I don't. I could probably winkle it out on Bing but then only you and I would know. So...please, tell me.

It might have been an entry for one of the numerous shoemaking competitions, which were very popular in England until the 1930s. The shoes are unworn and the entry might have been just a single shoe (traditionally the left one).

Is this Maftei pair made on a banana last?

Maftei in general use slightly banana shaped last, but I don't thing that that one is the best example, is actually pretty symmetrical for a Maftei last.

 

My pair from them used a banana shaped last, since I have pretty banana shaped feet it works good for me. I've previously got that question in the forum on my blog, and did make this picture to accentuate the banana shape and make it more visible:

What a revelation...I have banana feet, wide on the forefoot, and you may have just saved and ruined my life.

I cannot believe I've missed this! Scheer has finally joined Facebook and shared hundreds of photos of their odd-looking pairs. Those vertical heelcups look mighty strange to my eyes, but I'll let you have a look:
