    ^ Hmm, the leather looks remarkably like a pair of my Church's in binder leather after losing its outer shine. I can be wrong, of course.

    Those things are so dried out. 2-3 steps in those, and they will crack. I can almost guarantee it. . . probably 70 years old.

    Probably Crockett & Jones (?) for $100 BIN OBO size UK 7.5E: http://cgi.ebay.com/350406985621

    The seller said that the inner of the shoes says:
    RUPARELIA
    HD6-22
    K23315
    7 1/2 E 236

    I think this is C&J on the 236 last. The double row of nails is dense -> C&J, not AS.

    ^ Hmm, the leather looks remarkably like a pair of my Church's in binder leather after losing its outer shine. I can be wrong, of course.

    That is an interesting observation re corrected grain/binder leather - something that for us is a post 1980s/90s thing - and getting bigger from my observation of the shoe shops around Sydney...de Tomasso are even going binder along with Churchs of course.

    I recently renovated a pair of 1940s Thom McCann spades and the quarters were definitely mild corrected grain with that typical dull/confusing cordovan type shine.

    It ain't necessarily so....
