    as we seem to get a lot of threads on shoes, i just wanted to add another.

    7 pairs of shoes for 7 days could you, if so what?

    it is not easy, as i know i dont have a suade or a monk or a loafer here but i just have not seen any that take my fancy. so i am hopy for some inspiration from you guys

    so lets see your seven sins

    Here are seven (including a monk & suede for you) but I do have a pair in the works that perhaps will replace one of these. [​IMG]

    Those are some gorgeous shoes. How about adding a caption next to each so we (i.e. the newcomers) know what they are? Thanks! [​IMG]

    Thank you. These seven all happen to be from the folks at Cleverley. They are (from top to bottom):

    1. an antique chestnut Adelaide oxford shoe
    2. a brown buckskin Balmoral (galosh-type) oxford
    3. a black calf stitched toe oxford shoe
    4. a burnished London tan full brogue with thistle medallion
    5. a black calf quarter brogue oxford shoe
    6. an antique chestnut single-eyelet monkstrap shoe
    7. a chocolate brown cap toe oxford shoe

    The brown shoes look unworn. Maybe you should give them a good home.

    I'd have to double check but I believe they were made from me in the late 1980's or early 1990's! Believe me, they have seen their share of pavements...and are a pretty good testament to how well made and well cared for shoes can last a very long time. [​IMG]
