    Cross post:

    Can somebody identify the manufacturer? Loake, Sargent?

    Any help is appreciated!

    Do you have a shot of the sizing information printed inside the shoe?

    Thrifted a pair of boots with some character. The leather is a little cracked but I'll work on them and use them as a beaters. Logo on the heel. Any ideas?

    What about these, a curious old pair of canvas sand shoes?

    I can hardly see anything in the picture - far too over exposed.

    These are OLD "peal" shoes... guessing (hoping) they are EG?? But any confirmation/help would be great. Also trying to figure out the size....? They fit like a US 6.5 or 7

    I would say, these are bespoke shoes, hence no size and just a six-digits identification number
    (which would have tallied up with the company's books).

    Peal left their Oxford Street premises about 1958 moving to Wigmore Street and closed down in 1965.
    So, those shoes were produced between '58 and '65.
