Basket Weave 6-Eyelet Oxford Spectator – Correspondent Shoe
While the Correspondent Shoe is well represented in England, this original pre-war antique is the only example of a basket weave Spectator that I have seen coming from an English shoemaker. One can almost believe that it is an import from America, rebranded by New & Lingwood for the English trade. Whatever its provenance, it is an exceptional beautiful object, perhaps one-of-a-kind and a prize for any collection. The Modified Spade Sole has a skived/channeled welt (as with bespoke shoes).
