This is a unique opportunity for collectors around the world: G.J. Cleverley shoes made by the master Cleverley himself.

This vintage pair bears the old Cleverley stamp with their Cork Street address. It means that the pair is at least 40 years old and were made when the master was still working.

This pair will fit a size 7.5UK best. Inside, it measures 6 cm wide on the heel, 28 cm long from toe to heel, 8.5 cm wide on the ball of foot. The uppers are 14 cm on top of the ball of foot from welt to welt, and 18.5 cm on top of the instep from welt to welt.

What's more, this model is the Tuczek-style elastic shoe that George Cleverley learned when he was trained under Nikolaus Tuczek, a famed London shoemaker for the likes of Winston Churchill.

The pair is made from alligator leather and has a soft round toe, slim leather sole, linen lining, elastic sides, softer heel support, clean stitching, and leather insole. Sadly, the original shoe trees have disapparated. The elastics are light blue inside.

I have restored this vintage pair by removing old, built-up polish, moisturising, re-dyeing, and polishing them. I've cleaned the insides with antibacterial spray. They can be worn immediately or added to a display collection.

The pair has been worn little, the sole is original as are all the other details. The elastics are still working and the lining has not torn, the alligator hide has not creased and has a strong shine. It feels soft and appears to be of exceptional quality.

A preserved Cleverley pair with this size, model, leather, and condition will not likely appear in the near future.

A similar pair made by Cleverley today would cost around 8,000 pounds.

I will consider all high offers and can ship anywhere in the world.
