I started wearing my suede Leeds (I called them the covid Leeds) last year to run errands. I would often wear them with no socks and shorts. I stopped doing this because I noticed the insole was getting dirtier than my shoes normally do with socks.

@BFT9000, any interest? No weaseling intended.

Seriously considering buying these... dammit @ProfilaBinding.

If only they were EEE so @AEfaninTampa could have them instead.

Seller accepted my (kinda lowball) offer. Sooooooo I guess I'm now the proud owner of TWO Rush Streets!

That tan piping. I just couldn't help myself.

Sigh.

One odd thing I noticed about that pair is that there appears to be no burnishing on the toes. I'm not sure if the original owner stripped it off, or if they came that way. The shoes are the brightest pair of navy Rush Streets I have seen so far. Sorry about the weaseling.

They look a lot like the ones from the ad photo.

Light blue, not much (any?) burnishing. I wonder if maybe the lighting in the photo makes them look brighter than they actually are.

I don't think I've ever seen a sz. 8/8.5 olive Rush Street for sale. I may never have a chance to complete the trifecta.

Now that the Spectator craze is over, I can wear my Broadstreet just because.

Had to re-run some numbers on my Business Plan and present a revised version today. Needed some good mojo, which the MTO gray suede MacNeils seems to always have plenty of.

The Broadstreets did not fit me well, so I opted for a pair of NOS Florsheim Royal Imperial LWBs. These were made in June 1992 and now are waiting for their maiden wearing. I thought I would share some first pictures.
