Most interesting shoe posted in this thread in at least 50 pages - thanks! They have to be at least 25-30 yrs old and in pristine condition. Check out the box. My size too.

RLTRUNK still works for 20%

You're right. I even commented on them, my memory is going fast! Sorry about the repeat.

Polo, Made in England, marked as 9.5 but measures out as a generous 10D. Might be able to pick this up cheap due to low general interest in summer shoe styles. White or light grey/beige brushed suede. Anyone have any idea who might have made these?

The seller does not take Paypal, only personal checks and only from the US. I am always weary of eBay sellers that don't take Paypal.

Could be Greens on the 88 last. They're a little dirty, but the soles look to be in fine condition--no threads peeking through the chanelled sole. I'll bet they'd clean up quite nicely.

Another pair, 9.5B

The McAfee shoes arrived today (if you can believe it; I bought them wednesday afternoon). They appear to be absolutely NOS, yellowed tissue paper still stuck in the toes. Embossed in gold Alan McAfee Ltd. London W.1 with the polo player on the liner. Under the tongue they are stamped 87C B16 Size 9 1/2 in white letters. Sizing is American. Made In England is stamped into the sole; also embossed on the sole in gold script is Hand-Lasted Hand-Finished. The brogueing is quite dusty and the shoes, though in perfect condition, are just sucking up the Propert's conditioner. What the ebay photo didn't really show well was the gently squared off and chiselled toe. The soles are cut very close in a way I've previously seen only on Lattanzi. Oddly, the nails in the heel appear to be square. Unfortunately, I returned the borrowed camera, so it may be a few days before I get a picture.
The McAfee rtw shoes are really murky. Most often what turns up are basically rebranded Church's. Somebody explained this once, noting that in markets where Church's were sold the Church's shoes were sometimes rebranded with the Alan McAfee name for private retailers. Thus, for example, here in San Francisco where Church's were sold widely, Bullock & Jones, I. Magnin, and Saks Fifth Avenue all carried shoes marked Alan Mcafee followed by the name of the retailer. These shoes, however, don't fall into that category. Stylistically, they are quite in line with the bespoke McAfees--esp. in the waist and the shape of the toe. If I had to guess, I'd say these shoes probably go back to the early 1970s. Just a hunch.
Anyway, I'm very happy with the shoes. I've always liked the full brogue monk. It's a style you don't often see on rtw shoes--unless I'm mistaken, neither Lobb nor Green do a rtw version of such a shoe.

The seller isn't exactly giving these away, but the price seems good for what must be high-end SMs that would retail in the $800-$1000 range. Channeled soles with brass slugging, "hidden" stitching, very nice-looking leather, just damn nice shoes--wish they were my size!

BTW, given the dimensions the seller provides, I'd guess these to correspond more to a US Size 10, rather than 10.5.

Hello All,

What do you think about these shoes? Santoni Shell Cordovan? Are these a true shell cordovan or a cordovan color? How does one tell? I ask because I am thinking about bidding, since I don't own any cordovan shoes.

Santoni Shell Cordovan
Size 8D- But based on measurements seems closer to a 9?
