They were okay, but they still needed work. I wish I knew who made them. It takes me about a week to get shoes ready for pictures. Everything I buy is re-shaped in a lasted tree, polished with cream and/or wax and sometimes a clear coat, and then the secret step--drying them in a cedar chest before a final polishing. I think the art in that's a carry-over from one of my other hobbies: oil painting. If I could just thrift old shoes, I'd be happy.
