My jaw dropped when I saw these. Vintage Oxford boots possibly from the Edwardian or Victorian period made by Selz. It is a crying shame they are a size or two too small for me as I would have snapped them up in a heartbeat.

If they are authentic then they would represent an amazing buy. And the seller isn't asking a gazillion for them - nor are they skating boots.

Brown shoe fetishists (I know you are out there) may want to look at these ones as well but they are even smaller:

I hope they find a good home with someone who appreciates this sort of thing. They are nice enough that there are some who may want to buy them just as display items.

Maybe only change the laces? or leave it as made?

These oxford boots are brown.
