Might put these up as well...Roblee mild spade ventilated spectators c 1940s NOS size 10.5D.
I think they are bespoke from the lack of interior details and quality of the leather.
Just finished rehabbing a pair of 1930s spectators from Marshalls and gave them the test run at a Shanghai Nights party. Probably first time they had been off a dance floor in what 50 years? Classic sign of 1930s shoes is narrow width around the lacing area. So a D width looks like a C. Interesting saddle leather treatment = like Russian calf Someone used them as a wall feature = hence the (repaired) holes in the soles! Notice the unworn 1930s heel...
Those 1940s style tarsal strap/ball strap shoes won't have the beautiful, voluptuous Bestetti toecap like yours coming at you!
I am usually a 10K in UK shoes... sometimes 9.5... but some information on eBay re sausages seems to suggest that a 9.5F might be adequate as it is an Italianish snouty last.But I do not really know whether to do it in two colors. Or do it all in a single color.What do you think is better? Two colors like these? Or one color only?[/quote]Anything in Bestetti gets my juices flowing. You can't go wrong with him.
All of the above.
One size too big!
Love Tarsal straps. What do they cost in BUD?
