Shoe Damage Report & Shoe P0rn Central - Part II - Page 822

post #12316 of 19808
Circa 1950s spectator shoes by Stacy Adams, model Dayton. Slightly spade soles, full round pointy toes, beige-brown nylon mesh, very contoured last, white stitching, slim leather soles with carved waists, fat rubber heels. This pair has been the coolest summertime shoe I've ever tried and I still regret having sold them.

Didn't want to start a thread for this so will ask here. The sun is coming and I see many wearing chukka boots, i'm not so much for boots, but it looks really nice I must say!

 

So now i'm thinking over a pair that I can use when i'm casual with jeans or chinos. They will be in darkbrown suede (dont like other models)

 

So which brand should I aim for here?

I presume you will not be restricted to the funds made available through the sale of your Loakes?

 

Otherwise I think a pair of Clarks will be the most you can aspire to.

Of course not, sold them to move up with regards to quality. I actually got about $200 for them, but the price for them new in Norway is about $600 so the guy made a pretty good deal.

Improvement in quality will not be difficult given your starting point.

 

Norwegian shoe prices are outrageously high.

Unusual to see them with spades. Sad loss for summer. Yet I sold a pair of spades to someone who split them at the back and won't sell them back to me.

For some reason, I like ghillies as well. My issue is that i do NOT wear my pants like the model in the photo. My trousers are at a "normal" length, so the lacing is mostly covered. This is why I like toecap detailing.

Carmina on the Inca last.

I was very surprised when I first saw the Carmina pricing. They are most likely the best "bang for your buck" shoe out there right now. HOPEFULLY success won't lead them to greatly increase price.

Besides, they do some very nice things with shell.

I agree about not putting the high-shine on grain. However, considering how nice a job this gentleman does, I can 100% understand.

A quick note on the concept behind these. In years past, a true Dandy/ shoe aficionado wouldn't be caught dead wearing sandals. This was the alternative. A dress shoe style that gives one the same feel as wearing sandals. They are VERY lightweight and comfy to boot.

Nice find. The wingtip is much rarer than the u-tip. Nicer design, too (IMO)

Request that you take a Group Pic of your shell collection.

Question about a resole: Could a cobbler/b.nelson re-sole these bal boots with a flatter outsole? I love my Grenson Masterpiece boots but I dislike the curved toe
