    Vintage Dress shoe appreciation, tips, maintenance and advice

    Wore in an old pair of Cordwainer Wright Captoes to work today. Love this pair. And the socks too, you can never have enough burgundy!

    Glad you like them, and glad they fit someone! I really wanted to keep them but B is just too narrow for me.

    I’ll PM you after the contest has all closed and they are yours. I’m going to see if they have any last details to finalize or if I can get some fancier pictures of them, etc.

    Thanks all. Wish there were several contests like this throughout the year, I quite enjoyed it. On a side note...Anyone here that can wear a 11.5B?

    The last pair of shells I worked over I did two rounds of VSC, then finished with 1909, with a day in between each. This approach worked well for me and gave them a nice shine, though YMMV. I just had a pair of shell AE Leeds arrive today that I’m going to give the same treatment to.

    I measured my 11D AE Neumoks outsole and that came in at just over 13” and some size 10D Cole Haans I have laying around which we’re just over 12” so I’m guessing size 10 is probably about right.

    Well then...Max bid placed and i'll let it ride. Thanks for the notice David! If I get lucky, my dad will get a late father's day gift to match this pair of Florsheim 92612 shell LWB I fixed up and had resoled for him a few months ago! These were made in 1969, when he was 10, and his first good...

    Asked a seller on eBay about the length/width of a pair he had listed to see if they would fit. He sent dimensions, then raised the price by $30 and declined an offer for the price they were listed at this morning. :angry: whatever dude.
