...since we got the pearl ball rolling, here's a photo I saved from the Internet: The seller listed these as 1910s Florsheims. I trust hand-welting so close to the outer rim is an additional challenge? These pearls look beautiful still.
Thank you, all. dddrees, I don't envy your conundrum! Choosing between EG's or G&G's model is a tough one as each is great. If I recall well, and don't quote me on this, EG does have a slight edge as their counters are leather instead of leatherboard.
Winot, it's a very clean case...but how's the smell? Do you find yourself taking casual sniffs at the office every now and then, away from prying eyes?
MoosicPa, you know you're one lucky style addict, right? I have a thumb-sized patch of this hallowed leather and the smell is a wonderful experience to get in this life.

Thank you, all. agedashidofu, those waists are just about as close as wearable. Mad skills at the G&G factory. I wonder how long it takes to sculpt and finish leather to such extent. rydenfan, what specs do you need? My message and shoe box photo show all. Ridgeway is the best smart sole unit I've tried. Dainite is slippery in winter and also hard, Commando packs snow and stones, crepe has a tendency to crack. Vibram's Eton is also wonderful but I can't yet say how it...
