    just purchased a pair of vintage royal imperial longwings and would like some identification help. they appear to be shell to my novice eye due to the rolls on the vamp. i will post pics shortly. in the meantime here are the numbers inside t he shoe. i could n o t find a match in the shell guide posting on askandyaboutclothes.

    They are shell for sure.You need better lighting and also 2 more photos. 1 of the inside footbed and 1 of the soles. This will help us to date them but I am already guessing early 1980's

    thank you for the help so far. i will add some better pics tomorrow. sadly the soles were replac e d when i got them. additionally the footbed was either replaced
    or all msrkings have worn off as it is just plain black. leather on the inside of the shoe is black
