Yowzer. Those really are bad looking shoes.

I'm not a big fan usually of the austerity brogue style, but these are obviously high-quality shoes. The width of the square toe would also put me off them, but many seem to like that form. Not sure of the maker, but EL72 can tell us (Ferragamo? Sutor Mantellassi?). One big plus: A Canadian seller, and, therefore, dead honest.

These are really nice in my opinion, made on a great last, and could be at about the EG level. I'd be interested in some background on Poulsen Skone; RJman or Medwards, can you provide this? The listing indicates that New & Lingwood acquired PS and now sell PS shoes as one of their high-end lines. They don't appear, however, on the N&L website as part of their luxury shoe collection (many of which appear to be Grenson Masterpieces). If interested, it would be important to get to the bottom of the size information. They could actually be 10.5E US, but some actual measurements, along with a brief discussion with one of the two Sausages, should get most of what's needed.

I think i'm going to buy these, to be my first pair of brown shoes. Do they look like scotch grain leather to you ? I can't really tell.

Got these for 70. Whats your opinion on them? Thanks
Do you think they would be a good shoe to learn antiqueing on?

Regards, and thanks for your opinon.

Here are the same seller's (Sausages) other Poulsen Skone shoes:

The seller notes that the width seems narrow to him/her, so again checking re size is needed. Normally a UK F-fitting would not be narrow. With C&J, EG, and Lobb it would be wide, whereas with other makers (e.g., Alfred Sargent), it seems to be medium.

These look very elegant. Describing the brand as 'top elite' is a bit silly though

They look a bit odd to be honest, but if they appeal to you, go for it.

I think you did great! The wear on the sole suggests that they might have been worn once--and maybe only briefly at that. They're very nice shoes--basic captoe balmorals that should serve you well. Wrt antiquing them, they would actually be good candidates for that, in my opinion, in that adding darker patches would make them even more attractive, and, with only $70 invested, you wouldn't have to worry too much about losing your shirt if things go badly in the antiquing--which they probably wouldn't. I'd say go for it, but they're not my shoes!

I liked the lighter shoe color with the basic but classic shape, would not have to work too hard trying to remove old color but will allow me to just add polish to it for antiqueing. If it turns out bad, then Roger, it was YOUR idea.....
Thanks for your reply.
Regards.

Hi, I am the seller of these shoes. They are virtually new. One thing to mention would be that I believe they are made of Nappa Calf which is very soft. I honestly don't think they would antique well, although Tony may have a better answer for you. I think they are quite nice as they are.

These are quite nice -- 9.5 E Edward Green loafers:
