I am probably in the minority,but I really like wingtips. I recently purchased a great pair of Florsheim Imperials(New Old Stock) on eBay at a fantastic reduced price. Made back when Florsheim still made quality dress shoes.Heck,I even own a pair of Spectators,and have been waiting for Memorial Day to pass so I could properly strut them out. Some may dismiss them as "old men's shoes",the kind your Grandpa wore;heavy,with thick soles,but I disagree. I remember having to polish my Dad's wingtips,as a way of earning my allowance,as a kid. It was boring work,but even then I appreciated the craftsmanship that went into the patterns on the toe cap,and how professional my Dad looked when he wore them. In my 20s I bought a couple of pairs(Black & Cordovan)of thick-soled wingtips at a thrift store.They probably looked odd on a younger man,but I loved how they felt;their weight and styling hearkened back to a time when dressing well was expected. More modern versions of the wingtip,with a thinner sole and narrower vamp,are getting hard to find. Nordstrom used to stock a nice Italian made wingtip under their own label,but they've been discontinued. Plal.com,a website recommended by another member in our forum,sells beautiful handcrafted English shoes,including wingtips,monkstraps,& cap toe oxfords,all from high polish,glove soft calfskin. Stunning work.
