Cole-Haan benchmade English cap toe. Size 10.5 B. BIN of $69.99. Look to be in very good shape. I believe the consensus was that these were made by Cheaney, but apparently others made for C-H over the years, including C&J and Grenson. Either way, a prettty good deal on a staple shoe.
Are you asking seriously, or are you trying to make a point that it's a vintage item?
SFers, for whatever reason, will pay large sums of money for used, beat up stuff, with the idea that either "hey it already has a patina" or "hey, with just a little TLC it will become a quality item again" or other absurd reasons. Look at how many people will buy used shoes, and not like once or twice used, like solidly creased, with the soles shaped to someone else's foot.
this. i want it because a) it is old and built like a tank b) I cant get it anywhere else c) its cool d) I like to blow cash
You KNOW I'm a Vintage Guy! Having worked with Vintage shoes (and other items) in all levels of dis-repair, I have seen that there is a clear "point of no return" for such items. For leather shoes it is 1) tears & cracks & 2) excessive dryness/ cracking.
For lighters (which I used to collect a bit) it's the ability to work the materials. I'm sure that one could be made to function just fine. The casing, however, requires artisan-level metalwork to repair properly. For the most part, the factory the lighter comes from isn't equipped to refurbish/ repair an "artisan-worked" casing. I learned this thru ST Dupont & their Chinese Laqueur lighters. They are unable to repair cracks or fill missing chunks. The case on that lighter was, at one time, quite beautiful. Now, it would take a real expert to "bring it back" properly.
HOWEVER, I cannot argue that it doesn't have a lot of character & is still a piece of art. If you like it, go for it.
