massachusetts in 1857. In 1927 the company took the name of its premier line of shoes, the FootJoy. Since then they have been the leading golf shoe on the PGA tour, the # 1 selling golf shoe in England and the undisputed leader in the manufacture of Golf Shoes in the world. The vintage and antique FootJoys, particularly their alligator, lizard and other exotic leather shoes, for golf or street, represent the pinnacle of craftsmanship and luxury, and are highly prized by collectors and aficionado of fine shoes.
This present shoe, a Spade Sole street shoe from the 1930 is more rare even that the exotic leather shoes of the firm and a pair in this new condition is simply not to be found anywhere today. The quality of materials and workmanship are superior to any ready-made shoe today -and I include in that remark Edward Green, John Lobb, L. Vass, at about the same price- and most custom-made shoes at two and three times the price. In short, there is no finer shoe to be gotten at any price. This shoe is built over a steel shank, with oak tanned sole and McAffee dovetail heel.
