These are lovely. They appear to be older, perhaps significantly so, than the couple of pairs of Crown Windsors I have personally. They are darker in person than pictured. Size is 12C/A. Soles stamped "Hand Lasted." Full leather lining, genuine leather insole, Comfort Arch. Although there is no label for the upper, I believe these to be calfskin (can anyone confirm?). Addendum: this blog, translated from the Japanese, has some interesting information about a pair with the same "Crown Windsor by Bostonian" insole label and "Hand Lasted" embossing. It dates its pair to the 80s, which is around what I would have guessed for these. http://babelfish.yahoo.com/translate...rUrl=Translate $120 shipped in United States.
