    I'm pretty sure that tag was covered in the first page(s).

    I looked through and found a few possibilities as to the maker of these, but I was wondering if anyone could tell me with some certainty....

    Pretty sure those are Loake, based on the nail and sole decoration patterns. Can't find this model, though

    Here is an example of a Loake sole: http://www.herringshoes.co.uk/product-info.php?&brandid=7&shoeid=3919.

    I recently did an investigation of some Peals, so that sole pattern is familiar!

    Old Edward Green (Belgravia) for Paul Stuart

    I know the top #'s are "size.width.last"
    Any clue as to what the bottom # means? Color? If so, does anyone know which color is referenced here?

    Sorry if a dumb question. My searching on here and with google turned up nothing, but somehow I feel like one of you will link to what I should have been able to find myself . . .

    I think the bottom number refers to the production run.

    EG themselves might be able to shed some more light on the shoes' provenance based on that number; they were superb in providing me with information on an old pair of tramping brogues and a pair of veldtschoen boots, both from the 60s. Their records for anything from that period are, apparently, quite sketchy though.

    Peal and Co made in England. I've read they're either AS or CJ, but the pattern doesn't match either example from the OP. Thoughts?

    That sole is not original. A picture of the interior markings/writings would be better.

    Cheers, lads. The sole colour made me think of Loake but the lettering inside made me think AS.
