    I believe these shoes in question are vintage, bought used from eBay...

    Good to know. I have a feeling that I may also come into the market for walnut calf Jeffersons in the near future as well. I tried them on for size yesterday and they looked gorgeous and felt great. I already have walnut calf McAllisters but they are the wrong size 11.5D. After a whole lot of weightloss my foot had settled in to its new size, in the 5-last that's now a 10E.

    If anyone needs some calf shoes in 11.5D let me know!

    If I buy a shell Leeds with black edge, can the edges be sanded down to reveal a natural edge? I like the look of the natural more and I can get it a pretty good price now.

    I have seen that done before, so yes it is possible. I, personally, would not try it myself.

    Those look great. I can't believe I got mine for $125. Still trying to decide if I want to weather proof them and let them be rugged boots or shine them up a bit like you have here.

    BTW...what type of jeans are those?

    Can someone explain the following terms?

    1) Wheeled welt
    2) Split welt
    3) Reverse welt

    Been seeing these terms a lot recently.

    TJ,

    Here are the answers to your questions.

    1) Here is a picture showing wheeled. Essentially it puts little lines along the top of the welt. Regular welts typically just have the stitches showing.

    Regular Welt Example: Allen Edmonds Park Avenue or McAllister
    Wheeled Welt Example: Allen Edmonds Jefferson (or any Independence Collection Shoe)


    [​IMG]

    2) Split Welt - The welt line disappears (magically) typically under the heel of the shoe. This picture decently depicts the concept. Note that the stitching disappears once it hits the heel area.

    Regular (360 degree) Welt Example: Allen Edmonds Park Avenue or McAllister
    Split Welt Example: Alden Tasseled Loafers (Style # 563) (Sorry, that was the first one I found like this in my closet).


    [​IMG]

    3) Reverse Welt - There is a vertical piece to the welt that is stitched to the upper. Typically seen on slightly less formal shoes (Longwings, Chukkas, etc.)

    Regular Welt Example: Allen Edmonds Park Avenue or McAllister
    Reverse Welt Example: Allen Edmonds MacNeil or Dundee

    Hope that this helps.

    -Mike
