    Euro 860

    This is an exceptional example of a pre-war shoe, even after the advent of the Goodyear machine, still with hand sewn welt, hand raised apron and with the characteristic pointed toe of the period, so flattering to the foot. This is a wearable museum piece, in brand new condition, in spite of its almost 100 year age, and a find for the advanced collector, passionate retro-dresser or, simply, any gentleman who dresses to the highest classic standard.

    Made by an unknown American jobber for Churchill Ltd, an erstwhile haberdasher showing  a small selection of very fine special order shoes, along side it much more comprehensive invenetory of men’s clothes. Churchill Ltd. is not to be confused with Church’s or other modern makers with the Churchill name.
