I'm shocked you got them that cheap. It is a nice buy

I own a pair of Filosofo's in black, because I'm aportnoy's poor cousin. Someday, I hope to have the cash to special order a pair of Vale's in plum museum calf. They're sweet!

_Women's_ dress shoes by Peal & Co. Kind of interesting although I leave the purchase of them to the more experimental among us.

yeah, it was in part because i didn't get back to the auction in time. i had a bid in for $35, expected to check it later last night, but got tied up at the redskins game yesterday and never remembered to check again.

i don't know why i was bidding, though, as i would have only worn these shoes once every 2 or 3 years.... if at all.

1998 is vintage now? It must have been a good year for shoes.

For $50, I dont mind leaving them on the shelf next to my EG Malvern Specs, which cost me significantly more and dont get much wear either

A little too wild for me, not to mention my foot is about 4 sizes too large, but here's a rather garish but unique peek at Florsheim quality circa 1930s. Aside from the perforated suede , a nce example of a classic wingtip spectator. The rubber heels and stamped soles look awesome . . . a sad relic of a once-proud American shoe-maker .

I think people vastly overestimate the age of vintage shoes. Very few shoes are older than 1960s. This is just my guess but anything from the 1920s would be practically crumbling or stiff like cardboard.

Yes, I was actually wondering as to the date myself. I have no clue how they figured that one, perhaps a receipt or a year listed on the box/shoe somewhere? I suppose if you were willing to do the work, Florsheim might be able to pin the date down based on the model or style number . . .

So I just bought these New & Lingwood shoes. Totally not my style but I figured they would be nice around the house. Questions: who makes them and are they velvet like the RLPL?

Look like velvet to me. Show us some pics of the inside marks when you get them and we can try to figure out who made.
