*Vintage STETSON, SHELL CORDOVAN, Full Brogue Oxford: US 8.5D (41.5D)
Full Wing-Tip Oxford Beogue
For those who prefer the rather more stream-lined look of an oxford over the more common derby lacing, these excellent shell cordovans, with their robust double soles, cleted heels and double-sided grommet-reinforced lacing, fit the bill perfectly. Made at the peak of American shoemaking in the mid-20th century by the great Stetson firm, these cordovans will continue to become more beautiful with the passage of time. It is said -and rightly so- that the only thing better than new cordovan is old cordovan. This pair certainly proves the point with it’s rich patina.
This is truly a vintage shoe as evidenced by the canvas lining of the front (shown in a close-up).
Size Details:8.5D (US), 7.5E(UK), Euro pean 41.5D, for the medium width foot.
Both soles and heels showing little wear. Tops excellet too, with a lovely patina that only time can achieve. Sold without trees.
