These shoes look great!
Not mine, but I did check them out. These are 8.5D Dacks - made in Canada! Unworn and in mint condition. I know the seller is motivated and open to bargaining.
Nice shoes, but not worth 1/2 the asking-price. Maybe if they were the '50s version, but not the '87 edition.
It's also always a little off-putting to see the Value Village scrawl on the outsoles. Wipe that off before listing them for 20x what you paid.
Check out these beauties. Dad bought them around 1965 I believe. Unfortunately, too small for my feet.
Ok guys, I bought these recently from another collector. Unfortunately, too tight for me.
So I'm going to offer to the connoisseurs here first!
These are BRAND NEW, unworn Dacks. Size is 8 F (I believe the "F" was the standard "medium" back then).
Even original Dacks shoe trees will be included.
I'm listing them at $275 (original price tag of $299.99).
I'm open to reasonable offers.
My loss is your gain.
Haha, I didn't even notice!
I've been on this whole "buy Canadian" mode lately. I know I'm not "saving jobs" but it's nice to have some stuff still made in Canada. Who knows, maybe the current label Matthew Dack will restart production here.
Found these gems on Etsy. Made in Canada, Zebu leather, size 9C.
Nailed sole and heels. Lightly worn and still in great condition.
Hello, everyone. I've had these Dack's for a while now, inherited from my grandfather. I've been wearing them for formal events without thinking too much of it, but today I got curious about them and did a little research. I was wondering if anyone could help me figure out what decade these were made in. They have leather soles, with the Fredricton factory stamp ("custom grade - new brunswick canada), which I couldn't get a clear picture of because of age. Other than that, here are the pictures:
Any help with the year of this pair would be appreciated, thank you!
Oops, sorry everyone- I just found in another part of this thread Daxman explaining how to read the serial numbers. Sorry to waste time, haha!
