Much better than the $850 Kanye rendition...
Thrift Fit and Brag
I bought several pairs of shoes at an estate sale a while back. A number of them fit me and I was trying to figure out whether to list them or keep them. I forgot about them and saw them again this weekend in a box in my garage.
All of these will need a little polishing and or cleaning.
This first pair is the only pair like these that I have ever seen. I don't think I can bring myself to sell them since they fit.
Vintage Florsheim Imperial SUEDE in my size (11.5 Narrow) with V Cleat and 5 nail sole. I have never seen Suede Longwing Gunboats
Thrift fit (I'm not wearing the right socks, but I just tried these on again and these were socks I had on today).
More thrift fits from the same sale:
I'm kind of a sucker for vintage Longwings. I thought the color of these was cool and they fit. But, I may decide to sell them because i have WAY too many shoes.
These are Towncraft (JCPenney). Back in the day when this style gunboat was popular, someone made these for JCPenney. I'm not sure who, but they are heavy and sturdy like Florsheims or Hanovers. Again my Size 11.5B
I'm also a sucker for Saddle Shoes again my size (11.5C)
The insole says Lloyd's (I think), but I can't find any other indication of the maker. I have never heard of Lloyds.
Speaking of Versace, did anyone else see Super-Bowl-Bound-Quarterback Cam Newton wearing his Versace Pants?
