I have a pair of KH saddles I bought NOS on ebay. They're decent, but I think these look to be of better quality than the ones I picked up.
That's the problem with buying vintage shoes. Many companies existed for decades, and the quality often changed with the times. Hard to know exactly what you're getting. Plus, some of the companies weren't that great to begin with. The golden years of U.S. made shoes were certainly better than what we have now, but not every firm was an AE or Alden. Lots of bad leather, etc. even then.
That said, I snagged the burgundy 9D. If it doesn't work out, you may spot it soon in the B&S forum, Alan.
