Wow, these are simply amazing. Don't listen to the others less than enthusiastic comments. They're not capable to understand the true creativity, freedom of expression and art behind the shoes of the past. The 30s were really an era where most "rules" were broken in men's shoe design. Back in those days there were so many variations of colors and patterns... It really was quite amazing. Between the mid 1920s to the early 1950s, men's shoes were very fetching in many varieties of warm, rich colors that would compliment the scores of beautiful suits of that time.

Here's a pair I simply love. Circa 1939 or '40.

All white buck uppers and red/brown leather wing tip and heel. Class all the way. ;) The white buck is softest I've ever touched. :)

You have nailed it there re the 30s. And when you think that in the midst of all this the Great Depression was going on. Yin and Yang.

The box is actually dark grey in color and it looks like it's the 2012 Crepin. Source: I have the dark brown suede with fur lining version of that pair.

Curious since SG said John Lobb bootmaker in Paris. Maybe it's an bespoke pair of JL RTW 2012 style.

2012, not bespoke. Good eye on the box, I was wondering why this one was brown and all others yellow.

My feeling is to get a few pair before doing anything bespoke.

Some new-to-me Gravati on top. Pulled out the shine box for the chukkas, so I figured I'd shine up some others while I was at it.

Just curious, how much did it cost you? Mine cost around 14500 HKD which was around 1.9K, even more expensive than my St. Crispin's.
