Not at all...that's what I would think They have been re-heeled if not re-soled as well

So then my guess would be that they are over a decade old and are shell cordovan made by Alden for Brooks Brothers and if anyone's going to bid on them, I hope you also bid on the shoe trees that go with them! (Seller claims they're made by Mackay? Well he/she was wrong about Peal, so... not sure these are made by Mackay). http://cgi.ebay.com/BROOKS-BROTHERS-...QQcmdZViewItem

I emailed the seller asking her if they weren't shell Aldens and she replied, "You are exactly correct. I have revised my listing. I also have put a reserve on the shoe of 100.00." And she amended the retail value to $568.

So now they're listed correctly as ALDEN BROOKS BROTHERS SHELL CORDOVAN BLUCHER SHOES 13B

So sorry if anyone was bidding on them! Sometimes it's better to keep sellers who don't know what they have in the dark! Hopefully it's such an odd size that none of us was bidding on them...

The shoe trees look exactly like mackay trees that I have from the same era.

they are my favorite unlasted trees.

You really screwed the pooch on that one.

haha If you are looking for a steal, you should just ask for more pictures to be e-mailed to you, not ask them to do research into increasing their reserve by 100%
