    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 BrocktonMassachusetts 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. Our interest here is in FootJoy’s fine, hand-made, classic street shoes made a generation ago for their gentleman clients. These vintage and antique FootJoys represent the pinnacle of craftsmanship and luxury, and are highly prized by collectors and aficionado of fine shoes. This brown Lizard Tassel Loafer is among the finest and the rarest Loafers to be seen outside of a museum….and certainly among the most beautiful. The skins are artfully arranged, with fine and coarse patterned pieces distributed for maximum effect, and all perfectly matched between shoes and the „apron“ is painstakingly hand raised.. Every such shoe, even from the same maker, varies a little because of the small differences between the skins used. In any case, in this burgundy-oxblood coloured pair, the skins are especially lovely, perfectly matched and beautifully laid out. In their day, the client could select leather, colour and be fitted for size. Of course, stock or special order, that day is over now, now that the Brockton, Mass. plant is closed forever. And this specie, the Teju Lizard, although it proliferates in the Southwest, is on the protected (though not quite endangered) list, making the paper-work involved with using it forbidding for other shoemakers. Another example of the closing of an era of great American shoemaking.
