Dack's shoes question - Page 14

Hello, I picked a pair of 1984 Baffin seal skin 9Ds in as new condition . A very odd convoluted or ribbed finish to the leather and in a natural tan. I've got them on etsy under VeloceFineFashion.

My guess is that they are quite valuable.

What size is 411 7862 8 second line is 791296 79. They are a pair of camel golf shoes. I have read the 7 pages of this thread and gone to the website for Dacks but I am not sure whether they are size 11 d or as I am hoping 10 med.

They are 9d and Etsy yanked them because of the "Bridgette Bardot" factor of banning Canadian seal products, for sale in USA,Russia, the EU, Taiwan and Mexico. They are now privately for sale.

I was so excited to find this post!  I have 5 pairs for Dack's and Church's, hoping someone will be able to tell me about these.

first 3 are Dack's.  They have hand written inside.  The shoe with the metal embellishment imported lizard Canada, black ones says Madison, I can't seem to find what type of skin the brown one is.

Thank you so much for any help!!

THE TOP TWO IN LIGHT BROWN ARE MADE FROM WHAT WAS CALLED ' FIGHTING SEAL SKIN ' WHICH WAS A VERY POPULAR STYLE WHEN THESE WERE ORIGINALLY ISSUED AND SOLD WELL FOR MANY YEARS ...

 

THESE WERE AVAILABLE IN SHADES OF LIGHT TO MEDIUM BROWN AS WELL AS BLACK ...

 

VERY TOUGH WEARING AS THE HIDE IS SO PLIABLE ... 

 

HAVE HAD MINE FOR MORE THAN 50 YEARS AND THEY STILL LOOK GREAT ...

 

ALL OF YOUR VERY GOOD PHOTOS APPEAR TO SHOW THESE VARIOUS SHOES IN RATHER GOOD SHAPE CONSIDERING ALL OF THEM HAVE SOME AGE AND WEAR SHOWING.

I posted a new thread about Dacks shoes when I probably should have responded here.... I am looking for information about the 2 pairs of Dacks shoes pictured in this post. They were my father's. The loafers are Camel skin, hardly worn at all and in perfect mint condition. I guess they are from 1984 based on the centennial stamp inside. Believe they should be about a size 8 and that the series of numbers on the side may indicate that. The other pair I assume are older than 1984 and show a lot more wear. Most of the numbers inside are worn away and cannot really make them out. I see no indication inside the shoe as to what type of leather these might be. They have a similar "pebbly" texture to the camel skin so I wonder if they too might be some "exotic" leather? Would also like to know what these shoes may have retailed for when new - my father would have bought them new. And is it possible the camel skin loafers might actually be worth anything today?? Think I will be cleaning up the oxfords to wear myself - they are still a comfortable shoe and look very retro!!!! THANKS for any information.

I just bought a pair of Dack's longwings on eBay.  They are marked Bond Street, Made in England.  $44.95 USD and they are brand new, never worn and they came in a Dack's box.  I think I stole them.  Based on the leather grain, are these cow or something else?

Those are buffalo. You stole them. I've been looking for a pair for 5 years, and they're worth considerably more than you paid.

I have a pair of black wing tips, made by Cheaney, and they appear to be water bison. They've got biltmore soles. I've always assumed that they were Dacks, but I can't find any markings to confirm that.

Hi - I have a pair of Hartt shoes I'd like more info on. They don't appear to have ever been worn. In reading some of the comments on this thread, I think these were made in the 80's. Inside the shoe it says "Gold Bond by Hartt" and lettering on side says 7 1/2 E  7712   2.  Under that it says 6806  75   84. The heel on the bottom of the shoe says "BILTRITE" and on the bottom of the sole, "Handcrafted in Canada". What I'd like to know is when and where these shoes were made and what are they made out of? What, exactly, would these shoes be called? Wing tip brogues? They've been sitting in the original box for over 10 years in my closet. Inherited. Thanks for any help. I'll attempt to post some pics.

Circa. 1984 Hartt calfksin wingtip brogues. They're decent shoes, but not the best quality.
