there are 2 levels of vintage imperials, one type typically has double leather soles and nailed heels, the other has rubber heels and no nails. The first is a better value. The one you pictured is the second type. Still, I think they are the perfect beater shoes that you can wear in the rain, to bars, to clubs, and not worry about, and still look stylish. They are still well made with goodyear welting and all leather construction. I would pay about $35 shipped for them, max.
