As a police officer standing out in bad weather directing traffic and whatnot, my father swore by the tingleys to wear over his shoes.

I bought a pair several months ago and can't recommend them. I purchased the size suggested for Size 9.5 shoes--Medium. However, they are just extremely hard to get on and off. They are somewhat insubstantial, being made of a very lightweight rubber, with no lining on the inside. As a result, you are trying to slide your shoes past a rubber surface that has the just-slightly tacky feel of something resembling inner-tube rubber. This causes the shoes to stick and get hung up when putting the overshoes on. Things would perhaps have been easier if I'd bought the Large size (recommended for shoes Size 10 - 11.5). Fortunately, I have a pair of older and more substantial rubbers for wearing over shoes, and these have (a) the zipper running up the vamp (which makes getting in and out easy) and (b) a cloth lining on the inside that allows the shoes to slip in and out without getting hung up on the rubber.

I saw these when they were posted and have been mulling it over. Just pulled the trigger. They're definately from the higher end SM line - notice the nail clusters on the heel. They seller wouldn't cancel the auction and come down in price a little bit since he had one of his regular customers interested but procrastinating (one of you guys?). So the seller seems like a good guy. That was enough to tip the scales towards me buying them actually. Based on the script thats on the bottom of the sole I think these are from the Italian line which fit a little small which will be good for loafers. I'd need to check against the other SM shoes in my closet to be sure about that though.

Paul Smith black derbys

Paul Smith boots (appears to be size 7.5-8)
http://cgi.ebay.com/Paul-Smith-Boots...QQcmdZViewItem

I think the above boots are mislabeled, but those who are more familiar with PS european sizing may want to check them out. I was under the impression that size 40 euro corresponds to 7.5-8 US, rather than 7. In any case, these are an absolute steal if they go near the starting price.

I think the derby's are the made in India line.

I'm not sure where they're made, but I am thinking those are more like a US 10 than a US 9.5, though.

Agreed. These are top-of-the-line Mantellassis, and from a fine seller. Just a steal at $225. Oops, just noticed, auction is over with the shoes unsold. Someone should get right in touch with the seller and make him an offer close to the $225 before he relists.

Brooks English patent lace-ups, 7D

used, but might be a good buy for someone needing decent formal shoes without much investment


Brooks alligator bit loafers, 8.5, BIN $450
post #2773 of 14986
The first picture is of the Made in England Darlton/Marlowe wingtip, but then the seller shows in actual pics that the shoes have scalloped lacing flaps (quarters?) and are meant to be covered with a big tassle patch (golf shoes?)

The combination heel is not dovetailed like the C and J darltons, so I wonder if these are even made in England. Strange!
