on which alden last are you an 8D? the lhs are on the van last; therefore, my rule of thumb is that both the van last and the barrie last go for the same size. in your case the 7.5D was to big, i would try on the 7 D

The last I have tried are aberdeen, plaza and hampton, all 8D, I size down to 7.5D for the barrie (perfect fit), the lhs in 7.5 were big specially in the heel area, they did not have a 7 to try, I will when I get the chance, thanks!

Great spades and NOS to boot. Congrats! I think the heel angle is deliberate and something to do with the footfall but DFWII etc would know better.

not a crack on the insole. A crack in the heel pad which was placed over the insole. Like many vintage shoes, the insole pad covered only the heel portion. The maker often put their company stamp on this pad. Also like many vintage shoes, the pad has dried out. Proper conditioning will most likely re-moisturize the shoe leather (inside and out- though this process may take months depending on the level of dryness), though that pad is likely finished.

In any case the spade sole is great.

agreed about the spade sole. Something about the spade which adds a bit of masculinity to an elegantly designed shoe (which can be a bit feminine, IMO)

Shoe damage as this thread calls, what actually is the meaning, real damage on the shoes? Or like ''it costs, damage'' ?

Ye? Damage cost, but what cost really? Many of the shoes people post here dont really cost that much $100-$200?

 

Some old and dusty shoes.

Dear Sir,

this is, after all, a shoe porn thread and damage thread. Any douche with enough cash can buy a rack full of Edward Greens and John Lobbs or bespoke shoes. For collectors, NOS pairs, samples and vintage shoes are more inspiring -- like livings examples from the past, things you cannot buy or have made in the same way anymore.
