New AE Broadstreet wingtip specs in burgundy + black shell cordovan 10.5EE - very cool!

Or in red/white/blue for the patriotic among you:

These multi-colored suede are also cool in a weird way (but I don't think they're shell despite the sole markings):

They are very much so made to Masterpiece standards and are old Paul Stuart stock.

That is exactly what Paul Stuart charges now for its Masterpiece-quality shoes. Furthermore, when I was at Bennie's a few days ago, the new shipment are in Paul Stuart boxes with the original price tag of $678.

While a lot of these shoes are too desirable, they are, in fact, Masterpiece grade shoes.

Are vintage Florsheims a larger shoe? I seem to recall as a USA 10.5EE/11D/E wearer that I could actually get my feet into a pair of US10s once - JUST!

I've worn the plain toes and the wingtips and I thought they were a little large. Heck, I could get through the day with a 10B on my 10.25D feet, so there you go....(I wouldn't recommend this, and subsequently sold the shoes after about a dozen wears).

RLPL Mackays 11/11.5 dark oak - no reserve starting at $35. Looks like he's doing some shoe closet cleaning too.

I think vintage florsheims fit true for the most part, at least much more consistent than some of the international makers today.

There is some "wiggle room" on widths however, what I mean is that as a US 9.5D, I've been able to wear Es and Cs, and even 10 Bs and they all fit similarly.

In any case, I don't think they run large. They just have huge welts.

FYI, the seller is open to offers. I just bought up all of his Alden cordovan boots and longwings for a very good price - I'll offer them up on the forum for the same if they don't end up fitting well. Here are the listings for reference. http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...MEWA:IT&ih=002 http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...MEWA:IT&ih=002 http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...MEWA:IT&ih=002

I stripped them last night. I'm pretty pleased with how they turned out:

Too shiny before:


Warm matte finish after:


The after pic doesn't really do them justice. Once you get the shine off, there's a decent shoe underneath. The acetone left them a nicely consistent burgundy. I toyed with trying bleach, but figured all the broguing would be a nightmare.
