Anyway, sorry if that came across badly, and no offence intended to anyone.  Feel free to ask why guys of average height and above average waistlines, like good shoes.  I won't take it personally. wink.gif

I think the real issue is that people wear shoes that are too big.

Quite so.

Glass half full, glass half empty, or just the wrong sized glass?  It's an interesting angle, Mr Booth. :)

That norvegese adds just the right amount of excitement to those, IMO.

The Holy Grail of US Vintage Shoes (really)...

1940's NOS Edwin Clapp Flying Wing Spade Soled Oxford Wingtips.

100% Handmade elegance.

(I can't believe they are a HUGE size 13d! What a rare size for Vintage US Shoes, where most are too small for the modern foot to wear)

Many Thanks

Those Clapps INFURIATED me with the fact they are waaaaay to big for my feet. Took consolation in these (which, ironically, come from a very good friend who was told they are a 10 1/2D but they ended up being a full 2 sizes smaller)...

1940's NOS Oxford Caps

The Natural Patina on the upper broguing and stitching comes from the color of the brown stitching slowly bleeding (ever so slightly) into the upper leather. 100% natural.

Absolutely incredible.  Let me know if you ever find a 10-10.5!  Sad to say the cap toes don't quite live up to these, but they are special: something about these vintage shoes always impresses me - the welt stitching/fudging on your cap toes has such a skilled, hand-made feel about it.  Love it.

+1; makes them more manly somehow.

Perhaps its just the angle but that looks like an EG HAF sole. Great find, Issh.
