I remember watching Turtle's Progress, he was quite a formidable character in it - always immaculately turned out, too.

Passed away too early, IMHO, and was, according to Wiki, a man of many talents:

Gsvs5 recently reminded us of the need to keep moving on (the debate about J Simons v. al Bazar) and in that vein I was interested to read this blog on mod shoes (scroll down to second piece) by Warren Peace the 'Marmite of Mod'.  A modernist attitude but not standard-issue Mod:

I like the 1970 ones.  A great example of the cross-over period beginning.....

If you're looking for shoes that last, here are my Paraboots "Michael". They're 20 years old at least, never polished them (they're the nubuck version) or took them to a cobbler. Rugged shoes.

One of those programmes that stuck in my memory,mainly because of Razor Eddie,I am sure that I once read that he was considered for James Bond,I reckon that he would have been a good choice,more convincing than Roger Moore IMO.

Every one of those photos has something worth mentioning IMO,as you say the 1970 ones are starting to show the "change",what we called flyaway collars and an early tank top ?

Never looked at that Blog before,but now I've read the C&J article and seen the basket weave Officer Boots and i am glad I did.

I wouldn't buy them today,but a few years ago.......? I agree with him on the SOLE collection.

 

It also prompted me to pull out my neglected Paul Smith Chelsea Boots (also by C&J I believe?) circa 1997 IIIRC?

Hidden elastic,almond toe and great heel detail  IMO.

Gsvs5 I love the PS boots.  I have been looking for a low-ish pair of Chelsea boots for ages (like the ones I had in 1965) and without the pointy toe, which is all I seem to find now.

 

That heel detail with the little diamond shape is similar to a pair of lace-up ankle boots I have from Jeffery-West which are slightly younger than yours.  Perhaps it was a popular detail back then?

Had my Smooths re-soled and a 1/4 Metal Tips put on them as well-no problem.You must have been unlucky roytonboy.

Had a pair of Half Chelseas,similar to these,about `65ish.Very comfortable.

Can not recall hearing of that before Colin ,the difference of Half Chelsea's as opposed to Full.Though I suppose that the style's were so popular then,that there were many variations in shape,heel,height etc?Just guessing and thinking aloud as it was before my time?

There were others around at the time.The other Style would be,with the exposed gusset on the sides.What was common about these are they just covered the Ankle.You could get them in Suede as well.

I have just remembered what I was wearing to my eldest Sister`s wedding,in `63 I wore a variation that had had a "Diamond Shape Toe"half Chelsea with a small Cuban Heel.These came out after the "Winklepicker" Chelsea Boots..You could wear these with the slim legged Italian Style Suits(my Father had just bought me).Another name for them is "Half Ankle Chelsea Boot".
