    Vintage Cole-Haan Imperial Grade tan on tan saddle oxfords
    Size: 7D (?--see below)

    $40 delivered CONUS, Paypal (shoe trees not included)

    Vintage shoes from back when Cole-Haan was a great American shoe maker. These are grand old shoes that are built like a tank.

    The interiors are remarkably clean. The soles are very solid with very little heel wear, years of wear ahead. The uppers are, shall we say, well patinated. The leather is very high quality. It responded beautifully to some Meltonian and polish TLC. However, there are nicks, scratches and spots. They are perfectly wearable, fantastic knockabout shoes.

    I believe these are size 7. The interior size information is faded, but it looks to me like it is 7 B/[D]. They are certainly a smaller size. My 9/9.5 feet couldn't possibly get into them.

    I couldn't bear to leave these behind. They simply don't make 'em like this anymore.

    These have been cleaned, treated with Meltonian cream and polished. They are ready to wear out of the box.
