Tod's are comfy shoes... and in your favorite leather as well!

A recent purchase by my "Vintage Shoes Mentor". The moral of the story is that it can be very cool to serve as a proxy buyer for a gentleman with great taste.

Paolo Scafora for Gianfranco Ferre. I'm digging the burgundy finish + the 5 deep stitching on the uppers..

The sole shape is unmistakingly 1940's, a bonus in my opinion.

I had a pair of those. I got rid of them, however. Seven eyelets is just too many.

Well, I don't typically unlace my shoes to get them off. I just untie them. However, they look funny, unbalanced, and too busy. Something about a plain cap toe with that many eyelets looks off. I tried them.

I suspect that's the reasons they could be found at a steep discount.

Regardless of personal preferences, the "acceptable" number of eyelets has a tendency to change from decade to decade. From the 7 of the 1930's to the 3 (and sometimes 2) of the 1970's. Don't see how an extra eyelet can make a pair of shoes go from "fantastic" to "funny", but I don't argue with preferences.

I like a lot of eyelets. Gives a simple shoe attitude. Attitude you can't put your finger on at first glance.
