Shoe Damage Report & Porn Central - Part I - Page 883  

post #13231 of 14248
Couple of shoes I bought last Summer because I thought they looked interesting for leather weave shoes. I have also never seen a waist on an outsole like the one on the Testoni:

The French might be calling it "Connaisseur", even the Germans do, but then in German it is rather pretentious to use it,
as German has that perfect word "Kenner".

Even in art history (where connoisseurship is a legitimate method of investigation), Max J. Friedländer's seminal work
"On Art and Connoisseurship" (1942) was published in Germany under the title "Von Kunst und Kennerschaft" (1946).
nfr. connaitre and nd. kennen are derived from the same word stemma, so using either is equally pretentious.

BTW, bengal-stripe here manages again to show us, that he is, really, a striped Bengel.

I'm learning more than I ever thought I could.

I know the English spelling of connoisseur but as a native French speaker, I cannot get myself to use the word with that spelling, just like I will never say "déjà vooo" or "woilà".

Here are some vintage 50s-70s that I've picked up. (Pics by request of some of the users. Roblee Plain Blucher AE Heather Shell Blucher - catalog suggests it was discontinued in the early 60s. Florsheim Black Pebblegrained Monkstrap Freeman Double Monkstrap/Slipon Freeman Plaintoe SlipOn. Blackberry camera, sorry for the lack of picture quality. I think the most I paid was $36 for the Florsheim (but I don't remember what I paid for the AE Blucher.)
