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...
