*Vintage STACY-ADAMS Patterned Patent Leather Spectators: 44.5D
3-Eyelet, Patent Leather Full Brogue Spectator
This unusual example of the Full Brogue Spectator by Stacy-Adam uses a tan vamp over a patterned body, all in Patent leather. While a later offering by this shoemaker, the model harkens to an earlier time; notice the tan colour continuing around the opening of the shoe, very characteristic of pre-war models. Stylistically a bold statement (some would say, “outrageous”), a wide departure from our drab everyday blacks and browns, almost theatrical in it liveliness and something to challenge the imagination. At these prices, why not have a little fun. With composition sole, these are almost waterproof so ideal for picnics in the country.
Size Details:US 11D.....UK 10E.....Continental 44.5D, for the medium width foot.
The tops are in perfect condition, bottoms showing the first rubbing but no wear, remarkable for a vintage shoe this age. Sold without trees.
